Archer (8-7) allowed three runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out eight over 5.1 innings to take the loss Saturday against the Indians. Archer gave up single runs in the first, third and sixth innings, but the offense was unable to provide him any support, and as a result, he dropped his seventh decision of the season. He continues to be an excellent source of strikeouts, and he's consistently kept his ERA just below 4.00 over the past month and a half. He'll make his next start Thursday against the Blue Jays.
Archer (8-6) tossed six innings of one-run ball with three hits, two walks and seven strikeouts during Sunday's 2-1 win over the Brewers. Archer was in command of his repertoire Sunday as he mowed down Brewers hitters in the first five frames, allowing just one walk and one hit in the process. His only real mistake came on the solo shot he allowed to Orlando Arcia in the sixth inning which spoiled the ace's shot at earning the win. Nonetheless, it was an encouraging outing for Archer, who had given up a combined seven earned runs over his previous two starts against the Astros and Yankees. He'll take a 3.80 ERA into his upcoming scheduled start against the Indians on Saturday.
Archer (8-6) gave up four earned runs on six hits over six-plus innings in Tuesday's 6-4 win over the Astros. He struck out five. The hard-throwing right-hander was mostly cruising until the fifth, when Carlos Beltran and Alex Bregman got to him for solo home runs. The pair would be responsible for the other two runs on his ledger as well, but the early lead the Rays had built against Mike Fiers was enough to give Archer his first victory since July 4. His strikeout total was his lowest since June 29, as he notched just seven swinging strikes overall. While he continues to pitch to plenty of contact, his 1.24 WHIP is identical to last season's, while his current 3.89 ERA is a modest improvement on last year's 4.02. He'll look to string together consecutive victories for the first time since late June when he takes on the Brewers next Sunday.
Archer allowed three runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out 10 batters through six innings during Thursday's loss to the Yankees. He didn't factor into the decision. Archer has now allowed just six earned runs over 19 innings through his three starts following the All-Star break. He continues to pile up strikeouts in bunches and sports a solid 3.80 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 11.2 K/9 for the year. Archer's punchout upside also makes him a matchup-proof option in the majority of settings. He lines up for a difficult matchup against the Astros at Minute Maid Park in his next start.
Archer (7-6) allowed four runs (one earned) on four hits and one walk while striking out 11 across seven innings to take the loss Saturday against the Rangers. Archer entered the sixth inning with a 3-1 lead, but his defense let him down, allowing the Rangers to take the lead and causing him to drop his sixth decision of the year. He's fanned at least eight batters in each of his June and July starts while posting a respectable 3.77 ERA on the year, making him a fairly reliable fantasy option. He'll make his next start Thursday against the Yankees.
