Jeff Samardzija remained winless this season after he allowed four runs (two earned) on six hits and three walks with six strikeouts over just five innings against the Brewers on Friday.

Samardzija had thrown 15 consecutive scoreless innings over his first two starts in May, but the Brewers jumped all over him from the onset in this one as they plated two runs in the first and another two in the second. Shark settled down and held the Brewers scoreless over the next three frames, but by the end of the fifth, he had already thrown 99 pitches (61 strikes). The Brewers did a good job of laying off some close pitches and Samardzija just couldn't seem to get ahead of any of the hitters. His pitching line wasn't terrible for fantasy owners, but we'll all have to wait until next week against the Yankees to see if he can get his first win of the 2014 season.
