Phillies starter Zack Wheeler allowed four earned runs on five hits and three walks while striking out six over 5 2/3 innings in Tuesday's no-decision against the San Francisco Giants.
Wheeler was in line for the win before the Philadelphia bullpen imploded for what was an eventual 10-7 loss. After firing seven shutout innings in a win over the Braves in his first start, Wheeler has dropped two of his last three starts and has a 3.80 ERA and 26 strikeouts through 23 2/3 innings. He'll look to bounce back when he takes on the Cardinals in St. Louis in his next start.

Wheeler was dominant in his first start against the Braves to open the season, firing seven shutout innings while striking out 10 and allowing just one hit.

This was about as good of a start to the 2021 season as Wheeler and his fantasy managers could have hoped for. After a breakout season in 2020 that saw him pitch to a 2.92 ERA, Wheeler is hoping to build on that success this year. Worth noting is that Wheeler struck out 10 batters in seven innings Saturday after striking out just 53 in 71 innings in 2020.
Phillies' skipper Joe Girardi announced on Monday that Zack Wheeler would take the mound for the second game of the season.
This should not come as too much of a surprise, considering Wheeler's impressive 2020 campaign in which he tallied a 2.92 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, and 53 strikeouts over 71 innings pitched. Wheeler will face an Atlanta team that hit .275 against righties last season, but Wheeler should remain a no-doubt starter in all formats.
