Williams (6-7) surrendered five runs on five hits and two walks across 2.1 innings Friday as he took the loss to Philadelphia.
Williams didn't last long, as the Phillies scored twice in the second and three times in the third before he was lifted. He's struggled over his last two starts, allowing nine runs on nine hits and four walks (seven innings). The 26-year-old sits with a dismal 4.60 ERA and 1.24 WHIP across 94 innings, but he'll look to bounce back in his next start, which is slated for Wednesday against Washington.
Williams (6-6) allowed four earned runs on four hits and two walks while striking out four across 4.2 innings to take the loss Saturday against the Padres.
Williams ran into most of his trouble when facing Wil Myers, who drove in three of the Padres' four runs. After a hot start to the season, Williams has now allowed at least four earned runs in six of his past 10 starts. With only 68 strikeouts across 91.2 innings, he presents a lot of risk without much upside, relegating his relevance mostly to deep leagues.
Williams (6-5) allowed three runs on five hits with no walks across six innings while taking the loss Sunday against the Diamondbacks. He struck out six.
All the real damage to Williams' ledger came on early home runs, which included a two-run shot from David Peralta in the first inning and a solo job from John Ryan Murphy in the second. He cruised the rest of the way and finished with a quality start, but unfortunately the offense could do little against Clay Buchholz and the Arizona bullpen. Williams has pitched well over his last two starts, allowing three earned runs with a 13:2 K:BB across 13 total innings. He'll look to continue his recent form in a favorable matchup next weekend against the Padres.
Williams tossed seven shutout innings against the Brewers on Monday, allowing just one hit and two walks while matching a season high with seven strikeouts.
He moved his fastball around the corners, throwing 61 of 96 pitches for strikes. Williams had allowed 17 earned runs in his last 18 innings and could've possibly lost his rotation spot with another bad outing. As it stands, the righty will look to make amends over the weekend against Arizona, against whom he surrendered eight runs (three earned) in three innings on June 12.
Williams (5-4) took the loss Tuesday, allowing eight runs (three earned) on six hits and two walks while striking out two over three innings against the Diamondbacks.
Williams was done in early in this one, as three Pittsburgh errors in the opening frame led to a 37-pitch, six-run first inning. It's the second outing in a row the 26-year-old has lasted just three innings, and he hasn't made it more than five in any of his last four tries. Williams now has a 6.36 ERA in eight starts since the beginning of May, all but undoing an encouraging opening month. He'll look to get back on track Monday against the Brewers.
