Some Tuesday MLB Helpful Information

Rangers at Yankees: What bettors need to know

Texas Rangers at New York Yankees (+123, 7.5)

Yu Darvish will vie for his first victory in nearly six weeks on Tuesday when the Texas Rangers open a three-game series against the host New York Yankees. The major-league leader in strikeouts fanned 10 batters in his lone career outing versus New York on April 24, 2012. Darvish would be smart to keep an eye on promising rookie Zoilo Almonte, who wrapped up his first major-league series against Tampa Bay by going 7-for-11 with a home run and four RBIs.

Darvish will be opposed by Japanese countryman Hiroki Kuroda, who recorded his first victory since May 17 when he blanked his former team - the Los Angeles Dodgers - in his last trip to the mound. That victory was just the fourth in 12 games for the Yankees, who have mustered three runs or fewer in seven of those contests. Texas enjoyed a well-deserved day off after going 20 without one - capped by a fifth straight victory with a 2-1 triumph over St. Louis on Sunday.

TV: 7:05 p.m. ET, FSSW (Texas), YES, WWOR (New York)

PITCHING MATCHUP: Rangers RH Yu Darvish (7-3, 2.84 ERA) vs. Yankees RH Hiroki Kuroda (7-5, 2.78)

Darvish, who last won on May 16, was originally slated to pitch on Sunday against St. Louis, but saw his start pushed back to make room for Martin Perez. The young fireballer yielded five runs on six hits in as many innings to take the loss versus Oakland in his last turn. Darvish has pitched well on the road, winning three of four decisions while brandishing a 0.76 WHIP and limiting the opposition to a .155 batting average.

Prior to defeating the Dodgers, Kuroda posted an 0-3 mark in his previous five starts despite permitting just 14 runs. The 38-year-old is just 1-2 in his career versus Texas, despite striking out 16 batters and registering a 2.57 ERA. Kuroda is 5-2 with a 2.08 ERA at Yankee Stadium this season.

TRENDS:

* Rangers are 1-5 in Darvish’s last six starts.
* Under is 7-0 in Darvish’s last seven starts vs. American League East foes.
* Yankees are 5-1 in Kuroda’s last six home starts.

WALK-OFFS

1. New York 1B Mark Teixeira is still experiencing pain in his right wrist after more than a week removed from receiving a cortisone shot.

2. Texas 2B Ian Kinsler, who had the tiebreaking RBI single in the seventh on Sunday, has 11 singles during his seven-game hitting streak. Kinsler is 2-for-9 in his career versus Kuroda.

3. The Yankees have won 15 of their last 20 home games versus the Rangers.

Why we like the Tigers on Tuesday at -125...here we have two teams that are playing at two different levels at this point in the season. The Angels are experiencing a 8-13 June with a 33-43 overall record while the Tigers are experiencing a 13-8 June with a 42-32 overall record. The Angels will be pitching CJ Wilson who comes into Tuesdays game with a respectable 3.61 era on the season but does have a bloated road era of 4.91 through 40 innings. There are a few negatives that jump off of the page with Wilson; first off, he carries a 4.80 era in first innings this season where he has allowed 4 Doubles, 3 HRs, 11 BBs & 10 Ks through his 15 1st innings. Next, Wilson will be pitching this game on 5 days of rest, and on the season he has a 3.98 era on 5 days of rest where he has allowed 32 hits in 31 innings while allowing 5 HRs. Lastly, Wilson has made two starts IN Detroit since 2011 where he allowed a combined 15 hits, 11 runs & 8 BBs through 12 innings of work. This Tigers team has a combined .247 average against Wilson with 3 HRs through 158 ABs while Miguel Cabrera & Prince Fielder have a combined .445 average off of Wilson through 31 ABs. The Tigers will be pitching Rick Porcello who comes into this game with a 4.74 overall era but does come in with a 3.32 era over his last 19 innings of work where he allowed 15 hits on 2 BBs and 16 Ks. Porcello does have a 4.46 era at home on the season but there is room for encouragement as he has allowed just 3 HRs at home compared to the 10 HRs that he has allowed overall on the season. From a bullpen standpoint, the Tigers have the edge with a 3.99 era compared the Angels 4.15 era. With Porcello pitching deeper into games at home compared to Wilson on the road, the Tigers pen will have the advantage. From an offensive standpoint, the Angels are averaging 5.1 rpg over their last seven games with a .294 average while the Tigers are averaging 5.3 rpg over their last seven games with a .317 average as well as averaging 5.4 rpg with a .281 average and 18 HRs against LHPs on the season. A few trends to keep in mind is that the Angels are 2-3 after playing with a day off while the Tigers are 5-1 after playing with a day off. The Angels are 13-20 in road games while the Tigers are 26-13 in home games. Play on the Tigers on Tuesday at -125.
