    Monday's Diamond Notes
    July 17, 2017

    Hottest team: Mariners (4-0 past four overall, 6-1 past seven road games)


    The Mariners find themselves 16 1/2 games behind the Astros for second place in the American League West, but this is still an important series for them. They cannot afford to lose ground to the likes of the Angels and Rangers in their division, as well as the Twins, Rays and Royals, for their chance at a wild card. The Mariners have rolled to four straight wins, including three in a row at Chicago White Sox, pulling even in the run differential department. They're trending in the right direction, but that could all potentially fall apart in Houston. The M's are just 2-5 over their past seven against teams with a winning record, although they're 5-2 in Ariel Miranda's past seven road outings and 9-4 in his past 13 against teams with a winning overall mark. Seattle might also have a difficult time against Lance McCullers Jr., as he is 7-2 with a 3.05 ERA overall this season, posting 106 strikeouts over 91 1/3 innings. That includes in his most recent meeting with the M's on June 24 at Safeco Field.


    Coldest team: Indians (0-4 past four games overall)

    The Indians have stumbled out of the gate in the second half, as they were swept by the Athletics in Oakland by a combined score of 17-6. That includes a loss by All-Star Corey Kluber and fireballer Carlos Carrasco, so things aren't exactly trending in the right direction at the moment for the defending American League champions. However, the lack of travel for their next interleague series, a quick jaunt across the Oakland Bay Bridge, should help them feel better and a little rested. They are just 2-10 over their past 12 games against the National League West and 3-14 in the past 17 interleague battles. They're also a dismal 1-7 across their past eight interleague road outings.


    Hottest pitcher: Marcus Stroman, Blue Jays (9-5, 3.28 ERA)


    Stroman takes the hill Monday night in Fenway Park against the Red Sox in an important series. The Blue Jays are in the basement ofthe American League East, but they're just nine games back of first place. If they're able to make some noise, they might just be buyers and not sellers at the non-waiver trade deadline. Stroman looked great in his last outing against the Astros on July 8, allowing just one run and six hits with three walks and six strikeouts over seven innings to win his ninth game. He will be well rested and ready to go. That's good, too, because he was rocked in his first appearance against the Red Sox back on April 18. He gave up six earned runs and 11 hits over just 4 2/3 innings in a loss.


    Coldest pitcher: Matt Moore, Giants (3-9, 6.04 ERA)


    The Giants send the left-hander Moore to the hill on Monday to face the ice-cold Indians. Perhaps that will get him untracked, or perhaps facing Moore is the elixir to cure Cleveland's offensive ills. He has served up 15 home runs over 98 1/3 innings across 18 starts this season and the opposition is hitting a robust .307 against him while he has an unsavory 1.69 WHIP overall. Moore has been a little more respectable at home, posting a 2-5 record with a 4.44 ERA over 48 2/3 innings across eight home outings. However, he is a dismal 1-6 with an 8.39 ERA in 10 starts under the lights this season.

    Biggest UNDER run: Pirates (5-1 past six, 13-2-1 past 16 overall)



    The Pirates have been a total bettors' dream lately, as the 'under' has been nearly automatic for them lately. The under is 4-0-1 in their past five at home against left-handed starting pitchers, 16-5-2 in their past 23 at home and 22-6-2 over the past 30 games overall. In addition, the Bucs have started out slowly in series openers, posting a 6-1 under mark in their past seven Game 1s. The Brewers have been on an under tear lately, too, going 4-1 in their past five and 5-2-1 in their past eight on the road vs. RHP. In addition, Brent Suter has fit right in, with the under going 4-0 over his past four assignments. In addition, the under is 15-4-2 over the past 21 meetings in this series.


    Biggest OVER run: Athletics (7-3 past 10 overall)


    'Over' and Oakland are two things that generally do not come to mind immediately, but the Athletics have been doing a good job hitting the over lately. They averaged 6.0 runs per game over their final two outings against the Indians to hit the over, and it has hit in seven of the past 10 overall. The over is also 5-1 in Oakland's past six at home, and 6-1 in their past seven at O.co Coliseum against American League clubs. They'll be facing a Rays squad which has posted an 8-3-2 mark against the under over the past 13 road outings. However, Tampa Bay has a perfect 7-0 'over' mark in Jake Odorizzi's past seven outings, including 4-1 in his past five road assignments.

    Matchup to watch: Rockies vs. Padres

    The Rockies host the Padres, looking to get back on track after an ice-cold stretch lately. Colorado has won just six times over their past 21 games overall, and they're 1-10 in their past 11 divisional games. However, the Rockies are 4-0 in German Marquez's past four home starts, and 8-3 in his past 11 overall. The Rox are also an impressive 11-5 over their past 16 home games and 21-9 in their past 30 to kick off a new series. Conversely, the Padres have won just once over the past six road assignments for Luis Perdomo, and they're 0-4 in his past four inside the division. San Diego is also 2-6 in their past eight trips to Coors Field with the 'under' cashing in each of the past five.


    Betcha didn’t know: The biggest reason for the failures of the Tigers this season has been their inability to win inside the divsion, as well as on the road. Detroit is just 2-8 over their past 10 road outings and 1-4 in their past five road games against teams with a winning home mark. Jordan Zimmermann hasn't been much help in turning those kind of numbers around, as the Tigers are just 1-5 over his past six outings, 1-9 in his past 10 road starts and 2-7 across his past nine assignments against divisional foes. On the flip side, the Royals are an impressive 11-1 over Jason Vargas' past 12 starts against a club with a losing record and 21-6 across his past 27 outings overall.


    Biggest public favorite: Astros (-215) vs. Mariners


    Biggest public underdog: Rays (+110) at Athletics


    Biggest line move: Astros (-200 to -215) vs. Mariners

    Mets could be sellers at trade deadline
    July 17, 2017



    When the season began, the New York Mets thought they'd be fighting for first place this time of year. Instead, they could be one of baseball's busiest sellers before the July 31 trade deadline.


    Surprisingly poor pitching and another string of injuries to top players have put the underperforming Mets (41-48) in an unexpected position: Coming off consecutive playoff appearances, they are 9 1/2 games out of a wild-card spot. Shipping off veterans like Jay Bruce and Addison Reed to legitimate contenders might be the only way they impact the pennant race.


