Oct. 8 12:54 AM PT1:54 AM MT2:54 AM CT3:54 AM ET3:54 ET7:54 GMT15:54 12:54 AM MST2:54 AM EST3:24 AM VEN11:54 UAE2:54 AM CT-Robbie Ray fell to 0-1, allowing four runs on four hits and four walks in 4.1 innings, as the Arizona Diamondbacks lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers 8-5 on Saturday. Ray struck out six, ending the game with an 8.31 ERA and 1.85 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: The Diamondbacks needed a big outing out of Ray and instead got a mess of one, as the 15-game winner also hit a batter and uncorked three wild pitches in addition to his four walks. It's quite possibly a sour ending to an otherwise brilliant season for the lefty, who finished third in the NL in strikeouts (218) and fourth in ERA (2.89).

Analysis: He is expected to be available if needed in next Wednesday's NL wild card game.
Sep. 27 11:58 PM PT12:58 AM MT1:58 AM CT2:58 AM ET2:58 ET6:58 GMT14:58 11:58 PM MST1:58 AM EST2:28 AM VEN10:58 UAE1:58 AM CT-Robbie Ray improved to 15-5, allowing two runs - zero earned - on three hits and two walks in 5.0 innings, as the Arizona Diamondbacks defeated the San Francisco Giants 11-4 on Tuesday. Ray struck out five, ending the game with a 2.86 ERA and 1.16 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Torey Lovullo pulled Ray after just 80 pitches with the Diamondbacks sitting on a big lead, but the standout lefty was still able to reward his owners with another productive start. It's likely this was the last regular-season outing of his tremendous 2017 campaign, in which he wrapped up by going 6-0 with a 2.16 ERA while racking up 66 strikeouts over his final seven assignments.
Sep. 21 6:50 AM PT7:50 AM MT8:50 AM CT9:50 AM ET9:50 ET13:50 GMT21:50 6:50 AM MST8:50 AM EST9:20 AM VEN17:50 UAE8:50 AM CT-Ray allowed five runs on five hits and five walks in 4.1 innings as the Arizona Diamondbacks defeated the San Diego Padres 13-7 on Wednesday.

Sep. 16 10:20 AM PT11:20 AM MT12:20 PM CT1:20 PM ET13:20 ET17:20 GMT1:20 10:20 AM MST12:20 PM EST12:50 PM VEN21:20 UAE12:20 PM CT-Robbie Ray improved to 14-5, allowing two runs - one earned - on six hits in 7.0 innings, as the Arizona Diamondbacks defeated the San Francisco Giants 3-2 on Friday. Ray struck out 10, ending the game with a 2.74 ERA and 1.13 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Ray's fourth strikeout in the game gave him 200 for a second consecutive season. It was his fourth straight double-figure strikeout game and 10th of the season. Ray has a 1.39 ERA and won all five starts since coming off the disabled list with a concussion after getting hit by a line drive on July 28. ''It's almost a blessing in disguise, to be able to take that time off and get my mind right, get my body right,'' Ray said.
Sep. 11 10:24 AM PT11:24 AM MT12:24 PM CT1:24 PM ET13:24 ET17:24 GMT1:24 10:24 AM MST12:24 PM EST12:54 PM VEN21:24 UAE12:24 PM CT-Robbie Ray improved to 13-5, allowing two runs on four hits and two walks in 6.0 innings, as the Arizona Diamondbacks defeated the San Diego Padres 3-2 on Sunday.

