Alzolay allowed four runs across five innings and did not factor into the decision Sunday against the Nationals. He gave up seven hits and four walks while striking out four.
Alzolay managed to avoid his 12th loss of the season but continued a run of mediocre starts, as he hasn't earned a win since June 2. Over his last nine outings, he has a 1.51 WHIP and has allowed either three or four earned runs eight times. The 26-year-old isn't getting shelled but hasn't dominated hitters in a while, either. Alzolay will carry a 4.85 ERA into his next scheduled start Saturday against the crosstown White Sox.
Alzolay (4-11) allowed four runs across five innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Reds. He gave up seven hits and no walks while striking out four.
For the second straight start, Alzolay was done in by home runs. He allowed three runs on two long balls his last time out and followed that up by allowing three solo bombs Tuesday. Alzolay has now given up 23 home runs in 93.1 innings this season after allowing just a single homer in 2020, albeit in only 21.1 innings. The 26-year-old has pitched decently for the Cubs at times, but he's going to struggle to find consistent success if he can't keep the ball in the yard. Alzolay will look to get back on track in his next scheduled start Sunday against the Nationals.
Alzolay (4-10) allowed three runs across six innings and took the loss Thursday against the Cardinals. He gave up four hits and three walks while striking out eight.
Alzolay pitched pretty well, as he set a season high in strikeouts, but the Cubs' offense didn't provide much support in the 3-2 defeat. The righty was done in by two home runs, including a two-run bomb by Nolan Arenado, which accounted for all three runs against him. Alzolay now has a 4.58 ERA this season and is scheduled to take the mound again Tuesday against the Reds.
Alzolay allowed two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out two in five innings versus Arizona on Saturday. He did not factor in the decision.
Alzolay was able to put an end to his five-start losing streak, but the Cubs' lack of offense early on didn't make it easy. The right-hander got off the hook when the Cubs pulled ahead in the top of the ninth. The 26-year-old has a 4.59 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 83:24 K:BB through 82.1 innings this season. He lines up for another road start in St. Louis next week.
Alzolay (4-9) allowed four runs on five hits and a walk while striking out five in five innings as he took the loss versus Philadelphia on Thursday.
The right-hander didn't get a ton of help from the Cubs, who were limited to five singles and three walks in the contest. Alzolay gave up two of the three home runs Brad Miller hit in the game -- which is the fourth straight time he's allowed multiple homers in a start. Alzolay has a 4.66 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 81:22 K:BB through 77.1 innings overall.
Alzolay (4-8) took the loss Saturday as the Cubs fell 3-2 to the Reds, allowing three runs on five hits and a walk over seven innings. He struck out six.
The young right-hander put together one of his best outings of the season, completing seven innings for only the second time while delivering his fourth quality start, but a lack of run support led him to his fourth straight loss. Alzolay will carry a 4.48 ERA and 76:21 K:BB through 72.1 innings into his next trip to the mound.
Alzolay (4-7) allowed six runs (four earned) on five hits and three walks while striking out three across three innings, taking the loss to the Dodgers on Sunday.
Alzolay surrendered a six-run second inning Sunday. He lost control of his command and beaned the first batter, then followed with two walks. With the bases loaded, he gave up a grand slam to Zach McKinstry. After Mookie Betts reached on an error, Alzolay surrendered another long ball to Cody Bellinger. This was one of his worst performances this season, and he was pulled after finishing the third frame. The 26-year-old has a 4.55 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP with 70 strikeouts in 65.1 innings.
Alzolay (4-6) allowed three runs on three hits and a walk over 4.2 innings Monday, striking out five and taking a loss against Cleveland.

Alzolay (finger) threw a bullpen Tuesday and may be ready for activation after one more session, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Pitching coach Tommy Hottovy said he wants to see how Alzolay's recovering finger blister reacts under "game-mode" conditions. While Alzolay is eligible for activation from the injured list Friday, Zach Davies is scheduled to start that day and Jake Arrieta the next, so Sunday seems to be a likely target for his return.
Alzolay (finger) was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.
The 26-year-old played catch Tuesday after leaving Monday's start with a blister on his right middle finger, and he'll require a stint on the injured list before making another start. Kohl Stewart was recalled in a corresponding move and is the likely candidate to fill Alzolay's spot in the rotation.
Alzolay (finger) played catch Tuesday, but his availability for his next turn through the rotation remains up in the air, Tony Andracki of Marquee Sports Network reports.
The 26-year-old is officially considered day-to-day, though it's encouraging that he was able to play catch so quickly after exiting Monday's start with a blister on his right middle finger. Alzolay tentatively lines up to start Saturday versus St. Louis, though he should be considered questionable to pitch until the team updates his status.
Alzolay left his start Monday against San Diego with a blister on his right middle finger, Gordon Wittenmyer of NBC Sports Chicago reports. He covered three innings before departing and gave up four runs on five hits and five walks while striking out four.

Alzolay left Monday's game against the Padres due to an apparent injury, Russell Dorsey of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The only run against the right-hander was a Ha-Seong Kim RBI single in the fourth inning. Alzolay continues to be effective at limiting baserunners -- he owns a 0.91 WHIP on the season. The 26-year-old has added a 3.62 ERA and 58:11 K:BB across 54.2 innings in 10 starts. Alzolay lines up for a road rematch with San Diego next week.
Alzolay (3-4) allowed five hits and three walks while striking out six in 5.2 scoreless innings to earn the win against the Reds on Friday.
The Cubs were only able to put one run on the board with a strong wind blowing in at Wrigley Field, but that was one more than Alzolay and the bullpen gave up to the Reds. The right-hander has posted a 3.81 ERA and 0.93 WHIP in 49.2 innings across nine starts to begin the season. He tentatively lines up to make his next start at home against the Padres on Wednesday.
Alzolay (2-4) allowed two earned runs across seven innings but took the loss Saturday against the Cardinals. He gave up five hits and no walks while striking out six.
Alzolay pitched very well, but the Chicago offense mustered just five hits in a 2-1 loss. The righty has been incredibly consistent lately, going at least five innings and allowing three runs or fewer in five straight starts. The seven innings pitched Saturday were actually a new season high for Alzolay, and he lowered his ERA to 4.30 in the process. He'll look for a little better luck in the win column his next time out Friday against the Reds.
Alzolay (2-3) allowed three runs on five hits across five innings to record the win Monday against the Nationals. He struck out three and did not issue a walk.
Alzolay wasn't particularly sharp, allowing home runs to Trea Turner and former teammate Kyle Schwarber, but he was still able to outduel Jon Lester. It was Lester's offseason departure that created one of several openings in the Chicago rotation, and the 26-year-old Alzolay has helped fill the void. He now has a 4.62 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 39 strikeouts across seven starts (37 innings). Alzolay will look to build on the win his next time out Saturday against St. Louis.
Alzolay (1-3) took the loss Tuesday at Cleveland after allowing three runs on five hits with six strikeouts and zero walks over six innings.
The 26-year-old pitched well but was hurt by the long ball, as all three runs came via homers from Jose Ramirez and Cesar Hernandez. Alzolay has a 4.50 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 36:7 K:BB through 32 innings this season.
