Date:

Aaron Harang was tagged for five runs in 4 1/3 innings by the Dodgers in a loss Thursday.

It was his first decision in six starts and his first loss in 10 starts since June 18. He entered with a 2.49 ERA since the beginning of July, so one bad outing doesn't qualify as any reason to drop him.
Aug 14 - 4:08 PM

Aaron Harang limited the Nationals to a run over seven innings Saturday in a no-decision.

It's Harang's fifth straight no-decision. The Braves have actually lost all five of those games, even though Harang allowed two runs or fewer in four of them. With a 3.31 ERA, he's done a surprisingly nice job of maintaining his early success.
Aug 10 - 2:36 AM

Aaron Harang allowed two runs over six innings in a no-decision against the Padres on Sunday.

Harang did his usual thing, issuing a few walks and striking out a few batters while generally limiting runs. Harang now has a 3.41 ERA through 23 starts this year, and he hasn't lost a game since June 18. Harang will try to keep that streak going when he faces the Nationals on Sunday.
Aug 3 - 10:25 PM

Aaron Harang was trampled for four runs on nine hits over six innings in a no-decision against the Dodgers in Tuesday's start.

Harang whiffed three and issued one free pass. The veteran right-hander entered this game 4-0 with a 2.20 ERA in his last six outings, but couldn't sustain the success, which is always the fear with a slop thrower. Harang, 9-6 with a 3.43 ERA, has a nice matchup next time out, as he's scheduled to visit Petco Park and the Padres on Sunday.
Jul 30 - 2:00 AM

Another solid outing for Harang, who has now allowed two runs or fewer in 14 of 21 starts this season. Against the Marlins, Harang allowed seven hits, walked two, and struck out five. The right-hander now sports a 3.31 ERA, 1.37 WHIP, and a 104/49 K/BB ratio. He'll toe the slab against the Dodgers on the road next week.
Jul 24 - 9:57 PM

Aaron Harang earned win number nine after limiting the Mets to one run over seven innings of work in Thursday's start.

Harang has now won four consecutive contests. Thursday's start was the 14th out of 19 in which Harang has allowed two or fewer earned runs as well. Overall, the right-hander allowed only four hits while walking four and striking out two. The 36-year-old right-hander owns a 3.53 ERA, a 1.38 WHIP, and a 95/44 K/BB ratio heading into the All-Star break.

Aaron Harang allowed four runs -- three earned -- in eight innings but the Braves beat the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

Harang had a rough opening inning -- surrendering three runs -- but he did well to settle in after that and was picked up by the Atlanta offense. The right-hander earned his eighth win of the season in the process and will bring a solid 3.67 ERA into his next outing on the road versus the Mets.
Jul 5 - 7:28 PM

Aaron Harang improved to 7-6, allowing two runs over seven innings as the Braves defeated the Phillies 3-2 on Sunday.

Harang was by no means dominant, allowing 11 hits, walking two, and striking out four. However, the right-hander was able to pitch his way out of danger consistently, as Marlon Byrd was the only one able to do any damage with two solo home runs. Harang now has a 3.69 ERA, a 1.41 WHIP, and a 92/39 K/BB ratio. He'll do battle against the Diamondbacks in his next start.
Jun 29 - 5:10 PM

Harang bounced back from a 13-hit, nine-run drubbing from the Phillies his last time out to pull his record even at 6-6. The right-hander gave up six hits and two walks on the night, striking out five. Harang has backed off his torrid pace in April, but he still owns a 3.78 ERA and 88/37 K/BB ratio through 16 starts on the year. Harang will get another shot at taming the Phillies lineup when they meet up this weekend.
Jun 24 - 11:37 PM

Aaron Harang was blasted for nine runs -- eight earned -- over five innings in Wednesday's loss to the Phillies.

Harang gave up a whopping 13 hits, walked three and threw two wild pitches. He needed 115 pitches to cover the five frames. The veteran right-hander has held up surprisingly well in the Braves' rotation thus far, but today's effort is a reminder that he's been pitching over his head. He'll take a 3.83 ERA into Houston next week.
Jun 18 - 4:11 PM

Aaron Harang picked up his fifth victory of the season on Friday, surrendering just one run on four hits over six innings against the Angels.

The veteran right-hander continues to defy expectations and pitch well in the Braves rotation. The only offense against him in this one, came on a run-scoring wild pitch in the third inning. Harang now sports a 3.20 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 79/32 K/BB ratio on the season. He'll head in search of his sixth victory when he takes on the Phillies at home on Wednesday.
Jun 13 - 10:52 PM

Aaron Harang walked six while allowing three runs over six innings in a loss to the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

Harang dodged bullets all day, and it finally caught up to him in the seventh inning. He gave up a two-run home run to David Peralta, and his walk of Cody Ross also came around to score after he'd departed. He hasn't been as good as he was in April, but Harang still owns a 3.33 ERA and 1.28 WHIP through 13 starts. An interleague date with the Angels looms on Friday.

Harang is bound to hit a wall at some point, and it could very easily happen next weekend in Arizona.
