Rasner struggles again

Through the first five innings tonight, Darrell Rasner has given up seven earned runs and 10 hits. Since going 3-0 in his first three starts, Rasner has not been the same pitcher. He is 1-4 (tonight pending) with a 6.00 ERA in his last six starts.

At a time when he's needed most, he's pitching extremely poorly. His last start was against Kansas City when he only gave up two runs over eight innings. He then gave up seven runs against Oakland and walked five batters in an 8-5 victory over San Diego.

Part of the blame has to be put on the offense tonight. Tom Gorzelanny has walked five batters at this point but has been able to wiggle out of trouble. Ironically enough, in the sixth inning, he hasn't walked a batter but has given up two runs thus far.
