Eovaldi was a tough luck loser in his final start of the season, limiting the Nationals to just two runs over seven strong innings to drop his record to 6-14 on the year.
Eovaldi walked three and struck out five, allowing eight hits over the seven frames. The hard-throwing right-hander closed the season with back-to-back quality outings that both resulted in losses. Despite losing each of his last eight decisions, Eovaldi took a significant step forward in 2014, posting a 4.37 ERA and 1.33 WHIP with 142 strikeouts and 43 walks over a career-best 199.2 innings pitched. Eovaldi appeared to wear down a bit in the second half, but will be primed improve on his solid campaign as the Marlins' No. 3 next season.
