Roark (13-9) allowed two runs on four hits and a walk while striking out seven through six innings during Thursday's win over Atlanta. Roark is stringing together a strong second half and entered Thursday's outing with a 3.19 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 9.7 K/9 through his past 10 starts. Those numbers only improved after this outing, and with his current form in mind, Roark checks out as a go-to option moving forward. He lines up to face the Braves at SunTrust Park in his next start.
Roark (12-9) allowed three runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out six batters through six innings during Thursday's win over Philadelphia. Roark has settled into a nice groove and entered this outing with a rock-solid 3.52 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 9.1 K/9 over his previous 10 starts. It was more of the same against Philadelphia on Thursday, and he projects to remain a solid option over the finals weeks of the season. Roark lines up to make his next start at home against the Braves.
Roark (11-8) allowed three earned runs on five hits across six innings earning the win in the Nationals' 5-4 triumph over the Mets on Sunday. He struck out nine and didn't issue a walk in the second game of a doubleheader. Despite a decent record, Roark's ERA sits at 4.62 to go with a 1.34 WHIP -- which are markedly worse than his career marks of 3.34 and 1.19 -- so owners should be thankful he pitches behind one of baseball's most prolific offenses. The 30-year-old is scheduled to take on the Brewers in his next start Friday.
Roark (10-8) picked up the win against the Astros on Tuesday, allowing three runs (two earned) on six hits and a walk over 5.2 innings while striking out seven. The right-hander fell one out shy of his fourth straight quality start and 13th of the year. Roark has turned his season around since the All-Star break, posting a 3.14 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 42:19 K:BB in his last 43 innings, and he'll look to continue that momentum Sunday in one game of a home doubleheader against the Mets.
Roark (9-8) was the losing pitcher in Wednesday's game against the Angels. He allowed three runs on four hits and two walks while striking out three over seven innings. He was cruising early, facing just two over the minimum through four innings, but home runs in the fifth and sixth ultimately sent Roark to his eighth loss of the season. The right-hander has allowed five hits or fewer in each of his last eight appearances, but Roark has almost as many walks as strikeouts over his last three starts (11:10 K:BB), and up next is a tough matchup at Houston.