    ''You can't just throw up the white flag and say the season's over. We can catch up, we can get back in the hunt and that's our plan. But we've got to go play well,'' manager Terry Collins said Sunday before a 13-4 loss to Colorado. ''I don't think for any stretch of the imagination that this is over yet.''


    Two days earlier, as the Mets came out of the All-Star break, general manager Sandy Alderson acknowledged ''things would have to go exceedingly well'' during a 10-game homestand for the club to ''change direction.''


    That sounds like a realistic front office resigned to procuring what it can for several pending free agents.


    So while the rebuilding Chicago White Sox (Jose Quintana) and budget-minded Oakland Athletics (Ryan Madson, Sean Doolittle) have already cashed in assets, the Mets might not be far behind.


    Need a dangerous bat in the outfield with postseason experience? Bruce and Curtis Granderson fit the bill.


    A quality reliever who can set up or close? Reed should draw plenty of interest.


    A first baseman with power and a discerning eye at the plate? Lucas Duda.


    All of them, in addition to injured second baseman Neil Walker, make sizable salaries and are eligible for free agency following the World Series.


    Then there's switch-hitting infielder Asdrubal Cabrera, who requested a trade (but then backed off) after getting shifted from shortstop to second base recently. His contract includes an $8.5 million club option next year with a $2 million buyout.


    None of those players is likely to fetch a huge return by himself, but if the Mets move more than one it could collectively benefit the future of a team that plans to be back in the race next season. To accomplish that, New York will need to rebuild a thin bullpen and fill several slots in the everyday lineup. And if nothing else, this year has showed the Mets are in dire need of depth and live arms at the upper levels of their farm system.


    New York took two of three over the weekend from the skidding Rockies, who lead the chase for the second NL wild card. On deck, a four-game series against St. Louis - another team ahead of the Mets.


    If things don't go ''exceedingly well'' at Citi Field, major changes could be coming soon.


    A few other developments around baseball:


    DODGERS DOMINATE



    Justin Turner is batting .374, Alex Wood is 11-0 and Los Angeles (64-29) has won nine straight and 29 of 33 to build the best record in the big leagues heading into a two-game interleague series at the last-place White Sox beginning Tuesday night. The Dodgers completed a three-game sweep in Miami over the weekend and opened a 10 1/2-game lead in the NL West. They are 35 games above .500 for the first time since 1977 and have the franchise's best record through 93 games since 1955.


    DAZZLING DEBUT


    Quintana struck out a season-high 12 over seven sharp innings in his first game for the Chicago Cubs, who finished a three-game sweep at Baltimore with an 8-0 victory Sunday. The defending World Series champions hit 10 homers during the series and climbed over .500 for the first time since June 29. Are they finally poised to make their move?

    WELCOME BACK



    Cleveland manager Terry Francona returned to the bench, only to see his team get swept in three games at last-place Oakland. Francona missed six games when he underwent a procedure for an irregular heartbeat. He had also been scheduled to manage the American League in Tuesday night's All-Star Game victory, but had to skip it. The Indians have lost four straight for the first time since 2015, and their AL Central lead was shaved to 1+ games over Minnesota. Next up, the defending AL champs head across the San Francisco Bay for a three-game series against the struggling Giants.


    RIVALRY RENEWED


    Stingy pitching was on display as the AL East-leading Red Sox split a compelling and tiring four-game series with the Yankees. Boston outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. went over the bullpen wall in the triangle at Fenway Park to steal a home run from major league leader Aaron Judge. New York was shut out for the first time all season but also won consecutive games for the first time since a six-game spurt from June 7-12. Red Sox batters are 3 for 58 with runners in scoring position against the Yankees this season. Meanwhile, it seems nobody has noticed, but the surprising Rays have moved just ahead of New York into second place in the division, three games behind Boston.

    OUTSIDE THE PARK



    Rockies leadoff man Charlie Blackmon hustled around the bases for an inside-the-park home run Sunday - even though replays showed his drive actually cleared the fence before caroming back onto the field. Blackmon became the first player with two inside-the-park homers in one season since Colorado's Brandon Barnes in 2014.


    LINE OF THE WEEK


    Cody Bellinger became the first Dodgers rookie to hit for the cycle Saturday in a 7-1 win over the Marlins. Bellinger singled in the first inning, launched a two-run homer in the third, added an RBI double in the fourth and hit his second career triple on the first pitch of the seventh. ''In this organization there is so much history,'' he said. ''To see my name on some of that is pretty humbling.''

    MLB roundup: Stanton belts two homers in Marlins' walkoff win
    July 17, 2017



    MIAMI -- Giancarlo Stanton slugged two homers, and Dee Gordon hit a walk-off single in the 10th inning to lead the Miami Marlins to a 6-5 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday.


    With one out in the 10th, Derek Dietrich tripled off Phillies reliever Mark Leiter Jr. (1-2). After two intentional walks loaded the bases, pinch hitter A.J. Ellis grounded to shortstop, and Philadelphia got a force play at the plate. Gordon then singled to right-center to win the game.


    Marlins reliever Drew Steckenrider (1-1) pitched one scoreless inning for his first major league victory.


    Mariners 9, Astros 7 (10th inning)


    HOUSTON -- Kyle Seager and Danny Valencia clubbed back-to-back home runs in the 10th inning as Seattle completed a wild win over Houston.


    Seager, who hit his 13th homer, and Valencia, who smacked his 11th, completed a four-homer night for the Mariners by going deep off Astros left-hander Tony Sipp (0-1).


    The late power surge made a winner of Mariners right-hander Yovani Gallardo (4-7), who benefited from three strong defensive plays by shortstop Jean Segura after Houston loaded the bases in the ninth.


    Nationals 6, Reds 1


    CINCINNATI -- Bryce Harper and Ryan Zimmerman hit first-inning homers, and Washington completed a four-game sweep of Cincinnati.


    Harper hit a three-run homer and Zimmerman added a solo shot as Washington scored five times in the opening inning off Scott Feldman (7-7).


