Williamson cruised to an easy win thanks to massive run support, but he still delivered his first quality start since Aug. 29 and first win since Aug. 7.

Williamson allowed only two baserunners through four innings but was tagged by a Jack Suwinski solo homer to lead off the fifth.

Reds' Brandon Williamson: Slated to return Tuesday
Williamson (illness) will return from the COVID-19-related injured list to start Tuesday against the Tigers, Gordon Wittenmyer of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Williamson will have gone exactly two weeks between starts, as he was placed on the COVID-19 list Sept. 2 after making his last appearance for the Reds four days earlier. The left-hander had turned in two straight quality starts before going on the list, but he's been an up-and-down performer this season and might not be ready for a full workload Tuesday....

Reds' Brandon Williamson: Gets no help in loss
Williamson (4-4) allowed five runs (three earned) on six hits and struck out five without walking a batter over six innings, taking the loss Tuesday versus the Giants.

He's at a 4.20 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 87:33 K:BB through 98.2 innings across 19 starts overall. The rookie southpaw is lined up for a home start versus the Cubs over the weekend.... See More ... See Less

All six of the hits against Williamson were singles, and he picked up his fifth quality start of the campaign. The southpaw struck out exactly six batters for the third straight game, and he's pitched well over that stretch despite not picking up any wins, posting a 2.60 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 18:4 K:BB over 17.1 innings. Williamson has had a few blow-ups this season but has been mostly consistent, giving up three or fewer earned runs in 14 of his 18 outings.

Williamson allowed nine hits to Toronto, eight of which were singles, including a string of three consecutive run-scoring base knocks in the fourth inning. The one extra-base hit surrendered by the 25-year-old was a fifth-inning solo homer by Davis Schneider, which gave the Blue Jays a 4-3 lead and proved to be the difference. After a challenging start to his rookie campaign, Williamson has pitched well since the start of July, posting a 3.38 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 47:15 K:BB across 48 innings. He lines up to face Arizona on the road next week.... See More ... See Less

Reds' Brandon Williamson: Punches out nine
Williamson (4-2) allowed one run on three hits over 6.2 innings Monday, striking out nine and earning a win over Miami.
After coughing up a solo shot to Jorge Soler in the first inning, Williamson locked in and dominated the Marlins. Williamson struck out a career-high nine batters while tying his longest MLB outing. He had a slight hiccup against the Cubs in his last start following a dominant July. The 25-year-old posted a 2.45 ERA in five starts last month but yielded five runs in his most recent appearance to kick off August. Williamson will carry a 4.54 ERA into his next outing, which is projected to be in Pittsburgh.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Brandon Williamson: Can't get out of fifth inning
Williamson allowed five runs on four hits and two walks while striking out seven batters in a no-decision against the Cubs on Wednesday.
Williamson got enough early run support to hold a 5-3 lead through four innings, but he allowed two of the first three batters he faced to reach base in the fifth before getting the hook. Both runners came around to score after his departure, marking the first time Williamson has allowed five runs in an outing since he yielded six to the Dodgers on June 7. The southpaw as least managed to contribute seven punchouts in the start Wednesday despite notching just four swings-and-misses. Williamson came out of the All-Star break by picking up two wins and posting a 2.55 ERA over his first three starts, but it's uncertain if he'll hold onto a rotation spot when Hunter Greene (hip) and Nick Lodolo (lower leg) return from the injured list, which is expected to happen later this month. Williamson should have at least a few more starts to prove himself before the Reds need to make that decision.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Brandon Williamson: Escapes with win
Williamson (3-2) allowed two runs on eight hits and four walks while striking out two over 5.2 innings to pick up the win Friday over the Dodgers.
Williamson's 12 baserunners were by far his most in an appearance this season, but he was able to work around the trouble. He finishes July having not allowed more than two runs in any outing, and he gave up just seven runs over 25.2 innings across his five starts for the month. Williamson has a 4.48 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 48:27 K:BB through 64.1 innings through 13 starts this year. He's projected for a road start versus the Cubs next week.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Brandon Williamson: Posts another quality start
Williamson (2-2) earned the win Saturday, allowing one run on three hits and one walk over six innings against the Diamondbacks. He struck out five.
Williamson got off to a red-hot start Saturday, retiring the first nine batters he faced while not allowing a hit until the fifth inning. Though the southpaw had only logged one quality start through his first 10 appearances, he's rattled of back-to-back quality starts to lower his season ERA to 4.60 to go along with a 46:23 K:BB. However, he'll face a challenge in nabbing a third straight quality start considering his next outing is tentatively scheduled to come on the road against the Dodgers.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Brandon Williamson: Takes no-decision in series opener
Williamson didn't factor into the decision Monday, allowing two runs on four hits and three walks while striking out three over six innings in a 4-2 loss to the Giants.
The game was suspended due to rain and thunder that wouldn't stop Monday, so the two teams finished it off before Tuesday's regularly scheduled affair. It was the third time in Williamson's last four starts that rain impacted the game. The left-hander gave up another two home runs, increasing his count allowed to 10 over 52.2 innings (1.7 HR/9). His next outing is tentatively scheduled for Saturday against Arizona.... See More ... See Less
