Tuesday's streaking and slumping starting pitchers
Here are two streaking and two slumping starting pitchers set to take the hill Tuesday:
Matt Moore, Tampa Bay Rays (6-0, 2.14 ERA)
Moore has assumed the role of temporary ace of the Rays pitching staff while David Price fights through his early struggles. The crafty lefty has wins in six of his seven starts and will get the ball against the Red Sox Tuesday opposite John Lackey.
Patrick Corbin, Arizona Diamondbacks (5-0, 1.75 ERA)
Corbin hasn't given up more than two runs in any of his seven outings this year. The left-hander has wins in three consecutive starts and has only surrendered two homers in just over 46 innings pitched.
Bartolo Colon, Oakland Athletics (3-2, 4.57 ERA)
Colon racked up three wins in his first four starts, but the righty has struggled over his last three outings. The 39-year-old hurler has been beat up for 14 earned runs over his last three outings and was hit hard by the Tribe for six earned last time out.
Kyle Lohse, Milwaukee Brewers (1-4, 3.53 ERA)
The Brewers had high expectations for Lohse when they signed him in the offseason to a three-year deal. The righty is just 1-4 on the season, but he hasn’t pitched that poorly as reflected in his 3.53 ERA. Milwaukee is providing Lohse with just two runs of support per game – the worst run support in the majors.
