Sep. 27 10:09 PM PT11:09 PM MT12:09 AM CT1:09 AM ET1:09 ET5:09 GMT13:09 10:09 PM MST12:09 AM EST12:39 AM VEN9:09 UAE12:09 AM CT-Roark's string of strong starts came to an abrupt end when he was tagged for five runs and gave up a pair of homers in four innings of Monday's loss to Arizona.
Analysis: Roark entered the matchup having yielded only four runs while posting a 1.13 ERA over his previous five starts. The right-hander will be a bounce-back candidate when he takes the mound in Sunday's regular-season finale against Miami, though he's 1-4 with a 5.02 ERA in five meetings with the Marlins this season.
Sep. 20 6:37 PM PT7:37 PM MT8:37 PM CT9:37 PM ET21:37 ET1:37 GMT9:37 6:37 PM MST8:37 PM EST9:07 PM VEN5:37 UAE (+1)8:37 PM CT-Roark suffered a loss Tuesday, allowing a homer and two other hits over seven innings of a 1-0 defeat to the Marlins.
Analysis: The right-hander is just 2-2 over his last five starts despite posting a 1.13 ERA. He's received a total of six runs of support in those outings.
Sep. 14 6:58 PM PT7:58 PM MT8:58 PM CT9:58 PM ET21:58 ET1:58 GMT9:58 6:58 PM MST8:58 PM EST9:28 PM VEN5:58 UAE (+1)8:58 PM CT-Roark allowed three hits and four walks over seven innings in Wednesday's 1-0 win over the Mets.
Analysis: Roark has a 1.08 ERA over his last four starts and now has a 1.27 ERA in four matchups with the Mets this season. He next takes the ball Wednesday against the Marlins, whom he hasn't faced since May 20, when he permitted a run over 6 2/3 innings.
Sep. 10 9:59 AM PT10:59 AM MT11:59 AM CT12:59 PM ET12:59 ET16:59 GMT0:59 9:59 AM MST11:59 AM EST12:29 PM VEN20:59 UAE11:59 AM CT-Roark allowed one run, six hits and two walks over six innings in the Nationals' 5-4 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday.
Analysis: Unfortunately for Roark, he's seen the last of the Phillies. The right-hander is 3-0 with a 0.79 ERA in five starts against Philadelphia this season.
Sep. 4 10:48 AM PT11:48 AM MT12:48 PM CT1:48 PM ET13:48 ET17:48 GMT1:48 10:48 AM MST12:48 PM EST1:18 PM VEN21:48 UAE12:48 PM CT-Roark (14-8) allowed two runs over five innings and walked a career-high four - one intentional in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Mets.
Analysis: He was lifted for a pinch hitter in the sixth, but Washington never broke through and had its four-game winning streak snapped.
Aug. 29 8:51 PM PT9:51 PM MT10:51 PM CT11:51 PM ET23:51 ET3:51 GMT11:51 8:51 PM MST10:51 PM EST11:21 PM VEN7:51 UAE (+1)10:51 PM CT-Roark dominated the Phillies on Monday to record his 14th win. The right-hander yielded four singles and a walk while striking out five over seven scoreless innings.
Analysis: The overlooked member of Washington's star-studded rotation, Roark has quietly led the NL with 10 wins and 102 1/3 innings pitched since June 11. He's been especially good of late, compiling a 5-1 record and a 2.36 ERA over his last seven starts.
Aug. 25 10:04 PM PT11:04 PM MT12:04 AM CT1:04 AM ET1:04 ET5:04 GMT13:04 10:04 PM MST12:04 AM EST12:34 AM VEN9:04 UAE12:04 AM CT-Roark gave up five runs in five innings and hit three batters in the Nationals' 10-8 loss to the Orioles on Wednesday.
Analysis: Roark had been 5-2 with a 2.13 ERA in his previous eight starts in the nation's capital.
Aug. 20 7:49 AM PT8:49 AM MT9:49 AM CT10:49 AM ET10:49 ET14:49 GMT22:49 7:49 AM MST9:49 AM EST10:19 AM VEN18:49 UAE9:49 AM CT-Roark was unable to win a fifth consecutive start Friday, though he wound up with a no-decision at Atlanta after allowing three runs and four hits over 6 1/3 innings.
Analysis: The right-hander was hurt by a pair of home runs but was otherwise solid again. With a 4-0 record and a 2.14 ERA over his last five starts, Roark should remain a solid play even in a tough upcoming matchup against Baltimore on Wednesday.
Aug. 14 6:04 PM PT7:04 PM MT8:04 PM CT9:04 PM ET21:04 ET1:04 GMT9:04 6:04 PM MST8:04 PM EST8:34 PM VEN5:04 UAE (+1)8:04 PM CT-Roark won his fourth straight start Sunday, limiting the Braves to one run and five hits over seven innings in a 9-1 win.

