Nola (5-4) allowed three hits and one walk while striking out nine in 7.2 scoreless innings to earn the win against the Yankees on Sunday.
Nola had given up at least three runs in each of his last two starts, but he returned to form Sunday with his first scoreless outing in nearly two months. The right-hander didn't allow more than one baserunner in any inning against the Yankees and has now earned wins in two of his last three appearances. He's posted a 3.69 ERA and 1.14 WHIP in 83 innings across 14 starts this year. Nola tentatively lines up to make his next start on the road against San Francisco on Saturday.
Nola surrendered four runs on seven hits and two walks over five innings during Tuesday's 9-5 loss to Atlanta. He had seven strikeouts and didn't factor in the decision.
The 28-year-old generated 15 swings-and-misses and threw 62 of 89 pitches for strikes Tuesday, but he served up two homers and struggled to keep Atlanta off the basepaths. Nola has a 4.06 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 85:17 K:BB across 75.1 innings this season.
Nola (4-4) earned the win Tuesday against the Reds after allowing three runs on eight hits and two walks while fanning two across five innings.
Nola didn't have major problems earning his fourth win of the season, but things could've easily gone differently for him, as he didn't miss many bats and the eight hits were his second-highest total of the season. In fact, he's given up at least seven hits in three of his last four starts while allowing at least three runs three times during that stretch, so Nola's not quite pitching at his best. The right-hander is scheduled to start again during next week's home series against Atlanta.
Nola allowed a run on two hits and three walks with six strikeouts across six innings in the Phillies' 4-2 win over the Marlins on Wednesday. He did not factor in the decision.
Nola pitched well enough to win, but Miami's eighth-inning rally against reliever Sam Coonrod denied Philadelphia's ace a decision. The right-handed starter has a 3.72 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 76:13 K:BB across 65.1 innings. The three walks he issued Wednesday marked a season high and he's now gone four starts without a win, a streak he'll look to end next week in Cincinnati.
Nola (3-4) took the loss Friday against the Red Sox after allowing five runs (four earned) on seven hits and a walk while fanning nine across five innings.
Nola's nine strikeouts were just one away from tying his season-best mark in that department, but he's also allowed at least three earned runs in three straight outings while losing in each one of those appearances. The star right-hander will try to bounce back in his next start, scheduled for next week on the road against the Marlins.
Nola (3-3) allowed three earned runs on nine hits and one walk while striking out eight across 6.2 innings, taking the loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday.
Nola allowed a two-out home run to Vladimir Guerrero in the first inning. All three runs came in the first two innings before Nola settled in. The 28-year-old has 3.64 ERA and 10.1 K/9 in 54.1 innings. It's not Nola's greatest start to a season, but he's still keeping the Phillies in every game he starts. He's doing a great job limiting free passes with a 1.5 BB/9. His next start is scheduled for Friday against the Red Sox.
Nola (3-2) allowed five earned runs on five hits and one walk while striking out four across four innings to record the loss Sunday against Atlanta.
Nola struggled early against Atlanta, throwing 39 of 58 pitches for strikes. He allowed a home run to Dansby Swanson to cap an ugly four-run first inning and later gave up a long ball to Freddie Freeman. Nola now has a 3.59 ERA with a 53:8 K:BB across 47.2 innings. He'll likely make his next start during the Phillies' weekend set in Florida against Toronto.
Nola (3-1) allowed one earned run on five hits and two walks while striking out 10 across six innings to earn the win Tuesday against the Brewers.
Nola allowed hits to two of the first three batters he faced, accounting for the only earned run against him. He settled in quickly thereafter and racked up his second double-digit-strikeout performance of the season. Nola has delivered as expected through seven outings, maintaining a 2.89 ERA with a 49:7 K:BB across 43.2 innings. He's projected to take his next turn through the rotation Sunday at Atlanta.
Nola allowed three runs on four hits and a walk while striking out seven over six innings in a no-decision against the Cardinals on Thursday.
All three runs against Nola scored on one swing of the bat from Matt Carpenter. Nola had beaten the Cardinals back on April 18 in a 10-strikeout shutout, and while he couldn't get the win this time around, it was another quality effort. The right-hander now has a stellar 39:5 K:BB over 37.2 innings this season, supporting his 3.11 ERA. Nola tentatively lines up for two starts next week with the Phillies slated to play seven games.
Nola (2-1) earned the win Saturday against the Rockies after giving up four runs on six hits and a walk across seven innings. He struck out four.
Nola might have allowed a season-high four runs, but he still earned his second win of the season while also performing at the plate -- he went 1-for-3 with two runs scored. The star right-hander owns a strong 2.84 ERA after five starts and is slated to take the ball next week against the Cardinals.
Nola (1-1) allowed two hits and no walks while striking out 10 in nine scoreless innings to earn the win against the Cardinals on Sunday.
Nola was tagged with the loss in his last outing, but he bounced back with a dominant performance against St. Louis on Sunday. The right-hander gave up singles in the second and eighth innings, but he didn't encounter much trouble in the first complete game of his career. Through his first four starts of the season, Nola has posted a 2.19 ERA and 0.97 WHIP in 24.2 innings. He lines up to make his next start of the season against the Rockies at hitter-friendly Coors Field on Saturday.
