FTSW: Reds at Phillies, May 19

New, 185 comments

The series is even at 1. Today, the Phillies go for the series win.

With both teams notching one in the win column already, today is for the series win. Jonathan Pettibone goes up against Homer Bailey.

Want to win a bar bet this morning before the game? Ask your neighbor which player has the lower ERA and the higher win total? If your neighbor said Homer Bailey, you win! Bailey is 2-3 with a 3.51 ERA. Pettibone is 3-0 with a 3.41 ERA. Of course, if your neighbor is thinking about xFIP instead of ERA, Bailey would be the right answer, as Bailey has a 3.09 xFIP while Pettibone is at 4.64.

But those are details for nerds who live in their parents' basements into their forties. For now, we'll focus on Pettibone's great run, the fact that Bailey is a righty, and the hope that maybe the Phils bats will wake up from yesterday's slumber.

Here's to a series win!