    Stephen Strasburg (10-3) struck out 11 and allowed one run and four hits in seven innings.


    Blue Jays 4, Red Sox 3


    BOSTON -- Steve Pearce hit a solo homer in the second inning and delivered the tiebreaking single in the eighth as Toronto edged Boston.


    Kendrys Morales added a two-run double for Toronto, while starter Marcus Stroman allowed three unearned runs and five hits in 6 2/3 innings.


    Mookie Betts hit an RBI single and Dustin Pedroia added a run-scoring double for Boston. Red Sox starter Eduardo Rodriguez allowed three runs and six hits in 5 1/3 innings after being activated from the disabled list.


    Orioles 3, Rangers 1


    BALTIMORE -- Seth Smith hit a go-ahead homer in the seventh inning and Baltimore beat Texas.


    Chris Tillman allowed one run and two hits in six innings while Ruben Tejada and Jonathan Schoop drove in the other Baltimore runs.


    Andrew Cashner allowed three runs and six hits in 6 2/3 innings and Jonathan Lucroy drove in the only Texas run.

    Pirates 4, Brewers 2



    MILWAUKEE -- Gregory Polanco went 4-for-4 with a pair of RBI doubles and Pittsburgh beat Milwaukee.


    Chad Kuhl allowed two runs and four hits in 5 2/3 innings as Pittsburgh won for the eighth time in 10 games.


    Orlando Arcia and Stephen Vogt drove in the runs for Milwaukee.


    Cardinals 6, Mets 3


    NEW YORK -- Tommy Pham hit a three-run homer as St. Louis scored six runs in the sixth inning and beat New York.


    Paul DeJong added a two-run homer and homered for the fourth straight game against the Mets. Adam Wainwright added an RBI double and allowed three runs in 5 2/3 innings.


    Michael Conforto and Lucas Duda hit solo homers for New York.


    Twins 4, Yankees 2


    MINNEAPOLIS -- Eduardo Escobar snapped a tie with a pinch-hit RBI single in the eighth inning, and Minnesota held off New York.


    Eddie Rosario added an RBI single for the Twins, who are 7-19 all-time at Target Field against the Yankees.


    Rookie Garrett Cooper had three hits and Austin Romine hit an RBI double for New York.


    Tigers 10, Royals 2


    KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Jordan Zimmermann picked up his first victory in seven starts, and Nicholas Castellanos and Mikie Mahtook hit two-run homers as Detroit beat sputtering Kansas City.


    Zimmermann (6-7) allowed one run on seven hits over 6 2/3 innings. He walked none, hit a batter and struck out seven.


    Ian Kinsler, Mahtook and Victor Martinez had three hits apiece for the Tigers.


    Rockies 9, Padres 6


    DENVER -- Colorado scored seven times in the first three innings, then held on for a win over San Diego.


    Trevor Story drove in three runs, and Charlie Blackmon hit his fourth leadoff homer among three hits for the Rockies, who posted consecutive victories for the first time since a six-game winning streak June 20.


    Colorado's Gerardo Parra hit his eighth home run, giving him seven straight games with at least one RBI and 11 in that span since coming off the disabled list.


    Cubs 4, Braves 3


    ATLANTA -- Jon Lester bounced back from the worst start of his career to throw seven strong innings, helping Chicago win its fourth consecutive game.


    Lester (6-6) allowed one run on three hits with one walk and six strikeouts. Lester retired the last 10 batters he faced. In his prior outing, he was tagged for 10 runs in two-thirds of an inning against the Pittsburgh Pirates on July 9.

    Rays 3, Athletics 2



    OAKLAND, Calif. -- Steven Souza Jr. and Evan Longoria hit solo homers and Tampa Bay edged Oakland.

    Tuesday’s six-pack


    Odds to win the British Open this week……..


    12-1— Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth


    15-1— Sergio Garcia, Rickie Fowler, Jon Rahm


    20-1— McIlroy-Matsuyama-Rose-Fleetwood


    25-1— Jason Day, Henrik Stenson


    30-1— Scott-Koepka-Mickelson-Casey


    40-1— Thomas-Ossthuizen-Pieters-Noren


    ************************


    Tuesday’s List of 13: Nobody asked me, but…….

    13) Carolina Panthers fired their GM Monday, 8 days before training camp opens. Panthers had a 40-23-1 record while Dave Gettleman was the GM, playing in the Super Bowl two years ago.


    Former Panthers Steve Smith/DeAngelo Williams openly gloated about the firing on Twitter. Gettleman was (obviously) not well-liked by the players on the Panthers.


    Must be an interesting story behind all this, then again, Carolina owner Jerry Richardson also fired his two sons when they worked for the Panthers.


    12) Kansas City Chiefs fired their GM last month; also odd timing. You would think this is a down time for NFL teams, just before camp starts, yet two teams canned their GMs. Go figure.


    11) Houston Rockets’ owner Leslie Alexander put the team up for sale Monday; he’s owned the Rockets for 24 years. No one saw this coming, not even people who work for the team.


    Rockets just traded for Chris Paul, gave James Harden a huge contract extension- they’re the most popular NBA team in Asia (because of Yao Ming) so that inflates the value of the franchise a decent amount. Last thing I saw had them ranked the 7th-most valuable NBA franchise.


    10) Red Sox have been shut out eight times this year; five of the eight games were Rick Porcello starts. Boston-Royals-Angels-Giants have all been shut out eight times, most in MLB this year.


    9) As of late Sunday night, Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas had taken 56 bets on whether or not the Lakers will make the playoffs this coming season. All 56 bets were “yes”.


    8) Nationals 6, Reds 1— Washington sweeps 4-game series; they had a 5-0 lead in all four games. Daniel Murphy scored from 2nd on a sac fly in this game- the RF made a lunging catch in right-center, fell down, and Murphy kept going. Rough weekend for Cincinnati.


    7) Milwaukee Bucks’ prospect Thon Maker fouled out of a 40:00 summer league game, when the foul limit was 10 per player. Thats not easy to do.


    6) Mets’ TV analyst Keith Hernandez made a cryptic comment during Sunday’s game. His partner Gary Cohen was talking about manager Terry Collins, and Hernandez chimed in, “Terry has a lot more to deal with than the fans know about.” Wonder what he meant?


