The week started poorly with two bad losses to the Mets (1-5 and 0-9). They rebounded to win the final game of the series (6-0), but then came home to drop the first game of a four-game series with the woeful Marlins (1-3). (That’s 2 total runs in 3 losses.) They bounced back again with 3 consecutive wins. They got great pitching in games two and four from Jerad Eickhoff (seven, shutout inning in a 4-0 win) and Zach Eflin (complete game, 5-1 win). Jake Arrieta battled and survived another bullpen implosion in Saturday’s 12-9 win.
