Gray didn't factor into the decision in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Braves, allowing three runs on five hits and a walk over seven innings while striking out nine.
The right-hander has now delivered quality starts in five of six outings since returning to the Rockies' rotation just before the All-Star break, posting a 2.55 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 38:9 K:BB in 42.1 innings over that stretch. Gray will look to maintain his dominant form in his next start Wednesday at home against the Padres.
Gray allowed one run on four hits and two walks across eight innings in a no-decision Sunday against the Brewers. He struck out eight.
Gray was outstanding in this one, throwing 67 percent of his pitches for strikes as he scattered baserunners throughout the afternoon. The only real damage against his ledger came on a solo home run in the second inning, and he was only denied a win by a late bullpen collapse before his team won in extra innings. Gray still has a disappointing 4.73 ERA on the season, but this stellar outing brings his mark to 1.52 as he's now delivered four quality starts in as many outings. He'll look to build off one of his finest performances of the season next weekend against the Dodgers.
Gray (9-7) allowed three runs (two earned) on four hits in a win over the Cardinals on Tuesday, striking out five and walking two in 7.1 innings.
The only extra-base hit Gray allowed was a leadoff home run by Matt Carpenter, and he threw 64 of 92 pitches for strikes the rest of the way. Gray has now thrown three consecutive quality starts and has not taken a loss in his last six starts. He's still riding a high 4.99 ERA but has an excellent 136:34 K:BB in 113.2 innings. The righty will next face off against the Brewers in a start in Milwaukee.
Gray allowed two runs (one earned) on two walks and a hit while striking out six over seven innings in Wednesday's win over the Astros. He did not factor into the decision.
Gray was terrific in this one, as the only hit he allowed was a Jose Altuve double in the fourth inning. An error and a catchers interference in the frame led to a pair of runs coming around to score, and the Colorado bats didn't provide much in the way of run support. Nevertheless, it was another very sharp outing for the 26-year-old and it appears his brief demotion back to the minors has had the intended effect. In two starts since being called back up, Gray has allowed just two earned runs with 12 strikeouts versus three walks over 14.1 innings. He'll take a 5.16 ERA into Tuesday's clash against the Cardinals.
Gray had been a candidate to take the hill for the series finale in Arizona on Sunday, but the Rockies ultimately decided to bring Antonio Senzatela off the 10-day disabled list to start that contest after Senzatela completed a 35-pitch bullpen session Friday without issue. It's a tough break for Gray, who will now miss out on a start in a more suppressed offensive environment in Arizona and exchange it for a matchup at altitude against one of the top offenses in the majors. Fantasy owners who scooped Gray up after he tossed 7.1 innings of one-run ball at home against the Mariners in his return to the big leagues July 14 may thus want to keep the right-hander on the bench for the time being.
