Foltynewicz got the no-decision in Wednesday's 5-3 victory over Oakland, allowing two runs on six hits with five strikeouts in six innings. Foltynewicz was cruising through six innings, having allowed no runs on just 83 pitches, but ran into trouble when he surrendered a leadoff home run in the seventh followed by a double that ultimately got him the hook. It was the veteran righty's first quality start in nearly a month and he'll look for his first win since April against Oakland again next week.
Foltynewicz allowed four runs on six hits and two walks with four strikeouts in five innings in a no-decision versus Minnesota on Friday. The right-hander was tagged for three runs in the first inning and then allowed a solo home run to Trevor Larnach in the fifth. Foltynewicz has given up 17 runs (16 earned) in 11.1 innings across his last three starts. The 29-year-old has a 5.59 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 51:19 K:BB across 74 innings this year. He lines up for a difficult home start versus Oakland next week.
Foltynewicz (1-7) took the loss in Friday's 12-1 defeat at the hands of the Dodgers, allowing eight runs (seven earned) on eight hits and a walk with one strikeout in 2.2 innings. Los Angeles jumped on Foltynewicz early with six runs in the first inning, and he was removed with two outs in the third after allowing two more runs. After this disastrous outing, Foltynewicz's ERA sits at 5.48, and a total of eight strikeouts in 24 innings over his last five starts is difficult to stomach for fantasy purposes.
Foltynewicz (1-6) was charged with the loss against the Rockies on Thursday after allowing five runs on eight hits and no walks while striking out two across 3.2 innings. The abbreviated start tied for the shortest of the year for Foltynewicz, who struggled at hitter-happy Coors Field despite making his 10th career appearance there. He gave up only one homer via a solo shot to Charlie Blackmon in the third, but the Rockies found other ways to get on the scoreboard. It's been a pretty average season overall for the right-hander (4.31 ERA, 1.29 WHIP), though lack of run support hasn't done him any favors. Foltynewicz is projected to take the mound again Wednesday against the Giants.
Foltynewicz allowed three hits and two walks over seven shutout innings in Sunday's win over Houston. He struck out two and did not factor in the decision. Foltynewicz was dominant all afternoon, allowing just one runner to reach scoring position in his scoreless outing. It was his first shutout appearance of the season and he also tied his longest outing with seven innings pitched. The 29-year-old lowered his season ERA to 4.53 through 55.2 innings. Foltynewicz is projected to take the mound in Seattle next weekend.
