Stults pitched just five innings Tuesday, allowing three runs on six hits and three walks while striking out seven batters in picking up his 12th loss of the year (3-12) in the Padres' 6-0 loss to the Cubs.
Although he didn't pitch deep into the game Tuesday, nor was he that effective, Stults has been serviceable of late, allowing 10 run in his last five starts (spanning 29.1 innings). Still, with his inability to pitch deep into games (104.1 innings pitched in 20 starts), coupled with an unsightly 5.00 ERA and 1.46 WHIP, Stults is not a reliable pitcher to bank on. Stults is next scheduled to take the mound Sunday in Atlanta.
