    LEADING OFF: Freeman leads Braves, Verlander dominates
    June 13, 2018



    A look at what's happening around the majors Thursday:


    FANTASTIC FREEMAN


    Freddie Freeman didn't get down on himself after his 16-game hitting streak ended on June 4. Instead, the Atlanta slugger just picked right back up where left off - extending his latest streak to seven games with a pair of hits in a win over the New York Mets on Wednesday. The first baseman has now hit safely in 23 of his last 24 games entering a home series with the San Diego Padres, including homering in his last three games.


    CY VERLANDER?


    Justin Verlander matched his season high when he allowed three earned runs in his last start, a 7-3 win for the Houston Astros over Texas last week. The American League ERA leader (1.45) will try and return to his usual dominating self when he starts at Oakland. Verlander (8-2) has allowed only 51 hits in 93 1/3 innings this season, striking out 113 in his first full season in Houston.


    THE OLD-FASHIONED WAY


    After pitching only relievers during a three-game sweep of Toronto, the Rays will go the more traditional route when stingy starter Blake Snell (8-3, 2.30 ERA) gets the ball at Yankee Stadium. Making a strong bid for his first All-Star selection, the 25-year-old lefty is 3-0 with a 0.38 ERA over his last four starts. Snell made his big league debut in the Bronx in April 2016, allowing one run and two hits with six strikeouts in five innings. New York is 15-4 against left-handed starters this season.


    LYNN'S TIME


    Lance Lynn looked like anything but the same pitcher who won 71 games over the last five seasons in St. Louis during his first month with the Minnesota Twins this season. After posting an 8.37 ERA in April, however, the right-hander has recovered nicely and is looking well worth the one-year, $12-million contract Minnesota gave to him before the season. Going into his start at Detroit, Lynn has allowed two or fewer runs in five of his last seven starts. The 31-year-old has a 1.50 ERA in two starts in June, and he's lowered his overall ERA to 5.08 for the season.

    Thursday’s 6-pack

    Betting props for the US Open that starts Thursday:


    — Lowest 18-hole score (not including playoff): 64.5: under -$120


    — Highest score on any player on one hole: 9.5, under -$120


    — Will there be a hole-in-one? Yes -$125


    — Highest 18-hole score for any player: 86.5


    — Will there be a playoff? Yes +$300, No, -$400


    — Individual matchup: Woods -$175, Mickelson +$130


    Tweet of the Day
    “He’s simply overrated. The good ain’t worth the bad. He’s a losing player. Cares about himself more than the team. If I was in charge and had money, my team would not pursue him. We would use that money to sign 2-3 winning players.”
    An unnamed NL executive, talking about Bryce Harper


    Thursday’s quiz
    Which NL closer was a first round draft pick as a first baseman, hit 22 homers in the minors in 2008 but later switched to pitching?


    Wednesday’s quiz
    Nationals’ manager Dave Martinez got the first hit in Tampa Bay Rays’ history.


    Tuesday’s quiz
    Clint Hurdle was the Colorado Rockies’ manager in their only World Series appearance.




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


    Thursday’s List of 13: Happy Armadillo Day!!!!


    13) 17 years ago today, armadillosports.com was born; the world has changed a lot since then, not always for the better, but hopefully you’ve enjoyed reading this space, thru good and bad.


    As year #18 begins here, let’s hope the world becomes a happier, more cohesive place.


    12) June 14 also means it is my friend Big Dawg’s 29th birthday (again); happy birthday!!!


    11) Nationals 5, New York 4— Juan Soto is 19 years old; he is hitting .349 in his first 20 major league games and hit two homers in this game.


    Soto played only eight games in the AA Eastern League, batting 31 times; he skipped over AAA, which is very unusual, but Soto appears to be an unusual talent.


    10) Detroit 1B Miguel Cabrera (biceps) is done for the year, but a doctor posted on Twitter Tuesday night that he should be 100% for 2019.


    Tigers are on the hook for $154M for Cabrera AFTER this year (2019-23). He better be 100%.


    9) Ruben Amaro Jr is first base coach for the Mets this year, which is only newsworthy because from 2009-15, he was general manager of the Phillies. Guys don’t go from being GM’s to base coaches, very unusual.


    Amaro took over the Phillies the year after they won the World Series, let their nucleus get a little too old before he broke it up, then got fired.


    Now he is trying to work his way up into becoming a field manager. Interesting career.


    8) Speaking of the Mets, they hit .147 on their recent 9-game homestand. Thats the worst batting average EVER for any homestand of 7+ games, for any team in baseball history.


    7) In 1970, Bob Gibson went 23-7 pitching and hit .303; he is the only pitcher ever to win the Cy Young Award and hit .300 in the same season.


    6) Someone at the Westgate SuperBook bet $1,200 Tuesday on Eldrick Woods to win the US Open this week at 20-1.


    5) Paid attendance in Miami Tuesday night for Giants-Marlins; 5,928 (announced). As the old saying goes, many of those 5,928 “fans” were disguised as empty seats.


