Kuhl (5-4) picked up the win in Friday's 3-2 victory over the Reds, allowing two runs (one earned) on six hits and three walks over six innings while striking out six.
It's the right-hander's first win in over a month, as Kuhl threw 65 of 93 pitches for strikes en route to his eighth quality start of the season. He'll take a 3.76 ERA into his next outing Wednesday at home against the Brewers.
Kuhl allowed three runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out six across 5.1 innings Friday as he took the loss to the Cubs.
Kuhl put together a decent outing, but he didn't get enough run support to pick up the win. He surrendered three runs within the first two innings but managed to keep the Pirates within striking distance until he was lifted in the sixth inning. Kuhl has come across some tough luck over his last three starts, as he's 0-2 despite allowing just six runs across 17.1 innings. His next appearance figures to come Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.
Kuhl (4-3) took a no decision Saturday after allowing two runs on four hits and two walks over six innings against the Cardinals. He recorded five strikeouts.
Kuhl has now provided a quality start in four of his last five outings, but has only a single loss to show for it. The 25-year-old has a 3.86 ERA and 1.32 WHIP with 63 strikeouts over 67.2 innings for the Pirates this season, and is next scheduled to start on the road against the Cubs next Friday.
Kuhl (4-3) allowed one run on four hits and four walks while striking out five through six innings Monday as he took the loss to the Cubs.
Kuhl surrendered just one run in Monday's outing, as he gave up a solo home run to Anthony Rizzo in the second inning. Despite allowing one run in each of his past two starts, Kuhl doesn't have a win to show for it. He sports a 3.94 ERA and 1.35 WHIP with 58 strikeouts across 61.2 innings this season.
Kuhl didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 5-4 extra-innings win over the Reds, allowing one run on five hits and a walk over six innings while striking out six.
A Scooter Gennett solo homer in the sixth inning was the only real mistake Kuhl made as he delivered his fifth quality start of the season. The right-hander has shaved his ERA down to 4.20 in the process, and he'll look to keep rolling in his next outing Monday at home against the Cubs.
