Tuesday's streaking and slumping starting pitchers

Streaking

Brandon Beachy, Atlanta Braves (5-1, 1.33 ERA)

The 25-year-old right-hander, who’s coming off a five-hit shutout of Miami, leads the majors in ERA and ranks fifth with a WHIP of 0.89. He went to a 3-ball count only once against the Marlins. Since the franchise moved to Atlanta, Beachy is the third Brave to post an ERA under 1.50 in his first eight starts of a season. The league is batting .177 against him.

Aaron Harang, Los Angeles Dodgers (3-2, 3.83 ERA)


Harang has turned around his season over the last three starts, tossing 21 innings while allowing three runs on 15 hits. He’s gone at least six innings in six of his past seven starts. However, current D-Backs are hitting .306 against the 34-year-old right-hander. 

Slumping

Matt Moore, Tampa Bay Rays (1-4, 5.20 ERA)

The 22-year-old lefty has served up eight homers this season, including two in his last outing vs. the Red Sox. He has an unsightly WHIP of 1.58, and has lasted six innings only once in his last five starts. Moore has tremendous potential, but has not yet developed command of his outstanding stuff.

Adam Wainwright, St. Louis Cardinals (2-5, 5.77 ERA)


Batters are hitting .298 against Wainwright, whose comeback from Tommy John surgery has been rocky. The 30-year-old right-hander is struggling with his control. He’s yielded nine walks in his last two starts, while striking out six. But lifetime he’s 2-1 with a 1.46 ERA in six starts against San Diego.

really?? I don't think so. The phillies lineup in anemic without Howard and Utley. Halladay can only do so much. He can keep em to 1 or 2 runs but where are the Phils runs coming from? Rollins? Pence? No.... Nationals are way more consistent. Thanks.
