Flaherty allowed one run on three hits with three walks and eight strikeouts across seven frames in a no-decision against the Pirates on Tuesday.
The 23-year-old is still searching for his first win since May 14, but he's now gone seven with one run allowed in each of his last two starts. That's quite an improvement on the 11 runs he yielded in 9.1 innings from June 25 to July 2. Flaherty is 4-6 with a 4.41 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 115 strikeouts in 104 innings this season. He will again try to get back in the win column in his next start at the Reds on Sunday.
Flaherty (4-6) allowed one run on two hits and one walk across six innings while taking the loss against the Giants on Sunday. He struck out six.
Flaherty's only significant mistake came on a solo home run from Evan Longoria in the seventh inning, but unfortunately, that was enough to sink him to a loss due to a lack of run support. Decision aside, Flaherty threw 70 percent of his pitches for strikes and needed just 83 to complete seven strong innings. He had struggled in his two previous starts, so this was an excellent way to rebound heading into the All-Star break. The right-hander is more capable than his 4.64 ERA indicates and will hope to post better numbers in the second half.
Flaherty did not factor into the decision against the Mariners on Tuesday, pitching 4.2 innings and giving up four runs on seven hits and four walks while striking out seven.
After giving up a pair of runs in the second inning, Flaherty appeared to settle down until a two-run home run by Omar Narvaez ended his evening with two outs in the fifth. He struggled with efficiency throughout the appearance, throwing 103 pitches and walking four batters. It was the second consecutive outing in which Flaherty failed to make it out of the fifth inning; he suffered a seven-run implosion against Oakland his last time out. After a strong rookie season, the 23-year-old has shown some regression in 2019, posting a 4.90 ERA and 1.29 WHIP through 90 innings. He'll get the ball for the Cardinals in their final game of the first half in San Francisco on Sunday.
Flaherty (4-5) allowed seven runs on nine hits with one walk and five strikeouts across 4.2 innings while taking a loss against the Athletics on Tuesday.
Everything was going pretty smoothly for Flaherty through four frames, but he couldn't make it through the fifth, and before he exited, Flaherty gave up six runs on six hits, including two homers. Home runs have been his biggest issue. Flaherty has allowed nine homers in his last 25.2 innings; that's a major reason why he hasn't captured a win since May 14. Flaherty is 4-5 with a 4.75 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 94 strikeouts in 85.1 innings this season. He will pitch next at Seattle on Tuesday.
Flaherty (4-4) took the loss Tuesday as the Cardinals were downed 6-0 by the Marlins, allowing three runs on four hits and a walk over seven innings while striking out eight.
It was a strong effort, but the right-hander got no help from his offense -- his own ground-rule double in the third inning was the only extra-base hit St. Louis could manage off Jordan Yamamoto. Flaherty now has six quality starts on the year, and he'll take a 4.24 ERA and 89:26 K:BB through 80.2 innings into his next outing Tuesday, at home against the A's.
Flaherty racked up eight strikeouts and allowed four earned runs on six hits and two walks across 5.1 innings in a tie game suspended by rain in the ninth inning versus the Mets on Thursday. He will not factor into the eventual decision.
Flaherty won't pick up a win for his troubles, but his performance Thursday was relatively encouraging after a rough outing versus the Cubs in his previous start. The right-hander had been chased after 3.2 innings in that outing, but he was much more effective from a strikeout perspective versus the Mets. Flaherty recorded 17 swinging strikes overall and equaled his best whiff tally over his last seven trips to the mound. The 23-year-old still sports an unsightly 6.43 ERA across his first three starts of June, however, a figure he'll look to whittle down in his next scheduled turn, Tuesday at home against the Marlins.
Flaherty didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 9-4 loss to the Cubs, allowing four runs on five hits and three walks over 3.2 innings. He failed to strike out a batter.
It was the first time all season Flaherty had failed to fan a batter, and his only shorter outing came April 16 in Milwaukee, when he got chased with two outs in the third inning. The young right-hander now sports a 4.08 ERA and 73:23 K:BB through 68.1 innings, and he'll look to rebound in his next start Thursday, on the road against the Mets.
Flaherty didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 7-4 win over the Cubs, giving up two runs on four hits over five innings while striking out eight.
Solo homers by Anthony Rizzo and Jason Heyward accounted for all the damage against Flaherty, and a three-plus-hour rain delay ended his night after 77 pitches (56 strikes). The right-hander will take a 3.76 ERA and 73:20 K:BB through 64.2 innings into his next start Friday -- a road rematch with the Cubbies.
Flaherty did not factor into the decision versus the Braves on Sunday despite pitching six scoreless innings, allowing only three hits without issuing a walk. He struck out seven.
Flaherty deserved better in this one but was deprived of a win when Jordan Hicks allowed three Braves runs in the ninth inning. The closer's implosion should not take away from Flaherty's masterful performance, as he gave up only three harmless singles and induced 13 swinging strikes. He'll carry a 3.77 ERA and 1.17 WHIP into his next start against the Cubs on Saturday.
