    Cubs' Zach Davies: Hit hard again Friday

    Zach Davies allowed four runs on six hits and three walks while striking out three over 4.1 innings Friday against the Brewers. He did not factor into the decision.Davies held the Brewers off the board for three innings but was unable to contain them after that. The 28-year-old allowed five straight batters to reach to kick off the fourth, resulting in three runs for the opponents. He then allowed three of the first four hitters he faced in the fifth to reach before being pulled with the bases loaded and one out. One more run would come in to score that would be charged to Davies. The right-hander allowed 15 earned runs over his last three starts and has not seen the sixth inning since Aug. 20. He now sits at a 5.49 ERA, 1.56 WHIP, and 112:73 K:BB over 146 innings this season and leads all qualified pitchers in walks.

    Cubs' Zach Davies: Gives up five in short start

After compiling a 1.72 ERA in May and a 4.17 ERA over the course of June and July, Davies has a 8.73 ERA over eight starts in August and September. The long ball has haunted the impending free agent lately, as he's given up 14 home runs in his last eight starts. He conceded just 10 in his first 22 starts of the season.

Davies has now failed to reach five innings in seven of his last 11 starts and sits at a 5.16 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 108:67 K:BB over 139.2 innings. He tentatively lines up for a meeting with the Giants his next time out.

    Cubs' Zach Davies: Strikes out seven in no-decision

    Zach Davies allowed three unearned runs across six innings and did not factor into the decision Saturday against the Marlins. He gave up four hits and one walk while striking out seven.Davies had a bit of tough luck, as a Sergio Alcantara error in the sixth inning extended the frame before Brian Anderson launched a three-run home run with two outs. That accounted for the only runs allowed by Davies, who recorded seven or more strikeouts for the third time this season. It was a much-needed good outing for the righty after allowing 14 earned runs across six innings in his last two starts. He's slated to face the Royals on Friday in his next scheduled start.

    Cubs' Zach Davies: Allows seven runs in loss

    Zach Davies (6-8) allowed seven runs across four innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Rockies. He gave up six hits and two walks while striking out just one.Davies was bitten by the beast that is Coors Field, and it's hard to have much success at altitude while only striking out one batter. Colorado hitters managed to put the ball in play frequently, and that led to two doubles and two home runs against Davies. The righty now has a 4.79 ERA and 6.31 K/9 this season, which makes him more of a matchup option at this point. Davies has a tough matchup in his next scheduled start Sunday against the White Sox, so fantasy managers may want to look elsewhere.

    Cubs' Zach Davies: Takes seventh loss

    Zach Davies (6-7) allowed four runs across six innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Reds. He gave up seven hits and four walks while striking out eight.Davies allowed too many baserunners, and the Chicago offense didn't do him any favors by not scoring any runs until the ninth inning, but the righty was still able to turn in a decent outing. The eight strikeouts certainly helped him get out of trouble, and he's now struck out exactly eight batters in his last two starts. The figure is a season high and a bit of an outlier for Davies, who came into Wednesday's contest with a 6.1 K/9 this season. He'll now carry a 4.39 ERA into his next scheduled start Tuesday against the Rockies at Coors Field as he looks to even up his record.
