Just updating a recent post in which we acknowledged that Bronson Arroyo has been DEALING as of late …
Monday night: 7 innings, 6 hits and 1 run with no walks and 6 strikeouts. And a win!!!!
That’s his 10th consecutive quality start. Go all the way back to July 22 for an Arroyo start in which he allowed more than 3 runs. (But he’s only gotten three wins during that stretch.)
In his six starts in August, he posted a 1.99 ERA (fifth best in the majors for the month). So far in September he’s pitched 21 innings and allowed 4 runs (1.71 ERA).
His 2.33 ERA since the All-Star Break is fourth best in the majors. If he keeps it up for another start or two AND if it was the first half of the season instead of the second half, he’d be an All-Star.
