Godley pitched a gem in his first start of the season going seven innings giving up one on four hits to go along with three strikeouts and one walk while getting the win. The strikeouts were low, but I wouldn’t be concerned as he owns a career K/9 of 8.63.
It was good seeing this young pitcher rise to the occasion going toe-to-toe with Clayton Kershaw. His 3.37 ERA and 3.41 ERA will be hard to repeat from a year ago, but his 1.29 ERA and 2.64 FIP is a good start.
Arizona’s lineup has been so-so to start the season slashing .247/.351/.400 while posting 27 extra-base hits and 41 RBI. Whats making them effective is their plate discipline as they own a 43:75 BB/K ratio.
San Francisco Giants
Holland took the loss in his first start as he could only make it five innings before getting pulled after giving up five runs (three earned) off of three hits while striking out four and walking three. This is becoming the norm for Holland as he struggles to stay in the Majors.
He got the call to start Mondays outing and will be working on nearly nine days rest. His command is still an issue from last year where is posted a 5.00 BB/9. In his defense, his defense didn’t do him any favors giving up two unearned runs while he posted a 3.27 FIP.
San Francisco’s lineup is only slashing .250/.295/.405 to go with 19 extra-base hits and 22 RBI, but in their defense they have had to face the Los Angeles Dodgers pitching staff six times already this season. They’ll need to work on getting more free bases as they only have 17 walks right now compared to 60 strikeouts.