Flaherty allowed two runs on four hits with five strikeouts and two walks across six innings during a no-decision against the Rangers on Sunday.
It was the first time Flaherty yielded fewer than three runs in a start this month, but the Cardinals needed to come back in the ninth to help him avoid the loss. That was disappointing, but Flaherty did tend to his control issues in this one. He walked just two after he had given out 12 free passes combined in his previous three starts. Flaherty is 4-3 with a 4.19 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 58 strikeouts in 53.2 innings this season. He will pitch next against the Braves on Sunday.
Flaherty (4-3) earned the win Tuesday, allowing three runs on three hits and five walks while striking out six over six innings in a 14-3 victory over the Braves.
Flaherty was spotted plenty of support in this start, allowing him to overcome a shaky fifth inning in an otherwise solid start. Flaherty has a 4.34 ERA and 1.28 WHIP, but also owns a 53:18 K:BB and 3.4 BB/9 this season. The 23-year-old will try to build on this win in his next start Sunday against the Rangers.
Flaherty (3-3) took the loss Wednesday against the Phillies by allowing four runs (three earned) on four hits across five innings. He walked three and struck out two.
Flaherty struggled with his command and control once again and he has now issued seven walks in his last two starts, both of which resulted in losses. The 23-year-old has a 4.32 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 47:13 K:BB, and lines up to take the mound next week in Atlanta.
Flaherty (3-2) took the loss Friday, allowing three runs on four hits and four walks while striking out nine over 5.2 innings against the Cubs.
Flaherty ran into trouble in a three-batter sequence in the third inning, walking Daniel Descalso and Kris Bryant before allowing a three-run homer to Anthony Rizzo. The 23-year-old then steadied but was removed after 5.2 innings and 110 pitches. Flaherty has a 4.76 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP along with a 45:10 K:BB, and he'll look to rebound in his next start Wednesday at home against the Phillies.
Flaherty (3-1) gave up no runs on four hits with one walk while striking out four through seven innings in a win over the Reds on Sunday.
Flaherty cruised through seven shutout innings to pick up his third win. The right-hander delivered a nice outing after giving up at least four runs in his previous two starts. The 23-year-old has a 4.06 ERA and a 36:6 K:BB through six starts this season. Flaherty will get his next start Friday at Wrigley Field.
Flaherty (2-1) allowed four runs on three hits and a walk, earning the victory over Milwaukee on Monday. He struck out 10 batters and gave up three home runs.
It wasn't too bad of an outing for Flaherty, who cruised through four perfect innings before allowing a trio long balls over the next two frames. It was also his first double-digit strikeout game of 2019, giving him stellar 32:5 K:BB in 24 innings. The young right-hander will carry a 5.25 ERA into Sunday's tilt with the Reds.
Flaherty (1-1) took the loss Tuesday, allowing five runs on nine hits and one walk while striking out four over 2.2 innings against Milwaukee.
Flaherty wasn't fooling the Brewers, and permitted all five runs in the third inning highlighted by homers from Lorenzo Cain and Yasmani Grandal. The 23-year-old was removed with two outs in the third inning after 75 pitches. The poor outing inflates his ERA to 5.00 and his WHIP to 1.61 after four starts, and he'll look to rebound in a rematch with Milwaukee at home Monday.
Flaherty (1-0) gave up one run on three hits with no walks while striking out eight through six innings in a win over the Dodgers on Wednesday.
Flaherty earned his first win of the season as he delivered an eight-strikeout performance. The 23-year-old has a 1-0 record with a 2.93 ERA and 18 strikeouts through 15.1 innings this season. Flaherty will get his next start Tuesday at Milwaukee.
Flaherty allowed six hits and two walks and struck out six over five scoreless innings Friday against the Padres. He didn't factor into the decision.
Flaherty dealt with runners on base throughout his day, although he managed to escape without surrendering a run. He left the contest in line for the victory, but his offense and bullpen would ultimately let him down. Flaherty is still searching for his first win of the 2019 campaign despite putting together two decent starts (four runs allowed over 9.1 frames).
Flaherty will not start Thursday as the game has been postponed due to inclement weather, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.
Both teams had a scheduled off day Friday, so Thursday's series opener will simply be pushed back by 24 hours. While nothing is confirmed, the Cardinals figure to push their rotation back by a day, leaving Flaherty to take the ball for Friday's series opener. In his only start so far this season, the 23-year-old allowed four runs on seven hits while striking out four in 4.1 innings against the Brewers.
Flaherty didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 9-5 win over the Brewers, allowing four runs on seven hits and a walk over 4.1 innings while striking out four.
He needed 89 pitches (52 strikes) to record 13 outs, and Flaherty gave up some loud contact when he was over the plate, with Ryan Braun's three-run shot in the third inning being the big blow. The right-hander will try to shake this one off and post a better result at home against the Padres on April 4.
