Top Eric Lauer News

  • Brewers' Eric Lauer: Yields two homers in loss

    Lauer (8-4) took the loss Friday versus the Cardinals, allowing three runs on five hits and two walks while striking out five in six innings.

    Lauer didn't give up a lot, but he was tagged for home runs by Paul Goldschmidt in the first inning and Nolan Arenado in the sixth to account for all of the runs on his line. This marked the first time Lauer's logged consecutive quality starts since a four-start streak from April 18 to May 6. The southpaw owns a 3.64 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 116:42 K:BB through 118.2 innings across 21 outings this season. He's projected for a difficult home start versus the Dodgers next week.

  • Brewers' Eric Lauer: Sharp in eighth win

    Lauer (8-3) allowed a run on six hits and three walks while striking out four over seven innings, earning the win Friday over the Reds.

    Lauer threw 68 of 100 pitches for strikes and limited the damage to a Kyle Farmer RBI single in the fifth inning. Lauer has allowed exactly one run in four of his last six starts, though he has only two wins to go with four no-decisions in that span. The southpaw continues to show improvement after a rough June, and his ERA is down to 3.59 with a 1.22 WHIP and 111:40 K:BB through 112.2 innings across 20 starts this year. He's lined up for an NL Central showdown against the Cardinals in St. Louis next week.

  • Brewers' Eric Lauer: Picks up seventh win

    Lauer (7-3) earned the win over Boston on Saturday, pitching five innings and allowing one run on four hits and three walks while striking out four batters.

    Lauer wasn't at his most efficient in the outing -- he needed 94 pitches to complete five frames and walked three batters for his third straight game -- but he stuck around just long enough to earn his first victory since mid-June. The lefty hurler's success was partly due to keeping the ball in the park for the first time in his past five starts. Lauer has been effective as a mid-rotation starter for the Brewers, complementing his seven wins with a 3.75 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 107:37 K:BB across 105.2 innings.

  • Brewers' Eric Lauer: Ineffective in no-decision

    Lauer allowed four runs on six hits and three walks, striking out three in 4.1 innings of a 10-9 win Sunday over Colorado. He did not factor into the decision.

    Lauer managed to hold Colorado to two runs through the first four innings but couldn't make it through the fifth after Kris Bryant smashed a two-run homer with one out. It was the 20th homer the lefty has allowed in 100.2 innings this season, 12 of which have come in his last 44 innings of work. He's managed to compile a 3.84 ERA, but peripheral stats suggest that he's been fairly lucky in his 18 starts. He'll need to figure out a way to keep the ball in the ballpark over the last two months of the season to maintain decent production. His next start will likely be next weekend in Boston.

  • Brewers' Eric Lauer: Goes seven innings in no-decision

    Lauer allowed a run on two hits and three walks while striking out four over seven innings in a no-decision versus the Giants on Saturday.

    Lauer limited the damage to a Darin Ruf solo home run in the sixth inning, though the Giants scraped together another run against the Brewers' bullpen in the eighth. This was the third time this season Lauer's managed to complete seven frames. He's given up eight runs (seven earned) in 22.1 innings across his last four starts, trimming his ERA from 3.89 prior to that stretch to 3.64 at the end of the first half of the season. The southpaw has added a 1.16 WHIP and 100:31 K:BB in 96.1 innings across 17 starts.

  • Brewers' Eric Lauer: Fans seven in no-decision

    Lauer allowed three runs (two earned) on six hits and a walk, striking out seven in five innings in an 8-6 loss Sunday against Pittsburgh. He did not factor into the decision.

    Lauer gave up a run in the second, fourth and fifth innings. The Pirates had runners in scoring position in each of the first three innings, leading to two runs. The final run against the lefty came on a solo blast by Ke'Bryan Hayes with two outs in the fifth. Lauer has allowed 10 homers in his last 32.2 innings spanning six starts, and his 18 homers allowed on the season is the second-most in the National League. He'll likely take the mound one more time before the All-Star break when the Brewers face the Giants this weekend in San Francisco.

  • Brewers' Eric Lauer: Fans nine in no-decision

    Lauer allowed one run on two hits and two walks over six innings in Monday's win over the Cubs. He struck out nine and did not factor in the decision.

    Lauer served up a solo homer to Nelson Velazquez in the third inning but was otherwise dominant. It was the first time he allowed fewer than three runs since May 26; he posted a brutal 6.54 ERA over his previous six outings. The 27-year-old southpaw now owns a strong 89:27 K:BB with a 3.84 ERA through 84.1 innings this season. Lauer is lined up to face the Pirates at home this weekend.

