SP,RP - SEA
Nick Margevicius secured his second win of the year on Wednesday when he allowed three hits while striking out four and walking three over six scoreless innings in the Mariners 3-2 over the Astros.
Margevicius twirled what was easily his best start of the season, shutting down the Astros over six frames while firing 94 pitches, 55 of which were strikes. He put a lot of balls in play and the M's defense put in the work behind him. The 24-year old finishes the regular season with a 4.57 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, and a 36:14 K/BB ratio across 41 1/3 innings (10 appearances, seven starts). He'll fight for a backend rotation spot in Spring 2021.
Nick Margevicius took a no-decision on Thursday when he surrendered three runs on five hits while walking three and striking out three across five innings in the Mariners 6-4 loss to the Giants.
Margevicius fared much better in this game than his previous start against the Giants when we was lit up for seven runs. He coughed up a solo home run to Darin Ruf in the second inning but was able to minimize the damage until the sixth when he gave up two more runs. With Seattle holding a 4-3 lead, the left-hander was in line for the win until Kendall Graveman yielded three runs in the seventh inning and the Mariners ultimately lost. The 24-year old will carry a 5.35 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, and a 32:11 K/BB ratio across 35 1/3 innings (nine appearances, six starts) into his next turn against the Astros.
Nick Margevicius took his third loss of the season on Wednesday when he was lit up for seven runs on six hits with six strikeouts and three walks over 4 2/3 innings in the Mariners 10-1 loss to the Giants.
Margevicius avoided trouble through the first two innings but things started to fall apart in the bottom of the third. He gave up a three-run blast to Mike Yastrzemski and an RBI single to Evan Longoria to hand the Giants 4-0 lead. He gave up another run in the fourth inning and was then lifted with the bases loaded in the fifth, replaced by Walker Lockett who allowed two of the inherited runners to score. The poor outing elevated Margevicius' season ERA to 5.34 with a 1.25 WHIP and a 29:8 K/BB ratio across 30 1/3 innings. He's not a recommended play in his next start against the A's at home.
Nick Margevicius picked up a quality start but took the loss on Friday when he allowed two runs on seven hits with five strikeouts and two walks over six innings in the M's 3-2 loss to the Angels.
Margevicius kept the Angels off the board through five innings, working his way out of a bases-loaded jam in the bottom of the third. He ran into trouble in the bottom of the sixth when he gave up an RBI double to Albert Pujols and an RBI single to Justin Upton with two outs. In the end he took a tough luck loss and saw his record fall to 1-2. The big left-hander will take a 3.86 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and a 23:5 K/BB ratio through 25.2 innings (four starts) into his next start against the A's.
Nick Margevicius got the win on Friday when he gave up four runs on six hits while striking out seven and walking one over 5.1 innings in the Mariners 7-4 win over the Texas Rangers.
Margevicius was rolling through the first four innings, only allowing one base runner while fanning seven but started to run out of steam in fifth when he allowed a pair of doubles with a walk sandwiched in between. He then gave up a solo home run to Danny Santana in the top of sixth followed by back-to-back singles before being replaced by Joey Gerber, who allowed one of those runners to cross the plate on a sacrifice fly. He ended up being tagged with the four earned runs but he pitched much better than the box score showed. The 24-year old lefty pounded the strike zone, throwing 56 of his 82 pitches for strikes. He's been a pleasant surprise for the Mariners since he filled in for the injured Kendall Graveman in early August and certainly earned another start with this performance. He now carries a 4.12 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, and an 18:3 K/BB ratio across 19.2 innings (three starts).
