      Reds' Anthony DeSclafani: Earns third win

      Anthony DeSclafani (3-3) allowed one run on four hits and two walks across 5.2 innings to earn a victory against the Indians on Wednesday. He struck out two.Keeping the ball in the park the last two outings has done wonders for DeSclafani. He has yielded just three runs in his last 10.2 innings (2.53 ERA), and during those two starts, he's permitted zero homers. Over his previous five appearances, DeSclafani allowed nine homers and posted a 6.94 ERA. He's still not pitching very deep into games, but owners are undoubtedly pleased with his last pair of outings. Overall, the 29-year-old is 3-3 with a 4.43 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 64 strikeouts in 65 innings. DeSclafani is scheduled to face the Astros at home next Tuesday.

He's posted a 4.70 ERA and 1.35 WHIP with 62 strikeouts over 59.1 frames.

Unfortunately, there aren't many signs indicating this home run barrage could end anytime soon.

      Reds' Anthony DeSclafani: Tosses up three homers

      Anthony DeSclafani (2-2) allowed four runs on six hits with four strikeouts and no walks across four innings while taking a loss against the Dodgers on Friday.All of the runs DeSclafani yielded came off three home runs. Long balls have been an issue for the right-hander since the beginning of 2018, as he's posted a 1.9 HR/9. While DeSclafani's ERA (4.60) is better than it was a year ago (4.93), his HR/9 is a little worse (2.0 versus 1.9) and his FIP is virtually the same (4.84 versus 4.83). That doesn't seem to bode well for DeSclafani even maintaining an ERA of about 4.50. He is also 2-2 with a 1.24 WHIP and 50 strikeouts in 45 innings this season. DeSclafani will pitch again at the Cubs next Friday.

      Reds' Anthony DeSclafani: Struggles in no-decision

      Anthony DeSclafani gave up four runs on eight hits, including one homer, over just four innings Saturday night against the Giants to get a no-decision, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. "I didn't feel like he was quite as sharp tonight. He was missing a little bit in the middle of the plate with some of his pitches," manager David Bell said of DeSclafani. "Could he have gone back out and thrown two scoreless innings? Yeah, we believe in him that much. That was the decision I felt had to be made there. We had a fully rested bullpen."The Cincinnati Reds' bullpen rallied to throw five scoreless innings against the Giants, and DeSclafani was let off the hook early from a loss by Eugenio Suarez's game-tying homer in the fifth inning.

      Reds' Anthony DeSclafani: Earns second win

      Anthony DeSclafani earned his second win of the season Monday against the Giants, allowing four runs (three earned) over six innings. He struck out eight while giving up four hits and two walks.DeSclafani now has 44 strikeouts in 37 innings this season and has tallied eight Ks in back-to-back outings. With the Cincinnati Reds' offense finally waking up this weekend, perhaps DeSclafani and the other starters can benefit more if they keep pitching well. This actually was a little worse than his recent form, but after the Reds jumped out to a big lead in the first inning, it was more than enough.

      Reds' Anthony DeSclafani: Turns in another strong start

      Anthony DeSclafani allowed three hits and a walk while striking out eight across 5.2 scoreless innings Wednesday against the Mets. He did not factor into the decision.DeSclafani was particularly deceptive Wednesday, turning in his highest strikeout total of the season on the strength of 18 swinging strikes. Though there's little to complain about with this outing, it's worth noting that DeSclafani has gotten pulled out of games relatively early even when pitching well and he has failed to surpass the 91-pitch mark in any outing this season. That said, he's allowed only one earned run across his last 17.2 innings, striking out 20 in the process. He'll look to keep things going in his next start, likely to come at home Monday against the Giants.
