The Rubber Match
Heilman, the homebody, is to face the Cards, a team that still plays better on the road than most teams. Heilman has a 3-0 record at Shea in two starts and one relief appearance. His home ERA is 0.47, the lowest home ERA in the National League among pitchers who have thrown at least 19 innings at home.
If he wins again today, there should no longer be a discussion about whether to move him to the pen or not when Ishii returns back.
