Jeff Samardzija allowed three runs (one earned) on six hits and two walks with seven strikeouts over seven innings against the Reds on Friday.

Shark threw his fourth consecutive quality start and has now allowed just four earned runs over 28 innings (1.29 ERA) this season. While he's kept the opposition off-balance and off the scoreboard, Samardzija is not posting his usual strikeout totals. In fact, he's only got a 22:7 K:BB which is down nearly two strikeouts per game from his career average. He'll look to fix that when he faces a free-swinging Arizona team his next time out.
