The struggles continued, as he allowed individual runs to score in the third, fourth and fifth innings. 

DeSclafani took a step backwards with this performance. He came into the game with a 2.81 ERA over his previous five starts.

Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani posts poor outing vs. Indians


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/18/2015) Reds rookie right-hander Anthony DeSclafani struggled in his start against the Indians on Saturday. DeSclafani gave up six runs on eight hits over four innings. He struck out four and did not walk a batter.

DeSclafani, who dropped to 5-7 with the 9-4 loss, got into early trouble when he allowed a three-run home run to Michael Brantley in the first inning. Brandon Moss also took the youngster deep with a two-run shot in the third inning.

"I just wasn't executing any pitches," DeSclafani said, per MLB.com. "It wasn't the start I was hoping to have, especially coming out of the All-Star break and opening the second half. I wasn't good tonight, didn't put guys away when I had to. To Moss, I had him down 0-2, and I need to make a better pitch. I just didn't give my team a chance to win, that falls on me. I have to do a better job."

DeSclafani hadn't pitched since July 6, as he had his most recent turn in the rotation skipped due to tightness in his glute muscle. Saturday's poor outing lifted DeSclafani's ERA to 3.99. This is the second time in his last three starts that he allowed six runs. He hasn't picked up a win since June 9.

Reds' Iglesias to start for injured DeSclafani on Saturday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2015) Reds starting pitcher Raisel Iglesias will start Saturday against the Marlins in place of Anthony DeSclafani, who was scratched due to a glute strain he dealt with in his last start, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.

"That glute tightness just hasn't subsided to the point where we want it to," manager Bryan Price said, per MLB.com. "He can pitch -- it's not something that would prevent him from pitching -- it's just that we'd like him to be back to 100 percent coming out of the All-Star break."

Reds pitcher Anthony DeSclafani trying to work out the kinks


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2015) Reds pitcher Anthony DeSclafani has fallen off from his strong start. DeSclafani is 0-4 with a 6.38 ERA in his last five starts of the season. He has also walked 17 batters in his last 24 innings, something he knows  will have to be fixed quickly, according to MLB.com.

"It's not going my way now, but I've got to keep working at it and trying to make adjustments and try to catch a rhythm in the next few starts," DeSclafani said.

Manager Bryan Price thinks getting him and the rest of the pitching staff some rest will help.

"We ran guys out there on fumes. That's the importance of good starting pitching, the guys that typically come in behind you are fresh and rested," Price said. "Our good fortune is we haven't seen a lot of that out of the rotation three games in a row -- five innings or less. ... I hope not to see it again or else we'll have a bullpen that's on fumes. I anticipate a lot better pitching from the rotation."
