Matt Moore had nothing while taking a no-decision in Thursday's loss to the Rockies, surrendering eight runs on 11 hits over three innings.

Moore was able to keep the Rockies in the park, but the end result was ugly all the same. He allowed three runs in the first inning, four in the second and one more in the third to put a bow on this lump of coal. The troublesome outing raised his ERA from a bloated 5.28 to an even more ungainly 6.00. Up next on the docket, a road start against the Braves as he tries for a respectable outing.
Jun 16 - 12:47 AM

Matt Moore gave up four runs in six innings Friday in a loss to the Twins.

Moore's big mistake was giving up a three-run double to opposing starter Ervin Santana after walking Jason Castro to load the bases with two outs in the fourth. It was one the Giants simply couldn't recover from with the way their offense has struggled. Moore is now 2-7 with a 5.28 ERA.
Jun 10 - 1:50 AM

Matt Moore struggled in a no-decision against the Phillies on Sunday, surrendering five runs (four earned) on six hits over his four innings of work.

Moore also issued a pair of walks and struck out one on the afternoon. The Phillies got to him early and often in this one, with a pair of run-scoring doubles in the first inning and a two-run blast from Freddy Galvis in the second. He has been a disappointment for the Giants this season, posting a 2-6 record to go along with an uninspiring 5.22 ERA and 1.49 WHIP. He'll look to get back on track on Friday when he does battle against the Twins.
Jun 4 - 6:00 PM

Matt Moore allowed just two earned runs over seven innings but took a loss Monday versus the Nationals.

Moore struck out five and didn't issue a walk, but he did give up six hits -- including a home run to Ryan Zimmerman in the top of the second inning. San Francisco's offense backed him with zero runs of support. This game will be remembered mostly for a nasty eighth-inning fight between Bryce Harper and Hunter Strickland. Moore will face the Phillies on the road next. He's 2-6 with a 4.98 ERA.
May 29 - 7:39 PM

Matt Moore surrendered four runs -- three earned -- in six-plus innings Wednesday against the Cubs.

Moore took the loss, leaving him 2-5 with a 5.28 ERA. He'll likely get on a roll at some point and amass some mixed-league value, but he's been really disappointing thus far. He'll face the hard-hitting Nationals next time out.
May 24 - 11:55 PM

Matt Moore led his club to a 3-1 win over the Reds on Saturday by allowing just one run in 7 1/3 innings.

He gave up eight hits and three walks while notching seven strikeouts. He threw 120 pitches in the outing in an effort to save the bullpen after last night's 17 inning marathon. The one run he allowed came on a solo home run by Scott Schebler. Moore has been wildly inconsistent this season but got the job done well today. His record moves to 2-4 with a 5.67 ERA through eight starts. He has a 40/18 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 46 innings.
May 13 - 7:32 PM

Matt Moore allowed three earned runs over 5 1/3 innings Monday in a no-decision versus the Mets.

Moore struck out give and issued only one walk, but the Mets rattled off seven hits against him and went on to win the game in the bottom of the ninth. Moore is 1-4 with a 6.52 ERA, 1.55 WHIP, and 33/15 K/BB ratio in 38 2/3 innings (seven starts) this season for San Francisco. He'll get the Reds at home next.
May 8 - 11:11 PM

Matt Moore was touched up for nine earned runs, six hits and five walks over just 3 1/3 innings in a loss Tuesday at L.A. Dodgers.

Moore looked to be turning a corner by allowing just one run and two hits over seven frames against this same Dodgers team in San Francisco on April 27, but he was back to his awful ways again Tuesday. While he has been bad overall, he is even worse on the road with a 0-3 record and 12.79 ERA over 12 2/3 innings across three starts. He cannot be trusted outside of the deepest of NL-only fantasy leagues right now.
May 3 - 2:25 AM

Matt Moore limited the Dodgers to one run and two hits over seven innings in a no-decision Thursday.

This makes two good starts and three bad ones from Moore, who never has found much in the way of consistency as a major leaguer. He'll have mixed-league value in the end, but he'll probably continue to frustrate along the way.
Apr 27 - 8:19 PM

Matt Moore allowed six earned runs, nine hits and a walk with four strikeouts over four innings in a loss Saturday at Colorado.

The southpaw is struggling out of the gate, failing to last longer than 5 2/3 innings in three of his four outings. Walks have been an issue, as he has yielded six free passes over 23 innings and he had a problem keeping the ball in the yard Saturday. He has served up five homers over his past 17 2/3 innings. As such he is only worth a look in NL-only play right now. He faces another uphill battle when the Dodgers visit on Thursday afternoon.
Apr 23 - 1:38 AM

Matt Moore gave up 10 hits and five runs over 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the Rockies on Saturday.

Moore also walked three in the outing, so he was actually somewhat fortunate to allow only the five runs. He also struck out five. The 27-year-old now has one stellar start and two forgettable ones on the year, leaving him with a 4.26 ERA and 1.37 WHIP through three starts. His life doesn't get any easier next weekend, when the Giants visit these same Rockies in Colorado.
Apr 15 - 9:32 PM

Matt Moore held the Diamondbacks to one run in eight innings Monday as the Giants earned a 4-1 victory.

Moore gave up a solo home run to Yasmany Tomas in the top of the fifth inning but was otherwise brilliant, yielding just three total hits while striking out five. He did not issue a walk. The left-hander stands 1-1 with a 2.71 ERA, 0.98 WHIP, and 8/2 K/BB ratio through his first two starts covering 13 1/3 innings. A home date with the Rockies is next.
Apr 10 - 7:44 PM

Matt Moore failed to hold an early lead in Wednesday's loss to the Diamondbacks, yielding six runs (three earned) on eight hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Moore struck out three and walked two on the evening. Chris Owings managed an RBI single against him in the third inning, but it was the fifth inning when things truly went off the rails. In that frame, a two-run fielding error by Brandon Belt drew the Diamondbacks to within 4-3, after which Yasmany Tomas came through with a game-tying RBI double. The Diamondbacks would uncoil for two more runs in the sixth to polish off the scoring on Moore's line. He posted a 4.08 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 178/72 K/BB ratio over 198 1/3 frames last season. His next scheduled start will come (once again) against the Diamondbacks, though Moore will be playing host in that one.
Apr 6 - 1:03 AM

Matt Moore allowed just two hits over five innings in Saturday's Cactus League date with the Mariners.

Moore looked in midseason form for this one, striking out four and walking one on the afternoon. He has now blanked the opposition in two of his last three starts after struggling out of the spring gates. He is worth fantasy consideration in both mixed and NL-only formats.
