Gausman (8-1) allowed two earned runs on four hits and one walk while striking out six across eight innings to earn the win Thursday against the Diamondbacks. Gausman worked very efficiently and turned in his third start of the season that went at least eight innings. He continues to dominate his opponents, as he's now allowed only four earned runs across his last 36 innings of work. In addition to his eight wins, Gausman has also maintained a 1.51 ERA with a 103:19 K:BB across 89.2 frames on the campaign.
Gausman (7-1) took the loss Saturday against the Nationals, allowing two runs on three hits and two walks across four innings. He fanned four. Kyle Schwarber welcomed Gausman with a leadoff homer in the bottom of the first inning and the right-hander gave up another run on a Josh Harrison double in the fourth. With the Giants in search of offense in the seven-inning game, Gausman was pinch hit for in the top of the fifth, ending his day after just 64 pitches. Despite taking the loss, Gausman still boasts a sparkling 1.43 ERA and 0.78 WHIP to go along with an outstanding 97:18 K:BB through 81.2 innings. He should be relatively fresh when he takes the mound Thursday against Arizona.
Gausman had his start against the Nationals pushed from Friday to Saturday following the postponement of Thursday's game, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. The game will be made up via a doubleheader Saturday, and Gausman will start one of those contests. Thursday's original starter, Anthony DeSclafani, will take the mound Friday for the Giants.
Gausman (7-0) earned the win over the Cubs on Saturday, pitching seven innings and allowing two unearned runs on two hits and no walks while striking out 10. The right-hander served up a two-run homer to Patrick Wisdom in the second inning, though both runs were unearned due to an inning-opening error by shortstop Brandon Crawford. Gausman was nearly untouchable thereafter, allowing only one additional hit (a single) and retiring the final 15 batters he faced. The veteran has transformed himself into one of the league's elite starters this season, posting a perfect 7-0 record and ranking third in MLB with a 1.27 ERA and 0.76 WHIP. Gausman is also tied for seventh in the league with 93 strikeouts over 77.2 innings. His next start is tentatively scheduled for Friday at Washington.
Gausman said Monday that an MRI on his sore left hip came back clean, leaving him optimistic he remains on track to make a start during this weekend's series with the Cubs in Chicago, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports. The MRI was likely performed as a precaution, as Gausman previously said after his start Sunday against the Dodgers that he didn't expect to miss time because of the injury. Gausman will likely throw a between-starts bullpen session Tuesday or Wednesday before the Giants render a formal verdict on his status for the weekend.
