Gant (4-5) allowed three earned runs on four hits and two walks while striking out four across 5.1 innings, taking the loss to Atlanta on Thursday. Gant shut out Atlanta through two outs in the fifth inning until Guillermo Heredia hit a solo home run. He then failed to get through the sixth frame while giving up another pair of runs. It still wasn't Gant's greatest start, but it was much better than his previous performance against the Cubs when he looked completely lost. The 28-year-old's ERA is up to 3.50 and he has a rough 1.61 WHIP. In addition, he has a poor 1.0 K/BB through 61.2 innings.
Gant (4-4) allowed five earned runs on one hit and five walks while striking out one across 1.2 innings, taking the loss Saturday against the Cubs. Gant had horrible command Saturday, walking five batters in the second inning. In addition, he surrendered a two-run home run to Ian Happ. Needless to say, Gant had an outing to forget after he retired just five of the 11 batters he faced. The 28-year-old had a fantastic start to his season, but he's recently faltered with 12 runs allowed in his last 5.2 innings. He has a 3.36 ERA, but a high 1.65 WHIP in 56.1 innings.
Gant didn't factor into the decision Sunday against the Reds after allowing seven runs on seven hits and three walks while fanning two across four innings. Gant had one of his worst outings of the season Sunday, giving up a season-high seven runs while allowing three walks for the third straight outings. Even though the right-hander owns a 2.63 ERA on the season, his command issues are being more noticeable as the campaign advances -- he has posted a 16:13 K:BB over his last five games. His next start is scheduled for next week on the road against the Cubs.
Gant got the no-decision Tuesday in a 3-2 win over Los Angeles, pitching six innings and allowing no runs on four hits and three walks with four strikeouts. Gant held a powerful Dodgers lineup in check most of the night and only ran into trouble in the second and sixth innings, when he put two runners on base but was able to navigate the jam. This was his second straight scoreless outing against a quality opponent as the 28-year-old righty is now the owner of a sparkling 1.60 ERA across 50.2 frames.
Gant (4-3) earned the win Wednesday against the White Sox after allowing five hits with three walks and three strikeouts over five scoreless innings. The right-hander had a fair amount of traffic on the bases but didn't give up any extra-base hits to help blank Chicago across five frames. Gant has a 1.81 ERA over 44.2 innings (nine starts) this season, but his 1.52 WHIP and 35:31 K:BB remain causes for concern.
