Taijuan Walker stumbles in loss to Brewers on Wednesday

Taijuan Walker allowed four runs on six hits and three walks over six innings on Wednesday against the Brewers. He struck out three and took the loss, falling to 12-5.
Walker pitched far better than his line, holding the Brewers scoreless through four innings and allowing just one run through five. But he ran into trouble in the sixth, and the Mets relief staff allowed his inherited runners to score. Walker has been inconsistent for much of the year, though he has a respectable 3.53 ERA and 1.19 WHIP. He'll likely have one start left against Miami, though he could wind up pitching the final game of the season against the Braves depending on how the standings shake out. Keep him rostered in any league where pitching is scarce.
