Takes loss against Nats
PPittsburgh Pirates
June 15, 2021
Holmes (1-2) allowed one run on one hit in Monday's 3-2 loss to Washington. He struck out two batters.
ANALYSIS
The right-hander served up an eighth-inning homer to Kyle Schwarber that proved to be the difference in a one-run game. It's encouraging that Holmes is being used in more high-leverage situations, but he's given up at least one earned run in each of his last three outings.
