Monday's streaking and slumping starting pitchers


Wandy Rodriguez, Pittsburgh Pirates (10-13, 3.71)

Rodriguez struck out seven over seven scoreless innings Tuesday to pick up the win over the Astros. The lefty has won back-to-back decisions and three of his last four starts, compiling a 1.25 ERA over his last 21 2/3 innings. He has a tough road start in Cincinnati next.

Kyle Kendrick, Philadelphia Phillies (8-10, 3.96)

Kendrick allowed two runs over six innings Tuesday to the Reds. The righty is 4-1 with a 1.53 ERA in his last five starts and has a favorable matchup against the Marlins next time out.


Rick Porcello, Detroit Tigers (9-11, 4.58)

Porcello yielded three runs over 5 2/3 innings Tuesday as Detroit fell to Cleveland. The right-hander has lost five consecutive starts with a 1.57 WHIP over 28 2/3 innings. He takes the hill against the White Sox on Monday.

Ryan Vogelsong, San Francisco Giants (12-7, 3.29)

Vogelsong allowed six earned runs over 3 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday. The 35-year-old hurler has allowed 10 runs in his last 9 1/3 innings pitched and now has to deal in hitter-friendly Coors Field against the Rockies.
