He has been sharp in all three playoff appearances, allowing just three earned runs on 12 hits in 19 innings.
The model also knows Philadelphia is expected to start right-hander Zach Wheeler (12-7, 2.82 ERA). He took the loss in Game 2, allowing four earned runs on six hits with three walks and three strikeouts in six innings. He was outstanding in a 2-0 Game 1 win over the San Diego Padres in the American League Championship Series.
