Musgrove allowed a run on two hits, three walks and a pair of hit batters while striking out five in six innings in a no-decision versus Oakland on Wednesday.
Musgrove didn't have the best control Wednesday, but he was only punished on a second-inning solo shot by Jed Lowrie. The 28-year-old right-hander has strung together three straight quality starts, allowing just three runs in his last 19 innings. He has a 2.87 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 139:32 K:BB across 122.1 innings this season. Musgrove is projected to make his next start versus Miami next week.
Musgrove (7-7) won Thursday's 3-0 victory over Colorado, allowing three hits and a walk with 11 strikeouts in seven innings.
Musgrove required just 91 pitches to last seven frames, retiring the last eight Rockies he faced and striking out five in a row at one point. The excellent showing lowered his ERA to 2.94, a top-15 mark in MLB. The 11 whiffs are Musgrove's most since June 12.
Musgrove (6-7) picked up the win Friday, allowing two runs on six hits and a walk over six innings in a 5-2 victory over the Marlins. He struck out four.
The right-hander filled up the zone, tossing 69 of 98 pitches for strikes while delivering his first quality start since June 23 and his eighth of the year. Musgrove hasn't been able to recapture his no-hit form from early in the season, but he's kept battling -- since the beginning of June, he sports a 4.44 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 44:16 K:BB through 48.2 innings.
Musgrove allowed four runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out three in five innings in Sunday's loss to the Nationals. He didn't factor into the decision.
Musgrove held the Nationals scoreless in four of his five innings, but he allowed four runs in the third inning and was forced to settle for a no-decision as a result. The right-hander had posted a 2.08 ERA across the first two months of the season, but he's now given up at least four runs in three of his last four starts. Musgrove tentatively lines up to make his next start on the road against Miami on Friday.
Musgrove (5-7) took the loss in Saturday's 3-0 defeat against Colorado, allowing two runs (one earned) on five hits and two walks with six strikeouts in 4.1 innings.
A fifth-inning error by Eric Hosmer led to a Charlie Blackmon bases-loaded single that gave the Rockies a lead they wouldn't relinquish. The veteran right-hander's losing record is belied by an impressive sub-3.00 ERA (2.93) and 116:25 K:BB, and he'll look to get back in the win column when he likely makes his first start of the season's second half at some point during next weekend's series against the Nationals.
Musgrove allowed five runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out four over five innings Monday against the Nationals. He did not factor into the decision.
Musgrove gave up all five runs over the first two innings and was able to settle in thereafter. He allowed a solo home run to Trea Turner in the first and then four runs on four hits and a walk during the second, when the Nationals batted around against him. Monday's outing makes it back-to-back starts in which Musgrove has allowed five runs, yet he hasn't lost either of them because of great run support. Outside of his recent struggles, the 28-year-old still has a 2.97 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 110:23 K:BB over 94 innings and will look to head into the All-Star break on a positive note when he faces the Rockies over the weekend.
Musgrove (5-6) allowed five earned runs on four hits and three walks while striking out three across four innings to earn the win Wednesday against the Reds.
Musgrove neither pitched well nor long enough to earn the win in a traditional game, though he lucked out on both counts after the game was called in the sixth inning due to rain. He was taken yard twice in his short outing, which accounted for three of his five earned runs. While that is concerning, Musgrove has allowed multiple long balls in only four of his 16 starts this season and has limited opponents to 1.1 HR/9. Overall, he's maintained a 2.63 ERA with 106 strikeouts across 89 innings.
Musgrove got the no-decision in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Dodgers, allowing two runs (one earned) on two hits and two walks with five strikeouts across six innings.
Musgrove pitched extremely well outside of the fourth inning, when he allowed both runs and three of five total baserunners. While wins have been difficult to come by, Musgrove has gone eight straight starts allowing three runs or less and has lowered his ERA from 3.00 to 2.22 in that stretch to achieve a top-10 mark.
Musgrove allowed just four hits and three walks while striking out two over seven scoreless innings Thursday versus Cincinnati. He did not factor in the decision.
Musgrove and Cincinnati's Wade Miley engaged in a pitchers' duel for much of the game before the offenses came alive in the ninth inning. Despite allowing just six runs in his last 28 innings, Musgrove has not earned a win in any of his last five starts. He's maintained a 2.28 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 98:17 K:BB across 79 innings this season. The right-hander projects for his next start versus the Dodgers next week.
Musgrove (4-6) took the loss Saturday, allowing three runs on four hits and a walk over 6.1 innings as the Padres fell 4-1 to the Mets. He struck out seven.
The right-hander kept San Diego in the game while delivering his fifth quality start of the season, but his offense couldn't climb out of an early hole after Musgrove served up a two-run shot to Francisco Lindor in the first inning. Musgrove will carry a 2.50 ERA and stellar 96:14 K:BB through 72 innings into his next outing.
Musgrove (4-5) lost Saturday's 4-0 game against the Mets, going five innings and allowing three runs on eight hits and a walk with 10 strikeouts.
