Pick: Florida Marlins -130 (Jimmy Boyd)
Without Chase Utley and Ryan Howard in the lineup, Florida gets the call tonight. Sanchez takes the mound for the Fish, and he has been dealing all season (2.60 home ERA). He enters tonight’s contest in top form, posting an ERA of only 1.71 over his last 3 starts. Sanchez has also had a lot of success against the Phillies recently, posting a 3-1 record with an ERA of only 1.95 against them since September 22, 2009. The Phillies have lost 6 of Kendrick’s 10 road starts this season, and he is carrying an ERA of 4.41 in those games. In fact, the Phillies are just 4-10 in his last 14 road starts. The Marlins are 8-2 in their last 10 games following a loss, and I’ll take them in this bounce back spot with the better starter on the hill.
Pick: Detroit Tigers -110 (Tom Freese)
Detroit starter Armondo Galarraga is 8-4 in his team starts this year. Galarraga has allowed 11 runs total in his last 4 starts. The Tigers are 21-6 their last 27 home games vs. a team with a winning record. Detroit is 13-6 their last 19 games. Chicago starter Edwin Jackson has lost his last 4 starts allowing 20 runs in his last 22.1 innings of work. The White Sox are 17-41 their last 58 road games vs. a team with a home win percentage of over 60% and they are 1-4 their last 5 games vs. AL Central teams. PLAY ON DETROIT (Galarraga vs. Jackson)
Pick: Los Angeles Angels -137 (Ross Benjamin)
The Orioles southpaw starter Brian Matusz has been absolutely horrible over his last 4-starts posting a whopping 12.46 ERA and 2.46 WHIP. Matusz is a miserable 1-9 in his home team-starts this season. The Angels starter Ervin Santana has posted a rock solid 2.73 ERA in 10-starts on the road this season. In spite of yesterday’s loss the Angels are 8-3 in the last 11 versus Baltimore. Play on the LA Angels as my free selection of the night.
