Collin McHugh allowed five runs over five innings but earned the win Tuesday against the Angels.
McHugh wasn't terribly sharp -- he gave up seven hits and walked four in the game -- but he was the sharper of the two starters, and that was good enough to earn him the victory. It was still a less-than-encouraging showing from the 28-year-old, who now owns a 4.43 ERA and 1.32 WHIP through 21 starts. He'll look for his 13th win of the year Sunday against the Diamondbacks.

Collin McHugh pitched seven innings of two-run ball Wednesday in a victory over the Red Sox.

Jul 22 - 11:35 PM

Collin McHugh picked up his 10th victory of the season on Friday, allowing just one run over six innings against the Rangers.

McHugh had to work his way out of trouble many times in the ballgame as he surrendered 11 hits, but was able to bear down and get big outs when necessary. The only run that he allowed in he allowed came on an RBI single by Mitch Moreland in the sixth inning. He'll look to carry over this strong outing when he takes on the Red Sox on Thursday.
Jul 17 - 11:31 PM

Collin McHugh allowed three runs over seven innings in a loss to the Rays on Friday.

The Rays weren't able to break through until the sixth. All told, McHugh gave up four hits (including a solo homer) and one walk while striking out six. While McHugh has been better of late, he'll finish up the first half with a disappointing 4.50 ERA.
Jul 10 - 9:46 PM

Collin McHugh yielded four runs (three earned) over 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Red Sox on Saturday.

McHugh was coming off two strong outings, but he struggled in this one, allowing seven hits and three walks. He struck out just one of the 28 batters he faced. McHugh fell to 9-4 with the loss and owns a disappointing 4.54 ERA through 17 starts on the year. He'll get the Indians on the road next week.
Jul 4 - 4:50 PM

Collin McHugh went eight strong innings Sunday, allowing two hits and one run in a 3-1 victory over the Yankees.

The Yankees actually drew first blood with a Brett Gardner RBI single in the third inning, but McHugh and the bullpen kept them in check for the rest of the contest. He gave up just two hits, both singles, and walked two while striking out eight in the game. It was the second straight game McHugh has gone eight innings and his third win in a row, running his record to 9-3 with a 4.51 ERA and 1.27 WHIP. McHugh will try to keep it rolling Saturday at the Red Sox.
Jun 28 - 4:48 PM

Collin McHugh pitched eight innings of two-run ball to beat the Angels on Tuesday.

McHugh struck out six and walked one in one of his best starts of the year. It's mostly about staying away from the long ball for him; he's 6-1 with a 3.33 ERA when he doesn't allow a homer and 2-2 with a 5.74 ERA the rest of the time.
Jun 24 - 1:37 AM

Collin McHugh yielded three runs over six innings in Thursday's 8-4 win over the Rockies.

McHugh gave up a three-run homer in the first inning, but managed to hold the Rockies off the board the rest of his outing. While he gave up just four hits and struck out eight, he walked a season-high five batters. Fantasy owners will take whatever progress they can get from him, but it's still hard to trust him right now. He'll bring a 5.04 ERA into a start against the Angels next week.
Jun 18 - 6:53 PM

Collin McHugh was absolutely crushed by the Mariners on Saturday, surrendering eight runs on nine hits over just three innings.

The game started out horribly enough for McHugh, who allowed five runs to the Mariners in the first inning. The big blow in the frame was a three-run homer by Logan Morrison. McHugh would allow another homer to Morrison in the third inning, this time a two-run shot. That made the score 8-0 and McHugh wouldn't have a chance to allow a third Morrison homer. As you might suspect, eight runs in three innings will do a number on your ERA. In this case, McHugh's 4.34 number entering the game jumped to 5.08. A road outing against the Rockies next Thursday afternoon will serve as his opportunity to bounce back from this disaster.
Jun 13 - 7:38 PM

Collin McHugh took a no-decision, allowing three runs in six innings as the Astros were walk-off losers of Sunday's game against the Blue Jays.

McHugh gave up seven hits -- including a solo home run to Jose Bautista and a two-run home run to Russell Martin -- while walking one and striking out three. The right-hander has been mediocre this season, carrying a 4.34 ERA with a 1.24 WHIP and a 61/14 K/BB ratio in 76 2/3 innings. Nevertheless, he's 6-2 on the year, which he'll try to further improve in his next start at home against the Mariners.
Jun 7 - 4:27 PM

Collin McHugh allowed four runs over seven innings but earned the win against the Orioles on Tuesday.

McHugh gave up six hits, walked two and struck out six in the win. Wins have been tough to come by for the right-hander in recent weeks, as Tuesday's was just his second since May 7. McHugh is 6-2 with a 4.33 ERA and 1.23 WHIP on the season. He'll try to make it two in a row Sunday at the Blue Jays.
Jun 2 - 11:45 PM

Collin McHugh allowed nine hits and four runs over six innings in a no-decision against the Orioles on Wednesday.

Things fell apart for McHugh in the fourth inning, when the Orioles plated all four of their runs against the right-hander. That included back-to-back homers from Chris Davis and Steve Pearce. McHugh was otherwise pretty good, striking out five without walking a batter. He'll carry a 5-2 record and 4.24 ERA into Tuesday's rematch with the same O's.
May 27 - 8:14 PM

Collin McHugh logged a quality start in a losing effort against the Tigers on Friday, allowing three runs on nine hits over seven innings of work.

McHugh struck out a pair on the night while walking one. All of the damage against him came on one swing of the bat, as J.D. Martinez launched a two-out three-run home run in the third inning. He'll carry a 3.43 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 47/11 K/BB ratio into Wednesday's matchup against the Orioles in Baltimore.
May 22 - 10:09 PM

Colin McHugh had the strikeout working against the Blue Jays in Sunday's 4-2 win, fanning nine batters over seven innings while allowing two runs.

McHugh bounced back nicely from the seven-run shellacking the Giants handed him in his last start, as the Blue Jays were unable to dent the scoreboard outside of sacrifice flies in the third and fourth innings. McHugh allowed six hits and walked just one on the other side of those nine strikeouts. He boasts a 3.38 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and a 45/10 K/BB ratio over 50 2/3 innings. His next start could be a toughie, though, as he'll be tossing on the road against the Tigers.
May 17 - 4:39 PM

The Giants got to Collin McHugh for seven runs -- three earned -- over 4 2/3 innings in Tuesday's loss.

McHugh gave up three runs in the second inning after two singles, a hit batter and a three-run double. A couple fielding errors in the fifth inning contributed to the Giants' other four runs against the right-hander. In total, he allowed six hits and walked two while striking out three. It was the first loss of the year for McHugh, who is still 4-1 with a 3.50 ERA in seven starts. He'll try to get back in the win column Sunday against the Blue Jays.
