In-Game, Strasburg in Philly

Stephen Strasburg will get his 2nd start coming back from his back/neck pain issue.  Stephen’s last start was very good on Wednesday vs. the Mets until Drew Storen relieved him in the 7th with a man on base.  The Phillies counter with David Buchanan who is making his 12th start of the season and this is not a typo, he has a 9.11 ERA.  Yes, 9-1-1

Buchanan is a sinkerballer who throws 90-91mph and relies on sink and unfortunately for him it’s been mostly stink.  He also throws a few 4-seamers and cutters along with a curveball and change-up.

Desi and RZim have both hit Buchanan at a .500 BA and Desi has a HR against him. Espi hits him at .400 and both Rendon and Werth at a .333 BA.  Bryce is a career 0-3 and Esco, TyMo, CRob, and MAT have never faced him.

Lineups are:
