They say that momentum in baseball is tomorrow’s starting pitcher. That theory will get a test today as Phil Hughes, who is 3-1 with a 2.81 ERA in his past 4 starts facing a red-hot Angels team that has won 6 in a row. But the Angels have done it with pitching, scoring 26 runs over that span (4.33 R/G) while allowing just 10 (1.66 R/G). For his career, the Angels haven’t been a very good match up for Sir Phillip of Hughes. He’s 3-2 with a 7.61 ERA in 7 games (4 starts). In those 4 starts he’s had only had one quality outing (4-15-2010 5 IP 2 ER) while the rest have been pretty ugly, allowing 5 or more runs and pitching as few as 3.1 IP this past April. But its a small sample, so let’s see what Phil can do tonight.
