Mejia seeks to get his first win as a Diamondbacks player

42-85. 63-62. 6. . 8. Bally Sports Arizona. Saturday, Aug 28th. 6:05 ET

Humberto Mejia will be making his second ever start with the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday evening. He pitched great in his most recent start Monday against the Pirates. He had the third most K’s in a Dbacks debut since the team started. He struck out 7 over 5 innings of 2-run ball.  It was pretty good for his debut. His stat-line is 0-0, 3.60 ERA, 7 K’s.

On the bump for Philly is All-Star pitcher Kyle Gibson. The Dbacks roughed him up last week when

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.
