Godley (1-1) tossed six scoreless innings Friday, allowing five hits and a walk while striking out six, but had to settle for a no-decision in a 4-2 win over the Brewers.
The Diamondbacks bullpen couldn't hold a 1-0 lead once Godley left the game after throwing 84 pitches (51 strikes), costing him a win. The 27-year-old has now delivered four straight quality starts, giving him a 1.99 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 26:11 K:BB through 31.2 big-league innings, and he'll look to keep rolling in his next outing Wednesday in Pittsburgh.
Godley (1-1) allowed three runs on eight hits and one walk across seven innings in Sunday's loss to the Padres. He struck out one.
Godley didn't allow a hit through four innings, but he ran into trouble in the fifth when Ryan Schimpf led off with a home run before four more hits plated another pair. He settled down after that point and retired the final seven batters he faced en route to his third straight quality start. Godley has been quite solid since making his season debut in late April, posting a 2.45 ERA and a sharp 1.05 WHIP through 25.2 innings. One bugaboo through his first four starts has been his 3.51 BB/9, but he did well to limit the walks in this one and will look to do the same in his next start Friday against the Brewers.
Godley allowed a single run on one hit and five walks while striking out seven batters over 6.2 innings during Monday's win over the Mets. He did not factor into the decision.
Through his first two starts of the season, Godley walked just four batters in 12 innings, so it was surprising to see him allow so many free passes Monday. However, it was perhaps more encouraging that he limited the damage and held New York to a single run. The 27-year-old righty has pitched well in his three outings and sports a 1.93 ERA, 3.31 FIP, 0.96 WHIP and 9.2 K/9. If he sticks for another turn through the rotation, Godley lines up for a road start against San Diego this weekend.
Godley will make his next start Monday against the Mets, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.
With Shelby Miller (elbow) shut down for the season after undergoing Tommy John surgery, the Diamondbacks have a permanent need for a fifth starter, and for now, it appears manager Torey Lovullo is content to keep Godley in the rotation as long as his performance warrants it. Godley was highly impressive while making his second start of the season Wednesday against the Tigers, spinning seven innings of one-run ball while giving up four hits and striking out six. With a matchup against an injury-battered Mets squad followed by a second start against an anemic Padres offense at Petco Park later in the week, Godley should make for a decent streaming option in the short term.
Godley (1-0) allowed just one run on four hits and a walk while striking out six over seven innings in Wednesday's 7-1 win over the Tigers.
The 27-year-old has made two spot starts this season and looked good in both, so expect Godley's stay in the majors to be a bit longer this time as the D-backs try to solidify the final spot in their rotation. His next trip to the mound will come Monday at home against the Mets.
