  • Marlins' Sandy Alcantara: Fires seven shutout innings

    Alcantara (11-5) yielded four hits and two walks over seven scoreless frames Monday, striking out seven and earning a win over the Padres.

    Alcantara was back to his usual self Monday after coughing up four runs against the Phillies in his last outing. Just one Padre reached scoring position against him as he turned in his seventh scoreless start of the year. He lowered his season ERA to 1.92 with a 152:43 K:BB across 173 frames. Alcantara is lined up to start in Oakland next week.

  • Marlins' Sandy Alcantara: Falls apart in eighth inning

    Alcantara (10-5) took the loss Wednesday, allowing four runs on eight hits and one walk over 7.2 innings against Philadelphia. He struck out four.

    Alcantara cruised through seven innings, allowing two hits and one run on only 71 pitches. However, the Phillies figured something out in the eighth, erupting for six hits and three runs off the NL Cy Young candidate to turn a two-run deficit into a 4-3 advantage. Philadelphia went 6-for-7 off Alcantara in the frame with RBI knocks from Brandon Marsh, Kyle Schwarber and J.T. Realmuto. Alcantara's eight hits allowed tied his season high, and it was just the fourth time this year he's allowed four or more runs. Regardless, Miami's ace still sports a 2.01 ERA across a league-leading 166.0 innings pitched.

  • Marlins' Sandy Alcantara: Tosses complete-game shutout

    Alcantara (10-4) gave up six hits and one walk while striking out three over nine scoreless innings to earn the win in a 3-0 victory over the Reds on Wednesday.

    Alcantara found himself in a bases-loaded jam in the first inning, due in part to his sloppy fielding on a softly hit grounder up the first base side of the diamond by Joey Votto. Despite throwing 22 pitches in the opening frame, the 26-year-old right-hander settled into a groove and needed only 83 to get through the next eight innings. Alcantara's performance moved him ahead of Framber Valdez for first in MLB with three complete games this season and lowers his ERA to a National League-leading 1.88. The Miami ace is expected to take his next turn in the rotation at Philadelphia next week.

  • Marlins' Sandy Alcantara: Coughs up four runs

    Alcantara allowed four runs on eight hits and three walks over five innings during Friday's loss to the Mets. He struck out five and did not factor in the decision.

    The 26-year-old yielded three runs in the second inning, including a two-run triple by Starling Marte, followed by Marte's solo shot in the fourth. It was the first time since June 24 that Alcantara has given up more than three runs, and only his third time doing so this season. His ERA still stands at a terrific 1.99 alongside a 138:39 K:BB through 149.1 frames. Alcantara is projected to face the Reds at home next week.

  • Marlins' Sandy Alcantara: Strikes out 10 batters

    Alcantara did not factor into the decision against Pittsburgh on Sunday, allowing two runs on two hits while striking out 10 and walking three over six innings.

    Alcantara left the game with the Marlins up 3-2, but he did not factor into the decision as the Pirates ended up tying the game, taking it into the 10th inning. Alcantara threw 70 of 105 pitches for strikes and had double-digit strikeouts in a game for the third time this month. The righty has allowed just four earned runs in 29 innings this month, good for a 1.24 July ERA. He will take a 1.81 season ERA into his next appearance.

  • Marlins' Sandy Alcantara: Fans 12 in tough loss

    Alcantara (9-4) took the loss Friday as the Marlins were downed 2-1 by the Phillies, giving up two runs on four hits and two walks over eight innings. He struck out 12.

    The right-hander delivered his usual throwback performance, lasting at least seven innings for an incredible 13th straight start on an efficient 106 pitches (75 strikes), and Alcantara took a shutout into the seventh inning before finally stumbling. Unfortunately, the Miami offense gave him almost no support. Alcantara boasts a 1.31 ERA, 0.76 WHIP and 92:17 K:BB through 102.2 innings over that 13-outing stretch as he heads into his second All-Star Game appearance, and potentially the start for the NL squad.

The 26-year-old has fired 15 shutout innings over his last two starts, lowering his season ERA to 1.73 across a league-leading 130.1 frames. Over his last 12 outings, he's sporting an outstanding 1.24 ERA with an 80:15 K:BB. Alcantara is projected to face the Phillies at home next week.

  • Marlins' Sandy Alcantara: Fans 10 in ninth win

    Alcantara (9-3) picked up the win Tuesday, scattering two hits over eight scoreless innings in a 2-1 victory over the Angels. He struck out 10 without walking a batter.

    The right-hander nearly became the first hurler since Corey Kluber in 2017 to toss back-to-back nine inning complete games, but Marlins manager Don Mattingly elected to hand the ball to closer Tanner Scott in the ninth this time around. Alcantara still continued the dominance that got him named NL Pitcher of the Month for June, and he's compiled a stunning 1.62 ERA, 0.79 ERA and 44:8 K:BB through 55.2 innings -- averaging nearly eight innings an outing -- since the beginning of last month.

  • Marlins' Sandy Alcantara: Goes distance in win

    Alcantara (8-3) allowed three runs (two earned) on seven hits and two walks with three strikeouts in nine innings, earning the complete-game win over the Cardinals on Wednesday.

    Alcantara spent much of the game pitching from behind, but Avisail Garcia gave the Marlins a lead with a two-run home run in the ninth inning. Alcantara was allowed to stay in the game, finishing it off with 117 pitches (76 strikes) to become the first pitcher in the the majors to toss multiple complete games this season. He hasn't pitched fewer than seven innings since May 6. The right-hander owns a sparkling 1.95 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 97:30 K:BB across 115.1 innings in 16 starts this year. The ace will look to keep finding success next week at home against the Angels.

  • Marlins' Sandy Alcantara: Stumbles against Mets

    Alcantara (7-3) took the loss Friday as the Marlins were downed 5-3 by the Mets, giving up five runs (four earned) on six hits over seven innings. He struck out four without walking a batter.

    While the right-hander gave Miami his usual length, tossing at least seven innings for the ninth straight start, Alcantara uncharacteristically gave up some untimely hard contact. The Mets tagged him for two solo shots, ending a streak of 62 consecutive innings without serving up a homer, but the biggest blow against Alcantara was a bases-loaded double by Francisco Lindor. Despite the stumble, the Marlins' ace still boasts a 1.40 ERA, 0.76 WHIP and 63:12 K:BB through 70.2 innings over that nine-start stretch.
