Pitching Matchups

Friday: Adam Morgan (1-5, 6.33 ERA) vs. Robbie Ray (3-5, 4.57 ERA)

Saturday: Jerad Eickhoff (4-8, 3.40 ERA) vs. Zack Greinke (9-3, 3.75 ERA)

Sunday: Zach Eflin (0-1, 27.00 ERA) vs. Archie Bradley (2-3, 5.66 ERA)

Monday: Jeremy Hellickson (4-5, 4.46 ERA) vs. TBA

Greinke is coming into this series hot– has won his last six starts and posted a 2.05 ERA in that stretch, and he has more strikeouts (35) than hits allowed (30).

Zach Eflin will make his second major league start on Sunday. His first start didn’t quite go as he would have hoped, giving up nine runs (eight earned) in just 2.2 innings against Toronto. This isn’t the pitcher that he has shown he can be though. He went 5-2 with a 2.90 ERA in 11 minor league starts this year, and he has a 3.41 career minors ERA.
