Wednesday's streaking and slumping starting pitchers

Streaking

Ted Lilly, Los Angeles Dodgers (5-0, 1.79 ERA)

The 36-year-old lefty seems to be getting better with age. He has a sparkling WHIP of 0.90 and is holding batters to a .170 average. Lilly has gone at least six innings in every start this season. Last time out, he allowed zero earned runs over seven innings to the Cardinals. However, Lilly is just 5-7 with a 4.14 ERA in 14 career appearances vs. Arizona.

Scott Diamond, Minnesota Twins (3-0, 1.40 ERA)

The 25-year-old lefty is perfect through three starts, though he was finally scored upon in his last outing. He owns a WHIP of 0.98, and the league is hitting .236 against him. Diamond is showing great control, with 13 strikeouts against two walks in 19 1/3 innings.

Slumping


Daniel Bard, Boston Red Sox (3-5, 4.85 ERA)

The 26-year-old right-hander has yielded at least four earned runs in three of his past four starts. He has a terrible strikeout-to-walk ratio of 26:25. After Bard walked five and hit two batters in five innings against the Phils last Friday, Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine called the free passes unacceptable. "That amount of walks, you can't leave your team out there, and you can't keep letting those guys on base,” Valentine said. “He's tough to hit in the strike zone. Might as well throw it in there.”

Marco Estrada, Milwaukee Brewers (0-3, 4.63 ERA)


The converted reliever has served up eight homers in his last five starts. In his last four starts covering 24 innings, Estrada has yielded 15 earned runs on 26 hits. The Brewers lost each of those starts. Estrada was forced into the rotation following Chris Narveson’s shoulder injury, and the experiment simply has not worked.
