RHP Trevor Bauer took a no-decision on Sunday when he allowed one run on three hits with seven strikeouts and one walk over six innings in the Dodgers 5-2 loss to the Padres.
It was just poor luck that Bauer didn't factor into the decision on Sunday as he looked as sharp as he has all year. He fired off 98 pitches--64 strikes--with his only mistake being a Jake Cronenworth solo home run in the bottom of the fourth inning. The 30-year-old is rocking a 2.42 ERA, 0.62 WHIP, and 36:6 K/BB ratio over 26 innings (four starts) and has now picked up three consecutive quality starts. He gets a rematch with the Padres, this time at home, in his next turn.
RHP Trevor Bauer picked up his second win of the year on Tuesday when he allowed just one hit and a pair of walks with nine strikeouts over seven innings in the Dodgers 7-0 win over the Rockies.
Bauer simply overpowered the Rockies all evening, who only had two batters reach base over seven innings. Through three starts with the Dodgers this year, Bauer has looked as advertised. He'll take his 2.70 ERA, 0.60 WHIP, and 29:5 K/BB ratio into his next turn vs. the Padres on the road.
RHP Trevor Bauer was handed a no-decision on Wednesday when he allowed two runs on three hits with 10 strikeouts and one walk over 6 2/3 innings as the Dodgers lost to the A's 4-3 in extra-innings.
Bauer was in control for most of this game, only making a few mistakes. Ramon Laureano scored on a wild pitch after stealing second and third base and reaching via a HBP. He also served up a solo home run to Matt Chapman in the bottom of the seventh inning but left the game with the Dodgers holding a 3-2 advantage. Kenley Jansen would later blow the save and LA would go on to lose in extra-innings. Bauer will look for his second win in a Dodgers uniform in his next start vs. the Rockies at home.
Trevor Bauer picked up the win on Friday after surrendering four runs on three hits with 10 strikeouts and two walks over 6 1/3 innings in the Dodgers 11-6 victory over the Rockies.
Based on the box score it may not look like Bauer had a no-hitter through six innings but he did. He scuffled in the seventh inning after Trevor Story broke up the no-hit bid with a single before Charlie Blackmon cracked a two-run shot. Bauer then walked C.J. Cron and allowed another two-run dinger to Ryan McMahon before whiffing Garrett Hampson and finally being removed from the game. He lost his quality start but picked up the win. It was a disappointing end to Bauer's Dodgers debut but he showed his immense upside through six innings of impressive work. He should have an easier time on the bump in his next start in the spacious RingCentral Coliseum vs. the A's.
Trevor Bauer was solid over his two innings of work on Monday as he surrendered just one hit while striking out two in his Cactus League debut with the Dodgers.
Bauer was making both his Cactus League and Dodgers debut on Monday. The first batter he faced, Garrett Hampson, sliced a single off of him but Bauer retired the next six batters he faced with ease. The reigning NL Cy Young winner inked a three-year, $102 million deal with the Dodgers this offseason. A repeat of his ridiculous 2020 season (1.73 ERA, 0.79 WHIP and 100:17 K/BB over 73 innings) is unlikely but he's a good bet to put up SP1 numbers this year in Los Angeles.
