    Altuve is Astros DH vs. Red Sox in ALCS Game 3
    October 16, 2018
    By The Associated Press



    HOUSTON (AP) Six-time All-Star second baseman Jose Altuve is a designated hitter for the Houston Astros in the playoffs for the first time.


    Astros manager A.J. Hinch has Altuve as the DH for Game 3 of the American League Championship Series against Boston. Altuve bruised his right knee during the playoffs and it is still bothering him. Last year's AL MVP has dealt with right knee soreness since July, when he went on the disabled list for the first time in his career.


    Altuve was still batting second against the Red Sox and right-hander Nathan Eolvadi on Tuesday night. Marwin Gonzalez, who had played left field the first two ALCS games, moved to second base. Tony Kemp was the left fielder.


    For the Red Sox, Eduardo Nunez was starting at third base over left-handed hitting Rafael Devers against Houston lefty Dallas Keuchel. Devers was 2 for 3 with a walk, two runs scored and an RBI in the Red Sox's 7-5 victory in Game 2.

    Game 4 - Brewers at Dodgers
    October 16, 2018
    By BetOnline.ag



    Tuesday MLB Best Bet


    Milwaukee Brewers vs L.A Dodgers – Game 4



    Game 3 of the NLCS was one where the Milwaukee Brewers did not want to sit around and waste time trying to gain back home field advantage in the series. An early 1-0 lead after the 1st inning ended up being enough for Milwaukee, but the early lead allowed the Brewers entire team to settle down on the whole and it enabled their highly successful bullpen to go out there in familiar roles and execute like they have all year for this team.


    Now it's up to the Dodgers to respond or L.A will be staring a 3-1 series deficit square in the face. The lack of simply playing contact baseball at times hurt the Dodgers in Game 3, as every time they got runners in scoring position, those HR swings from the batters seemed to follow. The Dodgers are going to have to find a way to play with a lead in this series soon because if it weren't for that Justin Turner HR late in Game 2, this could easily be 3-0 Milwaukee right now.


    So after yesterday's Milwaukee win went according to plan, how am I looking to wager on this game?


    Let's break it down:


    BetOnline.ag: Milwaukee (+138) vs L.A Dodgers (-148); Total set at 7.5


    If you read yesterday's piece, you'll know that my Milwaukee ML play last night was in part because of my belief the Brewers will end up winning this series. I viewed the odds as too steep on L.A with a rookie starter on the hill, and commented that I was pretty sure the Brewers would be smaller underdogs here in Game 4, especially if they won Game 3. Well here we are, with Milwaukee sitting close to +140 rather than +160ish it was at last night, and this time we've got a respected vet in Rich Hill on the hill for the Dodgers. That's a much more enticing spot and price to back L.A for one game, and had these been the odds yesterday I'm not sure I would have even played Milwaukee at all.


    Yet, as enticing as a play on the Dodgers tonight may be, the same issues are really still there for L.A. Yes, Walker Buehler looked good outside of maybe four or five at bats in the loss, but it's not like he got any help from his teammates when the game was still 1-0 and 2-0, as this Dodgers offense appears to be currently dying by the HR ball. They get to face a guy in Gio Gonzalez tonight – who they roughed up in 2 IP in Game 1 – which may help kickstart things for this Dodgers offense, but I'm still not looking to back L.A tonight.


    As I said earlier, Milwaukee is a couple of batters away from being up 3-0 in this series, as it's really been one dominated by the Brewers. Yet the team that finished the year with more wins and has dominated this series continues to come in as a disrespected underdog and that's still the only way I can look on the ML. That's not to say that's where I'm going tonight, but it is Milwaukee ML or pass for me in terms of the side.


    However, in terms of the total, this number seems a touch too low given the quality of starters we've got on the hill and the situation for both teams. L.A knows they can't fall down 3-1 by any means, but Milwaukee isn't just going to be satisfied with just a 2-2 split after four games. Milwaukee wants to go back home with at least two shots at closing out this series (if they play at home again at all), and with Clayton Kershaw looming for Game 5, Milwaukee's got to strike again tonight.


    So while the 'over' is a highly popular play right now when you look at the betting percentages (85%+) on VegasInsider.com, it's one that I have a tough time arguing against. Gonzalez is nothing more than a “see how long you can go” opener for the Brewers tonight, while I'm not so sure trotting another lefty out there against this Brewers lineup is ideal for the Dodgers. Milwaukee roughed up the lefty Kershaw in Game 1, and got to lefty Ryu early in Game 2. The Brewers were just an average offense vs southpaws this year, but something appears to have clicked for them in that regard during the postseason.


    The L.A bats being a little cold right now and so reliant on the HR ball is a concern for the 'over' here, but if they connect on a HR at the right time (2 or 3-run shot) then this total shrinks up in a hurry. That's the risk I'm willing to take here in a game where the offense we saw from both clubs in Game 1, returns here for Game 4.

    Red Sox say they are not sure when Sale available
    October 16, 2018
    By The Associated Press



    HOUSTON (AP) The Boston Red Sox were still unsure Tuesday when lefty ace Chris Sale would be available to pitch again.


    Speaking before Game 3 of the AL Championship Series, Boston manager Alex Cora said Sale was still on his way to the ballpark and would go to the training room when he arrived. The manager also said Sale might throw a bullpen session, possibly during the game against the Houston Astros.


    ''I haven't talked to him today, so I don't know how he feels, if he feels weak or whatever. But we'll know,'' Cora said.


    Sale, the potential Red Sox starter for Game 5 on Thursday night, was released Monday from Massachusetts General Hospital. He was hospitalized Sunday night for observation for what the team has called a stomach illness.


    ''First and foremost, we care about his health and how he's doing. Once we found out he was doing OK, we just wait until he gets back and talk to him,'' said Rick Porcello, the Red Sox starter for Game 4. ''None of us really know what happened.''


    The team hasn't specified the ailment or treatment. Cora said Sale started feeling ill and throwing up after starting the series opener Saturday night at Fenway Park, then went to the hospital early Sunday morning. The manager said it was nothing serious.