  • Brewers' Eric Lauer: Lasts 4.1 frames in no-decision

    Lauer allowed three runs on six hits and two walks over 4.1 innings during Wednesday's 5-3 win against the Rays. He had three strikeouts and didn't factor in the decision.

    Lauer generated only eight swinging strikes on 92 total pitches, and he was pulled during the fifth inning after being unable to maintain a 3-2 lead. The left-hander posted a 2.38 ERA through his first 10 outings of the year, but he's surrendered 20 runs in his past four starts. He tentatively lines up for a matchup with the Cubs early next week.

  • Brewers' Eric Lauer: Yields five runs in loss

    Lauer (6-3) allowed five runs on six hits and a walk with five strikeouts in six innings, taking the loss Wednesday versus the Cardinals.

    Lauer's start was bookended by two-run home runs -- he gave up one to Paul Goldschmidt in the first inning and another to Nolan Arenado in the sixth. The long ball has become a problem for Lauer recently, as he's allowed eight across his last three starts. Those recent struggles have pushed his ERA up to 3.89 with a 1.19 WHIP and 77:23 K:BB across 74 innings overall. The southpaw is lined up for a road start versus the Rays next week.

  • Brewers' Eric Lauer: Coughs up three homers

    Lauer allowed four runs on six hits and a walk over 6.1 innings in Friday's win over the Reds and picked up his sixth victory of the season.

    Lauer cruised through four shutout frames before yielding three homers. Albert Almora hit a two-run shot in the fifth before Brandon Drury and Tommy Pham went back-to-back in the sixth. Lauer has given up three homers in two straight outings, raising his season ERA to 3.57 through 12 starts. The 27-year-old is projected to face the Cardinals at home next week.

  • Brewers' Eric Lauer: Hammered by Nats

    Lauer (5-2) took the loss Saturday, surrendering eight runs on seven hits -- including three home runs -- and four walks over five innings as the Brewers were downed 8-6 by the Nationals. He struck out two.

    The Nats hung a pair of four-spots on Lauer, including a fifth inning in which the southpaw served up back-to-back-to-back homers to Juan Soto, Nelson Cruz and Josh Bell. This was by far Lauer's worst performance of the year, as he hadn't allowed more than four runs in any prior outing, but his early season success appears to have faded. He's walked multiple batters in four straight starts, posting a 13:13 K:BB in 20 innings over that stretch to go along with a 5.85 ERA and 1.75 WHIP.

  • Brewers' Eric Lauer: Solid in no-decision

    Lauer allowed three runs (one earned) on six hits and two walks while striking out four in six innings in Sunday's loss to the Padres. He didn't factor in the decision.

    Lauer turned in a quality start after lasting just four innings in his last outing Tuesday. He left Sunday's game in line for the loss after a sloppy fifth inning, but the Brewers were able to force extra innings to get him off the hook. This was his sixth quality start of the year. Lauer has a 2.38 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 65:17 K:BB across 56.2 innings in 10 starts. He lines up for a road start versus the Nationals next weekend.

  • Brewers' Eric Lauer: Short start in Chicago

    Lauer allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits, three walks and a hit batsman in four innings of an 8-7 loss Tuesday against the Cubs. He struck out six and did not factor into the decision.

    Lauer tossed 27 pitches in the first and 31 more in the fourth, allowing runs in each inning. All in all, he threw only 55 of 89 pitches for strikes. After issuing just eight free passes in his first seven starts, the lefty has walked seven batters over his last two starts, spanning nine innings. Despite the recent hiccup, Lauer still has a 2.49 ERA and 61:15 K:BB rate over 50.2 innings to start the season.

  • Brewers' Eric Lauer: Moves to 5-1

    Lauer (5-1) earned the win against St. Louis on Thursday, pitching five innings and allowing two runs on four hits and four walks while striking out one.

    This wasn't among Lauer's best starts this season, as he labored with 96 pitches over five frames and walked a season-high four hitters while tallying a season-low one strikeout. Nonetheless, he was able to take control after the first two innings, retiring nine of the final 10 batters he faced and going just long enough to earn the victory. The left-handed hurler has been outstanding for Milwaukee this season, compiling a 2.31 ERA and 1.01 WHIP while tying for second in the National League with five wins. He's lined up to make his next start in Chicago next week.
