Brewers' Eric Lauer: Done in by long ball

Lauer (3-1) gave up four earned runs on six hits and zero walks while striking out seven in five innings Saturday in Miami. He took the loss. It's encouraging that in what might be his worst start of the season through six starts, Lauer still struck out enough batters to contribute something for fantasy. He has struck out 39 batters in 24.1 innings over his last four starts. This marked the first time all season he gave up more than one home run, as Jesus Aguilar, Jorge Soler and Brian Anderson all took him deep. Lauer lines up to face the Nationals at home next weekend.

Is Eric Lauer the Latest Product of the Brewers’ Ace Factory?

It’s clear, by now, that Milwaukee Brewers left-hander Eric Lauer is a man on a mission. And perhaps the breakout star of the season so far. His 1.82 ERA in 29.2 innings ranks among the best in the league, and it comes with lots of strikeouts – 42 to be precise – and a very encouraging statistical profile that suggests this version of Lauer has some staying power.

Strong effort from Eric Lauer helps Brewers beat Atlanta 6-3 ATLANTA (AP) — Eric Lauer allowed one earned run, Christian Yelich’s infield single was the big hit in Milwaukee’s four-run sixth inning, and the streaking Brewers beat the Atlanta Braves 6-3. The NL Central-leading Brewers have won four straight and nine of 10. Lauer gave up two runs, one earned, on two hits and three walks in 6 1/3 innings. He had eight strikeouts. Atlanta’s Ronald Acuña Jr. opened the fourth with a 450-foot homer to center field — his first since returning from knee surgery.

Brewers' Eric Lauer: Sharp in third win

Lauer (3-0) picked up the win Friday, allowing two runs (one earned) on two hits and three walks over 6.1 innings in a 6-3 victory over Atlanta. He struck out eight. The southpaw tossed 94 pitches (59 strikes) as he reeled off his fourth straight quality start. The three free passes were a season high for Lauer and he did serve up another homer, his fourth in 29.2 innings on the year, but it's hard to argue with the career-high 36.2 percent strikeout rate he's compiled so far. Lauer will take a 1.82 ERA and 0.94 WHIP into his next outing.