    4) Braves 2, Mets 0— Jacob deGrom pitched Wednesday; he has a 1.31 RA in his last eight starts, but won only one of the eight games. Mets haven’t hit for him, and the bullpen has blown leads late in the game for him.


    Braves pitched Mike Soroka had a no-hitter thru six innings, trying to become the third Canadian pitcher to throw a big league no-hitter.


    3) There have been two no-hitters thrown by Canadian pitchers; James Paxton in Toronto earlier this season, and on September 9, 1945, Philadelphia’s Dick Fowler no-hit the St Louis Browns 1-0 in the second game of a doubleheader.


    That was Fowler’s first start in three years; he had served in the Canadian Army during World War II and this was his first start after returning from the war.


    Fowler wound up going 66-79 in 10 years in the major leagues, all with the A’s; he passed away at age 51 in Oneonta, NY.


    2) Major league umpire Stu Scheurwater is from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, not a place you’d expect a major league umpire to come from.


    1) Seven weeks left until the trade deadline in baseball; media types will keep themselves busy with useless speculation. Wake me up when an actual trade happens.


    Why I call it useless speculation; Mets have already said that deGrom isn’t available, but until he’s still a Met on August 1, you’ll see speculation that he’s going to be traded.

    Thursday's Diamond Notes
    Kevin Rogers



    Hottest team:
    Astros (7-0 last seven)


    Houston and Seattle are battling it for the top spot in the American League West as both teams are on fire. The Astros picked up their seventh consecutive victory on Wednesday night by blasting the Athletics, 13-5 to improve to 25-11 away from Minute Maid Park. Houston owns a 7-1 record against Oakland this season, including a perfect 5-0 mark at the Coliseum this season.


    The Astros seek the sweep of the A’s this afternoon and have an excellent chance to do so as Justin Verlander takes the mound. The former MVP and Cy Young winner has compiled an 8-2 record along with a miniscule 1.45 ERA, while facing Oakland for the first time this season. The Astros have won six of Verlander’s seven road starts in 2018, while Houston is seeking its third fourth away sweep of the season.

    Coldest team:
    Giants (5-16 last 21 on road)


    San Francisco has gone backwards since traveling to south Florida by losing three games to Miami. The Giants blew an early 2-0 lead in a 5-4 walk-off defeat on Wednesday, marking the fourth loss on their current road trip. The highway has been tough for San Francisco, as the Giants have dropped seven consecutive series since sweeping the Braves in early May.


    The only good news for San Francisco is it has won each of its past two road series finales at Colorado and Washington, as the Giants wrap up their series with the Marlins this afternoon. Dereck Rodriguez makes his third career start for San Francisco today, as he was lit up by Washington in his last outing by allowing five earned runs in 2.2 innings of a 7-5 defeat.

    Hottest pitcher:
    Blake Snell, Rays (8-3, 2.30 ERA)


    Tampa Bay travels to New York tonight after pulling off a three-game home sweep of Toronto. Snell has been mowing down batters recently as the southpaw has struck out 36 batters in his last five starts. The left-hander has yielded only three runs in his past four outings, while giving up two runs or less in nine of his last 10 trips to the mound. Unfortunately, one of Snell’s worst starts of the season came against the Yankees in early April by allowing five earned runs in 3.1 innings of a 7-2 defeat.

    Coldest pitcher:
    German Marquez, Rockies (4-6, 4.79 ERA)


    Colorado ended a five-game slide in Wednesday’s blowout of Philadelphia, as the Rockies seek the series victory this afternoon. Marquez has struggled in June by giving up nine runs and 13 hits in 10 innings of work, while getting taken deep five times in home losses to the Dodgers and Diamondbacks. The right-hander has actually fared better away from Coors Field this season by posting a 2.06 ERA and 4-2 team record in six road starts.

    Biggest OVER run:
    Diamondbacks (6-1 last seven)


    Arizona couldn’t pull off the home sweep of Pittsburgh on Wednesday, but the D-backs scored a pair of late runs to cash the OVER of 7 in a 5-4 loss. The D-backs plated at least eight runs in each of their previous five games (all wins), but fell to 2-19 in their last 21 games when scoring four runs or fewer. Overall, Arizona is 11-4 in the past 15 contests, meaning the D-backs have been plating plenty of runs of late, which includes a 7-2 mark to the OVER in the last nine home contests. The D-backs host the Mets on Thursday, looking to avenge a three-game sweep at Citi Field last month in which Arizona scored only six runs.

    Biggest UNDER run:
    Yankees (8-0 last eight)


    The powerful New York lineup has slumped of late, coming off Wednesday’s 5-4 home loss to Washington. The Bronx Bombers have failed to score more than four runs in six straight games, but their pitching has been stellar by limiting opponents to two runs or less in five of the past seven contests. The Yankees continue their homestand tonight by hosting the Rays as Domingo German hits the hill. German has seen the UNDER cash in three straight starts, but opponents have scored at least four runs in each of his three home starts this season.

