Marco Gonzales took the loss Saturday against the Rangers, allowing five runs on nine hits across five innings to go along with two strikeouts.
It was looking like Gonzales was headed for another quality start after allowing just one hit across three shutout innings. Texas got to him for four runs though in the fourth inning on a mixture of poor pitching with lackluster defense behind him. The struggles have been real for Gonzales as of late, posting a 6.69 ERA across his last six starts.
Marco Gonzales earned the win Sunday against the Angels, allowing three runs on eight hits across six innings to go along with seven strikeouts and one walk.
Gonzales was provided with plenty of early run support as the Mariners took a 5-0 lead into the fourth inning. After three scoreless frames, David Fletcher put the Angels on the board with a two-run double in the fourth inning before later driving in a run on a groundout in the sixth inning. Gonzales set a season-high with seven strikeouts as he now leads the Mariners pitching rotation with 13 quality starts.
Marco Gonzales took the loss Monday against the Yankees, allowing six runs on nine hits across six innings to go along with five strikeouts and three walks.
Gonzales allowed a single, double and home run just seven pitches into the game for three early runs. He wound up allowing another two home runs, but managed to throw six innings with the Mariners bullpen depleted. Gonzales has now allowed at least five runs in three of his last four starts as his spot in the Mariners starting rotation may be in jeopardy with the addition of Luis Castillo.
Marco Gonzales earned the win Wednesday against the Rangers, allowing two runs on four hits across seven innings to go along with five strikeouts and one walk.
Gonzales has been a workhorse in the Mariners rotation, tossing at least six innings in seven of his last eight starts. After facing the minimum through four innings on Wednesday, Texas scored one run in each of the next two frames but Gonzales was still able to limit the damage.
Marco Gonzales took the loss Friday against the Astros, allowing five runs on nine hits across 5.2 innings to go along with two strikeouts and one walk.
It started out as bad it could get for Gonzales as Jose Altuve blasted a solo home run off him to open the game. He was able to settle in a bit before Yordan Alvarez blasted a home run to open the fourth inning. Houston got to Gonzales for another three runs in the next pair of innings when he was removed from the game. Gonzales remains an innings eater type of pitcher in the Mariners rotation, but his fantasy upside is low.
