The right-hander was sharp in delivering his second quality start of the season, but unfortunately Mike Fiers was busy throwing a no-hitter for Oakland. Mahle's winless record belies a solid 3.69 ERA and 41:8 K:BB through 39 innings, and he'll look for more run support in his next outing Sunday in San Francisco.
Mahle (0-4) allowed one run on four hits with seven strikeouts and no walks across five innings in a loss to the Mets on Thursday.
Unfortunately, Mahle ran into an unstoppable Noah Syndergaard, who tossed a complete-game shutout. Owners should still be pleased with this performance, though, as it was Mahle's best since April 10. The only run he allowed Thursday was on a homer against Syndergaard. As encouraging as this is, the lack of run support is nothing new, and Mahle has been unable to earn a win this year in large part because of it. He is 0-4 with a 4.09 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 33 strikeouts in 33 innings. His next scheduled start is on the road against the Athletics on Tuesday.
Mahle (0-3) took the loss Saturday, allowing five runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out two over five innings against St. Louis.
Mahle, who has not recorded a win in his five starts this season, wasn't fooling the Cardinals, as he generated just three swinging strikes. The 24-year-old was primarily victimized by Marcell Ozuna, who reached him for a three-run homer in the third inning and a two-run double in the fifth. Mahle has a 4.50 ERA and a 1.39 WHIP, and he'll look to rebound Thursday at Citi Field against the Mets.
Mahle (0-2) allowed four earned runs on seven hits and no walks while striking out nine across six innings to take the loss Sunday against the Padres.
Mahle was largely effective outside of a disastrous third inning, during which he surrendered six hits, including three that went for extra-bases. His nine strikeouts were backed up by 20 called strikes and 13 swinging strikes. Despite allowing four earned runs in consecutive starts, Mahle has an impressive 24:4 K:BB through 23 frames, giving hope that he will turn in a better start his next time out despite a tough matchup Saturday against the Cardinals.
Mahle (0-1) yielded four runs on 11 hits with three strikeouts and no walks across six innings in a loss to the Dodgers on Tuesday.
While it was nice to see him with better control -- Mahle walked four hitters in five innings during his last start -- the 11 hits he allowed were more than what he yielded in his first two outings combined. Tuesday's outing raised his batting average against to .277, which is actually still a little lower than what he allowed last season. Overall, Mahle is 0-1 with a 2.65 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 15 strikeouts in 17 innings this season. His next scheduled start is on the road against the Padres.