    5) Golden State Warriors’ over/under win total for next season: 66.5.


    4) Redskins’ QB Kirk Cousins will play under the franchise tag again this year, will try to get by on his $23.94M salary and likely will be playing elsewhere (SF?) in 2018.


    3) Indiana’s new basketball coach Archie Miller signed three top 100 recruits over the weekend, and kept the three recruits Tom Crean had coming in to Bloomington this fall. Miller is a very good coach.


    2) Texas Rangers were 36-11 in one-run games last year, finished 95-67, won the AL West by nine games……..this year, the Rangers are 7-15 in one-run games, are 45-46, 16.5 games behind the first-place Astros. Little things make a big difference.


    1) Roger Federer banked $2,880,240 for winning Wimbledon; his on-court winnings in his great career have now grown to $107,325,425. That is before endorsements.


    By way of comparison, Dwight Howard has earned just around $190,000,000 in salary in his career.

    MLB notebook: Pineda to undergo Tommy John surgery
    July 17, 2017



    New York Yankees right-hander Michael Pineda will undergo Tommy John surgery after getting a second opinion for a torn ulnar collateral ligament, the team announced Monday.


    Pineda had the UCL injury in his right elbow examined by the Cincinnati Reds medical director, Dr. Timothy Kremchek, who agreed with the original recommendation of Tommy John surgery from the Yankees head team physician, Dr. Christopher Ahmad.


    The 28-year-old Pineda is scheduled to undergo the surgery on Tuesday in Cincinnati, to be performed by Dr. Kremchek.


    Pineda's last start was July 5 when he gave up nine hits, including three homers, and five runs in three innings against the Toronto Blue Jays.


    --The Washington Nationals called up right-hander Jacob Turner from Triple-A Syracuse.


    Turner, 26, returns to the Nationals for his second major league assignment of the season. He went 2-3 with a 5.08 ERA in 39 innings in 18 games (two starts) during his first stint with Washington.


    Turner reported to Triple-A after being outrighted on July 3 and went 0-1 with an 11.74 ERA in two starts.


    The Nationals also transferred right-hander Koda Glover to the 60-day disabled list.


    --The Boston Red Sox activated left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez from the 10-day disabled list ahead of his start against the Toronto Blue Jays at Fenway Park.


    Rodriguez, 24, returned from his injury rehab assignment with Triple-A Pawtucket.


    Rodriguez was placed on the 10-day disabled list on June 2 with a right knee subluxation. He made one rehab start with Double-A Portland and two with Pawtucket, most recently allowing only one run with seven strikeouts and no walks in 6 1/3 innings on July 9 against Buffalo.


    Rodriguez has made 10 starts for Boston this season, going 4-2 with a 3.54 ERA in 61 innings while striking out 65 and limiting opposing hitters to a .222 batting average. He compiled a career-long four-game winning streak in seven starts from April 23 to May 26, compiling a 2.25 ERA.

    LEADING OFF: Kershaw, Dodgers roll, Colon makes Twins debut
    July 17, 2017


    A look at what's happening all around the majors Tuesday:



    DAZZLING DODGERS


    Clayton Kershaw pitches for the first time since the All-Star break, trying extend a couple of big winning streaks for the Dodgers. LA has the best record in the big leagues and will go for its 10th straight victory when it visits the Chicago White Sox. Kershaw tops the majors with a 14-2 record - the NL West leaders have won the lefty's last 13 starts. Kershaw has never faced the White Sox on the road.


    WELCOME BACK

    Bartolo Colon makes his debut with Minnesota, joining his 10th major league team. He'll start for the contending Twins against the Yankees at Target Field.


    The burly 44-year-old was released two weeks ago by Atlanta after 13 starts and an unsightly 8.14 ERA. He had a rocky start last week with Triple-A Rochester, giving up four runs in 3 2/3 innings, but the Twins have struggled badly to fill the fifth spot in the rotation. Colon will be the 11th pitcher to start a game for them this season. He made his big league debut in 1997, when 60-year-old Twins manager Paul Molitor was still playing.

    MARTE RETURNS



    Outfielder Starling Marte rejoins the Pirates after serving an 80-game suspension. A two-time Gold Glove winner in left field, he returns to play vs. Milwaukee at PNC Park. Marte began the year in center field - without him, Andrew McCutchen moved back to his original spot. Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle intends to keep McCutchen in center.

    NEW NATS



    Relievers Ryan Madson and Sean Doolittle join the Nationals in Los Angeles for the start of a series against the Angels. The NL East leaders acquired the duo from Oakland on Sunday. They'll try to shore up a bullpen that's been Washington's weak spot. The Nationals are coming off a four-game sweep of the Reds in Cincinnati.


    CUT SHORT


    Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda is set to have Tommy John surgery, likely putting him out of action until at least late next year. The 28-year-old righty is 8-4 with a 4.39 ERA in 17 starts. He is eligible for free agency after this season.

    Tuesday's Best Bet
    July 18, 2017



    Tuesday MLB Best Bet (8:10 p.m. ET)
    Seattle Mariners vs. Houston Astros


    BetOnline.ag - Odds: Seattle (+166), Houston (-176); Total set at 9.5



    The Mariners and Astros had a wild opener to this series last night as it was a back-and-forth slugfest that needed extra innings to be decided. The slugging didn't stop there either as Seattle opened the 10th inning with a pair of HR's to eventually earn a 9-7 victory over the AL West leaders and would love to clinch a series win tonight.


    These games are much more important to the Mariners who are in the thick of the Wild Card chase, as opposed to Houston who already has the AL West division locked up. That motivation angle is something to always consider with Houston games going forward, and with their All-Star shortshop Carlos Correa leaving last night's game early with a hand injury and a potential trip to the DL looming, the health angle is another one to consider with the Astros over the next few months.


    Staying healthy for a deep playoff run is Houston's primary concern these days and although it's more of a “big picture” type deal, bettors can definitely use it to their advantage in the right spots. Is tonight one of those spots?


