Nola (3-0) allowed one earned run on three hits and one walk while striking out seven across six innings to earn the win Tuesday against the Cardinals.
Nola's lone blemish came from a solo home run off the bat of Matt Wieters in the sixth inning. Otherwise, he returned to exhibiting strong command, highlighted by 26 called strikes and surrendering only one free pass. After compiling a 6.84 ERA in his first five starts, Nola has allowed only two earned runs across his last two starts, spanning 12.1 innings. He'll look to keep his strong run going in his next start, likely to come Monday against the Brewers.
Nola allowed seven hits and three walks while striking out six across 5.2 innings Wednesday against Detroit. He did not factor into the decision.
Nola uncharacteristically walked three batters, causing his pitch count to rack up and resulting in a short outing. However, he was otherwise effective, whiffing six batters and allowing only one extra-base hit. After a rocky stretch early on, Nola has rebounded to allow five earned runs across his last 18 innings while generating 19 strikeouts. He'll look to continue his good form in his next start in a tough matchup Tuesday at St. Louis.
Nola allowed one earned run on seven hits and a walk while striking out four Thursday against the Marlins. He did not factor into the decision.
Nola took advantage of his matchup against the Marlins, turning in his longest start of the season and first quality start in his last three chances. He wasn't overly impressive outside of the ability to prevent runs, racking up only eight swinging strikes across 103 total pitches. Still, it was a step in the right direction for Nola, who now has a 5.68 ERA and 1.58 WHIP across six starts and 31.2 innings.
Nola (2-0) allowed three runs on nine hits with nine strikeouts and one walk across 5.2 innings in a victory against the Rockies on Saturday.
The right-hander has struggled with giving up homers all month, and at Coors Field, it became a problem again Saturday. Nola tossed up two bombs in the first two frames; he has now allowed seven home runs in just 25 innings this season. Opponents are also batting .300 against Nola, but the home runs are probably still his biggest issue. While he is 2-0, Nola owns a 6.84 ERA, 1.68 WHIP and 28 strikeouts in five starts this season. His next outing will be at home against the Marlins on Thursday.
Nola continues to struggle to start the season, as he's now given up at least four earned in three straight starts to give him a 7.45 ERA and a 1.66 WHIP through his first 19.2 innings. It's not the ace-level production owners are used to from the right-hander; however, his Cy Young-caliber campaign of last season leaves plenty of hope he'll correct whatever issues have led to this rough start and get back on track. He'll get a chance to do so against the Rockies in his next start on Saturday, but will have to contend with the ever-challenging confines of Coors Field.
