Dan Straily was pounded for seven runs in 2 2/3 innings by the Angels on Monday.
Straily has been a pretty great stopgap for the Reds this year, but he sure didn't have it tonight, giving up four homers to the 17 batters he faced. He had gone 10 straight starts without ever giving up four runs, much less four homers. He's now 10-7 with a 3.92 ERA. Aug 30 - 1:16 AM

Dan Straily held the Rangers off the scoreboard for six innings in Tuesday's 3-0 victory.

He surrendered just three singles and two walks while recording five strikeouts. Straily looked like he was hitting a wall in June, but he's now gone 10 straight outings without allowing more than three runs. He boasts a 2.43 ERA since the beginning of July. Straily will try to keep it going the next time out in Anaheim.

Dan Straily limited the Marlins to two runs over six innings, striking out seven, in a win Thursday.

Straily gave up six hits and didn't issue a walk, with Marcell Ozuna's two-run home run in the sixth inning counting as the only damage against him. It was the seventh straight start the right-hander has allowed two runs or fewer -- he's unsurprisingly 5-0 in that span -- and Straily lowered his ERA to 3.72 in the win. The five-game winning streak has his record up to 9-6, and Straily will look to keep the streak going Tuesday against the Rangers.
Aug 18 - 11:08 PM

Dan Straily allowed 10 hits but only two runs over 5 1/3 innings in a win over the Brewers on Saturday.

The win was the fourth in a row for Straily, who hasn't allowed more than two runs in a start since July 8. Expand that threshold to three runs and Straily has a streak dating back to June 27. It's no surprise, then, that he's 8-6 with a 3.75 ERA and 1.14 WHIP in 25 appearances, including 22 starts, overall. Straily will try to keep the magic going Thursday against the Marlins.
Aug 14 - 12:26 AM

Dan Straily mostly cruised through Sunday's win over the Pirates, allowing only a pair of solo home runs over six innings.

Matt Joyce and Josh Harrison cracked solo homers off Straily in the fifth and sixth innings, respectively, but the 27-year-old right-hander otherwise kept the scoreboard clean. The only other hit he allowed over six innings was a Jung-Ho Kang single in the fifth (immediately after Joyce's homer). Straily has not allowed more than two runs in any of his last five starts. He has not allowed more than three in any of his last seven. A road date with the Brewers shows next on his schedule as he tries to keep up this fantastic midseason run.
Aug 7 - 5:11 PM

Dan Straily held the Cardinals to two runs over six frames but settled for a no-decision in Tuesday's 7-5 win.

The first dent in the scoreboard off of Straily came on an Adam Wainwright home run. He also coughed up a game-tying double to Jhonny Peralta in the sixth but pitched well overall. Straily has now notched six straight quality starts and holds a 3.80 ERA and 1.14 WHIP. Not bad for a waiver claim. He'll get the Pirates on the road this weekend.
Aug 2 - 11:55 PM

Jerry Crasnick of ESPN reports that while the Reds have received calls on Dan Straily, they appear likely to keep the right-hander rather than move him at the trade deadline.

Straily has pitched very well recently, going 2-1 with a 2.40 ERA in his last five starts. While it may be beneficial to sell him while his value is high, the Reds may believe that he has turned a corner and will be a valuable contributor in the future.
Jul 30 - 2:05 PM

Dan Straily pitched well in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Giants, surrendering one run on three hits over 7 2/3 innings.

Straily struck out five and walked one on the afternoon. He will be able to tell his grandchildren about this one, as he out-pitched potential NL Cy Young winner Madison Bumgarner in order to secure the win. The only run to score on his watch came when Conor Gillaspie rocked a solo homer to right in the bottom of the third inning. With this marvelous outing under his belt, Straily now holds a 3.84 ERA and 1.15 WHIP for the season as a whole. He will look to repeat Wednesday's result in a home start against the Cardinals next time out.
Jul 27 - 6:50 PM

Dan Straily racked up eight strikeouts over six innings of two-run ball in a victory over the Diamondbacks on Friday.

The right-hander scattered five hits and three walks on the evening. The D'Backs jumped on him with two runs in the first inning, but Straily was able to settle in beautifully afterwards, finishing his night with five shutout innings. Now 5-6 on the season, he'll look to replicate this fine effort when he does battle against the Giants in San Francisco on Wednesday.
Jul 22 - 11:28 PM

Dan Straily pitched superbly in Sunday's no-decision against the Brewers, allowing just three hits over seven scoreless innings.

Sunday's face-off between Straily and Brewers starter Zach Davies was a textbook pitcher's duel, with each starter tossing seven shutout innings. For his part, Straily struck out four and walked one. He threw 99 pitches (72 strikes) on the afternoon. Through 108 1/3 innings (17 starts in 20 appearances), the 27-year-old right-hander holds a 4.07 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 84/46 K/BB ratio. Next up on his schedule, a home date with the Diamondbacks.
Jul 17 - 4:19 PM

Dan Straily took a loss to the Marlins on Friday despite making a quality start, allowing three runs on six hits in six innings.

He struck out two and walked two. His record falls to 4-6 with a 4.35 ERA. Straily has been a bit of a pleasant surprise for the Reds' beleaguered pitching staff, but he is a flyball pitcher with a high walk rate in a homer-friendly ballpark. Don't be surprised if his second half is worse than his first.
Jul 8 - 9:47 PM

Dan Straily allowed three runs over seven innings Saturday against the Nationals.

Straily yielded just two hits while walking three, but his bullpen denied him a chance to pull his record even at 5-5. Instead, he settled for a no-decision while lowering his ERA to 4.34. Straily will make one more start before the All-Star break, taking on the Marlins on Friday.
Jul 3 - 12:28 AM

Dan Straily was lit up for seven runs over just 3 2/3 innings in Monday's loss to the Cubs.

He gave up nine hits and walked three batters on the night. Straily has been a nice waiver claim for the Reds but has hit a wall of late with 17 runs allowed over his last three starts. He'll bring a 4.38 ERA into this weekend's outing against the Nationals.
Jun 27 - 10:52 PM

Dan Straily spanned seven innings Saturday, allowing just one run and five hits in a win over the Athletics.

He fanned five while handing out three free passes. The seven-inning effort matched Straily's longest start of the year. Oakland's lone run came on an RBI single from Danny Valencia in the first inning. Straily is quietly having a terrific season. The right-hander has held opponents to a miserable .199 average with 64 punch-outs in 74 1/3 innings. He'll look for his fifth win Thursday against Atlanta.
Jun 11 - 7:33 PM

Dan Straily held the Nationals to two earned runs over seven innings Saturday in a no-decision.

Cincinnati didn't take the lead for good until the bottom of the eighth inning, so the win went to reliever Ross Ohlendorf. Straily pitched well, yielding only two hits and two walks while striking out three. The right-hander owns an impressive 3.34 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 59/29 K/BB ratio in 67 1/3 innings this season and he faces a weak A's offense at home next time out.