Aug. 7 8:22 PM PT9:22 PM MT10:22 PM CT11:22 PM ET23:22 ET3:22 GMT11:22 8:22 PM MST10:22 PM EST10:52 PM VEN7:22 UAE (+1)10:22 PM CT-Roark and the Washington bullpen outdueled Madison Bumgarner as the Nationals beat the San Francisco Giants 1-0 Sunday in a matchup of NL division leaders.
Analysis: Roark (12-6) gave up five hits in seven innings and won for the sixth time in his last seven decisions. The right-hander has thrown at least seven shutout innings a league-best seven times.
Aug. 3 10:08 PM PT11:08 PM MT12:08 AM CT1:08 AM ET1:08 ET5:08 GMT13:08 10:08 PM MST12:08 AM EST12:38 AM VEN9:08 UAE12:08 AM CT-Roark allowed three runs and seven hits over 6 1/3 innings in a 10-4 win at Arizona on Tuesday.

July 29 8:43 AM PT9:43 AM MT10:43 AM CT11:43 AM ET11:43 ET15:43 GMT23:43 8:43 AM MST10:43 AM EST11:13 AM VEN19:43 UAE10:43 AM CT-Roark outdueled Giants All-Star Johnny Cueto to record his 10th victory Thursday, allowing a run and four hits in seven innings with three walks and three strikeouts in a 4-2 win.
Analysis: It seems his previous performance, allowing five runs in five innings in a loss to San Diego, was an outlier. That poor outing included the only two home runs he's surrendered in his last seven games, a span in which Roark is 4-1 with a 2.49 ERA.
July 16 8:57 PM PT9:57 PM MT10:57 PM CT11:57 PM ET23:57 ET3:57 GMT11:57 8:57 PM MST10:57 PM EST11:27 PM VEN7:57 UAE (+1)10:57 PM CT-Roark turned in a brilliant effort in Saturday's 6-0 win over Pittsburgh, limiting the Pirates to five hits and a walk over eight-plus innings.
Analysis: He added a key RBI single during a three-run fourth inning as well. Often overlooked in Washington's star-studded rotation, Roark (9-5) has been consistently good throughout the season. Saturday's performance was his 12th quality start and lowered his ERA to 2.82.
July 7 9:21 AM PT10:21 AM MT11:21 AM CT12:21 PM ET12:21 ET16:21 GMT0:21 9:21 AM MST11:21 AM EST11:51 AM VEN20:21 UAE11:21 AM CT-Roark allowed four runs and seven hits in seven innings as the Nationals overpowered the Milwaukee Brewers 7-4 Wednesday to avert a three-game sweep.
Analysis: It's the fourth straight start that Roark has pitched at least seven innings and just the fifth time in 18 that he's allowed more than three earned runs.
June 25 6:46 PM PT7:46 PM MT8:46 PM CT9:46 PM ET21:46 ET1:46 GMT9:46 6:46 PM MST8:46 PM EST9:16 PM VEN5:46 UAE (+1)8:46 PM CT-Roark took injured Stephen Strasburg's turn in the rotation Sunday and pitched seven scoreless innings to win for the third time in four starts.

Analysis: Coming off the shortest start in his four-year career - a clunker in Cincinnati in which he allowed five runs in three innings - the right-hander found his groove against the skidding Phillies. In three starts against Philadelphia this season, Roark is 2-0 with an 0.86 ERA.
May 31 12:34 PM PT1:34 PM MT2:34 PM CT3:34 PM ET15:34 ET19:34 GMT3:34 12:34 PM MST2:34 PM EST3:04 PM VEN23:34 UAE2:34 PM CT-Roark held Philadelphia to two runs and four hits over seven innings Monday to pick up his fourth win.

Analysis: Roark (3-3, 2.89 ERA) came into the game 0-3 in three starts versus the Marlins this season with an ERA of 8.40. Against the rest of the majors he's 2-0 in five starts with an ERA of 0.79.

Analysis: Roark (2-2) twice struck out the side and fanned at least two in four other innings. It was only the second time in 52 career starts the right-hander reached double digits in strikeouts - the other was on July 6, 2014, when he fanned 11 at San Diego.
Apr. 14 1:31 PM PT2:31 PM MT3:31 PM CT4:31 PM ET16:31 ET20:31 GMT4:31 1:31 PM MST3:31 PM EST4:01 PM VEN0:31 UAE (+1)3:31 PM CT-Roark allowed four hits over seven innings in Wednesday's 3-0 home win over the Braves.
