Chris Capuano Looks For Rebound In Series Finale

Chris Capuano has allowed 12 runs in 11 innings in his last two starts.

Chris Capuano has struggled over the last two months or so, but the left-hander looks to turn things around in the Dodgers' series finale on Sunday afternoon against the Diamondbacks at Dodger Stadium.

Capuano is 2-7 with a 5.20 ERA in his last 10 starts, but there have been ebbs and flows even within that stretch. After never allowing more than four earned runs in any of his first 17 starts of the season, Capuano did it three times in his final five starts of July, allowing 23 total runs in 29 innings during that span.

But then he turned in three quality starts in a row, going at least seven innings each time, including taking a no-hitter into the seventh inning in Miami. But Capuano's last two starts have gone back the other way, as he allowed six runs in each contest.

Capuano is the only Dodgers starter this season to allow six or more runs in back-to-back starts. Since 2000, there have only been four Dodgers starters with longer such streaks: Odalis Perez (2006, four straight), Ted Lilly (2011, three straight), Omar Daal (2002, three straight), and Eric Gagne (2001, three straight).

Capuano has faced the Diamondbacks three times this season. He allowed one run in a win on May 21, but has allowed five runs in each of his last two starts against Arizona.

Wade Miley has a 2.51 ERA in nine starts since the All-Star break for the Diamondbacks. Sunday is his fourth start against the Dodgers this year. He allowed one run in wins on May 15 and July 31, and he allowed four runs in a loss on July 5.
