Mat Latos allowed three runs on eight hits and three walks with seven strikeouts over five innings against the Rockies on Sunday.
Latos settled for his second straight no-decision on Sunday, despite having now allowed three runs or less in none of his last 10 outings. He remains 4-3 with a 3.10 ERA and 1.02 WHIP through 12 starts while owning a sub-par 54:21 K:BB rate over 78.1 innings. Although he has pitched well this season, Latos has no strikeout upside at this point in his career, making him a solid complimentary piece to help out in both ERA and WHIP moving forward. Expect to see Latos back on the mound this weekend against the Braves.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Jahlil Okafor scored 14 points (7-18 FGA) with nine rebounds, three blocks, one steal and one assist in 30 minutes on Monday for the 76ers.
Concern came when Okafor switched to the four from the five as the guarding of stretch fours could cost him rebounds and make run more than he typically does on the block, but with the early results in, it seems that those concerns are not to be worried about. Following the best game of his young career on Saturday, Monday's outing was another very solid effort from the Duke product coming close to yet another double-double and contributing in every category. Now that we are passed the typical college season in terms of games played, it's good to see that the rookie is keeping his production steady. He should be a starter every night in all formats.
