SP - SEA
Chris Flexen took the loss in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Angels, allowing five runs on six hits across six innings to go along with five strikeouts and two walks.
Flexen allowed a pair of runs in the third inning off RBI base hits by Taylor Ward and Max Stassi, followed by a solo home run hit by Mickey Moniak to open the fourth inning. Mariners manager Scott Servais seemingly tried to squeak out one more inning out of Flexen with Seattle playing a doubleheader when David Fletcher hit a two-run home run in the sixth inning. The long ball would not have been a home run in any other ball park interesting enough. Flexen remains a very low-upside pitcher from a fantasy perspective.
Chris Flexen took the no-decision Saturday against the Astros, allowing two runs on three hits across 5.1 innings to go along with one strikeout and four walks.
Flexen held Houston without a hit through four innings, but his pitch count was high due to his season-high four walks. Aledmys Diaz ended the no-hit bid and shutout with a solo home run to open the bottom half of the fifth inning. It was not the most efficient outing from Flexen, but he continues to get the job done having posted a 1.95 ERA during the month of July.
Chris Flexen earned the win Monday against the Rangers, allowing two runs on four hits across six innings to go along with five strikeouts and two walks.
After a couple of scoreless innings, Flexen allowed his first run of the game on a wild pitch with the bases loaded. He later allowed a solo home run to open the sixth inning hit by Adolis Garcia, but otherwise kept the Texas offense in check all night.
Chris Flexen took the no-decision Sunday against the Rangers, allowing one run on four hits across 3.2 innings to go along with three strikeouts and one walk.
With George Kirby being in Triple-A, the Mariners sent Flexen out on three days rest so he was expected to be on a pitch count. Outside of a Marcus Semien home run, Flexen did what he could on short rest for the Mariners as he carries a 3.79 ERA into the All-Star break.
Chris Flexen earned the win in Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Nationals, allowing one run on six hits across six innings to go along with one strikeout and two walks.
After tossing four shutout innings, Flexen loaded the bases with nobody out in the fifth inning but was able to escape the jam allowing just one run. He has allowed three runs or fewer in nine straight starts, posting a 2.91 ERA in that span.
