Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Finally gets into win column

Kuhl (1-4) picked up the win in Friday's 11-10 victory over Cleveland, allowing one run on four hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out four. The Pirates' bullpen nearly gave away the win after the team took an 11-1 lead into the seventh inning, but Kuhl did get rewarded for his efforts in the end. It was the right-hander's second quality start of the season in eight tries, and he'll carry a 5.66 ERA, 1.49 WHIP and 27:22 K:BB through 35 innings into his next outing.

Chad Kuhl blames ‘chalky’ baseballs for Pirates’ control issues

MILWAUKEE — The Pirates have walked 15 Brewers during the first two games of this series, and Chad Kuhl thinks he knows why. It’s the baseballs. More specifically, the right-handed starter believes it’s a “bad batch” of baseballs that pitchers have been using for this series, ones he said have been incredibly hard to grip.

Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Loses third straight start

Kuhl (0-4) allowed six runs (five earned) on five hits and four walks with two strikeouts in 3.1 innings, taking the loss versus Milwaukee on Saturday. Kuhl was spotted a four-run lead in the second inning, but he ultimately gave it all back and then some before he was pulled in the fourth. Reliever Clay Holmes allowed an inherited runner to score, which tacked the sixth run on Kuhl's line. The right-hander has had little success in 2021 with a 6.52 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 23:21 K:BB across 29 innings. His next start is expected to be against Cleveland during next weekend's series.

Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Stuck with third loss

Kuhl (0-3) allowed three runs (two earned) on three hits and a walk with two strikeouts in six innings, taking the loss Sunday versus Miami. He also hit one batter. Kuhl wasn't poor on the mound, as his only big mistake was a Jesus Aguilar solo home run in the second inning. In the sixth, the right-hander yielded an unearned run and a sacrifice fly, and that was enough to take his second loss in as many starts. He's pitched to a 5.61 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 21:17 K:BB across 25.2 innings this season. Kuhl lines up for a road start in Milwaukee next weekend.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — June could not arrive soon enough for the Pirates. After finishing April at 12-13, they endured an awful May, dropping 20 of their 28 games after Monday’s 7-3 loss to the Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium. While the Pirates had a hard time finding consistent...

Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Handed loss in return from IL

Kuhl (0-2) took the loss Monday against the Royals after allowing three runs on six hits while striking out five over four innings. Kuhl allowed an RBI single in the first and two more to score in the second before settling down the next two innings. He has given up at least three runs in four of his five starts and has failed to go more than five innings in any of them. One positive to take away from Monday's outing, however, is that Kuhl did not walk a batter after he walked 16 over his first 15.2 innings this season. The 28-year-old now owns a 6.41 ERA and will look to straighten things out in his next start.
