Alzolay (4-10) allowed three runs across six innings and took the loss Thursday against the Cardinals. He gave up four hits and three walks while striking out eight. Alzolay pitched pretty well, as he set a season high in strikeouts, but the Cubs' offense didn't provide much support in the 3-2 defeat. The righty was done in by two home runs, including a two-run bomb by Nolan Arenado, which accounted for all three runs against him. Alzolay now has a 4.58 ERA this season and is scheduled to take the mound again Tuesday against the Reds.
Alzolay allowed two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out two in five innings versus Arizona on Saturday. He did not factor in the decision. Alzolay was able to put an end to his five-start losing streak, but the Cubs' lack of offense early on didn't make it easy. The right-hander got off the hook when the Cubs pulled ahead in the top of the ninth. The 26-year-old has a 4.59 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 83:24 K:BB through 82.1 innings this season. He lines up for another road start in St. Louis next week.
Alzolay (4-9) allowed four runs on five hits and a walk while striking out five in five innings as he took the loss versus Philadelphia on Thursday. The right-hander didn't get a ton of help from the Cubs, who were limited to five singles and three walks in the contest. Alzolay gave up two of the three home runs Brad Miller hit in the game -- which is the fourth straight time he's allowed multiple homers in a start. Alzolay has a 4.66 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 81:22 K:BB through 77.1 innings overall.
Alzolay (4-8) took the loss Saturday as the Cubs fell 3-2 to the Reds, allowing three runs on five hits and a walk over seven innings. He struck out six. The young right-hander put together one of his best outings of the season, completing seven innings for only the second time while delivering his fourth quality start, but a lack of run support led him to his fourth straight loss. Alzolay will carry a 4.48 ERA and 76:21 K:BB through 72.1 innings into his next trip to the mound.
Alzolay (4-7) allowed six runs (four earned) on five hits and three walks while striking out three across three innings, taking the loss to the Dodgers on Sunday. Alzolay surrendered a six-run second inning Sunday. He lost control of his command and beaned the first batter, then followed with two walks. With the bases loaded, he gave up a grand slam to Zach McKinstry. After Mookie Betts reached on an error, Alzolay surrendered another long ball to Cody Bellinger. This was one of his worst performances this season, and he was pulled after finishing the third frame. The 26-year-old has a 4.55 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP with 70 strikeouts in 65.1 innings.