    Odds per - BetOnline.ag


    Best Bet: Seattle ML (+166)


    Although I've already touched on a few angles that could work negatively for Houston tonight, they are simply additional factors behind the basis of this ML play on Seattle. The Mariners have come out of the break on fire with a 4-0 SU record and they've done it despite some mediocre performances from their starting pitchers.


    Tonight's starter Sam Gaviglio had a rough ending to the first half of his season with an 0-3 SU run over his final three starts (one of those vs. Houston), but the time off should have helped and he'll likely get much more support from his teammates who are playing much better at the moment.


    Even in the 5-2 loss to Houston that Gaviglio started at the end of June, he didn't pitch horribly as he went six full innings in the start, and that's something only James Paxton can say he's done for Seattle since they returned from last week's time off. If Gaviglio can accomplish a similar feat tonight and the Mariners offense continues to cash in on their opportunities, they'll definitely have a better chance to win this evening than this line suggests.


    Speaking of that Seattle offense, they get to face a guy in Brad Peacock who has filled in admirably for Houston this year with all their pitching injuries. However, Peacock's “average” numbers are continually masked by the astronomical run support he's gotten from his teammates this year.


    Despite what the 7-1 SU record and 2.63 ERA suggests on Peacock, he's nowhere near as good as that and if it weren't for the 8.3 runs/game he's gotten in support, things would be a lot worse. Houston has scored 16 and 19 runs alone in his last two outings and when your teammates have clinched the game early like that, strong pitching statistics are sure to follow.


    I say that because when a pitcher is up big, he can simply go out there and attack the strikezone and force the guys to hit it all over the park. Gone are the worries of trying to pick corners on key guys in tight spots – which leads to walks – and there are no stressful moments for the guy on the mound. That's the type of ease Peacock has been pitching with his last few outings and it's definitely worked to his advantage.


    However, with the way the Mariners have been playing of late, and the likelihood of Correa on the bench regardless of a DL spot or not, I wouldn't be so sure Peacock will get that run support he's thrived on this year. If that's the case, look for him to find himself in some high leverage situations that he hasn't experienced in awhile and hopefully for the sake of this wager will be his undoing.


    Both of Houston's losses with Peacock on the hill this year have come at home against division rivals, and Seattle's got a great chance to add their name to that list tonight.

    Tuesday's Diamond Notes
    July 18, 2017



    Hottest team: Nationals (5-0 past five games, 9-2 past 11 overall)


    The Nationals completed a four-game sweep of their wrap-around series with the Reds in Cincinnati on Monday afternoon, outscoring the Redlegs by a 35-12 score. Now, they'll try their hand at interleague play in Southern California against the Angels and they'll really put the winning streak to the test with retread Edwin Jackson on the bump. The veteran right-hander appeared in three relief appearances for the Orioles this season, allowing four earned runs and 11 hits over five innings. Jackson won just two of his final eight starts last season for San Diego.


    Coldest team: Diamondbacks (0-5 past five games, 1-8 past nine overall)


    The Diamondbacks have really the skids lately, dropping five in a row. They've hit rock-bottom with a three-game sweep in Atlanta. Now, their road trip continues in Cincinnati. They dropped two of three to the Reds just before the All-Star break, so they're certainly looking to exact a little revenge. Arizona has dropped six in a row on the road, although they're 7-3 over their past 10 road games against a right-handed starter. And they send All-Star Robbie Ray to the mound. Arizona is 5-0 over his past five starts against a team with a losing overall record, 4-1 in his past five outings on the road and 7-2 over his past nine assignments overall. The D-Backs have won six of their past eight trips to Great American Ball Park on the banks of the Ohio River.


    Hottest pitcher: Clayton Kershaw, Dodgers (14-2, 2.18 ERA)


    The All-Star Kershaw takes the hill at Guaranteed Rate Park on the south side of Chicago in search of his 15th victory. He has posted a 14-2 record, 2.18 ERA and 159 strikeouts through 132 1/3 innings across 19 starts so far this season while holding the opposition to a .195 batting average. He also sports an impressive 0.88 WHIP, second-best in the majors behind Washington's Max Scherzer. Los Angeles has won four straight interleague games, six of the past seven on the road and 42 of 53 overall. They're even better with their ace, going 7-0 in Kershaw's past seven interleague assignments, 6-0 in his past six against the AL Central and 45-9 across his past 54 starts overall. Dominance.

    Coldest pitcher: John Lackey, Cubs (5-9, 5.20 ERA)



    The veteran Lackey gets another chance to prove himself, but so far this season has been a complete disaster. He sits four games under .500 on the season through 17 starts, issuing 30 walks with 86 strikeouts and a dismal 1.33 WHIP across 98 2/3 innings. Opponents are having moderate success against him, posting a .264 average with 101 hits, better than one per frame. Most of the damage has come via the home run, as Lackey has served up 24 bombs, tied for second-most in the majors and most overall in the NL. The Cubs are just 1-4 over his past five road starts and 0-4 in his past four tries against NL East foes. The good news is Chicago will be facing a left-handed starter, and they're 7-0 in their past seven tries against southpaws.

    Biggest UNDER run: Angels (6-0-2 past eight games, 13-3-2 past 18 overall)



    The 'under' has been a solid play in Angels games lately, as their offense has been really struggling and their pitching staff has been doing a good job. The Angels welcomed Mike Trout (thumb) back to the lineup after the All-Star break, but so far he hasn't made much of a difference. They're averaging just 2.7 runs per game in three outings since returning, and 2.6 runs per game over the past 17 outings overall. While they cut break out against journeyman Edwin Jackson on Tuesday, they have to face Gio Gonzalez (8-4, 2.66 ERA) on Wednesday in what might be another slam-dunk 'under' result.

    Biggest OVER run: Astros (10-2-1 past 13 games overall)



    The final two games of Houston's series against Minnesota resulted in a pair of 'under' plays, but it was right back to big offensive numbers in the series opener against Seattle. The teams combined for 16 runs in a 9-7 loss to the Mariners on Tuesday. With Sam Gaviglio against Brad Peacock on Tuesday, it's not exactly Sandy Koufax against Warren Spahn, so another 'over' result could follow. The over is 8-3 in Houston's past 11 at home, 12-3-1 in their past 16 overall and 7-1 when facing a starting pitcher with a WHIP over 1.30. While the under is 11-5 across Peacock's past 16 outings overall, the over is a perfect 4-0 in Houston's past four home games against a team with a losing road mark.