Analysis: Ray is now 4-0 with a 1.42 ERA and 0.75 WHIP with 45 strikeouts over 25.1 innings in four starts since coming off the DL. He next pitches Friday at San Francisco, where he tossed 6.2 scoreless innings on April 11.
Sep. 5 11:13 AM PT12:13 PM MT1:13 PM CT2:13 PM ET14:13 ET18:13 GMT2:13 11:13 AM MST1:13 PM EST1:43 PM VEN22:13 UAE1:13 PM CT-Robbie Ray improved to 12-5, allowing three hits over 7.2 scoreless innings, as the Arizona Diamondbacks defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers 13-0 on Monday. Ray struck out 14, ending the game with a 2.80 ERA and 1.15 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: The left-hander improved to 7-1 on the road. His strikeouts were the most by a D-backs pitcher since Randy Johnson had 15 against the Dodgers on Aug. 31, 2004. Ray became the first pitcher in major league history to have four games with 10 or more strikeouts against the Dodgers in a single season.
Aug. 31 12:45 AM PT1:45 AM MT2:45 AM CT3:45 AM ET3:45 ET7:45 GMT15:45 12:45 AM MST2:45 AM EST3:15 AM VEN11:45 UAE2:45 AM CT-Robbie Ray improved to 11-5, allowing one run on four hits and two walks in 6.2 innings, as the Arizona Diamondbacks defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-4 on Wednesday. Ray struck out 10, ending the game with a 2.97 ERA and 1.20 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: After striking out nine while holding the Mets to a run and two hits through five innings to win his return from the DL last Thursday, Ray followed up with his seventh double-digit strikeout effort of the season. Now 2-0 with a 3.00 ERA in four meetings with Los Angeles this season, the lefty is set to face the Dodgers again Monday.
Aug. 24 1:35 PM PT2:35 PM MT3:35 PM CT4:35 PM ET16:35 ET20:35 GMT4:35 1:35 PM MST3:35 PM EST4:05 PM VEN0:35 UAE (+1)3:35 PM CT-Pitching for the first time since being hit in the head with a line drive last month, Ray improved to 10-5, allowing one run on two hits and two walks in 5.0 innings, as the Diamondbacks defeated the Mets 3-2 on Thursday. Ray struck out nine, ending the game with a 3.06 ERA and 1.21 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Reinstated from the DL prior to the game, Ray struck out the side in the first and held the Mets hitless for three innings. The All-Star left-hander is 2-0 with a 0.82 ERA in four starts against the Mets. He next takes the ball Wednesday at home against the Dodgers, and he has yielded five runs in each of his last two home starts against them.
July 29 1:38 PM PT2:38 PM MT3:38 PM CT4:38 PM ET16:38 ET20:38 GMT4:38 1:38 PM MST3:38 PM EST4:08 PM VEN0:38 UAE (+1)3:38 PM CT-Ray (concussion) will make his return to the Diamondbacks' rotation Thursday against the Mets.
Analysis: Ray has been out since being struck in the head by a line drive at St. Louis on July 28. He threw a 50-pitch simulated game last weekend before striking out 11 in 4 2/3 innings in a rehab start for Class A Visalia on Thursday.

Ray struck out two, ending the game with a 3.11 ERA and 1.23 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Ray was knocked out in the second when Luke Voit's 108.1 mph liner struck him in the back of the head. After about two minutes, Ray was able to sit up. He was carted off the field and taken to a hospital, where three sutures were put into his head to close the wound. Ray returned to the team hotel after showering in the visitors' locker room.
July 28 5:58 PM PT6:58 PM MT7:58 PM CT8:58 PM ET20:58 ET0:58 GMT8:58 5:58 PM MST7:58 PM EST8:28 PM VEN4:58 UAE (+1)7:58 PM CT-A line drive by St. Louis first baseman Luke Voit hit Ray in the head in the second inning of Friday night's game against St. Louis. Ray dropped flat on the mound. Third baseman Daniel Descalso caught the ball in the air in foul territory for an out. His teammates quickly ran to his side. Ray was helped up and then driven off the field on a cart for examination.
Analysis: Ray threw 1 2/3 innings, allowing one hit, one walk and two strikeouts.
July 24 7:27 AM PT8:27 AM MT9:27 AM CT10:27 AM ET10:27 ET14:27 GMT22:27 7:27 AM MST9:27 AM EST9:57 AM VEN18:27 UAE9:27 AM CT-Robbie Ray fell to 9-5, allowing five runs - four earned - on six hits and two walks in 5.0 innings, as the Arizona Diamondbacks lost to the Washington Nationals 6-2 on Sunday.