    Matchup to watch:
    Red Sox vs. Mariners


    Both Boston and Seattle are fresh off sweeps heading into this crucial four-game series at Safeco Field. The Red Sox cruised past the struggling Orioles in a three-game sweep at Camden Yards, while the Mariners walked-off in Wednesday’s victory over the Angels to secure a sweep and hold onto first place in the American League West.


    A pair of Cy Young winners head to the mound in Thursday’s opener as David Price squares off against Felix Hernandez. Price has been on fire of late as Boston owns a 6-0 record in the southpaw’s last six starts, including a 3-0 mark away from Fenway Park. During this span, Price has allowed two earned runs or less five times, while the UNDER has hit four times. Price is making his first start at Safeco Field since August 2016 when the Red Sox squandered a 4-0 lead as the Mariners scored five runs in the bottom of the eighth for a 5-4 victory.


    Hernandez yielded at least five runs for the fifth time this season in last Saturday’s 7-3 loss at Tampa Bay. The Mariners have rebounded well when King Felix takes the mound following a defeat in his last start by going 4-1 this season in this situation. Pitching under the lights has benefited Hernandez this season as he owns a 4-0 record in night games, while the M’s are 6-1 in those contests.


    The two teams split their six meetings last season as the Mariners won two of three matchups at Safeco Field. Five of the six games finished UNDER the total, while eight of the past nine contests for Boston have cashed the UNDER.

    Betcha didn’t know:
    Series openers have not been kind to the Padres this season. San Diego has amazingly lost 13 of its past 14 Game 1’s of a series dating back to late April. Who was the only team the Padres beat in a series opener during this span? San Diego destroyed Atlanta, 11-4 on June 4 at Petco Park as the Padres grabbed two of three from the Braves in that series. The Padres travel to Atlanta tonight as an underdog looking to knock off the Braves after winning the final two games of their series against the Cardinals.

    Biggest public favorite:
    Astros (-170) at Athletics

    Biggest public underdog:
    Mariners (+120) vs. Red Sox

    Biggest line move:
    Tigers (+110 to +105) vs. Twins

    Velasquez takes no-no into 7th, Phils roll
    June 14, 2018



    PHILADELPHIA (AP) Vince Velasquez took a no-hitter two outs into the seventh inning, Rhys Hoskins and Nick Williams hit solo homers and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Colorado Rockies 9-3 on Thursday.


    Trevor Story lined Velasquez's 105th pitch to left for an RBI double, ending Velasquez's bid for the fourth no-hitter in the majors this season. Velasquez (5-7) retired 20 of the first 21 batters and got a standing ovation as he walked off the mound after the hit.


    The Phillies won a series for the first time since taking two of three from Atlanta on May 21-23. They're 7-12 since.


    GIANTS 6, MARLINS 3, 16 INNINGS


    MIAMI (AP) - San Francisco third baseman Evan Longoria broke his left hand when he was hit by a pitch in the Giants' victory over Miami.


    Longoria was struck by Dan Straily. There is no timetable for Longoria's return and he will decide in the next few days if he will need surgery. He is hitting .246 with 10 home runs and 34 RBIs.


    Pablo Sandoval hit a tiebreaking, two-run single in the 16th inning. Andrew McCutchen hit a two-run homer to continue his torrid month and Mac Williamson also homered for the Giants, who salvaged the final game of a four-game series and beat the Marlins for only the second time in the last 10 meetings.


    Giants starter Dereck Rodriguez pitched 6 2-3 innings, allowing two runs. Ty Blach (4-5) also pitched 6 2-3 innings for the Giants without allowing a run. Elieser Hernandez (0-4) took the loss.


    It was the longest game of the season for the Giants and the second-longest for the Marlins, who went 17 innings in a 2-1 win over the Chicago Cubs on March 30. Colorado has lost 10 of 13.


    YANKEES 4, RAYS 3


    NEW YORK (AP) - Gleyber Torres hit another three-run homer and Domingo German struck out a career-high 10 for his first major league win and New York edged Tampa Bay in the opener of a four-game series.


    Aaron Hicks also homered off Blake Snell (8-4) as New York beat the blossoming left-hander for the second time this season and ended his four-game winning streak.


    German (1-4) gave up a home run to Matt Duffy on the first pitch of the game but quickly recovered to strike out the next three batters. Making his seventh start in place of injured Jordan Montgomery, the rookie right-hander allowed three runs, five hits and two walks in his 19th career appearance.


    Chad Green and Dellin Betances set up Aroldis Chapman for his 19th save in 20 attempts.


    TIGERS 3, TWINS 1


    DETROIT (AP) - JaCoby Jones' two-run homer capped a three-run seventh inning as Detroit rallied past Minnesota.


    Jones was hitting .135 in his last 10 games, and had struck out in his first two at-bats before hitting Lance Lynn's 3-1 fastball for his fifth home run..


    Michael Fulmer (3-5) improved to 5-0 in five career starts against the Twins. He pitched seven innings, allowing one run on five hits and a walk with four strikeouts in ending a three-start winless streak. Joe Jimenez pitched the eighth and Shane Greene threw the ninth for his 17th save.


