8* Run Line Philadelphia (9:40 ET): Please note that this is a run line play only where I am taking the Phillies +1.5. Here we go again. The Phils treated me to win yday, beating St. Louis 5-1. That happened to be just their second win in the last 15 games overall and they do (still) own the worst record in all of baseball. But, recently at least, they've been a lot more competitive than their record indicates. Before finally breaking through yday afternoon, they'd lost three straight extra inning games. Six of their last nine losses have come by the dreaded one-run margin. That doesn't even include a misleading 7-1 loss Tuesday (in 11 innings). So I feel comfortable here in saying that they'll do no worse than a one-run loss tonight.

Arizona has to feeling pretty good about itself right now. They return home after taking two of three from Colorado, scoring 26 runs the last two days. Overall, they've now won 9 of 10 and 12 of the last 14. Their current record (46-27) is the best in franchise history at this juncture of the season. They've won 11 of 12 here at Chase Field where they are 26-9 for the year, averaging 6.5 runs per game. However, coming off the strong showing in Colorado and a strong road trip overall, I feel they're ripe to be upset here. Starter Pat Corbin is arguably the weak link in the rotation as his ERA is 5.31 and his WHIP is 1.56. With matchups against Robbie Ray and Zack Greinke the next two days, this is - on paper - Philly's most "winnable" game of the series. 

The reason this line came out so late is that there's been a pitching change for the Phillies. Rookie Mark Leiter, Jr will be making his first big league start in tonight's series opener. He's worked out of the bullpen previously for the Phils and made three starts at Triple-A Lehigh Valley. Starting pitching has not been the issue for the Phillies this year as the rotation has delivered five consecutive quality starts. If the offense were able to get going - and against Corbin, I believe they will - they'll compete here and have a chance at pulling the big upset. 8* Run Line Philadelphia (+1.5)

10* Pittsburgh (8:15 ET): The Cardinals are finally back home, but that alone is unlikely to change what ills them. Take away games played against Philadelphia (worst team in baseball) and the Redbirds are a lousy 3-12 overall (5-1 vs. Philly). Furthermore, they lost to the Phillies yday afternoon by a score of 5-1. Now back in April, they did sweep the division rival Pirates, with all three games decided by the same 2-1 score. But that puts the revenge angle in play for this weekend's series and the Bucs come to town with that still on their minds. While it was only a four-game split w/ first place Milwaukee to start the week (on the road), the Pirates outscored the Brew Crew considerably in that series and one of the two losses (Weds) was by one run.

A significant edge for Pittsburgh in this game is getting to face Adam Wainwright. A Cy Young contender several seasons ago, Wainwright has fallen on "hard times" here in 2017. Of late, he has been nothing short of spectacularly awful w/ a 17.41 ERA and 2.515 WHIP his L3 starts. Those numbers are hard to put up, but twice during that stretch he's allowed nine runs while failing to make it out of the fourth inning. Last time out, he lasted only 1 2/3 innings and allowed three home runs (at Baltimore). I played against him there and will do so again tonight. His career ERA vs. Pittsburgh is only 4.33. He did not face them in the series back in April. While supporters may wish to point to a 2.88 ERA at home this year, his WHIP is 1.426, indicating he's been fortunate not to have allowed more runs. 

The Bucs counter w/ Jameson Taillon, who is obviously one of the great stories here in 2017. This will be his third start since returning from treatment for testicular cancer. Obviously, he'd like to resemble the pitcher we saw in his first start back (five shutout innings vs. Colorado) as opposed to the one we saw the last time out (allowed four runs to the Cubs). Though he was in the rotation for all of April, like Wainwright, he missed the earlier series between these two teams. He's faced St. Louis only one time, last year, and fared well by giving up only two runs in 5 IP. These two clubs are rated fairly evenly in my book and even w/ the homefield advantage this weekend, I'm not certainly the slumping Cardinals do all that well. Look for the Bucs to avenge that prior sweep here. 10* Pittsburgh

8* Run Line Minnesota (7:10 ET): Please note that this is a run line play only where I'm backing the Twins +1.5. Last week at this time, I wrote that it was "about time" for Cleveland to assert itself in the AL Central. The consensus top team in the division had gotten off to a pretty mediocre start to 2017 and as a result, trailed the surprising Twins for first place. But after a four-game sweep in Minnesota, the Tribe comes into this weekend w/ a 2.5-game edge in the standings. One thing that these two division foes have in common is that they each have played much better on the road than at home. In fact, both have sub-.500 home records. The revenge angle is obviously in play here and certainly the Twins are eager to reverse a 2-8 record vs. the Indians this season. I say they'll do no worse than a one-run loss tonight. 

