Looking Ahead

Archie Bradley takes the mound against the Phillies at 10:35 Arizona time, facing off with Zac Eflin. Eflin might have been horrible in his debut last time out, but he was putting together a good season at AAA Lehigh Valley before getting the call. He was 5-2 with a 2.90 ERA and a 0.878 WHIP in 11 starts. He'll likely get it figured out soon and do better at the MLB level, but hopefully he can wait until the start after this one.