    Lynn (4-5) took a shutout into the seventh but ended up allowing three runs on five hits and a walk. He struck out nine in 6 2/3 innings.


    INDIANS 5, WHITE SOX 2


    CHICAGO (AP) - Francisco Lindor and Jose Ramirez homered, Mike Clevinger struck out 11 in seven innings and Cleveland topped Chicago.


    Lindor led off the game against Carlos Rodon with his 15th home run. He also singled and scored in the seventh when Ramirez broke a 2-2 tie with a two-run drive to right-center against Chris Volstad (1-4) for his 20th homer.


    Clevinger (5-2) gave up two runs and five hits.


    Cody Allen worked the ninth for his 13th save in 14 chances as the AL Central leaders salvaged a four-game split.


    ASTROS 7, ATHLETICS 3


    OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Justin Verlander pitched five-hit ball over seven innings and Houston beat Oakland for its eighth straight win.


    The winning streak is the Astros' longest since they won 11 straight May 25-June 5 last season on the way to their first World Series championship.


    Khris Davis and Matt Olson homered for the A's. Both home runs came off Verlander (9-2), who struck out seven, allowed three runs and didn't walk a batter while earning his fifth consecutive win.


    Frankie Montas (3-1) gave up five earned runs and 11 hits over 5 1/3 innings.


    BRAVES 4, PADRES 2


    ATLANTA (AP) - Anibal Sanchez allowed only four hits in seven scoreless innings, Ender Inciarte homered and scored two runs and Atlanta beat San Diego.


    Ozzie Albies added a run-scoring double for the NL East-leading Braves.


    Sanchez (3-0) did not walk a batter as he earned his first win in six career starts against San Diego. Sanchez outpitched Tyson Ross (5-4), who allowed only three hits and three runs in six-plus innings.


    Arodys Vizcaino pitched the ninth for his 13th save in 15 chances.

    Armadillo: Friday's six-pack


    — Evan Longoria broke his hand when HBP Thursday, same injury Madison Bumgarner had. Bumgarner was out roughly ten weeks.


    — Twins demoted Miguel Sano to the minors (high-A ball) , possibly to lose weight?


    — Edmonton 33, Winnipeg 30— Eskimos won CFL opener with 0:05 left.


    — A’s are hitting .259 on the road, .224 at home. Hard to explain.


    — June 14, 1974; Nolan Ryan threw 13 innings in a 4-3, 15-inning win over Boston. Ryan walked 10, struck out 19, and supposedly threw 235 pitches (he faced 58 hitters).


    — June 18, 1974: Four days later, Ryan threw six shutout innings against New York.




    **********


    Armadillo: Friday's List of 13: Our first 2018 dose of college football knowledge


    One of the best days each summer is when the Phill Steele college football magazine comes in the mail. It is a great resource to use all season long.


    13) According to Phil Steele Magazine, the three toughest college football schedules for 2018 are: 1) UCLA, 2) Purdue 3) Michigan


    12) Best three offensive lines: 1) Wisconsin (150 starts back) 2) Georgia (69 starts) 3) Alabama (103 starts).


    11) Offensive lines with most returning starts: Wisconsin (150), Boston College (139), Wake Forest (131), Florida Int’l (129).


    10) Four best QB’s: Will Grier (West Va), McKenzie Milton (UCF), Jarrett Stidham (Auburn), Jake Browning (Washington).


    9) Four best kickers: Matt Gay (Utah), Austin Seibert (Oklahoma), Rodrigo Blankenship (Georgia), Jameson Vest (Toledo).


    8) Tulsa was the only team in America last year that lost five games by a TD or less. They didn’t win any games by a TD or less.


    7) Army won six games LY by a TD or less; they lost two games by a TD or less. Troy and North Texas both won five games LY by a TD or less; they didn’t lose any. South Carolina won five and lost one.


    6) Since 1991, 369 teams have been +10 or better in turnovers in a season; of those 369 teams, 240 had worse records the next year. Only 85 (23%) had better records the next year.


    Over the last seven years, only 6 of 48 teams who were +14 or better in turnovers had a better record the following season.


    Best turnover ratios is 2017: Wyoming (+24), UCF (+17), Stanford (+16), Memphis (+15).


    5) In the past 27 years, 311 teams were -10 or worse in turnovers; of those 311 teams, 208 of them had better records the following season.


    Worst turnover ratios in 2017: San Jose St (-26), Rice (-23), Kansas (-17), New Mexico (-16).


    4) Four teams Phil Steele thinks will be the most improved this year: Florida, Utah State, North Carolina, Colorado.


    3) Underdogs are 4-0-1 vs spread in last five national championship games (3-2 SU).


    2) Over last four years, underdogs are 4-1 vs spread in these bowls: Orange, Holiday, Pinstripe, New Mexico Bowls.


    1) The current King of Bowls is Utah coach Kyle Whittingham, who is 11-1 as a head coach in bowl games.

