W-L ERA WHIP K BB
2008 - Mike Pelfrey 2-2 5.27 1.92 11 14


Pelfrey has pitched more than 5.1 innings in just one start this year and he's given up 5 runs in each of his last two starts. The big thing that sticks out about him is that he has 3 more walks than strikeouts so far. Also, he's given up 12.5 hits per nine innings this year. Hopefully the Reds have the patience to wait for their pitch, because it looks like Pelfrey will give it to them.

Not that Belisle is much better, but at least he's avoided giving up a bunch of walks this year. Unfortunately, he's been even more hittable than Pelfrey, surrendering over 15 hits per nine innings this season. Suffice to say, this could turn into a barn burner very easily tonight.
