The last time Yanks starter Tanaka faced the Red Sox he was lasted for 12 runs in 3 1/3 frames nd the time before that six runs in 2/3 of an inning! Red Sox starter Porcello hasn’t fared much better allowing 14 runs in 11 innings over three starts this season versus NY. Is Zank getting down on the under with today’s pick?
Neither of tonight’s starters has pitched exceptional well as of late but Stroman did record a quality start against this very same team last time out. Get Dan’s take on the game and his free pick to play or fade.
The Braves are on a roll, winners of seven straight including last night’s series opener. That said the Nat’s have feasted on left-handed pitching tis season and did win both games that Keuchel started against them this season. Is that enough to back the visitor? Get Dan’s thoughts and free pick on the money line.
The Cubs open an important four-game set against the Brewers in Milwaukee tonight. Both teams are still in the race, so motivation shouldn’t be an issue for either club. The starters for this game Jose Quintana (CHC) and Chase Anderson (MIL) suggest a big edge for the Cubs. Get Dan’s take and free MLB pick.
The Twins are on a roll, winners of nine of their last ten. They’ve killed left-handed pitching this season and face one tonight with starter Eduardo Rodriguez going for the Red Sox. Can they take it to Boston again to a desperate Boston team? Read on to get Dan’s insight and MLB pick.
The Mets took the series opener and have now won six of the last seven meetings. Jacob deGrom gets the start for them while the Nats counter with Max Scherzer. Both starters have great back numbers against tonight’s projected line-up making this a tough call. Dan’s done the research and has come up with a play that he thinks holds the most value.
The runs may be hard to come by with Gerrit Cole and Adrian Houser getting the starts tonight. Cole has been close to unhittable allowing 11 hits, striking outs while walking two over his last three starts. Houser hasn’t been as dominant but has been consistent allowing exactly one earned run in each of his previous four starts. Zank digs into to all of the stats to formulate today’s pick.
