RHP Kevin Gausman took the loss on Thursday when he allowed four runs on eight hits with one walk and seven strikeouts over five innings in the Giants' 7-4 loss to the Padres.
Gausman didn't pitch poorly on Thursday, striking out seven and only walking one, but the Padres are a tough out. He served up a solo homer to Fernando Tatis Jr. as well as a pair of RBI to Tommy Pham. The Giants couldn't get enough going on offense to pick Gausman up so he was saddled with his sixth loss of the season. He now owns a 2.78 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, and 208:49 K/BB ratio over 175 innings (30 starts). He'll take on these same Padres on the road in his next start.
Kevin Gausman allowed three runs on eight hits and no walks while striking out nine across six innings during Saturday's 15-4 win over the Cubs.
Gausman (14-5) was in command all game, throwing a strike on 75% of his pitches and getting ahead of 17 of the 25 batters he faced Saturday. The 30-year-old has posted a 2.65 ERA in 2021, which currently ranks fifth in the MLB. Gausman is lined up to face San Diego at home in next week's start.
RHP Kevin Gausman picked up his 13th win of the season on Monday when he allowed three runs on five hits with one walk and nine strikeouts over seven innings as the Giants took down the Rockies 10-5.
Gausman had some tough luck on Monday despite striking out nine and picking up the win. He scattered just five hits over his seven innings but the Rockies were able to get three runs out of that limited production. He served up solo home runs to Ryan McMahon and Garrett Hampson and an RBI triple to Charlie Blackmon. He still earned the quality start and the win so that should be enough for fantasy managers. The 30-year-old hurler now owns a 2.58 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, and 192:48 K/BB ratio over 164 innings (28 starts). He'll get the Cubs on the road in his next turn, which is a smash spot with the fantasy playoffs underway.

He'll carry a super 2.52 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, and 183:47 K/BB ratio over 157 innings (27 starts) into his next turn against the Rockies at home.

Gausman was placed on the COVID-19 injured list earlier this week after experiencing some vaccine side effects but he looks no worse for the wear on Friday. He served up a solo home run to Adam Duvall and an RBI single to Austin Riley but that would be the only damage inflicted against him. He only struck out two batters but still earned the quality start. The hard-throwing right-hander now owns a sparkling 2.49 ERA and 1.01 WHIP with 176 strikeouts over 152 innings on the year. He'll get the Brewers at home in his next turn.
