Blach didn't factor into the decision against the Rockies on Sunday, scattering eight hits and giving up four earned runs over 4.1 innings, striking out one and walking two as the Giants eventually prevailed 9-5.
This marked the third straight outing in which the left-hander has failed to make it five innings coming off a stretch where he had done so for six straight starts, and his ERA moved up to 4.37 over 57.2 innings following his latest shaky effort. His strong start to the season was intriguing but he's been trending in the wrong direction and the .295 batting average opponents are posting against him this season suggests he's having a hard time consistently fooling opposing hitters. His 27:19 K:BB also doesn't inspire a great deal of confidence. He'll look to get on track in his next start, which will pit him against the Cubs in a road matchup next Sunday.
Blach gave up three runs (one earned) on five hits in a no-decision against the Reds on Tuesday, issuing one strikeout and one walk in four innings.
Blach pitched well Tuesday, but got tagged for two runs following an error and was later lifted for a pinch-hitter with the bases loaded. It was a nice bounce-back effort from his previous start, but still was his shortest outing on the season. Blach was only at 62 pitches when he was lifted in the fourth. The lefty has four quality starts this year, and will face off against the Rockies at home in his next start.
Blach (3-4) was hit with the loss after allowing five runs on seven hits and a walk across 4.1 innings Thursday against the Phillies. He struck out three.
This was a disappointing follow-up start from Blach, who held the Braves to one earned run over 7.2 innings in his previous outing. He was sharp through the first three innings Thursday before ultimately coming undone in the fourth, serving up a three-run homer to Carlos Santana to cap what was a four-run inning for the Phillies. While the southpaw still owns a serviceable 4.20 ERA through nine starts this season, his 25:16 K:BB across 49.1 innings leaves a lot to be desired from a fantasy perspective. He'll look to get back on track in his next start, which will come at home against the Reds.
Blach (3-3) picked up the win over the Braves on Saturday, allowing two runs (one earned) on seven hits over 7.2 innings while striking out two.
The left-hander threw 71 of 100 pitches for strikes in recording his fourth quality start of 2018. Blach's 22:15 K:BB through 45 innings is far from ideal for fantasy purposes, but he's only given up two homers to keep his ERA at a manageable 3.60. He'll look to stay locked in Thursday in Philadelphia.
Blach (2-3) allowed two runs on six hits and one walk across six innings while earning the win Sunday against the Dodgers. He struck out four.
Blach was stellar through the early going, allowing just one man past first base in the first five innings. He allowed a run on three hits in the sixth, and put the leadoff man on -- who later came in to score -- before he was removed at the start of the seventh. Still, it was a quality start from Blach against one of the better teams in baseball, giving him three in his last five outings. He will look to build on this effort next weekend against the Braves.
