Blackburn Battles Through Walks for Win

Paul Blackburn earned the win Wednesday, allowing three earned runs on six hits and five walks while striking out seven over 5.2 innings as the Athletics topped the Cardinals 6-3.

Fantasy Impact

Despite the win, Blackburn's control issues were apparent, as he issued five free passes, the most he's allowed this season. However, his ability to rack up seven strikeouts and limit the damage to just three runs helped him secure his second win. Looking ahead, fantasy managers should be slightly concerned about the high walk rate in this outing, but Blackburn's overall strong season metrics, including a pristine ERA and solid WHIP, suggest he can be a valuable asset if he maintains control. His strikeout numbers aren't elite, but his efficiency and ability to manage games should keep him relevant in most fantasy formats.
