Tom Koehler ended his season with a thud, coughing up five runs in three innings on Sunday but escaped with a no-decision as the Marlins lost to the Nationals.

He couldn't throw strikes. He walked five batters and took 78 pitches to get through three-plus innings. His nemesis was opposing starter Max Scherzer, who hit a pair of two-RBI singles off him. Koehler finishes the season with a 9-13 record and a 4.33 ERA in 33 starts. Walks have been a problem all year. He fanned 147 batters and walked 83 in 176 2/3 innings. Only three pitchers walked more batters than Koehler did this year.

Tom Koehler lasted just 3 2/3 innings Tuesday, allowing four runs on six hits in a loss.

Koehler issued four free passes and served up two homers -- two-run shots by Jay Bruce and Yoenis Cespedes -- in the abbreviated start. If Tuesday's start was his last in 2016, the 30-year-old finishes with a 4.15 ERA and 1.45 WHIP through 32 starts. Statistically, the season was Koehler's worst since 2013, but he's now made at least 31 starts with an ERA between 3.81 and 4.15 and between 9 and 11 wins in each of his last three seasons.

Tom Koehler lasted only four innings and gave up four runs -- three earned -- in a loss to the Nationals on Wednesday.

The unearned run was his own fault as he made the first of two Marlins errors that allowed the first run to score in the third inning. He got nailed for a three-run jack off the bat of Ryan Zimmerman in his fourth and final frame. Koehler's 9-12 record and 4.02 ERA are very close to what he has done for three years in a row now. He is a middle-of-the-road major league pitcher worthy of filling out the back side of fantasy rotations.

Tom Koehler yielded two runs over five-plus innings in a no-decision against the Phillies on Friday.

Koehler blanked the Phillies until Ryan Howard took him deep to begin the bottom of the sixth inning. He was pulled after Cameron Rupp followed with a double, but Mike Dunn and Austin Brice permitted two more runs in the frame to put the Phillies ahead. Koehler struck out seven and walked three in the no-decision and now has a 3.96 ERA and 138/71 K/BB ratio over 166 innings. He gets the Nationals at home next week.

Tom Koehler struggled with the long ball on Saturday, serving up three homers over his five-plus innings of work in a loss to the Dodgers.

Koehler allowed four runs on six hits and a pair of walks in his five-plus frames, striking out four along the way. He carried a shutout into the fifth inning where Joc Pederson hit a solo homer. Koehler returned for the sixth, where he allowed a two-run homer to Kyle Seager and a solo shot to Justin Turner before he was lifted. While he has shown flashes, the right-hander will carry a disappointing 3.97 ERA and 1.42 WHIP into Friday's start against the Phillies in Philadelphia.

Tom Koehler fired six shutout innings in a no-decision against the Indians on Sunday.

Koehler struck out six on the day while issuing a pair of free passes. He departed with a 2-0 lead and in line for his 10th victory, but the Marlins bullpen was unable to oblige. He'll carry a 3.87 ERA and 1.41 WHIP into Saturday's start against the Dodgers.

Tom Koehler allowed five runs on 10 hits over five innings in a loss to the Mets on Tuesday.

The start was the worst for Koehler in two months -- the last time he allowed five runs was on June 29, and his 10 hits were a season high for the right-hander. He'd been especially good over his previous seven starts, rattling off seven consecutive quality starts before Tuesday. The loss dropped him to 9-10 with a 4.02 ERA and 1.43 WHIP. A tough interleague test against the Indians is on tap for Koehler on Sunday.

Tom Koehler allowed four runs -- three earned -- over six innings in a loss to the Royals on Thursday.

Koehler gave up seven hits and walked two, but six strikeouts helped limit the damage. Still, the quality start wasn't enough to keep him from taking the loss. Koehler fell to 9-9 with a 3.85 ERA and 1.39 WHIP in 26 starts overall. The right-hander will next square off with the Mets on Tuesday.

Tom Koehler was handed a no-decision Friday after allowing two runs over six innings against the Pirates.

Koehler exited the game in position for the victory, but the bullpen quickly gave up the lead in the seventh inning. Still, it was another solid outing, as he struck out a pair and walked none. The only offense was a two-run homer by David Freese in the fourth inning. Koehler now owns a 1.62 ERA and 30/7 K/BB ratio in 39 innings over his last six starts.

Tom Koehler turned in a quality start in Sunday's win over the White Sox, allowing three runs on six hits over six innings.

Koehler struck out five and walked one on the afternoon. He also helped his own cause by hitting a two-run single in the fifth inning. The 30-year-old right-hander will carry a 3.86 ERA and 1.39 WHIP into a road date with the Pirates next time he toes the rubber.

Tom Koehler continued to roll along Tuesday, giving up just two hits over seven shutout innings in a 2-0 victory over the Giants.

He walked three but struck out six batters, permitting just a couple singles on the night. Koehler has had a down season but has been lights out of late, allowing just two runs over his last four starts covering 27 innings (0.67 ERA). His 3.83 ERA is the lowest it's been since his first start of the season. Koehler will try to keep it going against the Reds and Pirates next week.

Tom Koehler tossed six innings of one-run ball Wednesday in a no-decision versus the Cubs.

Koehler struck out seven and yielded just one walk and five hits. He deserved a victory for that fine performance in a tough matchup at Wrigley Field, but Marlins closer A.J. Ramos let up three runs in the bottom of the ninth inning to blow the game. Koehler has strung together four really good starts. Actually he's been pretty good since April. Up next is an outing at home against the Giants.

Tom Koehler blanked the Phillies for six innings to win Tuesday.

Koehler allowed three hits, walked one and struck out five. After a poor April, he's posted a 3.44 ERA in his last 16 starts. His WHIP is a less impressive 1.35 during that span, though.
Tue, Jul 26, 2016 10:41:00 PM

Tom Koehler tossed eight strong innings Thursday, holding the Phillies to three runs -- one earned -- in a 9-3 victory.

The three runs were a bit misleading, as an error in the fourth inning prolonged the frame for Ryan Howard, who hit a two-run shot. The homer was the first hit allowed in the game by Koehler, and he would allow just one more before exiting. Koehler also walked one while striking out five. The win was his first in over a month, improving his record to 7-8 with a 4.42 ERA and 1.51 WHIP. A rematch with the Phillies is up next, on Tuesday.