    Weekend Road Warriors




    Last week the look at road teams for the weekend proved to work out quite well as the Golden State Warriors were able to close the NBA Finals out on the road in Game 4, while the Milwaukee Brewers took two of three from the Phillies.


    Others like Seattle, Cleveland, and the L.A. Angels who were briefly touched on all won their respective series' as well last weekend as backing those quality MLB teams away from home turned out to go quite well.


    This weekend it's a heavy focus on the MLB again as we’ve got some strong teams wearing their visiting colors again, including some rematches from a weekend ago. Milwaukee hosts Philadelphia this time around, as Cleveland is also hosting their opponent from last week, the Minnesota Twins.


    Of those two, I'd be more inclined to look at Philly to get some measure of revenge over Milwaukee rather than backing the Twins in Cleveland, but there are actually a couple other series I want to look at here.


    Washington Nationals Head North of the Border For a Three-Game Set with Toronto


    Toronto has one of the worst records in all of baseball since the middle of April and after getting swept by the Rays this week, they head home to host a very good Washington Nationals team.


    Giving the Nationals another hitter in their lineup with the DH isn't ideal for the Blue Jays, but when you've also got to face the likes of Gio Gonzalez, Max Scherzer, and Tanner Roark, this weekend could get ugly for Toronto fans.


    Toronto does counter with two of their bigger names in Aaron Sanchez and Marco Estrada, but neither guy have even been close to the level of expectations they had for themselves (as well as the fanbase's expectations for them), and I expect the Blue Jays to find themselves on the wrong end of yet another series when all is said and done here.


    The Red Sox are in the Pacific Northwest in a Possible Playoff Preview


    Boston begins a four-game set with the smoking hot Seattle Mariners this week in what could end up being a playoff preview. These two teams enter the weekend atop their respective divisions, but in very tight races with division rivals from New York and Houston respectively.


    With how well both sides have played through 2.5 months of the year so far, squaring off in a four-game set against one another is a nice litmus test for both organizations at this stage of the season.


    Boston has opened as a -130 road favorite for the opener tonight, and it will be interesting to see how their priced the rest of the weekend. Right off the top I think this series is a prime candidate for a 2-2 split, but figuring out how that split happens is why they play the games.


    I wouldn't shy away from backing Boston here though if the price is right – they'll likely be road 'dogs Friday vs James Paxton, and quite possibly underdogs for the final two games as well – so that's where I'll be leaning in this series.


    The Giants and Dodgers Renew Acquaintances Out in L.A.


    San Francisco isn't what I'd call a great team to back on the road, but assuming that they'll be sizable underdogs in at least two of their three games with the Dodgers this weekend, they are worth some consideration.


    L.A. has played some great baseball over the past month to climb back into the race in the NL West, but they are still the 2nd worst team in terms of betting units lost this year at -$1864 on $100 bets each game. Only the very bad Baltimore Orioles have lost more units than the Dodgers have, and now that they are playing better baseball, those inflated lines start to show up again.


    At 14-24 SU on the road (pending Thursday's afternoon game in Miami), the Giants aren't the best money-earners as visitors, but they tend to put their best foot forward in games against L.A, and do have Madison Bumgarner scheduled to go on Saturday.


    San Francisco has also already taken six of the first 10 meetings with L.A this year, (2-2 SU in L.A.), so asking them to win once, and maybe even twice this weekend isn't totally out of the question.


    L.A. is going with Ross Stripling and Alex Wood for Games 1 and 2 so it's not like it's the best of the best of L.A.'s rotation that San Francisco will be up against, and if the price is right, backing the Giants is another option I'll be looking at.

    LEADING OFF: Story returns home, Cubs-Cards face off
    June 14, 2018


    A look at what's happening around the majors Friday:



    TEXAS STORY


    Colorado shortstop Trevor Story gets to play a big league game near home for the first time when the Rockies open an interleague series Friday night at the Texas Rangers, in a stadium only a few miles from his hometown of Irving, Texas. The Rockies last played at Texas in 2016, which was Story's standout rookie season. But Story, the 45th overall pick in the 2011 draft out of Irving High, suffered a season-ending left thumb injury about two weeks before that series. Another Texas native starts the opener for the Rockies in right-hander Chad Bettis (4-1), who is from Lubbock and went to Texas Tech. He got a no decision in the Rockies' 12-9 win during that August 2016 series when he allowed five runs in five innings.


    ACES UP


    Two of the National League's top pitchers this season will face off when the Chicago Cubs open a weekend series at the St. Louis Cardinals. Jon Lester (7-2) takes the mound for the Cubs, who are coming off two straight losses at Milwaukee, and the left-hander is fourth in the NL in ERA (2.22). Michael Wacha, meanwhile, is 8-1 and seventh in the league with a 2.47 ERA - providing a much-needed boost for a Cardinals team that's 4-5 in its last nine games against Miami, Cincinnati and San Diego.