    Matchup to watch: Athletics vs. Rays



    The Rays have looked quite rejuvenated since the All-Star break. They're 3-1 in four games since the break, and 5-1 over their past six overall. Pitching has been a major part of their success, as Tampa Bay's pitching staff is allowing just 2.2 runs per game across the past six outings. As you can imagine, that's good for the 'under', too, going 4-1-1 during the span. The Athletics fired out of the chute with a three-game sweep of the Indians, but they fell back to Earth with a 3-2 loss in the series opener against Tampa Bay. Like Tampa, the A's have been getting quite the performance on the mound lately. Oakland's staff is allowing just 2.7 runs per game over the past six outings, so an 'under' looks mighty attractive on Tuesday.


    Betcha didn’t know: Fellow handicapper Kevin Rogers, who can be followed on Twitter at VIROGERS, pointed out that Tuesday's Arizona-Cincinnati matchup features Ray-Romano, perhaps one of the funniest matchups on the board this season. It's not quite Fister-Furbush from a couple of seasons ago, or Dickey-Wang, but Ray-Romano is pretty good. There have been some quality pitcher-catcher combinations over the years, such as Buck-Hunter, Lyon-Treanor, Ellis-Eiland, May-Flowers and Peavy-Herrmann, just in case you were wondering.


    Biggest public favorite: Dodgers (-255) at White Sox


    Biggest public underdog: Rays (+110) at Athletics


    Biggest line move: Braves (+130 to -105) vs. Cubs

    MLB roundup: Cardinals' Wacha three-hits Mets 5-0
    July 18, 2017



    CHICAGO -- Clayton Kershaw earned his major-league-leading 15th win as he tossed seven shutout innings in the Los Angeles Dodgers' 1-0 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday.


    Kershaw (15-2) extended his unbeaten streak to 14 starts since May 6, a stretch that includes 11 victories. He allowed seven hits and one walk while striking out seven.


    Pedro Baez pitched the eighth, and closer Kenley Jansen worked the ninth for his 24th save as Los Angeles won its 10th straight game. The lone run scored on Cody Bellinger's first-inning single.


    Chris Taylor went a career-high-tying 4-for-5 and scored while Bellinger was 2-for-2 with two walks. Chicago's Miguel Gonzalez (4-9) worked six innings in losing his fourth straight and ninth in his past 10 starts.

    Cardinals 5, Mets 0



    NEW YORK -- Michael Wacha tossed a three-hitter for his first career complete game as St. Louis shutout New York.


    Matt Carpenter had four hits -- his 11th career four-hit game -- for St. Louis. Wacha (7-3) allowed only a two-out single to Yoenis Cespedes in the first, a one-out double to Michael Conforto in the sixth and a leadoff single to Conforto in the ninth.


    Wacha, who also helped his cause by going 1-for-4 with a run-scoring fielder's choice grounder, has won his last four starts -- a stretch in which he's allowed three runs over 26 2/3 innings.


    Diamondbacks 11, Reds 2

    CINCINNATI -- Chris Hermann and Rey Fuentes homered, and Arizona tied a season high with nine extra-base hits while snapping a season-high five-game losing streak.


    On a night when they acquired slugging outfielder J.D. Martinez in a trade with the Detroit Tigers, the Diamondbacks saw their struggling offense erupt for six runs in the fifth inning. David Peralta went 3-for-5 with a double and RBI for Arizona.


    Diamondbacks left-hander Robbie Ray (9-4) allowed two runs on four hits in six innings and retired seven of the final eight batters he faced. He recorded his 500th career strikeout in the fourth inning and finished with four on the night.

    Orioles 12, Rangers 1



    BALTIMORE -- Chris Davis homered twice, including a grand slam, and drove in a career-high six runs as Baltimore banged out four homers to beat Texas.


    Davis hit a two-run shot in the first as the Orioles scored six times against the Rangers' Tyson Ross (2-2). The grand slam came off Austin Bibens-Dirkx in the fourth and broke the game open, giving the Orioles a 10-1 lead.


    Trey Mancini and Seth Smith hit the other Orioles homers. Mancini's was a two-run bomb during in the first, while Smith led off the eighth with a solo shot.


    Astros 6, Mariners 2

    HOUSTON -- Evan Gattis belted two home runs and Brad Peacock produced the best start of his career as Houston beat Seattle.


    Gattis socked both homers, his ninth and 10th on the season, off Sam Gaviglio (3-5). Jose Altuve finished 3-for-4 with an RBI for the Astros. Every starter excluding Yuli Gurriel reached base at least once.


    Peacock (8-1) extended his winning streak to five consecutive starts, limiting the Mariners to one run on three hits and one walk over a season-high seven innings. Peacock recorded nine strikeouts.

    Yankees 6, Twins 3



    MINNEAPOLIS -- Didi Gregorius had three hits, including a two-run homer in a five-run fifth inning, and New York spoiled Bartolo Colon's Minnesota debut.


    Ronald Torreyes added three hits for the Yankees. Aaron Judge had two hits, a walk, two runs and an RBI, and Gary Sanchez added two hits and two RBIs for New York, which has won 11 of its past 14 games against Minnesota.


    The 44-year-old Colon (2-9), pitching for his 10th team, gave up four runs on eight hits in four-plus innings. His ERA rose to 8.19 in 14 major league starts this season with the first 13 coming with Atlanta.


    Pirates 4, Brewers 3


    PITTSBURGH -- Francisco Cervelli and Josh Harrison homered and David Freese provided the go-ahead single -- all in a four-run sixth inning -- as Pittsburgh rallied past Milwaukee.


    The Pirates' Starling Marte received a warm reception in his first game after serving an 80-game suspension for PED use, walking after Cervelli's solo shot and scored on Harrison's blast. Marte made a sliding catch of Ryan Braun's soft line drive to end the first.


    Travis Shaw's three-run homer off the Pirates' Ivan Nova (10-6) in the third inning was the extent of the Brewers' offense.


