Braden Shipley dominant in Thursday's win for Arizona
Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Braden Shipley allowed just three hits over seven innings in the Diamondbacks' 9-0 shutout of the New York Mets on Thursday.
Neutralizing the Mets hasn't been particularly notable as of late -- they've now scored five runs in the last three games -- but Shipley still pitched very well. He only needed 78 pitches to finish seven innings, even while striking out seven and walking one. If Arizona wasn't watching Shipley's workload, he would have had a good chance at throwing a complete-game shutout. The 24-year-old right-hander is scheduled to make two starts next week -- one against the Mets again and the other against the San Diego Padres on the road -- making him an appealing streaming option.
Shipley has now made four starts on the year (24 1/3 innings) and lowered his ERA to 2.96 (4.97 xFIP) after Thursday's performance. He owns a 17.00 strikeout percentage (league average is 21.01 percent) and will need to work on his 12.00 walk percentage (league average is 8.15 percent).
