SP - SEA
Marco Gonzales was handed a no-decision on Sunday when he allowed two runs on six hits with five strikeouts and one walk across five innings in the Mariners 6-2 loss to the A's.
Gonzales wasn't his usual efficient self as it took him 97 pitches--64 strikes--to get through five innings of work. The southpaw still put together an excellent season for the rebuilding Mariners going 7-2 with a 3.10 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, and a 64:7 K/BB ratio across 69 2/3 innings (11 starts). He'll be worth of a mid round pick in fantasy drafts next season as he looks to take another step forward.
Marco Gonzales was superb on Monday, picking up his seventh win of the year when he allowed no runs on seven hits with six strikeouts and one walk in the Mariners 6-1 win over the Astros.
Gonzales was locked in a pitcher's duel with Lance McCullers through the first six innings as neither team could get anything going offensively. McCullers cracked first and Gonzales kept on trucking as he secured his seventh win of the season. The southpaw was his usual efficient self, needing 98 pitches--68 strikes--to get through eight innings. He now owns a 3.06 ERA, 0.91 WHIP, and a 59:6 K/BB ratio across 64 2/3 innings (10 starts). The 28-year old should get one final start against the A's this weekend to cap off his excellent season.
Marco Gonzales picked up his sixth win of the season on Monday when he allowed five runs on six hits with seven strikeouts and one walk over six innings in Game 1 of Monday's doubleheader against the A's.
This was an uncharacteristic start for the Mariners ace as he surrendered a season-high five runs and two homers. He hung in there, though, and still managed to strike out seven and pitched deep enough for the M's to retake the lead and get him the win. He'll carry a 3.49 ERA, 0.90 WHIP, and a 53:5 K/BB ratio across 56 2/3 innings (nine starts) into his next outing, a tough test against the Padres at home.
Marco Gonzales put up another excellent performance on Monday when he gave up two runs on four hits with seven strikeouts and no walks over seven innings as the M's completed a four-game sweep of the Rangers 8-4.
Gonzales was in control from the outset, limiting the Rangers to just four hits through his seven strong innings. He picked up his third-straight win and has notched a quality start in three of four. He now owns a 3.02 ERA, 0.87 WHIP, and a 46:4 K/BB ratio. He has a great matchup in his next turn when the Mariners visit the D-backs this weekend.
Marco Gonzales will start Monday's game against the Angels.