    Rockies 9, Padres 7

    DENVER -- Slumping Carlos Gonzalez drove in three runs and Mark Reynolds ended a long homer drought as Colorado held off San Diego.


    After the Padres struck for three runs in the first, Reynolds hit a three-run homer in the bottom of the inning. It was his 20th homer but first in 55 at-bats since June 26.


    Gonzalez's two-run double highlighted a four-run fifth that gave the Rockies a 6-4 lead. He singled home a run in the sixth that put the Colorado ahead 9-6. The double was Gonzalez's first extra-base hits since June 21.

    Tigers 9, Royals 3



    KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Nicholas Castellanos had four hits, including a pair of solo home runs, and drove in five runs as Detroit beat fading Kansas City.


    The four hits and five RBIs equaled career highs for Castellanos. He tripled home a pair of runs to cap off a five-run second inning. Castellanos homered in the fifth and seventh innings and his eighth-inning two-out single scored Dixon Machado.


    The Tigers' Matthew Boyd (3-5), who was 0-2 with a 13.17 ERA in his first four career starts at Kauffman Stadium, yielded three runs on four hits, a hit batter and a sacrifice fly in the first before settling down. He pitched six innings.

    Phillies 5, Marlins 2



    MIAMI -- Maikel Franco's home run overshadowed another shot by Giancarlo Stanton as Philadelphia defeated Miami.


    Franco's solo blast to left-center field broke a 2-2 tie in the eighth inning. It was his 14th homer of the season and his fourth this month while his past three homers have broken deadlocks.


    All-Star reliever Pat Neshek (3-2) threw one scoreless inning to earn the win for the Phillies (31-61), who have the worst record in the majors. Hector Neris tossed a perfect ninth inning for his ninth save.

    Wednesday’s List of 13: Mid-week musings…….

    13) TheMMQB.com ran a very interesting feature this week— an all-time draft of NFL players, with some veteran NFL minds drafting the players. Bill Polian, Ernie Accorsi, Dan Fouts, Gil Brandt were four of the 12 people picking teams.


    None of this solves anything, but it is great fodder for debate. Here are the 12 QB’s who were taken, in the order they were selected.


    1) Unitas 2) Brady 3) Otto Graham 4) Montana 5) Elway 6) Staubach 7) Manning 8) Bradshaw 9) Rodgers 10) Favre 11) Marino 12) Aikman


    12) Other highlights of the draft:
    — Lawrence Taylor was the first player taken. I have a friend Scott who knows more about football than anyone I know— when he reads that, he is not going to like it.
    — Dan Fouts drafted Terry Bradshaw; he should’ve drafted Dan Fouts, who was better than Bradshaw and Aikman.
    — Fouts drafted Ray Guy in the first round; I don’t have an explanation for that.
    — Sammy Baugh got drafted, but as a punter, not a QB.
    — Each team also drafted a coach; here are the 12 coaches picked, in order:


    1) Lombardi 2) Walsh 3) Levy/Dungy (co-coach— Bill Polian did that) 4) Noll 5) Shula 6) Gibbs 7) Landry 8) Belichick 9) Coryell 10) Paul Brown 11) Curly Lambeau 12) Madden


    No Parcells is weird; picking your buddies Levy/Dungy over Belichick is plain stupid. George Allen could be in this group of 12, but some of these guys just took their friends. Then again, if I was picking a team, my coach undoubtedly would’ve been Dick Vermeil. ��


    Again, the whole draft is on TheMMQB.com. It is kind of fun to look through.


    11) Best coaches who were left out: Parcells, Vermeil, Hank Stram, Bud Grant, Jimmy Johnson, Tom Flores, Sid Gillman.


    10) Best QB’s who were left out: Bart Starr, Drew Brees, Ken Stabler, Kurt Warner, Jim Kelly, Fran Tarkenton, Steve Young.


    9) Dodgers have swept 11 series this year; Clayton Kershaw didn’t pitch in 3 of the 11 series.


    8) Announced attendance in Oakland Monday night was 9,736, a very quiet 9,736. It was the A’s smallest home crowd in six years.


    When you start selling off players, it may be good business over the long haul, but it sends the message that “we’ve quit for this year.” People don’t like to shell out money to watch teams who have quit for the season.


    White Sox are 0-4 since dealing Jose Quintana; A’s are now 1-1 since trading the two relievers to the Nationals. I’m going to track this as teams sell off guys the rest of this month.


    7) Former big league 1B James Loney is off to Korea to play for the LG Twins on a $350,000 deal. Eric Thames played over in Korea for three years and now he is back in the majors with Milwaukee.


    6) Weird Story of the Day: Cowboys WR Lucky Whitehead is asking for help locating his pitbull Blitz, who was abducted; the thieves are demanding a $10,000 ransom. Seriously, they are.


    5) I wish they’d legalize online poker in this country so ESPN would start showing the World Series of Poker again (no one will buy commercial time if online poker is illegal). First prize this year is $8.1M; the final table is set, but I’ve never heard of any of the nine guys.


    If you’re the first guy eliminated at the final table, you still bank $1M, so thats not too bad.


    4) NBA season is starting October 17 this year, earlier than usual, as the league tries to reduce the amount of back/backs each team plays.


    3) Astros’ SS Carlos Correa is out 6-8 weeks (thumb), another victim of the headfirst slide. Guys need to wear that hand protector Mike Trout is wearing now if they want to slide headfirst.


    2) White Sox traded Todd Frazier, David Robertson and Shaker High’s Tommy Kahnle to the Bronx for Tyler Clippard (???) and two prospects. According to someone on Twitter who says they know a lot about the minor leagues, White Sox have 10 of the top 68 prospects in the minors, but top prospect Yoan Moncada is now headed to the Windy City.


    1) Arizona acquired free agent-to-be JD Martinez from Detroit for three prospects. Guy on MLB Network said the three prospects aren’t that great, and that Arizona got off cheap on the deal.

    MLB notebook: D-backs acquire slugger Martinez from Tigers
    July 18, 2017



    The Arizona Diamondbacks acquired right fielder J.D. Martinez from the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday in exchange for three prospects.


