Carlos Ruiz gets to start in front of the Philly faithful after pinch-hitting Tuesday night. Expect to hear plenty of Chooch chants when he comes to the plate. Robinson Cano is also back in the lineup after being pulled from Tuesday’s game due to a hamstring issue.
Zach Eflin has pitched seven innings in each of his last three starts. May 4 against the Cubs Eflin gave up three runs in seven innings on nine hits, no walks, and one strikeout. For the season, Eflin has a 2.42 ERA, 0.846 WHIP, and 4.00 strikeout-to-walk ratio in four starts so far this year.
Taking on the Phils is the 31-year old Yovani Gallardo. His ERA of 4.46 may be a bit inflated as he has a FIP (fielding-independent pitching) of 3.30. Through six starts this season, Gallardo has given up 38 hits, 12 walks, 17 runs, and struck out 26 batters in 34.1 innings. In his most recent start against the Rangers, Gallardo gave up one run on four hits over six innings.
After Wednesday, the two teams will meet again in Seattle on June 27.
