Monday Night July 16 National League Game Previews

Late Games


Pittsburgh at Colorado – Pirates RHP Jeff Karstens (2-2, 3.94) vs. Rockies LHP Jeff Francis (2-2, 5.19): Karstens had his best outing since being on the disabled list for two months on July 5, pitching eight scoreless innings, allowing four hits and walking just one batter. He also registered a season-high eight strikeouts. … Francis pitched well in his last start on a blistering day at Washington, but he saw the two runners who were on base when he departed score because of sloppy defense, taking the loss. He has been the team’s most consistent starter. Take Pirates.

Houston at San Diego – Astros LHP J.A. Happ (6-9, 5.14) vs. Padres RHP Kip Wells (1-2, 2.50): Happ’s up-and-down season saw him go 2-1 with a 2.84 ERA in a promising three-start span before he was roughed up in his final start before the break Friday, allowing nine hits and seven runs in 6 1/3 innings vs. Milwaukee. … Wells makes his fourth of the season and his first since July 6. His first start came against the Astros on June 26, as he allowed two runs in five innings. Earlier this month, he tossed seven shutout innings at Coors Field. Take San Diego.

Philadelphia at LA Dodgers – Phillies RHP Joe Blanton (7-8, 4.98) vs. Dodgers RHP Nathan Eovaldi (1-5, 4.21): Blanton gave up five earned in 6 1/3 in a loss to the Braves. The righty has allowed a home run in 11 straight games, but is facing a Dodgers team that is tied for last place in the National League with 52 homers. … Eovaldi deserved better than 1-5 at the break, considering the Dodgers’ offense scored four runs total in his five losses. He’s coming off his first win, allowing one run to Arizona in six innings. Take Philly.
