July 23 8:19 AM PT9:19 AM MT10:19 AM CT11:19 AM ET11:19 ET15:19 GMT23:19 8:19 AM MST10:19 AM EST10:49 AM VEN19:19 UAE10:19 AM CT-Tanner Roark improved to 8-6, allowing two runs on three hits and one walk in 7.0 innings, as the Washington Nationals defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks 4-3 on Saturday. Roark struck out 11, ending the game with a 4.83 ERA and 1.38 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Roark has allowed just two earned runs in 13 innings over his last two starts, striking out 16, so perhaps he's starting to come around.

Analysis: A 16-game winner a year ago, Roark remains among this season's major fantasy disappointments. The right-hander fell to 0-4 over his last five starts and owns a wretched 11.88 ERA and a 2.34 WHIP through his past four. On the positive side, he has a consistent track record of success against his next opponent, the Mets. Roark is 6-2 with a 2.35 ERA in 10 career starts versus New York.

Roark did not strike out a batter, ending the game with a 4.88 ERA and 1.41 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Roark was hit hard in a third straight start, a stretch during which he's 0-2 with a 9.88 ERA.
June 14 5:26 PM PT6:26 PM MT7:26 PM CT8:26 PM ET20:26 ET0:26 GMT8:26 5:26 PM MST7:26 PM EST7:56 PM VEN4:26 UAE (+1)7:26 PM CT-Tanner Roark fell to 6-4, allowing seven runs on nine hits and two walks in 5.0 innings, as the Washington Nationals lost to the Atlanta Braves 13-2 on Wednesday.

Analysis: Roark was hit hard in a second straight start, having surrendered five runs (two earned) and 11 hits over six innings in last Friday's loss to Texas. The right-hander is 3-1 with a solid 3.86 ERA on the road this season, so he should have a chance to bounce back in Monday's assignment at Miami.

Apr. 27 10:02 AM PT11:02 AM MT12:02 PM CT1:02 PM ET13:02 ET17:02 GMT1:02 10:02 AM MST12:02 PM EST12:32 PM VEN21:02 UAE12:02 PM CT-Roark improved to 3-0 on Wednesday as he allowed two runs and four hits in five innings against the Mets, walking four and striking four.

Apr. 22 9:00 AM PT10:00 AM MT11:00 AM CT12:00 PM ET12:00 ET16:00 GMT0:00 9:00 AM MST11:00 AM EST11:30 AM VEN20:00 UAE11:00 AM CT-Roark gave up three runs over 6 2/3 innings in a 4-3, 11-inning win over the Mets on Friday.

Apr. 11 9:38 AM PT10:38 AM MT11:38 AM CT12:38 PM ET12:38 ET16:38 GMT0:38 9:38 AM MST11:38 AM EST12:08 PM VEN20:38 UAE11:38 AM CT-Roark got a win Monday despite a subpar outing, surrendering five runs - three earned - and seven hits in five innings of a 14-6 win over the Cardinals.
Analysis: At least Roark did not walk a batter after issuing 73 last season, tied for fifth-most in the NL. He wasn't helped by the Nationals committing three errors behind him, but they did give him six runs of support for a second straight game, so another high win total could be in his future. He won 16 games last season and is 2-0 this year.
Apr. 5 7:27 PM PT8:27 PM MT9:27 PM CT10:27 PM ET22:27 ET2:27 GMT10:27 7:27 PM MST9:27 PM EST9:57 PM VEN6:27 UAE (+1)9:27 PM CT-Roark recovered from a shaky start to go six innings, leading the Washington Nationals past the Miami Marlins 6-4 Wednesday night.
Analysis: Roark (1-0) allowed two runs in the first inning, then hit two men and threw a wild pitch in the second, but he wound up retiring 13 of the last 14 batters he faced. We expect him to be better next time out.
