Astros SP Mike Fiers fires no-hitter against Dodgers on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/21/2015) New Astros pitcher Mike Fiers tossed his first-career no-hitter, as he shut down the Dodgers in the 3-0 victory on Friday. Fiers, who walked three and struck out 10, needed a whopping 134 pitches to complete the no-no, but he was spectacular in shutting down a very potent offense.

Fiers' no-hitter is the first ever at Minute-Maid Park. He's the first Astros pitcher to throw a no-hitter since six pitchers combined for the feat back in 2003 against the Yankees. The last individual Astros pitcher to throw a no-hitter was Darryl Kile back in 1993.

Fiers was making his third start--fourth overall performance--with the Astros, after he was acquired at last month's trade deadline. Fiers is now 1-0 with a 2.42 ERA in his tenure with the Astros. 


Astros shuffle pitching rotation to make room for Lance McCullers


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2015) The Astros will call up pitcher Lance McCullers in order to start Sunday's game against the Dodgers, the team announced.

McCullers was demoted in early August after posting a 3.17 ERA over 76 2/3 innings this season. With McCullers starting Sunday, the team will turn to pitchers Mike Fiers on Friday and Scott Kazmir on Saturday.


Astros SP Mike Fiers gets no-decision in Sunday start


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(8/16/2015) Astros starting pitcher Mike Fiers earned a no-decision for his start against the Tigers on Sunday.

Fiers allowed two unearned runs on five hits in 5 1/3 innings. He struck out five batters and issued two walks.

Fiers (5-9) has a 3.87 ERA in 135 innings this season.


Mike Fiers takes no-decision for Astros


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2015) Astros pitcher Mike Fiers took his second straight no-decision since being traded prior to the July 31 deadline. 

Fiers allowed one run in 6 2/3 innings against Oakland on Sunday, his fewest runs allowed since July 17. The Houston bullpen couldn't protect the lead, however.

Fiers walked one and struck out four, his fewest number of strikeouts in a month. 


Mike Fiers' Astros debut comes in relief effort Monday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/4/2015) Mike Fiers had to make his Astros debut a day earlier than expected, as he pitched in relief Monday against the Rangers after starter Lance McCullers failed to make it out of the first inning.

While Fiers gave the Astros five innings in the 12-9 loss, he allowed six runs on seven hits and three walks. He had six strikeouts.

"I was happy that Fiers came in and was able to get through the majority of that game by saving some of our bullpen pieces to live to start another day," manager A.J. Hinch said, per MLB.com.

Dan Straily will be promoted from the minors to start Tuesday's game in place of Fiers.


Astros SP Mike Fiers to make team debut on Tuesday vs. Rangers


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/1/2015) Newly-acquired pitcher Mike Fiers will make his Astros debut and start Tuesday's game against the Rangers, manager A.J. Hinch announced on Saturday. Fiers' next scheduled day would have been Monday, but Hinch said he wanted to give the right-hander an extra day of rest.

"He's willing to do anything and he's raring to go," Hinch said, per MLB.com. "I wanted to see physically. He hasn't done a ton for a couple days ... He's had to move himself here and get himself ready, and some of the baseball for a pitcher has taken a little bit of a back seat for 48 hours."

Fiers was acquired along with Carlos Gomez from the Brewers on Thursday. Fiers is 5-9 with a 3.87 ERA so far in 2015.


Astros acquire Carlos Gomez, Mike Fiers from Brewers


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/30/2015) The Astros and the Brewers have struck a deal that would send center fielder Carlos Gomez and starter Mike Fiers to Houston, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports. The Brewers are expected to get several prospects back in the deal, Heyman adds.

Gomez was nearly dealt to the Mets on Wednesday, but the trade fell through after the Mets backed out due to medical concerns. Gomez's addition to the Astros will give Houston a very solid outfield and lineup down the stretch. 

Fiers has been solid for the Brewers this year, posting a 3.89 ERA in 21 starts. He will solidify an already deep rotation for the Astros.

The Brewers officially announced the deal, and they will receive outfielders Domingo Santana and Brett Phillips, along with pitchers Josh Hader and Adrian Houser.


Brewers SP Mike Fiers allows two runs in loss to Giants


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/29/2015) Brewers starting pitcher Mike Fiers pitched well during his start against the Giants on Wednesday, but his team didn't produce the amount of run support for him to pick up a victory.