Nola (0-1) took the loss in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Mets, allowing three runs on seven hits and a walk over five innings as the Phillies fell 4-0. He struck out seven.
The right-hander didn't pitch poorly as he threw 59 of 92 pitches for strikes, but Philly's bats couldn't solve Marcus Stroman, saddling Nola with the loss. He'll take a 3.45 ERA and strong 18:3 K:BB through 15.2 innings into his next start, set for Sunday at home against the Cardinals.
Nola didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 8-2 win over the Mets, allowing one run on six hits and two walks over four innings. He struck out five.
The right-hander was mostly able to handle the traffic he put on the bases, but Nola ran his pitch count up to 92 (59 strikes) and was forced to exit before he could benefit from another big offensive showing by the Phillies. Nola has a 2.53 ERA and 11:2 K:BB through his first 10.2 innings this season, and he'll look for his first win of the season in a road rematch with the Mets on Tuesday.
Nola allowed two earned runs on six hits and no walks while striking out six across 6.2 innings Thursday against the Braves. He did not factor into the decision.
Nola held a shutout through 6.2 innings, but he allowed a walk and then a home run to Pablo Sandoval prior to being pulled. That cost him the opportunity to earn a win, though his effort was otherwise outstanding, as he needed only 84 pitches to work deep into the game. On an Opening Day that saw many aces hit hard around the league, Nola appeared ready to replicate his outstanding 2020 campaign.
Nola will start on Opening Day against Atlanta on April 1, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
The announcement comes as no surprise, as Nola has been the Phillies' ace for several years now. He's coming off a year in which he posted his second-best ERA (3.28), second-best WHIP (1.08) and best strikeout rate (33.2 percent). The Opening Day start will be his fourth in a row, and he'll become the first Phillies pitcher to record a streak that long since Steve Carlton made 10 consecutive Opening Day starts from 1977 to 1986.
Nola is testing out a cutter this spring, Tom Moore of the Bucks County Courier Times reports.
Nola threw the pitch a few times in his outing Tuesday against Toronto, though not nearly frequently enough that it can be blamed for his disastrous line, as he allowed six runs on seven hits in 2.2 innings of work. Nola doesn't exactly need to add anything on the back of a season in which he struck out a career-high 33.2 percent of opposing batters en route to a 3.28 ERA, but more weapons certainly can't hurt. There's no guarantee the cutter develops into anything usable for Nola this season, and he doesn't intend to use it very frequently, but it's possible the offering slightly improves his profile if it does indeed turn into a useful pitch.
Nola has allowed four runs on eight hits across six spring innings, striking out four while walking one.
It's not the best start to camp for the 27-year-old righty, but he'll still have a few turns in the rotation to get into regular-season form before his presumed Opening Day start. Two unimpressive spring outings isn't nearly enough to erase the dominance he demonstrated last season, when he cruised to a 3.28 ERA and 1.08 WHIP while striking out a career-high 33.2 percent of opposing batters, a mark that placed him sixth among qualified starters, one spot ahead of Gerrit Cole.
Nola (5-5) took the loss Sunday against the Rays, allowing three runs on six hits and three walks across 3.2 innings. He fanned six.
Nola was called upon to keep the Phillies' playoff chances alive on the season's final day and the right-hander struggled under the intense circumstances. After striking out a pair in a clean first inning, the Rays got to Nola for a run in the second. The 27-year-old bounced back to strike out the first two batters he faced in the third but then allowed a walk and three hits to get tagged with two more runs. He was pulled after issuing two walks in the fourth. Despite the disappointing finish to his campaign, Nola ends the year with 96 punch outs and a solid 3.28 ERA.
Nola (5-4) took the loss in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Nationals, giving up five runs (three earned) on six hits and two walks over six innings. He struck out six.
The outing qualified as a complete game, as the Nats didn't need to come to the plate in the bottom of the seventh. It was Nola's fourth quality start in his last six outings, a stretch during which he's posted a 3.03 ERA and 50:13 K:BB through 38.2 innings. The Phillies got swept in the twin bill to bump them out of a wild-card spot, but if they can rally over the next few days, Nola's final start of the regular season Sunday in Tampa Bay could be a huge one for the club.
Nola did not factor in the decision against the Mets on Thursday, pitching 5.1 innings and allowing five runs on five hits and five walks while striking out seven.
Nola got off to a rough start in the outing, allowing three runs on a pair of walks and two hits in the first inning. He settled down until the sixth frame, when he surrendered a Pete Alonso solo home run and was tagged with another earned run after departing the contest. Due to an even less effective performance by opposing starter Seth Lugo, Nola managed to escape with a no-decision, though the five earned runs he allowed were his most this season. Despite the less-than-stellar outing, Nola stills holds a 2.92 ERA on the campaign, which he'll look to improve upon in his next scheduled start at Washington on Tuesday.
