The right-hander didn't get much help from his offense, but the unearned runs were entirely of his own making, as he committed two errors in the fourth inning to help put the first two runs of the game on the board. The 10 strikeouts were a career high for DeSclafani, but he's been far from a fantasy asset down the stretch, posting a 6.56 ERA, 1.57 WHIP, 2.0 HR/9 and 38:10 K:BB over his last 35.2 innings. He's set for one more start this season at home Saturday against the Pirates.
DeSclafani (7-6) allowed four runs on seven hits and two walks across five innings to earn the loss Monday against the Brewers. He struck out five.
DeSclafani pitched quite well up until the fifth inning, when he allowed a solo home run to Domingo Santana before Christian Yelich followed with a two-run shot of his own. Unfortunately, his pitch count rose quickly at that point and he was removed prior to the start of the sixth. DeSclafani has fallen on hard times of late, allowing 13 earned runs across 13.2 innings over his last three starts. He'll carry a disappointing 4.92 ERA into this weekend's scheduled start against the Marlins.
DeSclafani (7-5) took the loss Wednesday against the Dodgers, allowing six runs (five earned) on five hits and three walks while striking out five across 4.2 innings.
DeSclafani actually retired the first nine batters he faced before serving up a solo shot to Joc Pederson to lead off the fourth inning. He proceeded to allow another three runs on a pair of singles, a pair of doubles and three walks before exiting with two outs and two runners on. Both inherited runners came around to score, one of which was unearned thanks to an error from Scooter Gennett. DeSclafani has now struggled to an 8.03 ERA, 1.86 WHIP and 12:5 K:BB across three starts (12.1 innings) this month. He'll look to turn things around in his next start, which will come on the road against a tough Brewers team.
DeSclafani allowed four runs on eight hits while fanning three over four innings Friday night against San Diego. He didn't factor into the decision.
DeSclafani was knocked around early, with the Padres putting up two runs in the first, one in the third and another in the fourth before the 28-year-old was yanked from the ballgame. Through 17 starts this season, he's accrued a 4.56 ERA and 1.27 WHIP with an 82:23 K:BB across 94.2 frames this season. He'll search for a better outcome in his next start, which is slated for Wednesday against the Dodgers.
DeSclafani (6-4) allowed five runs (four earned) on eight hits and one walk while striking out five across six innings to take the loss Thursday against the Cubs.
DeSclafani's downfall was the longball, as he allowed a two-run home run to Anthony Rizzo in the first inning and a solo shot to Javier Baez in the third inning. Prior to this start, DeSclafani had gone three outings spanning 21.2 innings without allowing a homer while surrendering only two earned runs. However, Thursday's effort was an abrupt end to that strong stretch and marked his sixth start -- he's made a total of 14 -- this season in which he has allowed multiple home runs.