Fiers gave up two runs on four hits in six solid innings. He struck out five batters and allowed only one walk. Fiers was tossing a great game before the seventh inning, when he didn't record an out and gave up two runs before being pulled.

Fiers dropped to 5-9 with the loss. He now has a 3.89 ERA with 121 strikeouts and 43 walks in 118 innings this season.


Brewers SP Mike Fiers takes loss despite 10 Ks on Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/24/2015) Brewers starter Mike Fiers had mixed results in his outing against the Diamondbacks on Thursday. Fiers struck out 10 batters, but gave up five runs (four earned) on eight hits over five innings in the 8-3 loss.

Fiers (5-8, 3.94 ERA) gave up an early run on a Yasmany Tomas solo blast in the second inning. He gave up three more in the fourth and another in the fifth before being pulled from the game.

The 10 strikeouts were the most for Fiers since he struck out 12 in a start on May 2. Fiers owns a 2.84 ERA over his last five starts, but has just two wins over that stretch. 


Report: Blue Jays show interest in Brewers SP Mike Fiers


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/20/2015) The Blue Jays are showing interest in Brewers starting pitcher Mike Fiers as the trade deadline looms closer, sources are telling Fox Sports.

A deal is not close between the two clubs, because the Brewers are not especially motivated to Fiers, who has a 2.18 ERA with 24 strikeouts over his last five starts.


Brewers' Mike Fiers opens second half with solid effort vs. Pirates


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/17/2015) Brewers right-hander Mike Fiers was brilliant against the Pirates on Friday. Fiers went seven innings, allowing one run on three hits. He walked one and struck out seven, needing just 89 pitches in the 4-1 victory.

Fiers (5-7) lowered his ERA to 3.79 with the strong effort. The only run he allowed was a solo home run by Jung Ho Kang in the seventh inning. Otherwise, he did a fine job of keeping a hot Pirates team in check.

Fiers owns a 2.18 ERA and 24 strikeouts over his last five starts.


Lousy fourth dooms Brewers SP Mike Fiers to poor outing


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2015) At best, the stat line posted by Brewers starter Mike Fiers on Wednesday was interesting. At worst, it was a mess.

In six innings, Fiers allowed four runs on four hits with four walks and four strikeouts. Interesting indeed - and it did not even result in a loss. His offense came back in the eighth to take the lead and give him a no-decision he probably didn't deserve.

Fiers was actually fine aside from a brutal third in which he gave up a three-run homer to Cameron Maybin and a solo job to Kelly Johnson two batters later. His own throwing error contributed to the bad inning, during which he was forced to face eight Braves.

He was due for a dud. Fiers had allowed just three runs over his previous three starts covering 20 innings.


Brewers SP Mike Fiers fires seven shutout innings in win on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/3/2015) Brewers starter Mike Fiers was excellent in his outing against the Reds on Friday. Fiers twirled seven shutout innings, allowing just three hits and two walks while striking out two. Fiers threw 113 pitches, with 72 going for strikes, as his ERA was lowered to 3.83.

"He was excellent, the last two starts have been really, really good and tonight was probably his best one," Brewers manager Craig Counsell said, per MLB.com. "He was just in control the whole time. They never really had a threat against him. … It was a night that the bullpen needed rest and so it was in that sense exactly what we needed."

Fiers improved his record to 4-7 in what was his best start of the season so far. Fiers has been on fire lately, allowing three earned runs and 11 hits over 20 innings in his last three starts.

"I'm just getting into a groove," Fiers said. "Really attacking guys and not walking as many as I did earlier in the season. Just keeping myself out of those bad situations that I [was] putting myself in. Making them earn their way on and limiting the mistakes." 


Brewers P Mike Fiers holds Twins to 1 earned run in win


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/28/2015) Brewers pitcher Mike Fiers only allowed one earned run in a no-decision during Sunday afternoon's 5-3 win over the Twins. 

Fiers went seven innings, surrendered four hits, walked three batters and struck out four. Fiers has now posted two consecutive no-decisions that resulted in team wins. Will Smith recorded the win and improved to 4-0. 

Fiers' ERA for the season is now 4.14. 


Brewers SP Mike Fiers receives no-decision in Tuesday's win


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2015) Despite producing a quality start Tuesday, Brewers pitcher Mike Fiers received a no-decision for his effort during Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Mets.

