Josh Collmenter fired seven innings of one-run ball to beat the Padres on Wednesday.

The right-hander wasn't blowing anybody away -- striking out three and walking two -- but he induced weak contact to the tune of four singles and a double. Though we preface this by saying that two of the starts came against the Padres -- who have hit much better during their recent surge -- Collmenter is dealing right now, allowing only one earned run in his last three starts across 21 2/3 frames (0.42 ERA). The hot streak leaves him 10-7 with a 3.81 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and a 103/36 K/BB ratio. Collmenter looks to keep the good times rolling when he travels to San Francisco on Tuesday.
Sep 4 - 12:57 AM

Josh Collmenter yielded only one run over 6 1/3 innings but was handed a no-decision as the D'Backs came back late and defeated the Rockies 5-2 on Friday.

Collmenter and Bergman were locked in a pitcher's duel -- or, more accurately, an offensive ceasefire -- for much of the evening. The right-hander gave up only two hits without walking a batter while striking out five. Collmenter has pitched well over his last two starts and now sports a 3.94 ERA, a 1.25 WHIP, and a 100/34 K/BB ratio. He'll take on the Padres in San Diego on Wednesday next.
Aug 30 - 12:42 AM

Josh Collmenter fired 8 1/3 innings of one-run ball (none earned), striking out eight, to baffle the Padres in a 5-1 win on Friday.

He let only four runners grace the base paths, and they all came via singles. Two of them occurred in the ninth inning, with Alexi Amarista crossing home on a Miguel Montero passed ball after Collmenter was lifted for Matt Stites. This performance came out of left field, as it was the first time Collmenter has cracked six innings worked, allowed less than three earned runs, or earned a win in over a month. Collmenter is nothing special, but he's been an appreciated back-end starter in NL-only formats, going 9-7 with a 4.05 ERA and 1.25 WHIP.
Aug 23 - 12:10 AM

Tuesday's game between the Diamondbacks and Indians has been postponed due to rain.

Play was suspended in the top of the fourth inning before eventually being called a while later. Scheduled starters Josh Collmenter and T.J. House were both pitching well before the delay but will obviously be unavailable for a few days now. The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader on Wednesday.
Aug 12 - 11:43 PM

Josh Collmenter surrendered three runs on three hits over six innings Wednesday in a loss to the Royals.

Collmenter struck out six and walked two. The right-hander hates interleague play, having come into this evening with a 6.20 ERA in four career starts against the AL. Collmenter started out the season well, but he put up a mediocre 4.60 ERA in June and an ugly 5.14 ERA in July. Making his second start of August, he travels to Cleveland next week.
Aug 7 - 12:47 AM

Josh Collmenter yielded three runs on four hits over 5 1/3 innings Thursday versus the Pirates in a no-decision Diamondbacks' victory.

Collmenter struck out four and walked two. He came into tonight with a 1.59 ERA in four career starts against the Pirates and 5-2 with a 2.89 ERA in his last 10 starts at Chase Field. Collmenter remains 8-5 to go with a 4.07 ERA and 1.30 WHIP. He gets the Royals in Arizona next time around.
Aug 1 - 1:03 AM

Josh Collmenter stifled the Cubs en route to a win on Sunday, allowing only one run over seven frames.

Collmenter outdueled Jake Arrieta, holding the Cubs to four hits and a walk while striking out four. Not much has gone right for Arizona this season, but Collmenter certainly has. He has allowed one run or fewer in three out of his last four starts and now owns a 3.64 ERA, a 1.24 WHIP, and a 69/29 K/BB ratio. The right-hander will try to keep it going when he takes on the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park over the weekend.
Jul 20 - 7:13 PM

Josh Collmenter limited the Marlins to one run over seven innings Wednesday in a Diamondbacks victory.

Collmenter was left with a no-decision because the Arizona offense didn't break through until extra innings. He gave up seven Miami hits, but walked only one and struck out six in the impressive start. The right-hander will carry a solid 3.80 ERA and 1.27 WHIP into his next scheduled outing at home against the Cubs.
Jul 9 - 6:50 PM

Josh Collmenter was tagged for five runs over six-plus innings in Friday's loss to the Braves.

Collmenter gave up four runs over the first two innings, so he was fortunate to make it all the way to the seventh inning. He allowed a season-high 11 hits in the loss while striking out three and walking one. His ERA now sits at 3.98 for the year. He'll get the Marlins next week.
Jul 4 - 11:50 PM

Josh Collmenter limited the Padres to one run and five hits in 5 1/3 innings in a victory on Saturday.

We're not sure one run in 5 1/3 innings against the Padres even qualifies as a good outing these days, but it did serve to lower Collmenter's ERA from 3.87 to 3.74. He's picked up a win in three straight appearances, including a surprise relief outing in extra innings against the Indians on Tuesday.
Jun 29 - 1:43 AM

Josh Collmenter pitched five innings of one-run ball Friday in a victory over the Giants.

Collmenter walked a season-high four, but it didn't do any damage, except for perhaps forcing him from the game an inning early. The lone run scored when Buster Posey singled and Pablo Sandoval tripled in the first. It was Collmenter's first win since his first career shutout back on May 29 against the Reds.
Jun 21 - 12:50 AM

Josh Collmenter was tagged for six runs in six innings Saturday in a loss to the Dodgers.

As everyone predicted, it was a two-run homer from Dee Gordon and a three-run double from Dan Haren that did him in. Since pitching a shutout against the Reds on May 29, Collmenter has given up 13 earned runs over 18 innings in his last three starts. Ideally, he'll return to a middle relief role at some point.
Jun 15 - 12:55 AM

Josh Collmenter coughed up four runs -- three earned -- over seven innings as the Diamondbacks lost 4-3 to the Astros on Monday.

Collmenter surrendered seven hits, walked one, and whiffed five. This type of outing is typically sufficient to earn a victory over the Astros, but not against a team that is 12-4 since May 24. After falling to 4-3 with a 3.65 ERA and 1.16 WHIP, Collmenter gets the Dodgers on Sunday.
Jun 10 - 12:55 AM

Josh Collmenter scattered three hits in a complete game win over the Reds on Thursday in which he faced the minimum 27 batters.

He struck out five and didn't walk a batter. Collmenter faced the minimum 27 batters after inducing three double plays to erase the trio of hits he gave up. Since 1914, there's been only 13 pitchers who have faced the minimum 27 batters while allowing at least three hits, with Collmenter the latest on the list. Roy Oswalt last pulled off the feat in 2008. Tonight's effort marked Collmenter's first career complete game and shutout. He needed only 94 pitches to pull off the trick, coaxing 13 ground balls from the Reds. Now 4-2 with a 3.34 ERA, Collmenter has a tough matchup coming up with a road date in Colorado next week.
