Career stats

Lohse appears to have recovered from an ankle injury that cost him one start in mid-August and limited his effectiveness in a couple others. In his last start last Friday against Cincinnati, he allowed two runs on five hits in 6 2/3 innings.

Miller picked up his 10th win on Saturday, going six innings and giving up one run. Miller has given up just three runs in his last 27 innings, a streak that coincides with his ability to mix in his secondary pitches with his fastball.

Career stats

Holmberg earned his first big league win Saturday over the Brewers behind the strength of a good changeup. Despite not being overpowering, his 86-89 fastball was spotted well and looked tougher in conjunction with the offspeed pitch.

Career stats

Due to arm fatigue, Lackey had his scheduled start skipped on Tuesday and was given an extra three days' rest. He lasted only two innings in a start against the Reds on Sept. 10 due to an ejection stemming from complaints about balls/strikes.

Career stats

Leake crossed the 200-inning mark for the first time in his career in a loss Sunday at Milwaukee. Citing the feeling of a dead arm, Leake struggled with command and location, yanking his pitches out of the strike zone.

Career stats

Wacha will be pitching after a 10-day layoff that was built in after growing concerns about the lack of command he showed upon returning from a right shoulder injury. Wacha should be free to push toward 90 pitches if all goes right.

Wood scattered three hits over six scoreless innings in his last outing vs. the Reds, which was a big improvement after allowing seven runs over 1 2/3 innings in his previous start. He was miffed because he walked three.
