Fulmer was coming off a pair of rough outings that saw him give up 11 earned runs over his last 10 innings but he was able to bounce back and log a quality start in this contest to bring his ERA to 4.35 and his WHIP to 1.28 over 51.2 innings. He'll look to build off the solid showing in his next start, which will see him take on the Twins in a road matchup next Wednesday.
Fulmer (1-3) took the loss to the Mariners in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader, allowing six runs on five hits -- including two homers -- over 4.1 innings. He struck out five and walked three.
Seattle touched Fulmer up for a pair of homers in the fourth and fifth innings, sinking the right-hander to his third loss on the campaign. Fulmer was behind in counts throughout most of the evening, throwing first-pitch strikes to just 11 of 21 batters faced. He's seen his ERA jump from 2.80 to 4.37 over his last two starts with 11 combined earned runs allowed in 10 innings. The 25-year-old will look to trend back in the right direction with the walks and homers, starting in a rematch against these Mariners on the road next week.
Fulmer struck out seven but allowed five runs on four hits and three walks through 5.2 innings in a no-decision Monday against Texas.
Fulmer's only blemish through five frames was a Nomar Mazara home run in the second inning, but he was undone in the sixth as he couldn't handle the third time through the order. The four-run frame included a walk and a pair of doubles. Entering Monday's contest, hitters were 13-for-36 (.361) with a walk, a double and a home run when facing Fulmer for the third time. The necessary endurance and deception to get through the lineup a third time is often one of the toughest hurdles for young pitchers to get over, but Fulmer will have to do it if he wants to make the next step. He'll get another chance Sunday against the Mariners.
Fulmer pitched six innings and struck out five while allowing a pair of runs on six hits and two walks in Wednesday's no-decision versus the Rays.
Fulmer's day got off to a rocky start with a bases-loaded jam in the first and a couple of baserunners in the second, but he escaped relatively unscathed and settled down the rest of the way. Partially due to the labored opening frames, he needed 109 pitches just to get through six innings -- the first time he's exceeded the 100-pitch threshold this season. The end result was a third straight quality start, and he's mostly recovered from his one bad start (nine runs, six earned) against Cleveland. Fulmer will carry a 2.80 ERA when he takes on the Rangers on Monday.
Fulmer tossed six scoreless innings but did not factor into the decision in Thursday's 1-0 loss to the Pirates. He gave up four hits and a walk while striking out nine.
Fulmer has allowed two earned runs or fewer in four of his five starts this year and now has a 2.76 ERA, but he has just one win to show for it, as the Tigers have not been providing him much run support. The young righty has a solid matchup on tap Wednesday against the Rays, and if he keeps pitching like this, he stands a pretty good chance of grabbing some wins along the way.
