Now 12-10 on the season, Chacin sports a 3.96 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 132/63 K/BB ratio across 159 innings. He'll look to extend his winning streak on Friday against the Diamondbacks in Arizona.

Jhoulys Chacin was unable to find the plate in Thursday's loss to the Nationals, walking four while allowing one run over five innings.

He threw just 63 of his 104 pitches for strikes. Chacin has walked four batters in each of his last two starts and has handed out at least three free passes in six of his last 10 outings. He will carry a 3.98 ERA and 1.28 WHIP into a road showdown with the Cardinals next time he toes the rubber.

He also hasn't been very good on the road, going 4-6 with a 6.90 ERA over 12 road outings. However, Chacin is 7-2 with a 1.86 ERA through 12 outings at home. He'll be back at Petco Park on Thursday against the Nationals.

He is 7-2 with a 1.86 ERA in 12 starts at home. Up next for the 29-year-old right-hander is a daunting duel at Dodger Stadium.

He has been outstanding at home this season and a nightmare when pitching away from PetCo Park. Luckily for fantasy owners he'll be home again next time out when he does battle against the Twins on Tuesday.