    BACK IN TOWN


    Nathan Eovaldi (1-1) takes the ball for the Tampa Bay Rays at Yankee Stadium, his fourth outing since becoming the 12th pitcher to start a major league game following multiple Tommy John surgeries. Eovaldi pitched for the Yankees from 2015-16, going 14-3 for them in 2015, but has never faced New York. ''I wish I would have been able to finish on a healthy note. Other than that, I really enjoyed my time there,'' Eovaldi said.


    Jonathan Loaisiga comes up from Double-A Trenton to make his big league debut for the Yankees, starting in place of injured Masahiro Tanaka. The 23-year-old Loaisiga, from Nicaragua, returned to the mound last year from Tommy John surgery. ''Super excited. This is a great opportunity the Yankees are giving me,'' Loaisiga said through a translator. ''It's been a tough road for me to get here and now it's about enjoying this moment.''


    GIO WATCH


    Gio Gonzalez (6-2, 2.65 ERA) had his worst start of the season in his last outing, allowing four runs in 3 1/3 innings against the San Francisco Giants last week. The Washington Nationals left-hander will return to the mound when he makes an interleague start against the Toronto Blue Jays.

    Friday's Diamond Notes
    June 15, 2018

    Hottest team: Astros (8-0 last eight)


    The defending champions are hitting their stride following an easy three-game sweep of the Athletics. Houston improved to 7-0 on its current road trip against Texas and Oakland, while scoring 26 runs in the last three wins at the Coliseum. The Astros are not afraid to cover heavy numbers, as Houston has laid at least -170 in six of these wins, while cashing on the run-line in six of the past eight victories.


    Houston hopes to avoid a letdown this weekend with a visit to struggling Kansas City, who has lost nine of its past 10 games. Charlie Morton began the season at 7-0, but the Astros right-hander is winless in his last three starts, while failing to escape the fourth inning in his last outing at Texas. Morton only allowed one hit, but walked six batters as the Astros eventually beat the Rangers, 4-3.


    Coldest team: Rangers (3-9 last 12)


    The other Lone Star State squad is going in the opposite direction at the moment as Texas returns home to host Colorado. The Rangers were swept in a four-game home series by the Astros before traveling west and dropping a pair of interleague contests to the Dodgers. Texas has allowed 39 runs during this six-game skid, marking its longest losing streak of the season.


    The Rangers will turn to rookie Yohander Mendez, who faces a Rockies’ club that has lost six of their previous seven games. Mendez has struggled on the minor-league level by posting an 0-6 record and 5.26 ERA in 10 starts at Triple-A Round Rock, while Texas tries to improve on a 1-8 mark in its past nine series openers.


    Hottest pitcher: Ross Stripling, Dodgers (5-1, 1.65 ERA)


    Have the Dodgers found their new ace with Clayton Kershaw on the disabled list? We won’t go that far, but Stripling has been a solid replacement at the top of the Los Angeles rotation of late. The right-hander has won five consecutive starts, while yielding two earned runs or less in each of his last seven starts. Stripling shut down the Braves in his last appearance by allowing two earned runs and four hits in 6.2 innings of a 7-2 victory last Sunday. Stripling faces the Giants, who own a 6-4 mark against the Dodgers this season.


    Coldest pitcher: Jake Arrieta, Phillies (5-4, 2.97 ERA)


    It’s odd that a pitcher owning an ERA below 3.00 would be in this category, but Arrieta has struggled of late. The former Cy Young winner has been tagged for 10 runs (nine earned) in his last two starts, losses to the Giants and Brewers. Arrieta was rolling prior to this cold stretch by not allowing a run in wins against the Braves and Dodgers, but has given up at least five runs in three starts this season. The right-hander receives another crack against Milwaukee tonight at Miller Park as Philadelphia tries to improve on a 3-8 mark in its last 11 road games.


    Biggest OVER run: Marlins (7-3 last 10 on road)


    Miami couldn’t pull off the four-game sweep of San Francisco on Thursday, but cashed the OVER in a 16-inning defeat, 6-3 on an 8 total. The Marlins travel to Baltimore for an interleague set between a pair of last-place teams as Miami has been a solid team to back with the OVER on the road of late. Miami has allowed four runs or more seven times in the past nine away contests, including three straight OVERS in road series openers. Jose Urena has given up at least three runs in six of his last seven starts for Miami, although the OVER is 3-4 in this stretch.


    Biggest UNDER run: Yankees (8-0 last eight)


    New York’s offense hasn’t been impressive of late, but the Yankees received a pair of home runs in a four-run fifth inning in Thursday’s 4-3 victory over the Rays. Second baseman Gleyber Torres continued his solid season by knocking out his 13th home run, while the Yankees’ pitching staff has allowed three runs or less in seven of the last eight games. The Yankees look to beat Tampa Bay once again tonight as right-hander Jonathan Loaisiga makes his Major League debut after compiling a 6-1 record and 3.00 ERA in the minors this season.


    Matchup to watch: Cubs vs. Cardinals


    The last time these NL Central rivals hooked up at Busch Stadium last month, the Cardinals pulled off a three-game sweep of the Cubs, aided by a pair of walk-off wins. Both teams have stumbled of late as Chicago dropped the final two games at Milwaukee (both by shutout), while St. Louis was tripped up by San Diego in a pair of 4-2 losses after capturing the series opener.


