Oakland brings out Daniel Mengden to the mound tonight.
Mengden is only 0-1 with an ERA of 7.07 on the season but, his last outing, he impressed upon his return to the big league stage, allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits in six innings against the Astros in his first big league start since June 3.
Mengden may have a bad stats but the man can throw.
Oakland has been playing fantastic winning 6 of their last 7 in which they were the under dog in every one of those games. How have they been doing this?
Well, for their last 7 games they have an OBP of 3.86. Getting on base is key to winning. Plain and simple folks. “Moneyball”.
Mark Leiter is pitching for the Phillies tonight. This should be a good match up. Leiter has been struggling, so going up against someone with a similar situation should be interesting to watch.
Mark Lieter’s ERA for the season is 4.84 but in the last 3 games has been 8.44.
He has posted an 11.57 ERA in his past two starts. It shot his ERA from 3.88 to 4.84.
He has a WHIP of 1.53 in the last 4 games. He needs to keep that down to win against Oakland.
As a team, Philadelphia has struggled badly this season. They have evened out a bit lately. They are playing .500 in their last ten games.
