Fiers (12-7) allowed three runs on four hits and three walks while striking out two over four innings. He didn't factor into the decision Sunday against Tampa Bay. Fiers was tagged for two runs in the first inning and another in the fourth before exiting in a 3-0 ballgame. He tossed 45 of 80 pitches for strikes prior to being pulled. Since joining the Athletics from the Tigers on Aug. 6, Fiers has gone 5-1 with a 3.13 ERA over 43.2 frames while fanning 44. Following a short outing, he'll look to bounce back in a favorable matchup Saturday at home against Minnesota.
Fiers (12-6) gave up one run on four hits and one walk while striking out seven in six innings Tuesday in Baltimore. He picked up the win. His remarkable run since getting traded to Oakland continued, as Fiers is now 5-0 with 42 strikeouts in 39.2 innings (seven starts) in an A's uniform. He has won six straight decisions overall, and only needed 84 pitches (56 strikes) to cruise to this quality start. Fiers' next start figures to come Sunday in Tampa Bay.
Fiers (9-6) picked up the win against the Rangers on Monday, throwing seven one-hit innings without allowing a run, striking out eight and walking one in Oakland's 9-0 victory. The right-hander has been virtually lights out since joining the Athletics from Detroit, as he's now given up just three earned runs over 18.1 innings with a dominant 21:1 K:BB through three starts with his new club. He's been pitching well all season, with a 3.21 ERA and 1.16 WHIP to his name through 137.1 innings, but the move to a contending team in Oakland looks like it will put him in line for more wins than he was getting with the Tigers, bolstering his already solid fantasy value. He's scheduled to take the mound next on the road against the Twins on Saturday.
Fiers allowed one run on four hits while striking out eight over 5.1 innings in Wednesday's win over the Dodgers. He did not factor into the decision. It was a strong debut with his new team for Fiers, as he was perfect through the first four innings and matched a season high with eight punchouts. While Wednesday's outing wasn't technically a quality start, it continues the 33-year-old's hot stretch dating back to June; over his last eight starts, Fiers is working to a sparkling 1.93 ERA with 37:8 K:BB across 46.2 innings. On the year, he'll take a 3.40 ERA and 1.21 WHIP into Tuesday's tilt against the Mariners.
