MacKenzie Gore stumbles slightly in Nationals' loss

MacKenzie Gore delivered a mixed performance, allowing two earned runs on three hits and three walks while striking out three over 6 1/3 innings in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Phillies.

Fantasy Impact:

Despite a relatively solid ERA of 3.30 and a commendable FIP of 3.28 on the season, Gore's WHIP has crept up to 1.38, reflecting some ongoing issues with baserunner management. His K/9 rate remains strong at 10.5, suggesting he still has the ability to dominate hitters, but his control was less sharp in this outing. Fantasy managers should note his elevated BABIP of .361, indicating some bad luck has played a part in his results. While not disastrous, this start underscores some of the volatility in relying on Gore as a consistent fantasy starter.
