We were entertained by the rockets’ red glare as these pitchers were having their own pyrotechnic shows from the hill.


1)       Felix Hernandez Sea


Hernandez tossed the ball hard for nine innings, only gave up two hits, and recorded 11 strikeouts on route to picking up the deserved victory.


In Week 13, he was dominating, and the Monday that followed Independence Day he was equally good. However, his bullpen gave up the win he deserved.


The popular Seattle ace is 6-5 with 122 strikeouts and a 3.01 ERA for the season



2)       Adam Wainwright StL


Wainwright threw 16 innings from the mound last week and had 16 strikeouts with only three walks. His starts gave him two wins and a 0.59 ERA.


Last Sunday, he threw a complete game and picked up the victory.


The Cardinals starting pitcher is one of the best right now and doesn’t show any signs of slowing down.


He is currently sitting pretty with a 12-5 record and a 2.24 ERA with 123 strikeouts for the season.



3)       Jered Weaver LAA


Weaver sat down six and allowed only two hits, giving him the win.


The box score looks great, but he did encounter a minor hiccup when he had trouble retiring the last few batters he faced.


He is 8-4 with 130 strike outs and a 2.97 ERA for the season.



4)       Matt Capps Was


Capps picked up two wins in three innings of relief. He garnered a 0.00 ERA and only gave up two hits.


Capps has had five straight scoreless appearances.


His season has been decent, with a 3-3 record, 23 saves, 32 strikeouts, and a 3.26 ERA.



5)       Huston Street Col


Street spent six innings on the hill last week and struck out six with no walks and only two hits. His performance gave him two saves and a 0.00 ERA.


The Colorado hurler’s fantasy ownership increased about five percent with his recent outings. 


He is 1-1 with two saves and 8 strikeouts for the season.



6)       Matt Latos SD


Latos worked eight innings to get the win. He struck out eight and only walked two.


Latos and Jimenez are tied for the most shutout innings thus far.


He is 9-4 with a 2.62 ERA with 91 strikeouts for the season.


7)       Tommy Hanson Atl


Hanson played some catch with McCann and earned a victory after six innings on the mound. He sent eight back to the dugout on strikes and only gave up two walks.


He is 8-5 with a 4.19 ERA and 98 strikeouts for the season.



8)       Roy Oswalt Hou


Oswalt threw for seven innings on the mound and struck out seven with two walks and only three hits. His performance gave him the win.


The Houston starting pitcher may be wearing a different uniform after the all-star break. If Texas picks him up, he won’t need to travel far for his new assignment.


The Astros haven’t helped Oswalt’s record of 5-10 despite his ERA of 3.32 with 104 strikeouts.



9)       Brad Lincoln Pit


Lincoln had a nice outing with six strikeouts and one walk in seven innings. He gave up no earned runs and picked up the win.


He did very well in week 13, but he followed it up with his worst outing of the season this past Tuesday.


The Pirates starting pitcher is a huge risk. Fantasy owners should stay clear until he provides more consistent performances.


He is 1-3 with a 5.25 ERA for the season.



10)   Bronson Arroyo Cin


Arroyo had six solid innings with three strike outs and two walks, giving him a 0.00 ERA and the win.


The Reds hurler gained some fantasy ownership as a result of this performance. He is up five percent in most leagues.


Arroyo is available around 50 percent in most leagues. He would be a nice pickup if your fantasy staff has fallen by the wayside.


He is 9-4 with a 3.04 ERA with only 54 strikeouts this season.
