17 Ks in a 7 inning game (WOW). Guess he decided to reclaim that award winning arm which has been sorta missing this year. This game improved his ERA considerably going from 5.23 up to 3.40.

Appears to be their Saturday guy. He's 1-3 on the year.

While Indiana’s pitching staff is pretty stout, their offense has been meh.

Agreed, still, that's a whole lot of strikeouts.
