Smyly (3-3) allowed two runs on six hits and a walk with six strikeouts in five innings to earn the win over Miami on Sunday. Smyly collected his first win since May 14, but it wasn't an easy outing. The southpaw needed 91 pitches (64 strikes) to get through five innings. The 32-year-old completed five innings for the seventh time in 11 starts this year. He has a 5.63 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 49:20 K:BB in 56 innings overall. Smyly lines up for a home start versus St. Louis next weekend.
Smyly allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits and three walks over 4.1 innings during Tuesday's 9-5 win over the Phillies. He had zero strikeouts and didn't factor in the decision. The 31-year-old threw 48 of 80 pitches for strikes and generated only five swinging strikes. Smyly is winless in his past four starts and has given up 16 runs (15 earned) with a 17:7 K:BB across 20 innings during that stretch.
Smyly didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Nationals, giving up three runs on seven hits and two walks over 4.1 innings. He struck out six. The southpaw tossed 90 pitches (57 strikes) before exiting in line for his fourth loss of the year, but Atlanta tied things up in the seventh inning to take Smyly off the hook. He's still been tagged for 13 runs and five home runs over his last three starts (15.2 innings), and he'll carry a 5.98 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 43:16 K:BB through 46.2 frames on the season into his next outing.
Smyly (2-3) took the loss Wednesday, coughing up seven runs on five hits and a walk over 5.1 innings as Atlanta fell 9-5 to the Red Sox. He struck out four. The night got progressively worse for the lefty as it went on -- Boston scored one run in the second inning and two in the fourth before things completely fell apart in the sixth. The disaster snapped a streak of three straight quality starts for Smyly, but he's been incredibly volatile all year, and in his eight outings he has four quality starts and four in which he got tagged for at least five earned runs. He'll carry a 5.95 ERA, fueled by a 2.76 HR/9, and a 37:14 K:BB through 42.1 innings into his next start.
Smyly allowed three earned runs on six hits and one walk while striking out seven across six innings in the loss to the Pirates on Thursday. He did not factor into the decision. Smyly posted a quality start despite allowing three runs on a pair of home runs. The 32-year-old threw 73 of his 109 pitches for strikes. It was his third straight quality start after he struggled to start the season. His seven strikeouts were a good sign, considering he hasn't had more than four punchouts since his season debut. He has a 5.11 ERA and 1.32 WHIP with 33 strikeouts in 37 innings. His next scheduled start is Wednesday in Boston.
