Thursday night, the Miami Marlins will send Tom Koehler to the hill as they take on the Philadelphia Phillies and Cole Hamels. Koehler makes his 16th start as Hamels makes his 13th.
Tom Koehler took the loss his last time out and that lowered his record to 5 - 6 with a 3.74 ERA. In the loss, Koehler surrendered 2 runs on 4 hits in 7 innings as he walked 3 and struck out 8. Koehler has already matched his win total of 2013 when he was 5 - 10 with an ERA of 4.41 in 23 starts and 6 relief appearances.
Last season, Koehler was 0 – 1 with a 9.00 ERA in a start and a relief appearance against the Phillies. As a team, the Phillies are batting .250 against Koehler with 6 hits, a homer and 7 RBIs in 24 at-bats.
Cole Hamels saw his record drop to 2 - 4 with a 2.76 ERA after losing his last start. In that outing, Hamels allowed 3 runs on 5 hits in 7.1 innings of work. He tied his season high with 5 walks while striking out 8. It doesn’t appear that Hamels will be able to post a better record or ERA than he did last season when he finished with an 8 – 14 record and an ERA of 3.60 in 33 starts.
In 2013, Hamels didn’t face the Marlins but he has a start against them this year. In that start, Hamels got a no-decision after giving up 3 runs on 6 hits (including a home run) while walking 1 and striking out 6.
