Alex McRae allowed two runs on three hits and two walks and one strikeout across five innings during a no-decision against the Cardinals on Friday.
It wasn't enough for a win, but this may have been McRae's strongest outing of 2019. He's susceptible to the long ball, having allowed seven homers in 20.1 innings, and he allowed one Friday night. He is 0-3 with a 8.41 ERA, 1.77 WHIP, and 16 strikeouts in 20.1 innings this season.
Alex McRae (0-3) took the brutal loss Monday against the Reds, allowing seven runs (five earned) on six hits and two walks while striking out none through 1.1 innings.
McRae filled in for Jordan Lyles, who had been traded earlier Monday afternoon. He was largely responsible for the Reds' 10-run second inning. McRae has struggled to a 9.98 ERA through 15.1 innings this season. If he sticks in the rotation, he'll take on the Mets on Sunday next.
