  • Matz allowed two runs on three hits and zero walks over five innings during Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Mets. He had seven strikeouts and didn't factor in the decision. The veteran left-hander surrendered a pair of solo homers but otherwise kept New York off the board, but he missed out on the victory since the St. Louis bullpen was unable to maintain a one-run advantage. Matz has a 3.86 ERA and 14:0 K:BB covering 11.2 innings over his past two starts, though he's also allowed four long balls.

  • Matz will start Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Mets, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Matz has had an up-and-down season to this point. Though he has posted two quality starts in his last three outings, sandwiched in the middle was an eight-run blow up against the Giants, leaving his year-long ERA at 6.40. The 30-year-old will look to take advantage of the opportunity to face a Mets lineup that already played a game earlier in the day, and perhaps down a couple regulars.

  • Matz (3-3) took the loss, allowing three runs on seven hits while striking out seven in 6.2 innings during Thursday's 3-2 defeat against Baltimore. After allowing a second-inning solo homer to Jorge Mateo, Matz cruised through the Baltimore lineup over the next four innings, at one point retiring 11 straight. He retired the first two batters in the seventh but then gave up a solo shot to Anthony Benboom and a single to Chris Owings and was removed. The veteran lefty allowed only one home run in his first five starts but has been tagged five times over his last two starts, spanning 8.2 innings. His next start will likely come early next week against the Mets.

  • Matz is listed as the starting pitcher for Thursday's game against the Orioles, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports. The southpaw was initially slated to start Friday against the Giants, but he'll apparently be pushed up to start a day earlier since Jordan Hicks (undisclosed) will no longer start. Matz should still be fully rested since he last pitched Saturday in San Francisco. Over his last three starts, he's posted a 9.00 ERA and 13:5 K:BB in 12 innings.

  • Matz (3-2) suffered the loss against San Francisco on Saturday, allowing eight runs on five hits and three walks over two innings. He struck out three. The left-hander's outing got off to an ominous start when the first three batters reached base via two walks and an infield single. Wilmer Flores ensured that the Giants took advantage of the situation, belting a grand slam to clear the bases. Matz gave up two more homers -- both of the two-run variety -- in the second frame and didn't come out for the third. It was the first time this season that Matz has given up multiple long balls in a contest, and it unsurprisingly resulted in the veteran yielding a season-worst eight runs. He'll try to bounce back in his next start, which is tentatively scheduled for Thursday at home versus Baltimore.
