Milwaukee Brewers (44-52) at Philadelphia Phillies (43-54)
Marco Estrada (0-4, 4.10) vs. Vance Worley (5-6, 3.82)
Another day, another unbelievable comeback. The Phillies will go for the sweep this afternoon.
Vance Worley’s last start can be summed up by one bad inning. Worley allowed a five-spot in the sixth inning against the San Francisco Giants. He made one bad mistake to Brandon Crawford, which turned out to be the game. Worley is still having a fine year, and has minimized talks of a sophomore slump.
Marco Estrada spent some of the season in the bullpen. As a starter this season, he has struggled, going 0-4 with a 4.45 ERA. He was placed on the disabled list in June, but has been a little better since his return. In his last four starts, he has had a quality start or better. His strikeout totals have been off the charts recently, fanning 45 in 24.2 innings.
