Buehler (7-5) earned the victory over the Cardinals on Friday after tossing eight shutout innings. He allowed two hits and two walks while striking out nine.
In a game with postseason implications, Buehler dominated the Cardinals and didn't allow a baserunner until the fifth inning. The nine strikeouts tied a season-high, and the young righty keeps collecting punchouts on the season (131 K's over 118.2 innings). He'll carry an impressive 2.88 ERA into his next start scheduled for Wednesday against the Rockies.
Buehler (6-5) allowed four earned runs on six hits and one walk while striking out seven across six innings to take the loss Saturday against the Rockies.
Buehler was set back by two home runs that accounted for three of the four earned runs he surrendered. While he turned in a disappointing start as a result, he has allowed only 18 earned runs across his last 58.1 innings to go along with 68 strikeouts. Given his consistent results this season, Saturday's start at Coors Field should be considered an isolated poor outing.
Buehler (foot) said he expects to make his next start on schedule, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Buehler said he suffered a muscle cramp in his foot during his start against the Diamondbacks on Sunday. X-rays came back negative and on Monday he told Alanna Rizzo of SportsNetLA that his foot is 100 percent fine. Buehler lines up to face the Rockies at Coors Field on Saturday.
Buehler will have X-rays on his left foot following Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Buehler tossed a solid outing, allowing one run on two hits and three walks while fanning nine across 6.1 innings, although he didn't factor into the decision. It's unclear as to when Buehler suffered the injury, but he left the clubhouse after the game to have X-rays taken, per Gurnick. More information on Buehler's availability moving forward should emerge when the results of the scan come back.
Buehler gave up three hits and two walks while striking out nine over seven scoreless innings in a no-decision against the Cardinals on Wednesday.
The crowd at Dodger Stadium witnessed a pitchers' duel between two of the most exciting young starters in the game, with Buehler and opposing starter Jack Flaherty both turning in gems. Buehler got 22 called strikes and 11 swinging strikes on 104 pitches and left the game in line for his seventh win, but Scott Alexander blew the lead in the eighth. With a total of four earned runs allowed in his last five starts (32.1 innings), Buehler has brought his ERA back below 3.00, and he has now surpassed 100 strikeouts. He gets the Rangers in Texas next week.
