The first pitcher has 11 quality starts (55% of their games)
The second pitcher has 14 quality starts (67% of their games)
The first pitcher has allowed fewer home runs, and to the extent that one believes that HR/FB rates are controllable, that gives him the edge in fielding-independent terms. But in the end despite the HR difference, they've ended up allowing the same number of runs.
The first pitcher's team has scored 5.6 runs per 9 innings while he's pitching, and he's 11-5.
The other pitcher's team has scored 2.6 runs per 9 innings while he's pitching, and he's 4-12.
(also, the first pitcher has a .159 wOBA in 42 PAs when batting, while the second has a .158 wOBA in 42 PAs)
The Phillies face the first pitcher tonight. The second pitcher starts tomorrow in Detroit.
