The Phillies had a strong weekend, winning three close games against Colorado. They are slowly but surely building a nice lead in the NL East even though the team is not quite clicking on all cylinders. Bryce Harper did homer in back to back games and had six RBIs in the series so perhaps he is ready to start earning that contract. The lineup can still be better.
Zack Eflin has been really good this season. He leads the team in ERA and has good ratios too. His home/road splits are not encouraging but shouldn’t scare you either. He got roughed up a little in his last start against Milwaukee but before that he has three straight with one earned run or less allowed. The bullpen could be better but it has been sharp lately. Used a lot too.
Chicago has been playing good ball lately and has built themselves a nice lead as well. They have better numbers than Philly offensively and on the mound too. As I write this on Monday they have four players tied for the team lead with 11 homers. How is that for a balanced attack. Best of all they include Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo, who struggled early but have come on.
Jose Quintana is having a good season for the Cubs. If you throw out one terrible start against Milwaukee he has not given up more than 3ER in any start this season. He has also been extra sharp at home which bodes well for him here. He has occasional trouble with the long ball so hopefully the wind isn’t blowing out. The bullpen is probably the weak link on the team. Brandon Morrow is still more than a month away.
