Trevor Bauer (10-12) took the loss in game one of Saturday's double header against the Cardinals, allowing six runs on seven hits and three walks over four innings. He struck out five.
Make it back-to-back stinkers for Bauer, who has been unpredictable since being acquired by the Reds. He coughed up two homers, and was catching too much of the plate, surrendering seven hits (four extra-base hits) in four innings. The outing raises Bauer's season ERA to 4.53, and his WHIP to 1.29. Though he's shown flashes of greatness this season, he's been disappointing on the whole. He'll look to get back in the win column next week against the Phillies.
