Arrieta (6-6) took the loss in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader, giving up one run on two hits and a walk over six innings while striking out three as the Phillies fell 2-0 to the Nationals.
The right-hander made only one real mistake, getting taken deep by Brian Dozier in the second inning, but that was one mistake too many with Max Scherzer in Cy Young form for the Nats. Arrieta now has 10 quality starts on the season, and he'll carry a 4.12 ERA and 73:37 K:BB through 91.2 innings into his next outing Monday, at home against the Mets.
Arrieta won't make Tuesday's scheduled start versus the Nationals due to inclement weather.
Arrieta will have his turn through the rotation pushed back again due to a second straight postponement in Washington. According to Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer, the 33-year-old will toe the rubber for Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Nationals.
Arrieta won't make his scheduled start Monday against the Nationals due to inclement weather, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
Monday's game will be made up as part of a doubleheader Wednesday, though Arrieta has been announced as Tuesday's starting pitcher following the postponement, per Zolecki.
Arrieta (6-5) earned the victory Tuesday against the Diamondbacks by allowing three runs on six hits across six innings. He struck out five and walked four.
Walks were once again a major issue for Arrieta as he delivered a first-pitch strike to only 11 of the 28 batters he faced, though he nonetheless was able to deliver a quality start. The veteran right-hander has a 4.31 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 70:36 K:BB over 85.2 innings and should take the mound Sunday in Atlanta or Monday at Washington, depending how the team shuffles things around following Jerad Eickhoff's demotion from the starting rotation.
Arrieta allowed five runs on seven hits and five walks across 4.2 innings during a no-decision against the Padres on Wednesday. He struck out three.
In his last start, Arrieta yielded a season-high 10 hits, including three homers. In this appearance, he had trouble finding the strike zone, as he issued a season-high number of walks while also allowing a pair of home runs. Arrieta has now yielded nine homers in his last six starts, after he only surrendered five in his first seven outings of the season. The veteran right-hander is 5-5 with a 4.29 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 65 strikeouts in 79.2 innings. He's scheduled to make his next start at home against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.
