1:05 PM EST. Dakota Hudson (RHP - STL) has struggled with gopher ball issues on the road so far (2.2 hr/9 over 20.2 IP), but his 62% ground-ball rate suggests there's been some extreme bad luck at play in that department. Hudson puts the ball in play and induces one ground ball after another. That’s not a bad strategy at this park but this wager is more about fading the Phillies starter.
Jerad Eickhoff (RHP - PHI) threw 8 shutout innings against the Cardinals on May 8, but had three walks to only four strikeouts and his 5.04 xERA for that game shows there was lots of luck involved (14% hit rate, 100% strand rate). Eickhoff may win today or the Phillies may win but Eickhoff is not posting another gem here against the Cards. We promise you that. Eickhoff’s brief run of relevance may be coming to an end, as over his last five games started, he has a 5.04 ERA, 3.6 BB’s/9, 6.8 K’s/9, and a 5.30 xERA.
