PHOENIX — Like pitching?

The final game of the St. Louis-Arizona series Wednesday features a couple starters who have had strong seasons but also should be considered under-the-radar All-Star candidates Josh Oliver Jersey , at least for those who have not been paying close attention.

You could look it up.
Miles Mikolas rank in the top 10 among NL qualifiers in ERA, WHIP, WAR and innings pitched. The only statistical difference is in strikeouts, where Corbin is tied for second and Mikolas is down the pack. Mikolas compensates by pitching to contact and getting the majority of his outs on the ground.

They are compatible in one more way — each has received below-average run support. Corbin has received the fourth-fewest, 3.65 per start. Mikolas’ support checks in under the league average.

Arizona used a three-run homer from Paul Goldschmidt to take a 4-2 victory Tuesday as the teams have split the first two games of the series. Arizona will conclude a 10-game homestand with a four-game set with San Diego beginning Thursday, when the Cardinals open a four-game series in San Francisco before finishing a nine-game trip in Chicago against the White Sox.

Mikolas, 29, has been perhaps the most pleasant surprise in the major leagues this season, signing with the Cardinals over the winter after three strong seasons for the Yomiuri Giants in the Japanese Central League. He was 3-13 with a 2.18 ERA in 62 starts in Japan after being released by Texas in November 2014.

“Obviously this season he’s been fantastic,” Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. “He should be sitting on 10 wins right now. Two of the losses he had, he had us right there. He just matched up with a pitcher we couldn’t get much going against. Miles has been very good.”

Mikolas has made 11 quality starts, tied for fourth in the league. After starting the season 6-0, he has lost three of his five decisions in June despite posting five quality starts and giving up one earned run in two of his losses.

“A guy who just attacks the strike zone,” Matheny said.

“He has very good stuff. Doesn’t make a lot of mistakes. Not afraid to use his defense. He has been just an incredible surprise for us. What a great pickup for our organization and a salute to our scouts who are finding people like Miles who are out there.

“He figured something out while he was in Japan. The way he goes about his business, not just how he competes but how he prepares http://www.jaguarsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-quincy-williams-ii-jersey , you could see that being something that sticks around for awhile.”

Mikolas and Corbin are tied for second in the league in WHIP (0.99). Mikolas is sixth and Corbin ninth in ERA and innings pitched, and Mikolas is seventh and Corbin ninth in WAR.

Each has one of the five shutouts thrown in the NL this season. Washington’s Max Scherzer, Pittsburgh’s Jameson Taillon and Atlanta’s Mike Foltynewicz have the others.

Corbin, 6-3 with a 3.14 ERA, has made two straight quality starts, giving up only one run and in 13 innings, but did not receive a decision in either game. He had extra rest the last time through the rotation after pitching seven scoreless innings while striking out 12 in a no-decision at Pittsburgh, when he threw a season-high 102 pitches. He gave up one run in six innings against San Francisco on Friday, pitching on six days’ rest.

“He (gets) into trouble, doesn’t get rattled, and continues to pound the zone and get big outs. He’s done a very good job,” Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said.

Jeff Mathis, one of two healthy catchers on the Arizona roster with Alex Avila on the disabled list, will catch Corbin for the third straight start.

“I like the way Jeff gets Patrick to do certain things at certain times and shows confidence in certain pitches, and helps him execute by showing that confidence Ryquell Armstead Jersey ,” Lovullo said. “Jeff has such respect from anyone on this staff that when he asks for something they listen.”

Corbin has received 3.65 runs per start, tied for the third fewest in the league. He is 1-1 with a 4.50 ERA in four career starts against St. Louis and is 4-3 with a 3.69 ERA in 10 starts at home this sesaon.

Mikolas, who spent previous major league seasons with San Diego and Texas, has never started against Arizona and has given one run in 4 1/3 innings in two career relief appearances, a Justin Upton homer in 2012. This will be his first appearance at Chase Field.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Bills general manager Brandon Beane doesn’t believe in having too many offensive linemen.Buffalo’s backfield also got a little more crowded.A day after addressing the team’s biggest need by selecting defensive tackle Ed Oliver in the first round, Buffalo traded up two spots in the second round to draft Oklahoma offensive lineman Cody Ford 38th overall on Friday.The Bills added youth to an aging backfield, which includes LeSean McCoy and Frank Gore, by choosing Florida Atlantic running back Devin Singletary with the 74th pick.Buffalo then completed its second trade by moving back into the third round to select Mississippi tight end Dawson Knox with the 96th pick. The Bills gave up their two fourth-round selections, 112th and 131st overall, in a trade with Washington.If there was a major theme to Buffalo’s offseason, it was a continued effort to overhaul what had been a patchwork offensive line last year.Ford’s addition comes after the Bills signed six veteran linemen in free agency over the past two months, and he increases Buffalo’s number of linemen to a whopping 14.“We believe in winning up front. and there were frustrating times when some of the games we didn’t win last year, I think it came down to losing the battle up front,” Beane said.“I said http://www.jaguarsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-gardner-minshew-ii-jersey , if nothing else this year, we’re going to fix that,” he added. “There was an effort to fix a lot of that in free agency. But we also wanted to add youth.”The Bills were so high on Ford, who will be given a chance to compete for the starting job at right tackle, they dealt their second of two fifth-round draft picks — 158th overall — to move up two spots in a trade with the Oakland Raiders to select him.Listed at 6-foot-3 and 329 pounds, Ford earned first-team Big 12 honors with 14 starts at right tackle as a junior last season. He also has experience playing guard.Ford was initially projected to be a first-round selection and was still in Nashville, Tennessee, where the draft was held. He was watching the draft on television in his hotel room when his name was called.Though disappointed, Ford put a positive spin on having to wait an extra day.“You never know what’s going to happen,” he said. “This situation could be better than any situation in the first round.”After playing just three games before breaking his left leg in 2016, Ford returned to start 12 games at left guard in 2017. Last year, he was credited with a team-best 127 knockdowns while allowing just two sacks.“He had to overcome a ton here at OU,” Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley said in a release issued by the school. “He’s one of the nastiest offensive linemen I’ve ever coached, and I think he was probably the most dominant tackle in the country last year.”Buffalo closes the draft with four picks over the final for rounds on Saturday when the Bills are expected to address depth needs at linebacker and receiver, and special teams units.Running back wasn’t considered a major need either after the Bills signed Gore last month and T.J. Yeldon on Monday. However Christian Wilkins Jersey , Beane noted the 21-year-old Singletary adds an element of youth to a backfield with Gore set to turn 36 and McCoy 31 by the start of next season.Beane also made clear Singletary’s addition does in no way jeopardize McCoy’s status as the team’s workhorse.“LeSean McCoy is still here before you ask that question,” Beane said. “He’s still the starter.”In the 5-foot-7, 203-pound Singletary, the Bills added a dynamic, but undersized player whom Beane referred to as being “the funnest guy I’ve watched all year.”“Rare instincts for the position,” he added. “He’s a smaller guy. I wouldn’t call him a home-run hitter, but he can make guys miss in a phone booth.”At 5-7, 203 pounds, Singletary had 4,287 yards rushing and scored 66 touchdowns in 38 career games over three seasons. In 2017, he became the first Florida Atlantic player to earn All-American honors after he had 1,918 yards rushing and scored 32 TDs.Knox is listed at 6-4 and 254 pounds, and was limited to 39 catches for 605 yards in 18 games for Ole Miss.Beane believes Knox was under-utilized at college, and believes he has the potential to play a larger role in the receiving game.
