Cardinals’ Flaherty strikes out seven over six vs. Brewers
Jack Flaherty fanned seven over six scoreless innings in defeating the Brewers on Friday. Flaherty looks like an early favorite for pitcher of the month honors for August; he's won all three of his starts while allowing a total of two runs and striking out 23 in 19 innings. He's 7-6 with a 3.05 ERA overall.
Dodgers’ Buehler strikes out eight in win vs. Mariners
Walker Buehler limited the Mariners to one run and three hits in six innings to win Friday. Buehler struck out eight. The Dodgers showed quite a bit of faith in the rookie when they moved Kenta Maeda and Ross Stirling to the pen. Buehler still might wind up in relief at some point in September, but since he got some time off due to injury in June, he's not pushing up against any innings limit right now.
