Eflin pitched a gem in his last outing as he put in a quality start and picked up his seventh win of the season. He went seven innings giving up five hits, two earned runs and one home run while he struck out six and walked none.
Eflin has been riding a six-game winning streak, four of those were quality starts, while the other two were pretty much quality starts. During that span he’s given up two runs or less per game, while he owns a solid 34:6 K:BB ratio. He’s also brought his ERA from 4.50 to 2.97.
Philadelphia continues to play winning baseball as they’ve won all five of their contests in the past week. During that span their lineup is slashing .231/.338/.405 to go with 18 extra-base hits and 30 RBI.
Kingham had a rough outing in his last start as he was rocked by the Los Angeles Dodgers while he was tagged with his fourth loss of the season in a 1-17 blowout. He went only three innings giving up eight hits, five earned runs and three home runs while he struck out two and walked three.
In seven starts this year he owns a solid strikeout (8.69 K/9) to walk (2.35 BB/9) rate, but he had trouble stranding base runners (65.5% LOB%) and keeping the ball in the park (1.64 HR/9). The end-result is an unimpressive 4.70 ERA and a slightly better 4.49 FIP.
Pittsburgh has continued to slump in the last week as they could only win one of their six contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .246/.297/.420 to go along with 22 extra-base hits and 23 RB

Pittsburgh’s pitching has been horrendous, meanwhile Philadelphia’s pitching has been carrying them lately. These two teams have been going in different directions, and I’m going to back the team with the hotter pitcher.
