Rays pitcher Chris Archer strikes out nine in losing effort Tuesday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Rays pitcher Chris Archer allowed just one unearned run on seven hits in 5 2/3 innings of work in Tampa Bay's 1-0 loss to the Red Sox Tuesday.

Archer's only blemish came in the third inning when he put two men out for Dustin Pedroia. Archer allowed Pedroia to reach safely on a fielder's choice, but the run scored on a throwing error by Ryan Brett.

Archer added nine strikeouts and just one walk in his 106 pitches, 72 going for strikes, keeping his ERA at a lowly 1.07 in four starts. He will look to get back in the win column Sunday against the Blue Jays.

Rays' Chris Archer yet to top 85 pitches in first two starts
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rays pitcher Chris Archer has thrown 85 and 84 pitches, respectively in his first two starts of the year, and he said Wednesday that his usage has been "surprising," the Tampa Tribune reports.

"It’s been surprising, for sure," Archer said. "But, hopefully, in September that leash is the longest and that’s how I’m taking it. Let’s conserve a little bit now beyond a quality outing by my standards and then whenever it’s time to really help out the team down the stretch, I’ll be slightly fresher than I would be if I threw 115 this early."

Archer is set to take the mound for the third time Thursday against the Blue Jays.

"Believe me, we want Arch to go a long way, too," Cash said. "Because if he’s throwing 100 pitches, he’s pitching really well."

Archer came out after 5 2/3 innings on Opening Day, something that Cash attributed mostly to him pitching just two innings in his final spring start. He then tossed seven scoreless innings in his second start, but Cash said he wanted the warmed Kevin Jepsen to get in the game. Archer said he understood the extenuating circumstances.

"But I’m ready to go 120 pitches every single night," he said. "I know they may not allow that. The game dictates that. But I’m ready for it. I mentally and physically prepare myself. I have almost two years in the big leagues. I’m ready for the workload, especially in this time where we’re relying on this bullpen heavily. If they know one or two of us can go 110, 115, 120, maybe that’s in six or seven innings, maybe it’s eight or nine, if they know they can do that with us, it relieves the relievers a little bit."

Rays pitcher Chris Archer strikes out five in win Saturday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Rays pitcher Chris Archer went seven shutout innings in Saturday's 2-0 win over the Marlins. Archer, who earned his first win of the season, allowed just one hit with five strikeouts and one walk in the contest. 

"Everything felt great, and whenever you are locating your fastball, it makes your secondary stuff twice as good," Archer said to MLB.com.

The two baserunners he allowed did not get past second base. He also lowered his ERA to 2.13 on the year.

"Can't say enough about Arch," Rays manager Kevin Cash said. "The way he threw the ball. And what was probably the most impressive about his outing, he did have a little 8-10 pitch glitch there where he lost it. And he was able to regain it and control himself. Really picked us up big time today."

He will look to keep rolling Thursday against the Blue Jays.
