      Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Takes tough-luck loss versus Giants

      Jack Flaherty (4-6) allowed one run on two hits and one walk across six innings while taking the loss against the Giants on Sunday. He struck out six.Flaherty's only significant mistake came on a solo home run from Evan Longoria in the seventh inning, but unfortunately, that was enough to sink him to a loss due to a lack of run support. Decision aside, Flaherty threw 70 percent of his pitches for strikes and needed just 83 to complete seven strong innings. He had struggled in his two previous starts, so this was an excellent way to rebound heading into the All-Star break. The right-hander is more capable than his 4.64 ERA indicates and will hope to post better numbers in the second half.

      Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Struggles through 4.2 innings

      Jack Flaherty did not factor into the decision against the Mariners on Tuesday, pitching 4.2 innings and giving up four runs on seven hits and four walks while striking out seven.After giving up a pair of runs in the second inning, Flaherty appeared to settle down until a two-run home run by Omar Narvaez ended his evening with two outs in the fifth. He struggled with efficiency throughout the appearance, throwing 103 pitches and walking four batters. It was the second consecutive outing in which Flaherty failed to make it out of the fifth inning; he suffered a seven-run implosion against Oakland his last time out. After a strong rookie season, the 23-year-old has shown some regression in 2019, posting a 4.90 ERA and 1.29 WHIP through 90 innings. He'll get the ball for the St. Louis Cardinals in their final game of the first half in San Francisco on Sunday.

      Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Experiences horrible fifth inning

      Jack Flaherty (4-5) allowed seven runs on nine hits with one walk and five strikeouts across 4.2 innings while taking a loss against the Athletics on Tuesday.Everything was going pretty smoothly for Flaherty through four frames, but he couldn't make it through the fifth, and before he exited, Flaherty gave up six runs on six hits, including two homers. Home runs have been his biggest issue. Flaherty has allowed nine homers in his last 25.2 innings; that's a major reason why he hasn't captured a win since May 14. Flaherty is 4-5 with a 4.75 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 94 strikeouts in 85.1 innings this season. He will pitch next at Seattle on Tuesday.

      Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Fans eight in quality start

      Jack Flaherty (4-4) took the loss Tuesday as the St. Louis Cardinals were downed 6-0 by the Marlins, allowing three runs on four hits and a walk over seven innings while striking out eight.It was a strong effort, but the right-hander got no help from his offense -- his own ground-rule double in the third inning was the only extra-base hit St. Louis could manage off Jordan Yamamoto. Flaherty now has six quality starts on the year, and he'll take a 4.24 ERA and 89:26 K:BB through 80.2 innings into his next outing Tuesday, at home against the A's.

      Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Misses bats in no-decision

      Jack Flaherty racked up eight strikeouts and allowed four earned runs on six hits and two walks across 5.1 innings in a tie game suspended by rain in the ninth inning versus the Mets on Thursday. He will not factor into the eventual decision.Flaherty won't pick up a win for his troubles, but his performance Thursday was relatively encouraging after a rough outing versus the Cubs in his previous start. The right-hander had been chased after 3.2 innings in that outing, but he was much more effective from a strikeout perspective versus the Mets. Flaherty recorded 17 swinging strikes overall and equaled his best whiff tally over his last seven trips to the mound. The 23-year-old still sports an unsightly 6.43 ERA across his first three starts of June, however, a figure he'll look to whittle down in his next scheduled turn, Tuesday at home against the Marlins.

      Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Chased early by Cubs

      Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Fans eight in no-decision

      Jack Flaherty didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 7-4 win over the Cubs, giving up two runs on four hits over five innings while striking out eight.Solo homers by Anthony Rizzo and Jason Heyward accounted for all the damage against Flaherty, and a three-plus-hour rain delay ended his night after 77 pitches (56 strikes). The right-hander will take a 3.76 ERA and 73:20 K:BB through 64.2 innings into his next start Friday -- a road rematch with the Cubbies.

      Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Sparkles in quality start

      Jack Flaherty did not factor into the decision versus the Braves on Sunday despite pitching six scoreless innings, allowing only three hits without issuing a walk. He struck out seven.Flaherty deserved better in this one but was deprived of a win when Jordan Hicks allowed three Braves runs in the ninth inning. The closer's implosion should not take away from Flaherty's masterful performance, as he gave up only three harmless singles and induced 13 swinging strikes. He'll carry a 3.77 ERA and 1.17 WHIP into his next start against the Cubs on Saturday.

      Cardinals' Jack Flaherty: Yields two runs in no-decision

      Jack Flaherty allowed two runs on four hits with five strikeouts and two walks across six innings during a no-decision against the Rangers on Sunday.It was the first time Flaherty yielded fewer than three runs in a start this month, but the St. Louis Cardinals needed to come back in the ninth to help him avoid the loss. That was disappointing, but Flaherty did tend to his control issues in this one. He walked just two after he had given out 12 free passes combined in his previous three starts. Flaherty is 4-3 with a 4.19 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 58 strikeouts in 53.2 innings this season. He will pitch next against the Braves on Sunday.
