Marlins SP David Phelps fires eight shut-out innings in re-match
In a re-match, the right-hander twirled eight shut-out innings against the Rockies on Thursday, as the Marlins were victorious 6-0. He allowed four hits (three singles), while striking out six and walking just one.
"That's an outstanding outing by him to set the tone the way he did," Marlins manager Dan Jennings said, per MLB.com. "Five days ago he certainly wasn't pleased with his outing against this same team that was leading the National League in hitting.
This was by far the best start of the season for Phelps, who lowered his ERA to 4.11 and evened his record to 3-3.
"I didn't make a whole lot of quality pitches the last time against these guys, and that really was what I was focusing on tonight," Phelps said. "Just keeping the ball down in the zone and executing my pitches. It paid off."
He's scheduled to make his next start Tuesday at home against the Yankees.
