Fulmer was solid in his last outing as he was able to put in a quality start, but was tagged with his eighth loss of the season in a 0-3 loss to the Texas Rangers. He went seven innings giving up five hits, two earned runs and one home run while he struck out six and walked three.
In 107.1 innings of work, Fulmer owns a sub-par strikeout (7.63 K/9) to walk (3.02 BB/9) rate, but as fared well against the long ball (1.01 HR/9). The end-result is a moderate 4.11 ERA and a similar 4.03 FIP.
Detroit continues to play losing baseball as they could only win two of their last six contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .230/.299/.340 to go with 14 extra-base hits and 19 RBI.
Cole continues his torrid pace as he put in another quality start, but walked away with the no-decision as Houston would go on to lose to the Oakland Athletics 0-2. He pitched six scoreless-innings giving up just three hits while striking out 11 and walking three.
In 122.2 innings, Cole has been one of the most dominant pitchers in the league sporting a 12.40 K/9, 3.01 BB/9, 1.03 HR/9 and an 82.4% LOB%. The end-result is a sparkling 2.57 ERA and a slightly higher but still shiny 2.98 FIP.
Houston has managed to play winning baseball in the past week as they were able to win four of their seven contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .252/.332/.395 to go with 18 extra-base hits and 36 RBI.
