Moseley looking for some support at Wrigley Field · Roster Report · Notes, Quotes
 

Two Padres right-handed starting pitchers with polar-opposite, early-season fortunes despite close to parallel ERAs will be pitching against the Cubs on Wednesday in a doubleheader at Wrigley Field.

Aaron Harang is 3-0 with a 1.50 ERA after three starts.

Dustin Moseley is 0-3 with a 1.83 ERA after three starts.

What separates the two?

Run support.

The Padres have been shut out in each of Moseley's three starts. It marks only the third time since 1972 that a major league pitcher has had his team shut out in each of his first three starts. Moseley has the 10th-lowest ERA in the National League and the 10th-lowest road ERA (1.32).

Harang has been the beneficiary of 14 of the 54 runs scored by the Padres, who have been shut out four times in 16 games. He ranks sixth in the NL in ERA and is tied for the league-lead in wins. He has the fourth-lowest opponents' batting average (.190).
