Today's Starting Pitchers GS IP ERA WHIP BAA HR BB K W-L
Luke Hochevar - RH - #44 13 78.1 4.60 1.51 .271 8 36 48 5-5
Radhames Liz - RH - #62 5 23.2 5.70 1.39 .230 4 13 18 2-0

Liz has really only pitched poorly in one game (6/20 @ MIL). He's also amazingly allowed exactly four hits in every single start. Hochevar had a nice eight-inning outing against the Rockies last time out, but the defending NL champs are 19 games under .500, so big deal.
