Kuhl didn't factor into the decision during Sunday's 6-5 victory over Arizona, allowing five runs on seven hits and one walk with two strikeouts in five innings. Kuhl permitted a single run through four innings but encountered trouble in the fifth when David Peralta brought home four runs with a grand slam. The 29-year-old departed facing a 5-0 deficit, however Colorado was able to rally and erase a potential fourth loss in five turns. Aside from Monday's shutout of the Dodgers, Kuhl has surrendered 16 runs over his last 19.1 innings but his ERA is still a solid 3.83 thanks to the recent gem. He's currently slated for a rematch with Zac Gallen and Arizona next weekend.
Kuhl (5-5) earned the win over the Dodgers on Monday, pitching a complete-game shutout during which he allowed three hits and no walks while striking out five. Kuhl had been struggling entering the contest -- he'd allowed 11 earned runs and nine walks over his previous three starts covering 14.1 innings -- but baseball can be an unpredictable sport, and the right-hander emphasized that fact with his shutout against one of the league's best offenses. It was the first shutout of Kuhl's career, and he became the first pitcher in six years to accomplish the feat against the Dodgers, per Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic. The veteran has had an up-and-down campaign, but his 3.49 ERA and 1.31 WHIP are currently career-best marks. He's a shaky option in fantasy, however, given his home field and career-low 17.5 percent strikeout rate.
Kuhl (4-5) allowed four earned runs on six hits and two walks while striking out three across five innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Marlins. Kuhl delivered four scoreless frames but allowed four runs during the third inning, capped by a two-run homer fromGarrett Cooper. After a strong start to the season, Kuhl has allowed four or more earned runs in four of his last eight starts -- three of which have come on the road. That stretch has inflated his ERA to 3.95, and he also has a 52:29 K:BB across 58.1 innings.
Kuhl (4-4) allowed three runs (two earned) on seven hits and two walks while striking out seven across five innings to take the loss Thursday against the Guardians. Kuhl allowed four hits in the second inning to account for all three of his runs. He was sharp otherwise and recorded his third start with at least seven strikeouts this season. Kuhl has maintained a 3.46 ERA across his last five starts, though he has a 1.77 WHIP while issuing 14 free passes across 26 frames.
Kuhl (4-3) took the loss Friday versus the Padres. He allowed five runs on eight hits and five walks with one strikeout in 4.1 innings. Kuhl followed up one of his best starts of the season last Friday versus Atlanta with one of his worst this time out. The five walks were a season high, and the eight hits allowed matched a season high as well. The right-hander now has a 3.70 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 42:25 K:BB through 58.1 innings this year. Kuhl is projected to make his next start at home versus the Guardians next week.
