Thursday night, David Phelps gets the call for the New York Yankees as they face T.J. House and the Cleveland Indians. Phelps makes his 13th start and 22ns appearance as House makes his 8th start and 9th appearance.
David Phelps pitched to his 3rd straight no-decision in his last outing and that kept his record at 3 - 4 with a 4.01 ERA. Phelps had a decent start though as he allowed just a run on 3 hits in 7 innings of work. He walked 2 while striking out 3. Had he received some run support, he might have earned a victory. Last season, Phelps posted a record of 6 -5 with a 4.98 ERA in 12 starts and 10 relief appearances.
In 2013, Phelps was 1 - 1 with a .071 ERA in 2 starts against the Indians. He has held Cleveland to a .205 average with 9 hits, 2 homers and 5 RBIs in 44 at-bats.
T.J. House picked up his first win of the season in his last outing and that took his record to 1 - 2 with a 4.24 ERA. In that outing, House gave up 3 runs and 9 hits (including a home run) in 6.2 innings. He didn't issue any walks while striking out 3. House has had an up and down beginning to his Major League career but maybe he can build some momentum behind his 1st win.
House hasn't faced the Yankees yet but with a good scouting report he should be able to post some decent results against New York.