    Jon Lester heads to the mound for Chicago, coming off consecutive scoreless outings in victories over the Mets and Pirates. The southpaw tossed seven innings in each start, while yielding a total of three hits and striking out 12 batters. The Cubs have won four of Lester’s last five outings against the Cardinals since last season, but St. Louis won the most recent matchup on May 6 at Busch Stadium, 4-3.


    Michael Wacha counters for St. Louis, as the Cardinals have compiled a strong 10-2 record in his previous 12 starts. Wacha is fresh off three wins in his last three trips to the hill, including beating Cincinnati for the third time this season in a 6-4 triumph last Saturday. The Redbirds have won seven of Wacha’s eight starts at Busch Stadium this season, including the one-run walk-off win in 14 innings opposite Lester last month.


    Betcha didn’t know: The Mariners were slowed up by the Red Sox on Thursday in a 2-1 home setback. However, Seattle has not fallen behind in a series, 2-0 yet this season. The M’s own a perfect 6-0 record in Game 2’s of a series following a loss in the opener as James Paxton heads to the hill tonight. Paxton is putting together a terrific season at 6-1 and an ERA of 3.02 to go along with a no-hitter, but the Mariners have posted a 3-3 record in his six starts at Safeco Field this season.


    Biggest public favorite: Indians (-210) vs. Twins


    Biggest public underdog: Phillies (+125) at Brewers


    Biggest line move: Diamondbacks (-130 to -140) vs. Mets

    Friday, June 15





    Streaking and Slumping Starting Pitchers

    Streaking:
    Ross Stripling, Los Angeles Dodgers (5-1, 1.65 ERA, $70)


    Stripling has been a revelation for the Dodgers rotation since joining it back at the end of April and he seems to be getting stronger as he gets more comfortable with his role.


    The third-year man has a 1.15 ERA and a 0.77 WHIP, while racking up 41 punch outs to just two walks in his last five starts. Stripling will look to stay hot as he and the Dodgers welcome the Giants to town. Los Angeles is a big -225 favorite.

    Slumping:
    Matt Harvey, Cincinnati Reds (1-4, 5.97 ERA, $112)


    Well, that honeymoon phase sure didn’t last long. After a promising start to his Reds’ career, the old Matt Harvey we’ve become accustomed to has returned.

    Loaisiga impressive in debut, Yanks top TB
    June 15, 2018



    NEW YORK (AP) Jonathan Loaisiga pitched three-hit ball over five impressive innings to win his major league debut, and the New York Yankees beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5-0 on Friday night.


    Didi Gregorius homered off ex-Yankee Nathan Eovaldi, and Gary Sanchez broke out of a long slump with a three-run double in the eighth. Giancarlo Stanton had a sacrifice fly for New York, which improved the best record in the majors to 45-20.


    Jonathan Holder, David Robertson, Dellin Betances and Adam Warren each worked an inning to finish the four-hitter.


    Loaisiga (1-0) was called up from Double-A Trenton to fill in for injured starter Masahiro Tanaka. The 23-year-old righty, who walked only four batters in 45 minor league innings this year, struggled a little with his command, issuing four walks while striking out six.


    Pitching against his former team, Eovaldi (1-2) allowed only two runs over the first seven innings until the Yankees chased him in the eighth. He was charged with five runs and eight hits in 7 1/3 innings during his first career outing against New York. He struck out five and walked one.


    TWINS 6, INDIANS 3


    CLEVELAND (AP) - Corey Kluber had a rare rocky performance, lasting just five innings and losing for the first time in seven starts as Kyle Gibson outpitched the Cy Young winner and Brian Dozier hit a two-run homer to lead Minnesota past Cleveland.


    Kluber (10-3) allowed a homer on his fourth pitch of the game to Eddie Rosario and was pulled after throwing just 65 pitches by manager Terry Francona. It was the shortest outing this season for the All-Star, who came in 5-0 with a 0.76 ERA against AL Central teams and was riding several other impressive streaks.


    Gibson (2-4) limited the Indians to one run and three hits in seven innings and got his first win since his season debut on March 31.


    Yan Gomes homered in the ninth and the Indians closed to 6-3 before closer Fernando Rodney struck out Francisco Lindor with one on for his 15th save.


    PIRATES 3, REDS 2


    PITTSBURGH (AP) - Chad Kuhl pitched six solid innings to win for the first time in more than a month, and Pittsburgh edged Cincinnati and Matt Harvey.


    Kuhl (5-4) gave up two runs, one earned, and six hits while striking out six and walking three. It was his first win since May 6 at Milwaukee, a span of seven starts, though Kuhl allowed no more than three runs in any of his previous four outings.


    The Pirates pulled ahead 3-2 in the sixth on consecutive sacrifice flies by Starling Marte and Colin Moran off reliever Michael Lorenzen. The runs were charged to Harvey (1-5), who allowed three runs on four hits with two strikeouts and two walks. The former New York Mets ace is 1-3 with a 5.09 ERA in seven starts since being traded to Cincinnati on May 8 after being designated for assignment.


