Morgan

Adam Morgan (1-7) 6.62 ERA

Phillies: Adam Morgan's last win came on May 10th, 12 games, 10 starts, and 53 innings ago. Over his previous two starts Morgan has thrown a total of 8 innings, surrendering 8 earned runs, while opponents are hitting .378/.395/.730 against. That is, let's say, less than ideal. He's due for a good outing.

Wainwright

Adam Wainwright (9-7) 4.72 ERA

Cardinals: While the Phillies' Morgan's recent starts have been bad Wainwright's have been worse. Over his last two he's thrown 8 frames and given up 13 earned runs as his opponents (Atlanta and Chicago) are getting on base at a .500 clip. One of these pitchers has to win, let us hope it isn't Waino tonight.
