Player Notes
Taijuan Walker was knocked around by the Astros on Saturday, surrendering eight runs (seven earned)--including three home runs--in just three innings.

Advice: Walker was coming off of one of his best starts of the season after shutting down the Rangers over seven innings on Monday, but he followed it up with one of his worst. The Mariners held an early 3-0 lead before Walker squandered the advantage. The Astros scored two runs on a few light hits in the second inning. The hits were not so light in the third, when a two-run homer by Evan Gattis and a solo Colby Rasmus shot put the Astros up 5-3. Walker allowed two singles to open the fourth before a three-run homer by Jose Altuve ended his night. He now holds a 7.54 ERA and a 2.04 WHIP, plus a 21/12 K/BB ratio over 22 2/3 innings. A slight positive, at least: He's walked only two over his last ten innings, an improvement over his free-pass slinging ways to open the season. Walker will try to put this one behind him when he faces the A's in his next start.

Taijuan Walker was dominant against the Rangers in a win on Monday, allowing just an unearned run in seven innings.

Advice: The unearned run scored in the fourth inning, when Brad Miller made a poor throw after fielding an Elvis Andrus grounder, which would have otherwise been an inning-ending out. Walker gave up six hits, walked one, and struck out five. The right-hander had racked up three mediocre starts to begin the season. Monday's outing lowers his ERA to 6.86. He's also carrying an abysmal 2.29 WHIP and a 19/11 K/BB ratio in 19 2/3 innings. Walker will look for continued success when he faces the Astros in Houston next.
