Gray (8-11) allowed two runs on three hits and two walks with five strikeouts in four innings, taking the loss Sunday versus Washington.
While he didn't get much help in the 3-0 loss, Gray's spotty control led to a lackluster short start. The right-hander threw 46 of 70 pitches for strikes in the contest. He's given up seven runs in 14 innings since returning from a forearm injury. Overall, the 29-year-old owns a 4.17 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 145:58 K:BB in 140.1 innings this year. He's projected for a difficult home start next weekend versus the homer-happy Giants.
