Archer allowed one run on six hits, walking one and striking out six over seven innings, but came away with a no-decision against Toronto on Sunday afternoon.

He had a string of five straight quality starts snapped in his last outing (allowing four runs, just one earned over 5.2 innings), but was back on point in this one. Archer has high quality stuff when his command serves him, and his recent performances suggest he is fairly locked in. He'll try to keep it going against Boston in his next scheduled start.

Archer gave up four runs (one earned) over 5.2 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Tigers. He struck out six but yielded five hits and five walks while taking a no-decision.

All of the damage against Archer came in the sixth inning, as the right-hander ultimately squandered a 4-0 lead. The outing snapped a streak of five straight quality starts for Archer, and was a poor follow-up to his previous turn, in which he whiffed 12 batters over seven innings. Given his general reliability over the last few weeks, Archer can still probably be rolled with confidence in his subsequent outings, in spite of Tuesday's uninspiring performance.
