5/12 Extra bases
Scott Feldman takes the mound on Sunday in the Cubs’ series finale against the Nationals. Feldman is the only Cubs starter to record a decision in every start this season. He began with three losses and has followed up with three wins. The right-hander is one of 10 pitchers in baseball to make at least six starts and record a decision in every outing.
In his first three starts, Feldman was 0-3 with a 4.50 ERA (7 ER/14 IP), and in his last three, he is 3-0 with a 1.59 ERA (4 ER/22 2/3 IP). The last three include his first complete game May 1 against the Padres.
