Conley (4-4) threw eight shutout innings, allowing just four hits, striking out four and walking one in a 3-0 victory over the Braves on Wednesday afternoon.
The 26-year-old lefty threw 78 of his 114 pitches for strikes and induced 17 swing-and-misses. He has allowed just one run and five hits in his last 13.2 innings. Conley has had one poor start in June, but he still has, by far, his best ERA in any month in June with a 2.59 ERA. His next start will be Tuesday against the Tigers.
Conley allowed one run on one hit and five walks while striking out five over 5.2 innings, but received no decision Friday against the Rockies.
Conley struggled with control and was pulled after throwing 109 pitches. Had he finished the sixth inning, he would've been in line for the victory, as the Marlins took the lead in the bottom of the frame. He's now failed to post a quality start in four of his last six outings, and his ERA is at 3.94. He'll make his next start Wednesday against the Braves.
Conley allowed five runs on 11 hits and one walk in five innings during Sunday's loss to the Diamondbacks. He struck out just two.
Conley struck out 17 batters and allowed just three runs in 12.2 innings prior to Sunday's start, but he was bashed by a strong Arizona lineup that is notably tough against lefties. The loss bumped Conley's ERA up to 4.13 for the season, and things will not get any easier in his next start, as he will take on an equally prolific Rockies offense at home on Saturday.
Conley allowed three runs on five hits and a walk and struck out eight over 6.2 innings in a no-decision Tuesday against the Twins.
Conley has found his strikeout groove in June, with 17 strikeouts in just 13.2 innings over his first two starts of the month. He hadn't struck out more than six batters in a start since April 29 against Milwaukee prior to his last time out and, not coincidentally, he managed just one quality start in five outings in May. Conley now has consecutive quality starts to open June. He has 23 swinging strikes in those two starts, including 10 on Tuesday, a good sign he can keep this streak going.
Conley threw six scoreless frames against Pittsburgh on Wednesday, allowing only two hits and three walks while fanning nine. He didn't factor in the decision.
The nine strikeouts tied a season-high mark for the 26-year-old lefty, and he's started June in the best way possible. Conley struggled massively during May - a month in which he posted a 4.68 ERA - but perhaps an outing like this one is exactly what he needs to get back on track. He will try to keep it going in his next start against the Twins on Tuesday.