July 19 7:38 AM PT8:38 AM MT9:38 AM CT10:38 AM ET10:38 ET14:38 GMT22:38 7:38 AM MST9:38 AM EST10:08 AM VEN18:38 UAE9:38 AM CT-Robbie Ray improved to 9-4, allowing two runs on four hits and three walks in 6.0 innings, as the Arizona Diamondbacks defeated the Cincinnati Reds 11-2 on Tuesday. Ray struck out four, ending the game with a 2.97 ERA and 1.21 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Ray's strikeout of Scott Schebler in the fourth inning was the 500th strikeout of Ray's career. He is the 10th active pitcher and third left-hander to reach 500 strikeouts in 82 or fewer games. Walks have again become somewhat of an issue for Ray of late, though. He has 24 in his last six starts.
July 7 9:17 AM PT10:17 AM MT11:17 AM CT12:17 PM ET12:17 ET16:17 GMT0:17 9:17 AM MST11:17 AM EST11:47 AM VEN20:17 UAE11:17 AM CT-Robbie Ray allowed one run on five hits and four walks in 6.0 innings as the Arizona Diamondbacks lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-4 on Thursday. Ray struck out 13, ending the game with a 2.97 ERA and 1.22 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: The first-time All-Star tied a career high with his 13 Ks, reaching double digits for the sixth time this season. He's fourth in the majors with 141 strikeouts but also ranks third with 52 walks, including 21 in his last five outings. Yet, he's given up no more than two runs in seven of his past nine starts.
July 1 1:51 PM PT2:51 PM MT3:51 PM CT4:51 PM ET16:51 ET20:51 GMT4:51 1:51 PM MST3:51 PM EST4:21 PM VEN0:51 UAE (+1)3:51 PM CT-Robbie Ray fell to 8-4, allowing four runs on five hits and five walks in 6.0 innings, as the Arizona Diamondbacks lost to the Colorado Rockies 6-3 on Friday. Ray struck out nine, ending the game with a 3.06 ERA and 1.20 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Ray was dealt his first loss since May 9 despite another high-strikeout effort. The left-hander had gone 6-0 with a sensational 1.29 ERA over his previous seven starts, with the 128 Ks he's racked up in 100 innings adding to his increased fantasy value. He'll face a tough challenge against another NL West contender on Thursday, though, as he's matched up against the undefeated Alex Wood in a visit to Dodger Stadium.
June 25 9:17 AM PT10:17 AM MT11:17 AM CT12:17 PM ET12:17 ET16:17 GMT0:17 9:17 AM MST11:17 AM EST11:47 AM VEN20:17 UAE11:17 AM CT-Robbie Ray improved to 8-3, allowing two runs on six hits and four walks in 6.1 innings, as the Arizona Diamondbacks defeated the Philadelphia Phillies 9-2 on Saturday.

Analysis: Ray wasn't as dominating as he's been in some recent starts but still improved to 6-0 with a 1.29 ERA over his last seven outings. He next takes the ball Friday at home versus the Rockies. In his only start of the season against Colorado on April 28, Ray yielded three runs, five hits and three walks in 6.2 innings in a 3-1 home loss. He is 1-2 with a 5.82 ERA and 1.52 WHIP in four career home starts against the Rockies, serving up seven homers in 21.2 innings.
June 18 5:42 PM PT6:42 PM MT7:42 PM CT8:42 PM ET20:42 ET0:42 GMT8:42 5:42 PM MST7:42 PM EST8:12 PM VEN4:42 UAE (+1)7:42 PM CT-Robbie Ray allowed four runs on eight hits and four walks in 5.1 innings as the Arizona Diamondbacks defeated the Philadelphia Phillies 5-4 on Sunday. Ray struck out seven, ending the game with a 2.87 ERA and 1.14 WHIP on the season.

Ray struck out 11, ending the game with a 2.85 ERA and 1.07 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: It was the first run Ray has allowed in four starts as his scoreless innings streak ended at 27 2/3 innings, third-longest in franchise history. Ray has won all four of those starts, giving up just 11 hits in 30 1/3 innings while striking out 36. "I'm working quicker than I have," Ray said. "I'm not getting stuck in my delivery. Everything is feeling really good. It's almost just get the ball back and whatever (sign) they throw down, I'm comfortable."

Ray struck out nine, ending the game with a 3.45 ERA and 1.20 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: It was the second consecutive outing in which Ray pitched at least seven innings without allowing a run and yielding just two hits. Ray improved to 3-1 with an 0.81 ERA on the road, and his next scheduled start is Tuesday in Pittsburgh. However, he's 0-2 with an 8.00 ERA in four starts versus the Pirates, including a season-low four-inning outing May 14 when he gave up four runs and six hits.

Analysis: Ray entered Saturday's matchup coming off two outstanding road starts, limiting the Dodgers and Giants to a combined one unearned run while racking up 18 strikeouts over 12 2/3 innings. The lefty owns a 6.55 ERA in his two outings at Chase Field, where he'll face San Diego on Thursday.

Analysis: The lefty left the game trailing but was bailed out when the Diamondbacks scored four times in the bottom of the sixth. Ray did show he'll remain a good source of strikeouts, and seems to have a chance to improve on last year's 8-15 record behind what looks to be an improved Arizona team.
