Wrigley Field - Chicago, IL

Starting Pitchers

____________________________________________________________

Karstens has had a wicked breaking pitch through a recent hot stretch, using it primarily to notch 29 strikeouts in his last 34 innings. Trying to close out another strong July (2-0, 2.67) after posting a 2.06 ERA in five starts in July last season.

The Cardinals roughed up Wood in his last start as he became the first Major League pitcher to give up home runs in five consecutive innings. In his last five starts, Wood is 2-3 with a 7.36 ERA, and he has given up 10 home runs.