    Martinez provides a right-handed power bat for the Diamondbacks, who sent minor league infielders Dawel Lugo, Sergio Alcantara and Jose King to the Tigers.


    The 29-year-old Martinez missed nearly the first six weeks of the season after suffering a Lisfranc sprain in his right foot during spring training. He was batting .305 with 16 home runs and 39 RBIs in 57 games.


    In his fourth year with Detroit, Martinez clubbed 83 homers in his previous three seasons, establishing career highs with 38 blasts and 102 RBIs in 2015.


    --Houston Astros All-Star shortstop Carlos Correa will miss six to eight weeks with a torn ligament in his left thumb.


    Correa suffered the injury during Monday's game against the Seattle Mariners when he jammed the thumb on a swing. He said afterward that he felt a high dose of pain.


    The re-examination on Tuesday diagnosed the severity of the injury. Correa said he underwent an MRI exam and will undergo surgery on a yet-to-be-determined date.


    At 62-31, the Astros own the second-best record in the majors. They will now be without their 22-year-old star, who is batting .320 with 20 homers and 67 RBIs, for up to two months.


    --Milwaukee Brewers catcher Stephen Vogt will miss at least one month due to a sprained MCL in his left knee, manager Craig Counsell said.


    Vogt was injured in Monday's game during a collision at home plate with Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Chad Kuhl. Vogt also took an inadvertent elbow in the head from Kuhl on the play and had to be helped off the field.


    Vogt was placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday. Right-hander Junior Guerra (shin) was activated from the disabled list to start Tuesday's game.


    Vogt is batting .250 with four homers in 28 at-bats for the Brewers since being claimed off waivers from the Oakland Athletics. The two-time All-Star hit just .217 with four homers in 157 at-bats with Oakland before being designated for assignment in late June.


    --Pittsburgh Pirates center fielder Starling Marte was reinstated from Major League Baseball's restricted list after serving an 80-game suspension for testing positive for the performance-enhancing substance Nandrolone.


    Marte is expected to be in the lineup Tuesday night and bat leadoff as Pittsburgh (45-48) hosts the National League Central-leading Milwaukee Brewers (52-43) in the second contest of a four-game series.


    Infielder Phil Gosselin was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis to make room for Marte, who was batting .241 with two homers and seven RBIs in 13 games this season.


    The 28-year-old Dominican made the National League All-Star team for the first time last season when he batted a career-best .311 and set a personal high with 47 stolen bases. He also won a Gold Glove for the second straight season.


    --New York Yankees first baseman Greg Bird insisted that he wishes to play again this season despite undergoing ankle surgery.


    Bird released a statement shortly after the surgery and one day removed from the Yankees announcing that his season likely is over.


    "All this time, I have wanted nothing more than to be out there playing the game I love as a member of the New York Yankees," Bird said in the statement. "My season is not over. I plan to do everything in my power to return and help our team win in 2017."


    Manager Joe Girardi told reporters that Bird likely would be sidelined six weeks, with the 24-year-old resuming baseball activities in September.


    --First baseman James Loney signed a one-year, $350,000 contract with the LG Twins of the Korean Baseball Organization, the team announced.


    Loney requested and received his release in May from the Atlanta Braves' Triple-A affiliate in Gwinnett. He had signed with the club after Freddie Freeman fractured his left wrist, although Atlanta quickly acquired first baseman Matt Adams from the St. Louis Cardinals.


    The 33-year-old Loney batted .288 with 108 homers and 669 RBIs during his 11-year major league career. Loney hit .265 with nine homers and 34 RBIs in 100 games last season with the New York Mets.

    LEADING OFF: JD Martinez joins Diamondbacks, Gray auditions
    July 18, 2017


    A look at what's happening all around the majors Wednesday:



    DONE DEAL


    Infielder Todd Frazier and relievers David Robertson and Tommy Kahnle are headed to the Yankees, maybe in time for an afternoon game at Minnesota. New York made an early push for playoff run late Tuesday night, sending reliever Tyler Clippard and three minor leaguers to the last-place White Sox. Chicago is calling up its top prospect, 22-year-old infielder Yoan Moncada, from the minors before its game at home against the Dodgers.


    WELCOME


    Star outfielder J.D. Martinez joins the Arizona Diamondbacks, a day after they got him from Detroit for a trio of prospects. Martinez is expected to take over in left field and provide sorely needed pop against left-handed pitching. He is hitting .305 with 16 home runs and 39 RBIs going into Arizona's game at Cincinnati. The Diamondbacks are in firm control of a wild-card spot, but far back of the Dodgers in the NL West.


    BACK AT 10 AGAIN


    The Dodgers can win their 11th straight when they conclude a two-game set against the White Sox. Los Angeles owns the best record in baseball at 65-29 and has won 30 of 34, including its second 10-game winning streak of the season. Dodgers right-hander Kenta Maeda (7-4, 4.38) will face Chicago lefty Carlos Rodon (1-2, 4.32).


    SCOUTING SONNY


    Oakland right-hander Sonny Gray may be auditioning for shopping contenders when he starts against Tampa Bay. Gray (5-4, 3.72) has been one of the sharpest pitchers supposedly on the trade block, going 3-1 with a 1.33 ERA in his past four starts. He'll try to extend that run against promising Rays rookie Jacob Faria (4-0, 2.00).


    SHOCK JOCK


    Chris Christie will have plenty to talk about after catching a foul ball during the Cardinals-Mets game at Citi Field. The embattled soon-to-be-ex-New Jersey governor drew cheers when he made a one-handed snag on a high pop by St. Louis rookie Paul DeJong that bounced in the stands - but once it became clear the fan in a blue shirt and red tie was Christie, those cheers turned to boos. Christie, a Republican who'll leave office in January, had a 15 percent approval rating in recent polls. He tried out this month for a spot on popular New York sports radio station WFAN, and the catch could at least provide fodder for another appearance.


    JUST JAKE


    Mets ace Jacob deGrom tries to win his seventh straight start when he faces the visiting Cardinals. Snubbed for the NL All-Star team, deGrom (10-3) has a 1.53 ERA during his winning streak.
