Nix (2-5) allowed four runs on five hits and three walks while striking out none across four innings to take the loss Saturday against the Diamondbacks.
The big blow against Nix came in the fourth inning, when he allowed a two-run homer to Ildemaro Vargas. He pitched fairly well otherwise, generating eight groundball outs and allowing only one other extra-base hit. However, the 22-year-old failed to show that he could pitch effectively at the major-league level this season, posting a 7.02 ERA and 1.54 WHIP across 42.1 innings.
Nix (2-4) allowed six earned runs on six hits and no walks while striking out two across 2.1 innings to take the loss Saturday against the Dodgers.
Nix's outing immediately got off to a shaky start, as he was taken deep for a leadoff homer by Joc Pederson. Things didn't get much better for him as the game went on, as he gave up three doubles and a three-run homer in the third inning prior to getting yanked. He now has a 6.81 ERA and 1.49 WHIP across 38.1 innings at the major-league level.
Nix got rocked for 11 earned runs over 10 innings in his last two starts prior to this contest, but he was able to right the ship with a quality start in this one. He's 2-3 with a 5.75 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP through 36 innings this season.
Nix (1-2) got the loss Wednesday, allowing three runs on five hits and a walk while striking out two over five innings against the Rockies.
It was a much better outing than his last time out, when he got tagged for five runs against Arizona and didn't make it out of the first inning, but it was still the 22-year-old's second loss in as many tries. He sports an unsightly 6.17 ERA in 11.2 major-league innings, but the numbers were much better this year in the minors to the tune of a 1.84 ERA in 10 starts across both Double-A and Triple-A. He'll look to get back on track Tuesday against Seattle.
Nix (1-1) failed to escape the first inning Thursday, serving up five runs on five hits with two walks and a strikeout while taking the loss against the Diamondbacks.
Nix was hit hard right from the get-go, allowing the Diamondbacks to bat around in the first inning before exiting with the bases loaded. This outing was a stark contrast from the rookie's first start, when he fired six scoreless frames against the Phillies. The 22-year-old earned his recent promotion after posting a 1.86 ERA and 4.9 K/BB ratio over 58.2 innings across two levels in the minors. Manager Andy Green commented on the rough outing, stating that he can "get an indication of how these guys are wired and how they respond to adversity," which is good sign that the rookie will get a shot to redeem himself. Nix will get a chance to do just that in a tough matchup at Coors Field against the Rockies next Wednesday.