Minnesota had to sit out a record-setting five-hour rain delay yday and all they got for their trouble was a 9-0 loss to the White Sox. But note they did take the first two games of that particular series, which was at home. While they've now lost 25 times this season at Target Field, they've tasted defeat only NINE times on the road! Only Houston can claim a better win percentage on the road throughout baseball. Clearly, the delay had an effect on them, starter Nik Turley in particular, last night as they allowed seven runs in the first three innings. With a taxed bullpen, the pressure is on tonight's starter Adaleberto Mejia, who is 0-3 his L3 starts. But outside of one poor showing at home vs. Seattle, Mejia has been fine this year. Last weekend, he allowed just two runs (both coming on solo HR's) to Cleveland in 4 2/3 IP. 

Despite having just 3-6 team start record overall, Mejia's numbers are remarkably similar to those of Indians' starter Trevor Bauer, who has managed a 7-7 TSR. The respective ERA's are virtually identical while Bauer only has a small edge in WHIP. Something to note here is that last night marked the 1st time all season that Minnesota was shut out. They average a healthy 4.8 rpg on the road. This will be their fourth time facing Bauer already this year and they've lost each of the first three matchups. However, that's odd considering Bauer was just 1-5 in 11 career starts against them coming into the year. His ERA remains 4.84 all-time against them. As alluded to above, Cleveland has a losing record here at Progressive Field (15-17) including a 2-6 mark as in the -175 to -250 range on the money line. 8* Run Line Minnesota (+1.5)

10* Over Pirates/Cardinals (7:15 ET): Pittsburgh cashed for me yday (as a +110 ML dog), gaining a measure of revenge for a sweep that took place here in St. Louis, back in April. All four games played between these two NL Central rivals have two things in common. One is that all four have been decided by exactly one run. Last night saw the Bucs score the GW run in the top of the ninth on a John Jaso HR. The earlier series saw St. Louis prevail all three times by the identical score of 2-1. So the second thing the four games have in common is that they've all stayed Under. That's a trend I expect to change tonight as we have two somewhat struggling starters on the mound & the Cardinals have largely been an Over team this year. It's been two weeks since the last went Under in B2B games. 

Looking at the season-long numbers of Pirates' starter Gerritt Cole, it sure seems odd that his 14 starts have resulted in an 11-3 Under mark. Yes, he is off B2B quality starts where both times he allowed just one run on three hits in seven innings of work. But, for the year, his ERA and WHIP are still 4.28 and 1.251 respectively. That, right there, should clue you in as to how poorly he'd pitched previously. In the two starts prior, Cole had given up 7 ER both times. Especially curious is the fact the Under is 6-1 in his 7 road starts as his ERA and WHIP in those games are 5.01 and 1.350 respectively. One can probably conclude that a lack of offensive support has often doomed Cole this year and that conclusion would be correct. But I can see the Pirates, who have performed better on the road than their record indicates (4.7 rpg scored), doing better offensively in this one. 

Over the last week, St. Louis has both scored and allowed 6.1 runs per game. So last night was definitely a departure. The game featured only 11 hits total w/ Pittsburgh scoring four times on just five hits of their own. But, again, tonight should be different. Lance Lynn starts for the Redbirds and while he's working on a 12 inning scoreless streak vs. Pittsburgh (shut them out in last series), his career ERA against them is only 4.45. Lynn also comes in off a poor outing, one that saw him allow FOUR home runs. In total, he allowed seven runs in 4 2/3 IP, the fifth straight start where he failed to last longer than 5 1/3 innings. 10* Over Pirates/Cardinals

