Kyle Gibson (5-2 W-L, 3.44 ERA) vs. Shaun Anderson (0-1 W-L, 31.50 ERA) 

Kyle Gibson has proved himself as a reliable starting pitcher for the St. Louis Cardinals this season, compiling an outstanding record of 5-2 and an ERA of 3.44 across 83.2 innings pitched. His ability to control opponents is evidenced by a WHIP rating of just 1.2; with 73 strikeouts against 31 walks showing his excellent control on the mound and command for his command ratio – especially key during away games where maintaining composure can often prove pivotal in victory or defeat.

Shaun Anderson has had limited exposure this season with the Miami Marlins and has not fared particularly well, posting an alarming ERA of 31.50 from only two innings pitched. While only allowing 10 hits and 1 homer to indicate some issues with pitch placement/selection issues. Anderson’s WHIP stands at an alarmingly high 5, prompting questions as to his effectiveness at MLB level; also only recording 1 strikeout makes his ability to challenge batters questionable, potentially leaving the Marlins vulnerable every time he takes to the mound.