    Felipe Vazquez held on in the ninth for his 13th save in 17 opportunities.


    MARLINS 2, ORIOLES 0


    BALTIMORE (AP) - Jose Urena pitched eight innings of three-hit ball, Lewis Brinson tripled twice and Miami beat Baltimore stretch the Orioles' losing streak to a season-high eight games.


    In an interleague matchup between two offensively challenged last-place teams, the Marlins scratched out a couple of runs against Kevin Gausman (3-6) for their fourth win in five games.


    It's Baltimore's longest skid since a nine-game slide in July 2011. The Orioles have lost 15 of 17 overall and 10 straight at home, scoring only 14 runs.


    Urena (2-8) struck out four and walked one in his longest outing of the season. Urena, who started for Miami on opening day, is 2-1 in June after an 0-7 start. Kyle Barraclough worked a perfect ninth for his fifth save.


    BLUE JAYS 6, NATIONALS 5


    TORONTO (AP) - Yangervis Solarte homered from both sides of the plate, Devon Travis also connected and Toronto beat Washington for its fifth straight home victory.


    Justin Smoak broke a 3-3 tie with a sacrifice fly in the seventh inning and Solarte, batting left-handed, followed with a two-run shot off right-hander Justin Miller. Solarte was batting right-handed when he homered in Toronto's three-run third, a solo blast off left-hander Gio Gonzalez (6-3).


    Solarte is the ninth player in Blue Jays history to homer from both sides of the plate. The last to do it was Justin Smoak against Boston on July 1, 2015. The homers were Solarte's 13th and 14th of the season, extending his team lead.


    Seunghwan Oh (2-2) pitched one inning for the win and Ryan Tepera stranded the potential tying run at third base in the ninth to earn his fourth save in seven opportunities.


    PADRES 9, BRAVES 3


    ATLANTA (AP) - Hunter Renfroe hit a go-ahead, two-run single in San Diego's five-run seventh inning, Freddy Galvis had a three-run homer and went 5 for 5, and the Padres beat Atlanta.


    Freddie Freeman's 15th homer gave Atlanta a 3-2 lead in the fifth. Jose Pirela hit a two-run homer for San Diego in the first.


    Clayton Richard (6-6) allowed three runs, two earned, on six hits in six innings. Luis Castillo closed the game with two scoreless innings, and Galvis had a run-scoring single, giving him four RBIs, in the ninth. The five hits were a career high.


    Sam Freeman (1-3) gave up three runs in the seventh and took the loss in relief of Brandon McCarthy, who allowed two runs and eight hits in 5 2/3 innings.


    Freeman's homer gave him hits in 25 of his last 26 games. He led the NL with his .342 batting average entering the game.


    ASTROS 7, ROYALS 3


    KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Evan Gattis hit a go-ahead grand slam, Alex Bregman and Carlos Correa also went deep and Houston beat Kansas City for its ninth consecutive win.


    Charlie Morton (8-1) overcame another bout of wildness, at one point walking three straight batters, to last six innings for Houston. He allowed four hits and four walks while striking out nine.


    Brad Peacock, Tony Sipp and Collin McHugh each contributed a scoreless inning in relief.


    Jakob Junis (5-7) served up all three Houston homers, getting tagged for six runs on seven hits and a walk. It was his fourth straight loss, his last win coming against the New York Yankees on May 18.


    All but one of the Astros' wins during their streak has come on the road.


    BREWERS 13, PHILLIES 2


    MILWAUKEE (AP) - Brent Suter drove in two runs and pitched a season-high seven innings, Christian Yelich, Hernan Perez and Jesus Aguilar homered and Milwaukee beat Jake Arrieta and Philadelphia.


    Suter (7-4) allowed one run on six hits to win his fifth start in the last six, including a 12-3 victory over the Phillies six days ago. He pushed the Brewers to 43-27 for the best record in the NL.


    Milwaukee has scored 40 runs against the Phillies in four games, including 27 in three at Citizens Bank Park. Philadelphia has 13 in that span.


    Arrieta (5-5) came in 3-0 with a 2.03 ERA in five career starts at Miller Park, but the Brewers snapped that streak by reaching him for eight runs - four earned - on seven hits in 3 1/3 innings. He walked two and struck out one.


    ROCKIES 9, RANGERS 5


    ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Ian Desmond homered twice and Trevor Story had a pair of RBI hits in his first game near home as Colorado overcame a quick five-run deficit to beat Texas.


    It was Desmond's first game in Texas since the converted shortstop was an All-Star center fielder in his only season with the Rangers in 2016.


    Texas has a seven-game losing streak, its longest of the season. The Rockies had lost five of their previous six games.


    Jurickson Profar and Joey Gallo each hit two-run homers in the first when the Rangers jumped out to 5-0 lead against Chad Bettis (5-1), another Texas native.


    Desmond homered to lead off a six-run second against Yohander Mendez (0-1), the lefty making his first big league start.
