Scott Feldman SP HOU 12 Days

Scott Feldman was knocked around for a season-high seven runs over 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Red Sox on Friday.

Feldman had gone at least five innings with three earned runs or fewer allowed over his last five starts, but he allowed an army of baserunners Friday by giving up 11 hits and three walks. His ERA jumped from 3.86 to 4.33 with the loss. That's his new high-water mark for the year.

Scott Feldman allowed three runs over six innings in a loss to the Braves on Tuesday.

Feldman was hurt by the long ball, as two of the three runs came on solo homers. It was still a largely positive outing for the right-hander, as he allowed just four hits and a walk in all. Despite pitching better of late, Feldman still hasn't gotten a win since May 26 and fell to 3-5 with Tuesday's result. He'll look for his first win this month when the Tigers come to town on Sunday.

Scott Feldman got the no-decision, allowing two runs over five innings as the Astros were defeated by the Nationals 6-5 on Wednesday.

Feldman outdueled Gio Gonzalez, but the Astros bullpen could not hold the lead. The right-hander allowed six hits, walked three, and struck out five. A couple of shellackings aside, Feldman has done a fine job out of the rotation in Houston. He'll take a 3.95 ERA, 1.35 WHIP, and a 38/19 K/BB ratio into his next outing against the Braves at home.

Scott Feldman got the no-decision, allowing three runs (two earned) in 6 1/3 innings in Thursday's win over the D'Backs.

The Astros bullpen couldn't hold the lead the offense afforded Feldman. The right-hander allowed four hits -- including a home run to Chris Owings -- without issuing a walk and striking out six batters. Feldman had struggled in recent starts, but lowered his ERA to 3.98 and his WHIP to 1.31 with Thursday's effort. He'll go up against the Nationals on the road in his next start.

Scott Feldman was pulled after allowing three unearned runs in 1 2/3 innings Saturday in a loss to the Twins.

It's not very often a starter's ERA goes down in an outing in which he was pulled in the second inning, but Feldman's did today. With errors from Matt Dominguez and Marwin Gonzalez extending the frame, Feldman was up to 43 pitches in the second, and the Astros decided that was enough. Still, while the defense did him wrong, Feldman made his own trouble by hitting the leadoff man and then walking a pair of batters. He dropped to 3-4 on the year, but his ERA went from 4.25 to 4.12.

Scott Feldman was hammered for nine earned runs in 5 1/3 innings Sunday by the Orioles.

Feldman entered the outing with a 3.02 ERA and by the time the day was done that mark was all the way up to 4.25. He surrendered 11 hits -- including a two-run homer to David Lough in the second inning and a grand slam to Manny Machado in the O's six-run sixth inning. Feldman will try to bounce back next weekend at Target Field.

Scott Feldman worked six innings and allowed two runs on eight hits Monday against the Royals.

The right-hander failed to punch out a batter and walked one to earn the victory. Kansas City had no trouble making contact off the veteran, but Feldman held the Royals to two extra-base hits and limited damage without his best stuff. The 31-year-old, signed to a three-year, $30 million deal over the winter, has met Houston's early expectations by going 3-2 with a 3.02 ERA and 1.28 WHIP over his first eight starts. Feldman, who will surely have a popular name in late July, hosts Baltimore over the weekend.

Scott Feldman gave up four runs and 10 hits over five innings Wednesday against the Rangers.

Feldman was terrific against his former team when he faced them last month, pitching seven scoreless innings. Obviously, tonight didn't find him in the same form. He's given up six runs in 11 innings since coming off the DL last week, which is more along the lines of what we'd expect from him going forward.

Scott Feldman pitched six innings and allowed two runs Friday against the Orioles in his return from the disabled list.

Feldman missed three starts with biceps tendinitis. It's far from assured that his arm problems are behind him, but it was an encouraging performance tonight, even if he did allow his first two homers of the year. He went without a longball surrendered in his first four starts.
