DeSclafani (7-2) earned the win Wednesday against Arizona after giving up two runs (one earned) on five hits and a walk while fanning five across five innings. DeSclafani was coming off his second shutout of the season and while he wasn't able to repeat that performance, he did enough to earn the win -- although he also received great support from the offense. The right-hander has come out on top in each of his last three decisions and owns an excellent, but probably unsustainable, 1.35 ERA and 0.65 WHIP in three starts this month. He's slated to make his next start against the Angels on the road next week.
DeSclafani (6-2) tossed a two-hit shutout Friday against the Nationals, striking out eight and walking one en route to the win. He got some help from his defense, as Mike Tauchman took away a home run from Juan Soto, but DeSclafani was nonetheless fantastic. He needed just 103 pitches to log the complete game shutout. Save for one blowup start against the Dodgers where he gave up 10 earned runs in 2.2 innings, DeSclafani has been excellent all season. This was his second shutout of the year and seventh quality start. He projects to start next week at home against Arizona.
DeScalafani won't start as scheduled Thursday against the Nationals since the game was postponed due to inclement weather. Thursday's contest will be made up via a doubleheader Saturday. DeSclafani will start Friday, while Kevin Gausman will be pushed back to start one of the games in Saturday's twin bill, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
DeSclafani (5-2) earned the win Thursday against the Cubs after tossing six innings of two-run ball. He allowed four hits and fanned four without walking a batter. DeSclafani has bounced back from an ugly outing against the Dodgers on May 23, in which he allowed 10 runs over just 2.2 innings, with back-to-back two-run outings. Thursday's performance was his third quality start since the beginning of May, and he owns a 5.15 ERA over his last seven starts.
DeSclafani took a no-decision Friday against Los Angeles, pitching 4.2 innings and allowing two runs on five hits and four walks with three strikeouts. DeSclafani allowed a solo home run to Matt Beaty in the second and another run in the fifth before being removed with two on and two out in the same inning. It was a nice rebound from last start's 10-run implosion and he's allowed no more than three runs in any of his other 10 starts.
