Eickhoff didn't factor into the decision Friday against the Nationals, allowing one run on three hits and three walks while striking out seven across five innings.
Eickhoff was on track to record his second consecutive quality start but was removed prior to the sixth inning at just 87 pitches -- likely a precaution given his injury history. The right-hander has been sharp in four appearances (three starts) since earning a promotion in mid-April, compiling a 2.05 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 27:8 K:BB across 22 innings. Eickhoff will look to keep things rolling in his next start, which will come on the road against the Cardinals.
Eickhoff (1-1) threw seven shutout innings, allowing only two hits with six strikeouts and a walk in a victory against the Marlins on Friday.
This was only Eickhoff's second start of the year, but he also has a four-inning scoreless relief appearance to his name. Eickhoff struggled in his other start, giving up four runs and four walks. On Friday, he threw 57 of 88 pitches for strikes, including 15 called strikes. Eickhoff is 1-1 with a 2.12 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 20 strikeouts in 17 innings this season. His next start is scheduled to be Friday against the Nationals.
Eickhoff (0-1) allowed four earned runs on seven hits and four walks while striking out eight across six innings to take the loss Sunday against the Rockies.
Eickhoff danced in and out of trouble in his first start of the season, but handled Coors fairly well by allowing only two extra-base hits and no home runs. He entered the sixth inning having allowed only one earned run but ultimately let the first four runners he faced reach base, leading to a three-run inning. He'll be in a much better environment to succeed in his next start, which comes at home against Miami.
Though it was Nick Pivetta who came away with the victory in Tuesday's 14-3 win over the Mets, Eickhoff was the far more impressive of the two pitchers while working his long relief. In what marked his 2019 debut for the Phillies after he opened the season in the minors, Eickhoff struck out six and gave up three hits and no walks over four scoreless frames to notch the save. Pivetta, meanwhile, failed to record a quality start for the fourth time in as many turns and recorded more walks than strikeouts in what was somehow his best outing of the season, prompting the Phillies to go in another direction at the back end of the rotation. After the lengthy relief appearance, Eickhoff should be reasonably stretched out heading into his start this weekend, though he could struggle to find success while pitching at Coors Field.
Eickhoff tossed four scoreless innings of relief Tuesday, allowing three hits and striking out six, to record his first career save in a 14-3 rout of the Mets.
The right-hander was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley earlier in the day and immediately thrust into action, albeit in a mop-up role. Eickhoff threw 59 pitches (38 strikes), and despite the strong outing he could immediately be optioned back down for a fresh bullpen arm as he won't be available to pitch again for a few days.
