McCarthy is coming off his record-setting 10 strikeouts, no walks, four homers outing against Seattle that even he considered "weird." Obviously, he likes to pitch around the plate.

Despaigne was good in his first start of the season against the D-backs, as he stepped in for an injured Ian Kennedy and allowed one run over seven innings. He has been very good in his career at home (1.66 ERA) but has scuffled on the road (5.31).

Morrow got off to a slow start in his last time out, allowing a home run to Arizona's Paul Goldschmidt. But once he found his release point and slider, he was better, allowing four hits after the first, while striking out five over seven innings.

Shields didn't have his best stuff the last time out against the Cubs but still won. He was behind hitters and didn't locate his pitches as he would have liked. But he still struck out nine in six innings and made big pitches when he needed to.
