Though neither of these starting pitchers has really been all that effective this year, this is a number that feels quite high to us at a flat nine. The Dodgers have held all but one of their foes to four runs or fewer since September 4th, and the offense went six straight games with three runs or fewer before exploding for nine runs last night. When you look at the numbers for RHP Stephen Fife and RHP Brandon McCarthy, you can’t really be all that impressed. Fife has a 3.21 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP for the season, proving that he should really be giving up more in the way of runs. McCarthy is just 4-9 with a 4.58 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP. However, really dive into what these two have done of late. Fife has a 0.54 ERA in his last three starts. McCarthy has a 2.74 ERA in his last three starts and a 1.00 WHIP to go along with that. And the oddsmakers think that there are going to be 10 runs in this game? We tend to think not. Only one game (last night’s game) went beyond the nine runs in the last five meetings in this series, all of which have come since September 9th. The recipe is there for this to be a low scoring clash.
