      Rays SP Chris Archer gets torched in loss to Blue Jays

      Rays starter Chris Archer got hammered by the Blue Jays on Saturday, coughing up nine runs on 10 hits and five walks over 3 2/3 innings while striking out three. The Jays launched two homers off him en route to a five-run first inning, setting the tone for a wild 10-8 win for Toronto. Archer will get a shot at revenge next Saturday when the Rays host the Jays in the final game of the regular season.

      Rays SP Chris Archer not at his best in no decision Monday

      Rays starter Chris Archer allowed a run on three hits and five walks in five innings in a no decision Monday against Boston. He struck out three. Archer couldn't get the Red Sox to whiff, as he induced just six swinging strikes and issued a season high five walks despite throwing first-pitch strikes to 16 of the 22 batters he faced. Archer needed 99 pitches to get through the five innings and didn't look his sharpest, but his ERA is still pretty at 2.92.

      Rays SP Chris Archer drops game to Yankees

      Rays starting pitcher Chris Archer (12-12) gave up two runs on four hits in six innings against the Yankees on Wednesday, but took the loss. He struck out seven and walked four. Archer was outdueled by Yankees rookie Luis Severino, who allowed just a single run in his 5 2/3 innings. He wasn't quite as sharp as the quality start would suggest, though, with the four walks plus a wild pitch. Archer looked like a stud in the first half (2.74 ERA, 1.02 WHIP), but has been markedly less dominant in the second half, with a 3.29 ERA and 1.15 WHIP. It's still quality work, but not top-line-starter material, and an uptick in his walk date has been the biggest culprit.

      Rays SP Chris Archer survives shaky start with no-decision

      Rays starter Chris Archer endured a second straight subpar outing--at least by his standards. Archer allowed three runs on five hits over five-plus innings. He walked two and struck out eight, and was left with a no-decision in the 8-4 win over the Red Sox. Archer, who was coming off of a five-run performance his last time out, allowed a run in the first inning but was bailed out when the Rays scored three in the bottom half. Archer started the sixth inning by allowing the first two men to reach. He was lifted from the game, only to watch the bullpen let the Red Sox take the lead later in the inning. But the Rays' offense bailed him out again as they scored five times in the eighth, en route to the win. Despite the two rough outings, Archer still owns a very respectable 2.95 ERA this season.

      Rays SP Chris Archer fires one-hit shutout over Astros on Thursday

      Rays ace Chris Archer was fantastic against the Astros on Thursday night. The electric young right-hander fired a complete-game, one-hit shutout, walking one and striking out 11. He didn't allow his first hit until the fifth inning. The Rays won the game 1-0. This was Archer's first complete-game shutout of the season, and the first one-hitter of his career. He needed just 98 pitches to finish what he started on Thursday. With the dazzling performance, Archer becomes the fourth Rays pitcher to record 200 strikeouts in a season--he finishes Thursday with 205, good for second in the sport.

      Rays' Chris Archer picks up 10th win of the season on Tuesday

      Rays starter Chris Archer was brilliant on Tuesday against the White Sox, outpitching Chris Sale in the 11-3 victory. Archer allowed two runs on six hits over seven innings.

In the four starts since then, Archer has a 1.67 ERA--though he has just one win over that stretch.
