he started against them. He went 6 innings and allowed 7 hits, 3 ERs, 2 walks, and 5 K’s. He lost that start as well. He’s the Phillies 2nd best pitcher and will be looking for revenge. His stat-line is 9-5, 3.06 ERA, and 113 K’s.
The Phillies have no experience against Mejia. Likewise, the Dbacks have plenty of experience against Gibson. Everyone but Pavin Smith, Christian Walker, and Carson Kelly have a hit off Gibson. Look for them to try to replicate their success.
