Stratton (9-9) allowed four runs on four hits and three walks while striking out six across five innings to take the loss Saturday against the Brewers.
Stratton only gave up four hits but each of them went for extra bases, which led to Saturday's poor outing. He had seemingly gotten on track of late, allowing only four earned runs across his previous 20.1 innings, spanning three starts. Stratton will now work to put the tough road outing behind him and is scheduled to pitch at home Friday against the Rockies.
Stratton (9-8) pitched six innings Sunday, allowing two runs on three hits in the 4-1 loss to the Mets. He struck out two and yielded a home run while taking the loss.
Stratton was pretty solid all afternoon, with the only damage against him coming from a two-run homer by Michael Conforto. Unfortunately for Stratton, Noah Syndergaard was lights-out and gave the Giants little chance to provide run support. He'll carry a 4.90 ERA into his start in Milwaukee on Saturday.
Stratton (9-7) tossed eight shutout innings Monday to earn the win over the Diamondbacks, allowing five hits with no walks and six strikeouts.
Stratton allowed just two men past first base and retired the final 10 batters he faced to earn his first win in over two months. He threw 67 percent of his pitches for strikes and induced 10 groundball outs in this gem of an outing. Stratton was in the minor leagues as recently as the start of the month, but he's delivered a pair of quality starts while allowing just two earned runs over 14.1 innings since returning to the big-league club. He'll look to continue his recent resurgence this weekend against the Mets.
Stratton was called up from Triple-A Sacramento ahead of his start against the Mets on Tuesday, John Shea of the San Fransisco Chronicle reports.
Stratton has appeared in 20 games (19 starts) for the Giants this year, logging a 5.52 ERA and 1.55 WHIP with 79 strikeouts in 101 innings. But only two of those appearances have come since the All-Star break, as he's spent most of his time at the Triple-A level over the past month. It remains to be seen whether Stratton will stay in the rotation for a few turns following Tuesday's start, as he would be in line for an outing against the Rangers this weekend.
Stratton was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday.
Stratton earned his demotion after allowing six runs on 10 hits in just three innings Friday against Arizona. After getting some offseason buzz as a potential fantasy sleeper, the 27-year-old has struggled to a 5.52 ERA. The move could suggest that Jeff Samardzija (shoulder) is nearing a return from the disabled list, as the Giants called up two relievers (Pierce Johnson and Derek Law) Saturday but no starter.
