Anthony DeSclafani (8-7) allowed one run on five hits and three walks through five innings in Saturday's 6-1 win over the Cardinals. He picked up his eighth win of the season.
DeSclafani induced 15 swinging strikes on 89 pitches, which will boost what is already a career-high swinging-strike rate. He has been inconsistent from start to start on account of his homer issues. DeSclafani owns a 4.40 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 127 strike outs in 122 2/3 innings this season. His next start is scheduled for Friday, away against the Pirates.
