Widener improved to 2-1 after limiting the Rockies to one run over five innings Sunday in Arizona's 8-4 victory. He allowed one hit and issued five walks while striking out five.
A five-walk start usually spells disaster for a pitcher at Coors Field, but Widener was able to skirt damage on balls in play to help Arizona ends its seven-game losing streak in Colorado. Though he's been able to bring his season ERA down to 4.34 after turning in back-to-back five-inning, one-run outings, Widener's .095 BABIP, 4.9 K-BB% and 94.3 percent strand rate between those starts are all metrics that suggest he benefited from some incredible good fortune. Fantasy managers shouldn't bet on Widener coming out of his upcoming start next weekend in Philadelphia unscathed.
