RHP Taylor Widener took a no-decision on Friday when he surrendered two runs on five hits with three walks and four strikeouts over five innings as the D-Backs lost to the Phillies in extra-innings by a score of 7-6.
Widener pitched well enough to give the D-Backs a chance to win the ball game as he only allowed two runs over his five innings. Bryce Harper swatted a two-run homer off him in the third inning but that was it. He did issue three free passes but minimized the damage overall. He owns a 4.28 ERA and 1.39 WHIP with 64 strikeouts over 61 innings on the year. He's got a date with the Padres at home in his next start.
RHP Taylor Widener earned the win on Sunday when he allowed just one run on one hit with five walks and five strikeouts over five innings as the D-Backs beat the Rockies 8-4.
Widener did a fine job limiting the damage on Sunday despite surrendering five free passes. He hit Connor Joe with a pitch in the first inning and he came around to score via a Ryan McMahon double but that was the only run allowed. Widener only fired off 78 pitches but he was done after five innings, which was good enough to give him the win. He'll carry a 4.34 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, and 60:29 K/BB ratio over 56 innings (12 starts) into his next turn against the Phillies.
RHP Taylor Widener took a no-decision on Tuesday when he surrendered one run on two hits with three walks and five strikeouts across five innings in the D-Backs' 3-2 win over the Phillies.
Widener gave the D-Backs a fighting chance on Tuesday, only allowing one run courtesy of a Bryce Harper solo shot in the third inning, over his five innings of work. He issued three free passes but he also punched out five. He's surrendered just three runs over his last two starts (10 innings). He now owns a 4.59 ERA, 1.39 WHIP, and 55:24 K/BB ratio over 51 innings (11 starts). He's got a date with the Rockies on the road in his next turn.
RHP Taylor Widener allowed two runs on four hits with two walks and seven strikeouts across five innings in the D-Backs' 6-2 loss to the Padres on Saturday.
This was a major bounce back from Widener who had allowed a whopping 15 earned runs over his previous three starts. He served up a pair of solo home runs to Manny Machado and Eric Hosmer, respectively, which led to the two earned runs tallied against him. The decent outing lowered his ERA to 4.89 to go along with a 1.43 WHIP and 50 strikeouts over 46 innings (10 starts). He'll face these same Padres at home in his next turn but he shouldn't be streamed in that one.
RHP Taylor Widener took a no-decision on Monday when he allowed five runs on five hits with three walks and seven strikeouts over 4 1/3 innings in the D-Backs' 11-8 loss to the Giants.
Widener served up a two-run dinger to Mike Yastrzemski in the top of the third inning before loading the bases in the top of the fifth and getting replaced by J.B. Bukauskas. All three runners came around to score so Widener was tagged with five earned runs. He now owns a 5.05 ERA, 1.46 WHIP, and 43:19 K/BB ratio over 41 innings (nine starts). He gets the Padres on the road in his next turn and isn't a recommended fantasy play in that one.
