In his first start of the season Smith was able to whiff by the Chicago Cub’s lineup for eight strikeouts over 5.1 innings, while only giving up one earned run on four hits in a no-decision.
Don’t be surprised by the strikeouts as this lefty has the stuff to cause swing-and-misses. His problems can stem from his command as he has struggled hitting his spots in the big league with a 4.88 BB/9.
He has a small sample size, but if he proves he can keep the walks to a minimum, then this is a pitcher to keep an eye on this year.
As expected, their lineup hasn’t had a great start hitting .236/.330/.306 in their first six games while only producing 12 extra-base hits and 22 RBI.
It was a short outing for Pivetta who came away with the no-decision in his first start of the season. He only went four innings giving up three earned runs on four hits to go along with a 2:3 walk-to-strikeout ratio.
Command still seems to be an issue for Pivetta as he owns a 3.88 BB/9 in his short MLB career. Like Smith though, if he can keep the walks to a minimum, he has the swing-and-miss stuff to prevail in this league.
It has been a rough start for this Philadelphia lineup only slashing .188/.286/.308 in their first four games while only producing 10 extra-base hits and 12 RBI.

4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER 8.5
With the way both teams have been hitting and their unfamiliarity against the opposing pitchers, I expect this game to be a low scoring affair that goes under the total.
