DeSclafani (4-1) tossed seven innings of one-run ball to earn the win Monday against the Indians, allowing five hits with two walks and three strikeouts.
DeSclafani wasn't especially dominant in any respect, but he induced plenty of weak contact and benefited from a clean defensive performance behind him. His only real mistake came on a solo home run from Yonder Alonso in the fourth inning, but he allowed just one other runner past first base on the evening. DeSclafani's gem comes as a bit of a surprise after he'd allowed nine earned runs across 11.2 innings in his last two starts, but it nonetheless lowered his ERA to a respectable 4.43 heading into this weekend's matchup with the Cardinals.
DeSclafani gave up five runs on six hits and one walk while striking out five over 5.1 innings against the White Sox on Tuesday. He did not factor in the decision.
The two rebuilding clubs combined to score 20 runs in this one, so neither start factored in the decision, despite DeSclafani and his counterpart Lucas Giolito failing to prevent runs at acceptable clips. Thursday's off day may allow DeSclafani to get a two-start week next week, with the first start coming Monday in Cleveland and the second coming in St. Louis.
DeSclafani allowed four earned runs on five hits and a walk while striking out six across 6.1 innings Thursday against the Brewers. He did not factor into the decision.
DeSclafani pitched fairly well, with the main blemish of his line being a two-run home run by Jesus Aguilar. Otherwise, he did not allow an extra-base hit, and his two other earned runs came from Amir Garrett's failure to strand inherited runners. While DeSclafani's 4.45 ERA and 1.27 WHIP aren't particularly inspiring, he has has now completed 6.1 innings in each of his past two starts as he continues to work back from an oblique injury that cost him the first two months of his season. To improve those ratio stats, he'll need to limit the long ball, as he has allowed 1.9 HR/9 in 28.1 innings this season.
DeSclafani (3-1) allowed two earned runs on three hits and four walks while striking out three across 6.1 innings to earn the win Saturday against the Cubs.
DeSclafani managed his longest outing of the season -- in terms of both number of pitches and outs recorded -- against the dangerous Cubs lineup. However, he wasn't especially deceptive as he generated only three strikeouts and allowed two home runs. The long ball has emerged as a concern as he has now allowed five home runs in 22 innings pitched. However, he is trending in the correct direction as he has seen improved results in each of his starts since coming off the disabled list on June 5.
DeSclafani (2-1) allowed two runs on three hits and one walk across 5.2 innings en route to a win Sunday against the Pirates. He struck out four.
DeSclafani recorded his longest outing since returning and limited baserunners to great effect, with his only two real mistakes coming on solo home runs in the second and fifth innings. He threw an impressive 68 percent of his pitches for strikes and fired in first-pitch strikes to 16 of 21 batters. DeSclafani struggled in his first outing of the season, but he's gotten progressively better with each start and owns a solid 15:4 K:BB over 15.2 total innings. He'll look to continue rounding into form Saturday against the Cubs.
