Philadelphia got shutout in its first game against St. Louis this week but bounced back to win on Tuesday and Wednesday, winning the series before traveling Thursday ahead of another three against the American League’s team in Missouri.
Jared Eickhoff threw eight innings of three-hit baseball on Wednesday, striking out four. He has looked superb of late with that big breaking ball. If he rediscovers the form that had Phillies fans so excited for his future a number of years ago, the Phils become very dangerous in the NL.
The most important pitcher, to me, on the roster is Jake Arrieta, though. Sure, he’s the most proven arm on the staff but he has to be an ace if this staff is going to be elite. So far this season, he has. He’s thrown forty-five innings in seven starts and has a 132 ERA+. His WHIP is under one-and-a-quarter.
I’m just not sold it will continue. His FIP is good but not great and his strikeouts to walks leaves something to be desired (7.4 Ks per nine to 3.2 BBs). It’s one of the biggest reasons I’m not bullish on Philadelphia, going forward.
Kansas City Royals
Kansas City lost a decisive rubber match in Houston on Wednesday, 9–0. Brad Peacock struck out a dozen in seven innings for the Astros and Michael Brantley had a big day at the plate.
Kansas City’s only three hits came from the two speedsters at the bottom of the order, Terrance Gore (one) and Billy Hamilton (two).
Homer Bailey has been better than most would have expected at the start of the season. He’s gone at least five innings in six of his seven starts and at least six four times.
But after striking out twenty-seven in his first four starts, he’s fanned just seven in the three since. That’s a red flag I can’t ignore.

Free Philadelphia Phillies vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction: over.
I want to fade Bailey but I think the best way to do it is by taking the over, for Arrieta could get touched up a couple of times, too. I’m thinking we could get a decent number and cash this one early.
