The game got a very late start after being delayed more than three hours due to rain and lightning, and Roark is probably wishing it had just been postponed entirely. The right-hander has now served up six homers in his last two starts and 11 in his last seven, leading to a 5.09 ERA over that stretch, after managing to keep the ball in the yard completely in his six trips to the mound before that. Roark will try to turn things around in his next start Thursday, at home against the Cards.

While he's managed to keep the ball in the yard fairly effectively for much of the season, his HR/9 jumped to 1.5 across 29.1 June innings. This start didn't instill much confidence he's solved his issues, yet he still has a 3.51 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 92 strikeouts across 92.1 innings for the season. This was Roark's final scheduled start prior to the All-Star break.

He also induced plenty of weak contact during his outing, with the only real damage against him coming on a Christian Yelich solo home run in the fourth inning.

Roark (3-1) allowed three hits and two walks while striking out three across six scoreless innings to earn the win Thursday against Oakland.
Roark held Oakland to only one extra-base hit and relied on double plays to get out of the few jams he faced.

After failing to surpass 5.1 innings in his first six starts of the season, Roark has combined to throw 12.2 frames across his last two outings thanks to more efficient pitching. He'll look to keep that positive trend going in his next start, likely to come at home against the Cubs on Wednesday.

Roark (1-0) got the win against the Padres on Thursday, giving up one earned run on four hits over 5.1 innings, striking out five and walking two as the Reds topped San Diego 4-1.
It was a solid effort from the veteran right-hander, as Roark managed to hold the Padres to just a single run before exiting the contest after throwing 86 pitches. He now owns a solid 3.60 ERA through his first four starts, although his 1.55 WHIP and .295 opponent batting average suggest he's perhaps a bit fortunate to not be sporting a higher ERA.

Milwaukee jumped on Roark for three runs in the top of the first inning, and while he avoided any further damage, the right-hander was far from sharp. He threw 56 of 96 pitches for strikes, and about the only positive from the performance is that he didn't give up a homer. Roark will look for a better result in his next start, Saturday in Pittsburgh.
Roark struggled a little bit in Wednesday's spring training start against the Rangers, yet emerged through 5.1 innings allowing just one run on five hits and two walks, striking out five, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. "I felt good. Today was a grinder one," Roark said. "I wasn't really as sharp as I was last time. You're not going to be that sharp every time. You'd like to be though. ... In the second, third and fourth inning, the leadoff guy was on. Two leadoff doubles in the second and third. I felt like I managed to control the damage and go out with one run."
Roark will have one more exhibition start -- Monday in Atlanta -- before starting Sunday, March 31 in the third game of the season against the Pirates.
