Thursday's Streaking and Slumping Starting Pitchers
By Covers.com

Streaking

Kyle Kendrick, Philadelphia Phillies (7-9, 4.12 ERA)


Kendrick makes his first start against the Mets. In two relief appearances against New York this season, he has allowed five earned runs with four walks in 2 1/3 innings. He has blossomed in his return to the rotation, going 3-1 with a 3.10 ERA in five starts this month.

Matt Moore, Tampa Bay Rays (10-7, 3.60 ERA)

Moore has won four consecutive decisions and last lost on July 22 to the Seattle Mariners. He is 5-1 with a 1.97 ERA in eight starts since the All-Star break. Moore is 1-0 with a 2.53 ERA in two starts against Toronto. He took a no-decision against the Oakland Athletics in his last outing, allowing three runs and seven hits in 6 1/3 innings.

Slumping

Rick Porcello, Detroit Tigers (9-9, 4.60 ERA)


Porcello's next win will give him double-digit victories in each of his first four seasons in the majors, but he has been denied that milestone with three straight losses. His last two outings have been quality starts, but he got little run support. Porcello held Kansas City to three runs over eight innings in a  win May 1 in Detroit, improving to 5-2 with a 4.56 ERA in 12 starts against the Royals.

Jamie Garcia, St. Louis Cardinals (3-5, 4.15 ERA)

Garcia is making his third start since returning from a shoulder injury that sidelined him two-plus months. He had a sharp first outing against the Pittsburgh Pirates – striking out 10 and allowing just two unearned runs in eight innings in a no-decision – before losing to Cincinnati in his last start. Garcia gave up four runs and seven hits in six innings against the Reds. He is 2-0 with a 1.65 ERA in three career starts against Washington.
