Godley (15-11) allowed three earned runs on five hits and two walks while striking out five across six innings to earn the win Saturday against the Padres. Godley faced little resistance from the Padres until the fourth inning, when all three of his earned runs crossed the plate. Otherwise, he worked efficiently, generating nine groundouts and allowing only one extra-base hit. After an inconsistent season, Godley will end his campaign on a strong note, notching his first quality start in his last four outings.
Godley (14-11) took the loss against the Rockies on Sunday, giving up two earned runs on six hits over five innings, striking out five and walking three in Arizona's 2-0 defeat. The right-hander had a solid outing against a tough Colorado lineup, but he was outdueled by Colorado starter Kyle Freeland, forcing him to settle for his 11th loss of the season and fifth in his last six starts. Overall, it's been an erratic season ratio-wise for Godley, who has a 4.75 ERA and a 1.46 WHIP. He has, however, remained a solid source of strikeouts with 180 over 172.1 innings.
Godley (14-10) took the loss Saturday, coughing up five runs (four earned) on seven hits and six walks over 3.2 innings while striking out only one as the Astros downed the Diamondbacks 10-4. He threw only 47 of 89 pitches for strikes, and Godley has now lost four of his last six starts while posting an ugly 7.42 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 32:15 K:BB over 30.1 innings during that stretch. While his strikeouts give him a decent floor for his fantasy value, Godley's late-season swoon has left him with a 4.79 ERA heading into Friday's home start against the Rockies.
The Diamondbacks activated Godley from the paternity list ahead of his scheduled start Monday against the Rockies. The transaction was actually made official Friday after Godley was away from the team for the maximum three days following the birth of his child. The Diamondbacks still elected to push him back a day in the pitching schedule, denying Godley a home matchup with the Braves and instead forcing him to return to action at unforgiving Coors Field. Godley will at least benefit from a two-start week, with his second turn expected to come Saturday in Houston.
Godley (personal) will make his next start Monday against the Rockies at Coors Field, Jack Magruder of The Sports Xchange reports. Godley was originally scheduled to start Sunday's series finale against the Braves, but he'll swap places in the rotation with Robbie Ray, who will take the mound on normal rest thanks to an off day Thursday. The 28-year-old Godley was placed on the paternity list Tuesday, which likely factored into the decision.
