|PHI (-115) @ pinnacle|
I'm playing on PHILADELPHIA. The Phillies gave up six runs in the eighth to blow yesterday's game. While that certainly stung, I'm coming right back with them again this afternoon. Eflin was outstanding last time out. He held a powerful St. Louis lineup to a single run, on just four hits, through seven complete innings. His other two starts have come against the Braves, another potent lineup. Yet, he's still got a stellar 0.95 WHIP so far this season, averaging nearly seven innings per start. To his credit, DeSclafani has also pitched well. He hasn't been going quite as deep as Eflin though and he's also got a poor 5.34 ERA in six career appearances vs. the Phillies. I say the Phillies bounce back.
