Where did this Joe Kelly win streak come from?

Through Joe Kelly's first 16 starts this year, he won two games.  He finished the month of July with a 2-6 record.  Since then, he has eight wins in eight starts to improve to 10-6.

The thing is, Pedro Martinez was Pedro Martinez, and Joe Kelly is Joe Kelly.  Yet somehow Kelly is the only starter in baseball this year to win eight consecutive decisions.  I can't remember ever seeing such a bizarre and unexpected pitching streak before--80 percent of Kelly's victories in 2015 have come in the last third of his season.
