Roberto Hernandez and the Philadelphia Phillies will be hoping to keep Josh Collmenter winless when they face the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday night.
Roberto Hernandez may not have taken the loss against the Colorado Rockies on Sunday, but he certainly deserved one. He was only able to pitch four innings in that outing and gave up six earned runs on nine hits while striking out three and walking one. The 33-year-old veteran now has a 5.75 ERA on the season and is striking out a career-high 8.9 batters per nine innings.
Aaron Hill has faced Hernandez 24 times in his career and has six hits and five strikeouts against him. Mark Trumbo has hit a home run off of the right-hander, but that is one of just three hits in 15 at-bats.
Josh Collmenter picked up his second straight loss on Sunday when the Dodgers were able to get four runs off of him. He made it through six innings in that outing and gave up five hits and walked two while striking out six. Collmenter now has a 4.50 ERA on the season through 18 innings.
Shortstop Jimmy Rollins has gone up against Collmenter 10 times in his career and has two hits, two walks and a strikeout. Chase Utley, who is 3-for-4 against Collmenter, is the only Phillies' hitter who has an extra-base hits against him.