Fiers allowed two runs on four hits over six innings of work. He struck out seven and walked two during the outing. His biggest mistake was giving up a solo home run to Curtis Granderson in the third inning. He now has a 4.39 ERA.

Fiers has earned a quality start in three of his last five starts. His next expected start is scheduled for Sunday against the Twins.


Brewers P Mike Fiers gives up 6 runs against Royals


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Fiers went five innings and gave up eight hits and three walks while striking out two batters. The six runs were the most Fiers has allowed in a single game this year. Fiers now has an ERA of 4.50 this season. 

His next start is projected for June 23 against the Mets. 


Brewers SP Mike Fiers goes seven strong in win on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/12/2015) Brewers right-hander Mike Fiers posted his best start of the year in Friday's win over the Nationals. Fiers went a season-high seven innings, allowing three runs on five hits. He walked three and struck out eight, picking up his third victory of the season.

In the second inning, Fiers served up a solo home run to Bryce Harper, who also picked up an RBI-single in the fourth. Fiers then gave up another solo blast, this one to Tyler Moore in the seventh inning, accounting for all of the runs scored against him on Friday.

Fiers (3-6, 4.04 ERA) will make his next start on Wednesday against the Royals in Kansas City.


Brewers' Mike Fiers pulled in fifth inning Sunday vs. Twins


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2015) Brewers pitcher Mike Fiers failed to complete five innings in Sunday's loss, giving up two earned runs on seven hits and three walks in 4 1/3 innings while striking out three in his team's 2-0 shutout against the Twins.

Fiers (2-6) pitched a clean first inning but opened the second with a walk and followed the free pass by allowing a double and a triple to bring two runs home. He was then able to record three straight groundouts and strand the runner on third, and he was able to keep the opposition off the scoreboard before being removed with the bases loaded and one out in the fourth inning. Neal Cotts came in and struck out the first two batters he faced to keep Fiers from accruing any more earned runs in the short outing.

Fiers owns a 4.06 ERA and 72:22 K:BB ratio in 62 innings. He's slated to face the Nationals on Friday.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

This marked the first time all season that Fiers went through a game without giving up a run. He struck out six, walked two and gave up four hits. This game dropped his ERA from 4.53 to 4.06. 

"Playing against St. Louis, in our division, one of the best teams, it just shows you we can play with these guys any night," Fiers said, via MLB.com. "That should be another confidence booster for us. We should take that and roll with it."

Fiers picked up his second win of the season and now has a record of 2-5. 

His next start is projected for Sunday against the Twins.

Brewers SP Mike Fiers goes five innings on short rest Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

"That's what I was thinking: Get five good innings from him," manager Craig Counsell said to MLB.com. "He gave us a chance. He kept us in the game."

The only damage to Fiers was a two-run home run by Joe Panik in the fifth inning. Fiers lowered his ERA a tick to 4.53 and, assuming he stays on normal rest, will make his next start Tuesday in St. Louis.


Brewers SP Mike Fiers to start on short rest Wednesday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2015) With pitcher Wily Peralta not able to make his start Wednesday, the Brewers will turn to pitcher Mike Fiers to start Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks, the team announced.

Fiers will start on three-days rest for the third time in his career. Fiers is 1-4 with a 4.63 ERA in nine starts this season.

"I don't think it is a big deal for me," Fiers said, per The Journal Sentinel. "I didn't throw as many pitches as I usually do in a start [last time out]. I don't think it is any more stressful than a regular start. I'm fine with it. The team needs me to go. I'll be ready to go."


Brewers pitcher Mike Fiers strikes out five in no-decision on Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2015) Brewers pitcher Mike Fiers allowed two runs on seven hits in five innings of work in Milwaukee's 3-2 loss to the Braves on Saturday in 11 innings, but did not factor into a decision.

Fiers had just one bad inning in the fifth when he allowed three doubles in four at-bats, leading to two runs. After issuing an intentional walk, Fiers finished off his final inning of work by getting Jonny Gomes to pop out.

"I definitely did [give the team a chance to win]," Fiers said to MLB.com. "No one's been hitting that guy [Miller] for a month now, so it was good to get on the board early and pitch with a lead early on. It just helped me a lot knowing I could go right after those guys and make pitches and make them put it in play."

Fiers, who remains 1-4, lowered his ERA to 4.63 in 46 1/3 innings of work this season. He will look to get back on track on Friday against the Diamondbacks.