Musgrove was locked in a pitcher's duel with New York ace Jacob deGrom until allowing two fifth-inning home run and two baserunners in the sixth before being removed. The runs were the first allowed by Musgrove since May 14 -- his subpar 4-5 record masks an outstanding 2.33 ERA.
Musgrove pitched five scoreless innings, allowing just a hit-by-pitch while striking out three in Sunday's loss to Houston. He did not factor in the decision.
Blake Snell was ineffective in Sunday's game and manager Jayce Tingler didn't want to overuse a bullpen that had logged 15 innings in the last two days. Musgrove's only mistake was plunking Aledmys Diaz in the sixth inning. The right-hander lowered his ERA to 2.08 with a 0.76 WHIP and 79:12 K:BB across 60.2 innings this season. This relief outing is likely to be a one-off for Musgrove -- he should be able to re-enter the rotation on standard rest next weekend versus the Mets.
Musgrove didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's 7-1 win over the Brewers, allowing one hit and one walk over 4.2 scoreless innings while striking out six.
The right-hander breezed through four innings during which the only Milwaukee baserunner reached on an error, but Musgrove ran up his pitch count in the fifth and exited with the bases loaded after he issued a free pass to Corbin Burnes. Fortunately, Tim Hill kept any of the inherited runners from scoring. Musgrove will take a 2.26 ERA, 0.83 WHIP and 76:12 K:BB through 55.2 innings into his next outing.
Musgrove (4-4) recorded 11 strikeouts and earned the win Wednesday against the Rockies after giving up two hits and zero walks across seven scoreless innings.
The right-hander totaled double-digit strikeouts for the third time this season while throwing 66 of 93 pitches for strikes, and he lasted more than five frames for the first time since April 19. Musgrove has a 2.47 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 70:11 K:BB over 51 innings this season.
Musgrove (3-4) won Friday's 5-4 bout with St. Louis, going five innings and allowing one run on five hits and four walks with five strikeouts.
It was far from a clean outing for Musgrove as he allowed multiple baserunners in four of five innings and permitted a season-high four walks, but he was still able to pick up the win while allowing a single run. It was his first win since the beginning of April, when he recorded a no-hitter, so perhaps this could be a turning point for the righty.
Musgrove (2-4) was tagged with the loss Saturday against the Giants after giving up four runs on eight hits while fanning seven across five innings.
Musgrove has been roughed up by the Giants in each of his last two starts, allowing a combined 10 runs (nine earned) on 12 hits and two walks while fanning 13 in that stretch. The right-hander got off to an impressive start to the campaign by allowing just one earned run over his first 19 innings of work, but he has been struggling of late and will try to end his woes in his next start. He's scheduled to take the ball next week at home against the Cardinals.
Musgrove (2-3) allowed six runs (five earned) on four hits and two walks while striking out six over five innings to take the loss to the Giants ion Sunday.
Musgrove cruised through the opening two innings but ran into trouble in the third after issuing a leadoff walk and then allowing pitcher Kevin Gausman to reach on a fielding error before Tommy La Stella singled to drive in the first run of the game. Mike Tauchman stepped in next and would take Musgrove deep to right to put the Giants up 4-1. Musgrove would later surrender two more runs in the fifth before his day was over. It was the first outing of the season in which he let in more than two runs and he's also only managed 10 strikeouts over his last two starts after punching out 13 against the Brewers on April 19. He still owns a very solid 2.38 ERA, 0.74 WHIP and 47:7 K:BB over 34 innings and is in line for a rematch against Gausman and the Giants later in the week.
Musgrove is starting Sunday's game against the Giants.
Dinelson Lamet (forearm) was said to be in the mix to start Sunday's series finale, but Musgrove will instead make his regular turn through the rotation. The 28-year-old has a 1.24 ERA, 0.66 WHIP and 41:5 K:BB through 29 innings this season, though he lasted only three frames during his start versus the Dodgers last weekend.
Musgrove allowed two earned runs on three hits and two walks while striking out four across three innings in Sunday's win over the Dodgers. He did not factor in the decision.
The Dodgers were able to get to Musgrove early, forcing him to go deep into counts resulting in 77 pitches in three innings. Coming off a 13-strikeout performance in his last outing against the Brewers, Musgrove was only able to muster four punchouts on a tough Dodgers offense. The 28-year-old's ERA raised from 1.04 to 1.55 after Sunday's performance.
Musgrove (2-2) allowed two runs on four hits and a walk while striking out 13 hitters over seven innings Monday against the Brewers, though he was stuck with the loss.
The Padres' bats handed Musgrove an early 1-0 lead, but they went silent for the rest of the game, spoiling a magnificent outing from the right-hander. Musgrove registered a career-high 13 strikeouts but allowed a pair of solo home runs, which was enough to hand the 28-year-old his second straight loss. Musgrove is still off to a scorching start to the year, as he'll take a 1.04 ERA and 37:3 K:BB into his next scheduled start against the Dodgers on Sunday.
