Pitcher Preview: Mike Pelfrey vs. Tyler Cloyd

Tonight's game features the matchup of Mike Pelfrey and Tyler Cloyd. For some reason, I've been lucky enough to have to have covered the past few Pelfrey starts, and I have to say, it hasn't been a ton of fun. Admittedly, Pelfrey's start last Thursday against the Royals was pretty good for him -- 3 runs on 7 hits in 6/13 innings. Not shabby, especially considering some of the pretty awful starts he's had this year. Tonight, he looks to continue to upward trend and stay in the game past the 6th inning again.

Tyler Cloyd hasn't been outstanding for the Phillies, but he's been able to hold his own for sure. His last start was against the Brewers last week, and while he wasn't dominating, he did hold them scoreless over 6 2/3 innings.
