In a game during which the Cubs and Reds combined for 10 home runs, Mahle allowed three of them, including a pair of solo shots to Kris Bryant. It was the first time he's allowed more than two runs in any outing this season. His ERA jumped to 3.23 alongside a 41:11 K:BB. Mahle is expected to start in Cleveland next weekend.
Mahle allowed one run on five hits and two walks while striking out five over five innings but didn't factor into the decision in the Reds' extra-inning win over the Dodgers on Monday. Mahle had another solid outing with nothing to show for it in the end after Amir Garrett allowed the Dodgers' Corey Seager to tie the game with a two-run homer in the seventh. The righty's only blemish on the evening was an RBI single by Gavin Lux in the fourth. He's opened the 2021 campaign by allowing two runs or fewer in all five starts while posting a 1.40 ERA and a 36:11 K:BB over 25.2 innings. Mahle will look to continue his solid run at home against the Cubs on Sunday.

He also racked up 22 swinging strikes on 103 total pitches to back up his impressive nine-strikeout outing.

Mahle has maintained a 1.74 ERA and 31:9 K:BB across 20.2 innings to begin the campaign and will draw his next start in a tough matchup Monday at the Dodgers.

While he's been effective on the mound, he hasn't been able to pitch past the fifth inning yet. His next start is expected to be next Wednesday versus the Diamondbacks.
Mahle hurled four scoreless and hitless innings against Arizona on Friday, issuing four walks while striking out six. He did not factor in the decision. Mahle looked dominant throughout the outing, inducing 17 swinging strikes and proving unhittable for four frames. However, he ran up his pitch count to 92 and was pulled before the start of the fifth inning. Still, there has been plenty to like about Mahle's first two starts, most notably his 15 strikeouts across nine frames. His next start is scheduled for Wednesday at San Francisco.
