Gomber (6-2) allowed five runs on seven hits in 3.2 innings Tuesday in a loss to the Brewers, recording six strikeouts and no walks.
Gomber allowed a couple solo home runs in the first inning and later got hit around in the fourth before getting the hook with two runners on and the Cardinals down 3-0. Gomber hasn't made it out of the fourth inning in two of his last three starts, and now sports a 4.07 ERA and 1.48 WHIP to go along with a 65:31 K:BB in 73 innings this season. The lefty is not slated to start another game but it's possible he could see some action out of the bullpen this weekend against the Cubs in Chicago.
Gomber (6-1) allowed one run on six hits and three walks across five innings to earn the win Tuesday against the Braves. He struck out five.
Gomber threw first-pitch strikes to 17 of 25 batters and induced six groundball outs to help his cause. He allowed a leadoff home run to Ronald Acuna in the third inning and loaded the bases shortly after, but he was able to escape the jam with no further damage. Gomber continues to put runners on base at a high rate and has now allowed at least nine to reach in four consecutive outings, bringing his WHIP to 1.46. He's allowed three earned runs or fewer in seven of his last eight starts, but he'll need to rein it in for that trend to continue. Gomber will look to do just that next week against the Brewers.
Gomber (5-1) allowed seven earned runs on nine hits and a walk while striking out three across three innings to take the loss Thursday against the Dodgers.
Gomber struggled from the beginning, allowing four of the first five batters he faced to reach base, which resulted in three earned runs through just one frame. That set the tone for the rest of his outing, and he surrendered more than three earned runs in a start for the first time in six outings. The rookie will look to bounce back in his next start, likely to come Tuesday at Atlanta.
Gomber (4-0) pitched six innings and earned the win Sunday, yielding two runs (one earned) on five hits and a walk in the 12-3 win over Colorado. He struck out six batters.
Gomber was handed a 6-0 lead before he threw his first pitch and he did a solid job of protecting it. The rookie left-hander now owns a terrific 2.79 ERA across 48.1 innings on the year. Gomber has also earned a win in three of his last four starts and he continues to prove why he should stay in the rotation down the stretch. Next time he takes the mound will be at home against the Reds on Saturday.
Gomber (3-0) got the win Wednesday, firing six shutout innings with six strikeouts while allowing three hits and four walks against the Nationals.
Gomber was in command in this one, and though he allowed a runner to reach scoring position in each of his final three innings, he was able to stifle the threat without any damage each time. The rookie has now tossed 11 straight scoreless innings with nine strikeouts over the past two outings, lowering his ERA to an impressive 2.89 through 37.1 innings. Given his recent performances and the fact that the Cardinals are electing to slot Carlos Martinez (shoulder) into the bullpen upon his return, Gomber figures to stick around in the rotation. Next up is a road start Monday against the Dodgers.
