Williams (5-6) took the loss Monday, surrendering eight runs (six earned) on six hits and three walks over only two innings while striking out one as the Pirates were routed 13-0 by the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

Three of the six hits off Williams left the yard, but given that the Washington offense has been averaging better than 12 runs a game since last Wednesday, there may not have been much he could have done to avoid the drubbing. The right-hander now carries a 5.65 ERA and 81:32 K:BB through 106.2 innings, and he'll look to turn things around in his next start Saturday, at home against the Reds.

Williams (5-5) was credited with the win against the Angels on Tuesday, tossing five innings and giving up five runs on seven hits and five walks while striking out two.

EDGE Analysis

Williams was far from effective in his five innings, allowing four extra-base hits and a season-high five walks, but managed to pitch just well enough to even his record. He gave up a trio of first-inning runs on three hits and two free passes, then surrendered single tallies in the second and third frames. To his credit, he kept his composure to retire six of seven batters over his final two innings, walking away with the win as a result of the Pirates rallying for four runs in their half of the fifth. Williams has now given up 14 earned runs in 16 innings over his last three starts to raise his season ERA to 5.25. He'll head home to face the Nationals on Monday in his next scheduled start.

Williams (4-5) gave up six runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out one through five innings to take the loss against the Brewers on Wednesday.

Williams was hit hard early and often, allowing runs in four of the five frames he pitched. After allowing 15 home runs in 31 starts in 2018, Williams has already surrendered 15 long balls in 2019. Williams has a 5.06 ERA and 78 strikeouts through 17 starts this season. Williams will make his next start Monday against the Angels in Anaheim.

Williams (4-4) earned the win after giving up three runs on six hits and three walks while striking out two over six innings Friday against the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

Williams surrendered two runs in the first inning and another in the third, though he managed to turn in a quality start. Fortunately, his team was able to rally with the help of a five-run fourth inning to provide enough run support for the 27-year-old right-hander to emerge with the victory. Williams owns a 4.75 ERA and 1.32 WHIP with 77 strikeouts across 94.2 innings this season.

Williams (3-4) allowed three runs on four hits with two walks and seven strikeouts across seven innings while taking a loss against the Mets on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

While Williams did allow two homers, he ultimately didn't receive enough support to win this pitching duel. The Pirates didn't score a run, and Jung Ho Kang couldn't catch an easy popup one batter before J.D. Davis hit a homer, tagging Williams with an extra run (it was counted as earned). Still, the growing home run problem is a concern for Williams, as he's yielded 11 homers in six starts since returning from the IL on June 19. Williams, who owns a 4.87 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 75 strikeouts in 88.2 innings this season, will look to make the proper corrections against the Mets again Friday.

Williams allowed two runs (one earned) on five hits with two walks and seven strikeouts across five innings during a no-decision against the Cardinals on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Despite lasting only five innings, Williams appeared to return to form -- no less, just days after coming down with a nasty flu bug. Coming into Monday, Williams owned a 9.53 ERA over four starts since returning from the injured list on June 19. But in this start, he gave up just one earned run on a solo shot, and he pitched around three errors, yielding only one unearned run. Overall, Williams is still 3-3 with a 4.96 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 68 strikeouts in 81.2 innings. He will pitch again at the Mets on Saturday.

Williams (3-3) allowed eight runs on 11 hits with three walks and four strikeouts across 5.1 innings while taking a loss against the Cubs on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

The 27-year-old has struggled lately, but this might have been his worst start of the season. The Cubs really hit Williams hard, particularly in the fifth and sixth innings. The 11 hits he allowed was a season high along with the three homers he yielded. After 24 runs permitted in his last four starts, all the sudden Williams owns a 5.17 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and .289 batting average against. He also has 61 strikeouts in 76.2 innings this season. Williams will look to get right at home against the Phillies on Saturday.
