Pivetta fanned seven and walked five while tossing five scoreless frames in a winning effort against the Mets on Sunday.
He cruised to an easy win, thanks to a robust 11 runs of support (including a six-run fourth) provided by the Philly offense. The outing lowered Pivetta's ERA to 6.02 for the season, and he'll likely report to spring training in February with an opportunity to compete for a spot in the back of the rotation on the strength of his 140 strikeouts in 133 innings at the big-league level this season.
Pivetta (7-10) notched the win in Sunday's 2-0 victory over Atlanta, allowing five hits while walking one and striking out four over six shutout innings.
Pivetta's picked up consecutive victories while logging quality starts in each, making a complete 180 after allowing 13 runs in 10 innings over his previous two starts. The rookie right-hander hasn't pitched more than six innings in any of his past 14 outings, but has excellent strikeout upside given his 9.4 K/9. He's scheduled to start next Sunday's season finale against the Mets.
Pivetta (6-10) allowed two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out eight batters through six innings to record the win against the Dodgers on Monday.
After allowing 13 runs through just 10 innings in his past two outings, this was a promising bounce-back showing from Pivetta. His 9.5 K/9 and strong track record in the minors highlight his upside, and Pivetta could be utilized in favorable matchups moving forward, but he's far from a sure thing. He projects to make his next start against the Braves at SunTrust Park.
Pivetta (5-10) got slammed for six runs on 10 hits over five innings in Wednesday's 6-3 loss to the Mets. He struck out five without a walk.
This game was shortened to less than six full innings by rain, but Pivetta was gone before it ended anyway. The rookie right-hander is averaging more than a strikeout per inning, but he's also averaging a homer per start while walking way too many batters. Pivetta's high velocity and promising minor-league resume provide him with long-term fantasy value, but he's been far too unsteady to trust down the stretch this season.
Pivetta allowed one run on four hits and three walks across six innings in a no-decision Friday against the Marlins. He struck out six.
Pivetta got off to a shaky start in this one, loading the bases with nobody out in the first inning and allowing the opening run on his second wild pitch of the frame. He settled down to great effect thereafter and allowed just two men past first base the rest of the way. The rookie went all of August without delivering a quality start, so this outing should help get him back on track after a substandard month. Pivetta is next slated to take the ball Wednesday against the Mets.
