Cobb hurled three innings against Arizona on Saturday, allowing five runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out three. He did not factor in the decision. The right-hander breezed through his first two innings, allowing only one hit. However, things fell apart for Cobb in the third frame, as he gave up six singles, a double and a walk while watching five Diamondbacks cross the plate. He has given up 10 earned runs over his past 10 innings after a strong run during which he yielded only one earned run over 17 frames. The inconsistent play has resulted in a subpar 4.98 ERA, though Cobb's 52:14 K:BB on the season is more promising. He's tentatively slated to face Detroit at home in his next start Friday.
Cobb (4-2) won Saturday's 12-5 game over against Seattle, going seven innings and allowing five runs on three hits and a walk with six strikeouts. Cobb gave up all five runs in the fourth inning, headlined by a Jake Fraley grand slam, and fell behind 5-1 but Los Angeles was able to storm back with 11 unanswered runs. Cobb dominated outside of the that inning, retiring every other batter he faced with six strikeouts. He has gone seven innings in his last two starts and has picked up wins in three straight.
Cobb (3-2) picked up the win Saturday, allowing three hits and two walks over seven scoreless innings in a 4-0 victory over the A's. He struck out eight. The right-hander only fired 58 of 101 pitches for strikes, but Cobb mostly avoided ball fours and got plenty of strike threes in his longest outing, and second quality start, of the season. He's won both his starts since returning to the rotation from the IL, and Cobb will carry a 3.78 ERA and 43:12 K:BB through 33.1 innings into his next turn.
Cobb (2-2) allowed a run on four hits and struck out four over five innings to earn the win in Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader versus Minnesota. The right-hander missed two starts due to a blister, but he was effective in his return. Cobb threw 44 of his 57 pitches for strikes. The only run against Cobb came on a sacrifice fly in the second inning. This was the second time in six starts he did issue a walk. The 33-year-old carries a 4.78 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 35:10 K:BB across 26.1 innings. His next start lines up for next week versus Texas.
Cobb (blister) will be activated from the injured list to start the first game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Twins, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. The righty will make his first start since May 4, when he put together his best outing of the season by firing five scoreless innings during which he recorded eight strikeouts, albeit while issuing five walks as well.