10* San Francisco (7:15 ET): Not even a return home could cure what ills the Giants, at least last night, as they dropped the series opener to the Mets by a score of 11-4. It marked San Fran's 9th loss in the past 10 games and as discussed in an analysis earlier in the week (when I played AGAINST them Weds @ Atlanta), they now own not only MLB's second worst record (ahead of only the Phillies), but also it's second worst run differential as well (ahead of only San Diego). A lot of that is owed to a disastrous 13-30 mark on the road where they've been outscored by an almost mind-numbing 1.8 runs per game. At home, save for last night, they've at least been more competitive. It should be pointed out that the Mets hardly arrived in "fine form" either as they'd dropped seven of eight before Friday's win. 

It's a strong-looking pitching matchup tonight, at least on paper, as Johnny Cueto faces off w/ Jacob deGrom. But while both currently sport winning team start records this year, the numbers are hardly representative of dominant pitching. deGrom is off B2B outstanding outings against the Nats & the Cubs, but both were at home. Previously, he'd actually been rocked in two straight showings, giving up 15 ER in just 8 IP. He has a 5.19 ERA on the road this year. The Mets have been giving up a ton of runs in general away from Citi Field as they allow 5.9 per game. Part of that is also due to a bullpen which has a 6.44 ERA and 1.69 WHIP outside of Citi Field. 

A huge second inning (scored six times) is what propelled to Mets to victory last night. They would finish the game w/ 20 hits, more than they had in the previous three games combined. It, in fact, matched a season-high and was just the sixth time this month they had double-digit hits in a game. I realize that Cueto appears to be regressing this season, but I'm calling for a quality outing here as he's allowed 3 ER or less in four of his five previous starts, including the last one where he held Atlanta to just two runs and five hits in seven innings of work. Who's behind the plate (umpire) is a key component of MLB handicapping these days and here we have an ump (Marvin Hudson) who Cueto has never lost with. In fact, Cueto is 4-0 in five career starts w/ Hudson behind the plate and a 2.45 ERA. Speaking of behind the plate, catcher Buster Posey will be back in the lineup tonight after basically being given Friday off (only came in to pinch hit). 10* San Francisco

8* NY Yankees (1:05 ET): It took an additional inning, but the Yankees did dispose of the Rangers in Friday's opener, 2-1. I was of the opinion that this weekend would be kind to the team wearing pinstripes as they are still trying to recover from last week's somewhat disastrous 1-6 West Coast road trip. A return to the Bronx didn't result an immediate bounce back to the start the week as the Yanks dropped two of three to the Halos. But having already escaped Texas' best pitcher (Yu Darvish) on Friday, you have to believe it could be "smooth sailing" for the rest of the series as the Rangers won't be able to throw out anyone close to that caliber on the mound. 

A quick turnaround after a crushing loss last night's does the road team no favors here. The offense managed only four hits Friday evening and their only run scored came on a passed ball. But that lone run came in the top of the ninth, breaking a scorless tie, so they had to still be feeling pretty good about themselves at the time. But not for long. With only two outs to go, reliever Matt Bush gave up a home run to Brett Gardner in the bottom half of the ninth, forcing extra innings. From there, they would go on to lose in the next frame. Darvish was able to counteract the Rangers' inept offense last night, but I would not expect the same from Austin Bibens-Dirkx today. Dirks has not only allowed a HR in all three starts this year, but was tagged for five runs his last time out, at home vs. Toronto. The Yankees lineup, led by Aaron Judge, will be his toughest task yet. 

The Yankees have been a strong team all year in the Bronx, going 24-11 overall. Going into yday's game, they had outscored their opponents here by an average of 2.3 runs per game (3rd best average in MLB). That's played a significant role in the team being #3 overall in MLB in run differential, behind only Houston and the Dodgers. Even after the bad road trip, it was a shock to see them drop two of three here to the Angels to start the week, especially considering they were north of -200 on the ML for all three games. By comparison, this price is a downright bargain. Now some of that has to do w/ Luis Cessa making just his second start of 2017. But I've got enough confidence in him facing a Rangers lineup which has barely cracked .220 for the season on the road. The Yankees' lineup is the one far less likely to be held in check for a second straight game. 8* NY Yankees
