Philadelphia Phillies vs Miami Marlins Starting Pitchers Report
Phillies RH Jake Arrieta (6-6, 3.47 ERA): Arrieta collected his first win since May 29 on Saturday after allowing two runs and striking out eight in a 3-2 victory at Pittsburgh. The 2015 NL Cy Young Award winner worked seven innings for the first time since that May 29 outing against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Arrieta struggled in a pair of outings versus Miami this season, allowing three runs in four innings of a no-decision April 8 before doubling that run total on eight hits in 3 2/3 frames of an 8-4 setback April 30.
Marlins LH Wei-Yin Chen (2-6, 6.14): Chen hopes a bit of home cooking will feed his success, as he sports a 1.89 ERA and 7.3 strikeouts per nine innings in six starts at Marlins Park as opposed to a ghastly 10.47 ERA on the road. The 32-year-old Taiwan native was gouged for seven runs on as many hits in 4 1/3 innings at Washington on Saturday to fall to 0-3 in his last four starts. Maikel Franco (7-for-16, two home runs), Odubel Herrera (4-for-10) and Cesar Hernandez (5-for-15) have flustered Chen, who is 1-3 with a 4.02 ERA in six career appearances versus the Phillies.
