Leiter allowed five runs on eight hits and three walks over 4.1 innings Wednesday but was able to escape with a no-decision in a 7-5 win over the Nationals. He struck out five.
He was on the hook for a loss after getting chased from the game in a three-run fifth inning, but the Phillies responded with three runs of their own in the bottom half of the frame to re-take the lead. Leiter finishes the year with a 4.96 ERA in the majors, and he'll head into next spring looking to prove he deserves a regular spot in the Phillies rotation rather than returning to a swing man role.
Leiter was charged with three runs (one earned) on five hits over six innings in a no-decision against the Dodgers on Thursday. He struck out three, issued one walk and hit a batter.
A solo homer off the bat of Curtis Granderson was the only real blemish against Leiter, who left the game in line for the win before the bullpen coughed up the lead. This was his third career quality start. He's missed bats at a decent clip since stepping into the rotation, but Leiter has had some issues with the long ball and he has a tough matchup (vs WAS) in his lone start of the season's final week.
Leiter (3-6) allowed four runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out nine across six innings to take the loss Friday against the Athletics.
Leiter gave up a two-run homer in each of the first two innings while receiving no offensive support, as he dropped his sixth decision of the year. He's allowed 16 earned runs over his last three starts, which raised his ERA over a full run, and fantasy managers are taking on risk if using him while he tries to work through his current slump. He'll make his next start Thursday against the Dodgers.
Leiter (3-5) allowed four runs on six hits and one walk while striking out eight across six innings to earn the victory Saturday against the Nationals.
Leiter had a 5-1 lead going into the bottom of the fourth inning before letting the Nationals pull within a single run before the bullpen took over to protect the victory. His ERA his gone up almost a full run over his last three starts, and with a 4.84 ERA, he's become a risky fantasy option. He'll make his next start Friday against the Athletics.
Leiter (2-5) took the loss after allowing nine runs - eight earned - on nine hits while striking out two batters over 3.1 innings Monday against the Mets.
It was a rare blowup from Leiter, who hadn't allowed more than four runs in any of his six starts prior to Monday's shellacking. The poor outing raised his ERA from 3.88 to 4.74, but he still owns a serviceable 1.30 WHIP and 7.8 K/9. He'll look to bounce back in his next scheduled start, which is projected for Saturday against a tough Nationals team.
