Lucchesi allowed two runs on four hits with no walks across six innings Sunday in a no-decision against the Diamondbacks. He struck out eight.
Lucchesi threw 70 percent of his pitches for strikes as he stifled the visitors for most of the afternoon. He allowed solo home runs in the fourth and sixth innings to account for all the major damage done against him, but unfortunately that was enough to keep him from earning his ninth win. Lucchesi was a pleasant surprise this season for the Padres, pacing the staff with a 4.08 ERA and a 10.0 K/9.
Lucchesi (8-9) allowed seven earned runs on seven hits while walking two and striking out six across 3.2 innings to take the loss Sunday against the Dodgers.
Lucchesi struck out the side in the first inning but allowed three home runs across the next three innings prior to being pulled. He had pitched well entering the game, allowing three of fewer earned runs in five consecutive starts. Despite the disappointing setback in Sunday's effort, Lucchesi has experienced surprising success in his rookie campaign, posting a 4.14 ERA and 1.32 WHIP across 124 innings.
Lucchesi will start Sunday's game against the Dodgers.
Manager Andy Green decided to alter the Padres' pitching schedule this weekend, bumping Lucchesi ahead of Bryan Mitchell in the order to give the rookie an opportunity to pitch against a tough Dodgers squad that is in the midst of a pennant race. After pitching Sunday on four days' rest, Lucchesi will likely take the hill for the final time in 2018 next weekend at home against Arizona.
Lucchesi allowed three runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out eight over five innings in Tuesday's loss to the Giants. He did not factor into the decision.
Lucchesi fired first-pitch strikes to 16 of 23 batters and induced 21 swinging strikes, but he wasn't especially efficient as he needed 94 pitches (64 strikes) to get through five frames. The lefty has turned in five straight outings allowing three or fewer runs, giving him a 3.74 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 131:41 K:BB over 120.1 innings. He'll next face the Dodgers on Sunday.
Lucchesi (8-8) picked up the win against the Mariners on Wednesday, giving up three earned runs on six hits over five innings, striking out three and walking two as the Padres eventually prevailed 5-4.
The left-hander didn't work deep into the game but he still managed to bag his eighth win after his teammates staked him to a three-run lead. The left-hander now has a 3.67 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP through 115.1 innings this season -- numbers he'll take into his next start against the Giants on Tuesday.
