Sunday Night Baseball: Red Sox at Angels
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Boston Red Sox at Los Angeles Angels (-140, 8.5)

DREAM WEAVER

Jered Weaver is 2-4 with a 3.79 ERA for the Angels, although he’s pitching much better as of late. The righty has allowed just two runs in his last 14 innings of work, shutting down two good offenses in St. Louis and Detroit. Those outings were significantly better than his previous three starts in which he gave up four earned runs or more in games against Pittsburgh, New York and Baltimore. Weaver’s control has been pretty good except for two starts when he gave up four walks each time. He has not seen the Red Sox since a two-game stretch in August of last year when he picked up a win and a no-decision. Weaver allowed seven runs and 14 hits over 14 innings in those two meetings.

WELCOME BACK LACKEY

John Lackey is 6-5 with a 2.81 ERA for Boston. He has a 2.17 ERA in his last four starts; opponents are hitting just .246 against him overall this season. The Boston starter has been remarkably consistent allowing two runs or less in seven of his last ten outings. He has yielded just four walks in his last six starts and has struck out 18 batters in his last two games. Lackey faced his former team back in 2011 when he got shelled to the tune of eight runs and 10 hits in just four innings.

INJURY REPORT

The Angels and Red Sox do not have many big names on their injury lists. Los Angeles is without Peter Bourjos, Tommy Hanson, Jason Vargas, Sean Burnett and Ryan Madson, although none of those injuries are hampering their results. Vargas and Burnett could both return after the All-Star break. Madson is recovering from Tommy John surgery.

Boston is waiting for Clay Buchholz to get healthy as he deals with a neck strain and inflammation in his shoulder. They are also without Joel Hanrahan due to Tommy John surgery, while Stephen Drew is out with a hamstring ailment.

TRENDS

Red Sox are 6-1 in Lackey’s last seven Sunday starts
The under is 7-3-1 in Lackey’s last 11 Sunday starts.
Angels are 40-13 in Weaver’s last 53 home starts
The under is 37-13-6 in Weaver’s last 56 home starts.

HITTERS TO WATCH

David Ortiz 10-for-29 vs. Weaver
Dustin Pedroia 5-for-25 vs. Weaver

Josh Hamilton 12-for-27 vs. Lackey
Alberto Callaspo 5-for-14 vs. Lackey

MLB Top 3: Under the radar money pitchers
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As the MLB All-Star Game fast approaches, we thought we'd take a look at some pitchers who might not receive the plaudits of the Patrick Corbin's and Jordan Zimmerman's of the world. These guys don't have the dominant numbers of some of the top starters, but are earning money for bettors nonetheless.

Ubaldo Jimenez, Cleveland Indians (6-4, 4.67 ERA, +7.69 units)

Remember when Jimenez went 15-1 heading into the All-Star break in 2010? Well, he hasn't quite recaptured that form, but he's snagging some money for Cleveland backers. The numbers don't blow you away. The record is ho-hum, the ERA is pedestrian and his 1.47 WHIP puts him in the company of Joe Saunders and Scott Diamond. But the Tribe give him 5.24 runs of support and he manages to keep the club in ball games, thus giving them a chance to win. The Tribe have won four of his previous five starts.

Jorge De La Rosa, Colorado Rockies (8-5, 3.19 ERA, +6.23 units)

De La Rosa is currently No. 12 in the money standings and has been the Rockies' best starter. The southpaw leads the club in wins, ERA, strikeouts and quality starts. The Rockies are 12-6 in all 18 of his outings this season and a stellar 7-1 in his starts at Coors Field. De La Rosa is a big reason the Rockies are in contention in the NL West.

Jeanmar Gomez, Pittsburgh Pirates (2-0, 2.70 ERA, +10.24 units)

Gomez has only two victories on his record for the year, but the Pirates have won all eight of his starts. He is currently third in pitcher money standings and has capitalized on his starts this year. The emergence of Gerrit Cole and the return of A.J. Burnett from the DL has seen Gomez move back to the bullpen. The righty is a worth a look if the Bucs need to use him in the rotation at any point for the remainder of the season.

Yankees extend win streak to six; faves Sunday vs. O's
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The New York Yankees extended their winning streak to a season-high six games with a 5-4 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday.

Any $100 bettor would be up $548.59 if they had wagered on each game of the streak.

The Bronx Bombers have a pair of shortstops on the mend. Eduardo Nunez returned to the lineup Saturday after missing two months of action with a strained left oblique and All-Star SS Derek Jeter (ankle) began a rehab assignment in the minors Saturday night.

The Yankees are -137 in the finale of a three-game set with the O’s on Sunday and will send Hiroki Kuroda (7-6, 2.95) to the hill. Baltimore will counter with Jason Hammel (7-5, 5.19).

The Orioles are 0-6 in Hammel’s last six starts and only 1-7 in their last eight road games.

Lackey, Weaver take the hill Sunday in Anaheim

BOSTON RED SOX (54-35)

at LOS ANGELES ANGELS (42-45)

First pitch: Sunday, 8:00 p.m. ET
Line: Los Angeles -135, Boston +125, Total: 8

The Red Sox and Angels wrap up their three-game series Sunday night with a strong pitching matchup for this rubber match. Boston won Friday's game 6-2 and were rolling on Saturday with a 7-3 lead heading into the ninth, but the Angels came roaring back and won 9-7 in 11 innings.

Although L.A.'s Jered Weaver is much more accomplished than Boston's John Lackey in their careers, Lackey (6-5, 2.81 ERA) is in the midst of a career year, while Weaver (2-4, 3.79 ERA) is having a subpar season for his standards. Both teams are red-hot, as both the Red Sox and Angels are 9-2 in their past 11 games. While Boston has scored 5.8 runs per game during this nine-game stretch, L.A. has been doing it with pitching, allowing two runs or less in five of these 11 contests. Both offenses have been strong all season. The Red Sox lead the majors in runs (458), on-base percentage (.351) and slugging (.449), while the Angels place among the top-six teams in the majors in getting on base (.331 OBP, 5th), hitting (.268 BA, 6th) and slugging (.421 SLG, 6th). The Red Sox have won three of the five meetings this season, but the Angels have a slight 10-9 advantage in this series over the past three years. Boston has been a great road team at 23-19 (.548, 4th in MLB), but Los Angeles has struggled to win at home, going 23-25 (.479, 24th in MLB) at Angel Stadium of Anaheim.

Lackey (1.17 WHIP) not only has the best ERA of his 11-year career, but his 8.2 K/9 rate is the highest it has been since 2005, and his .246 opponents' BA matches his career-best mark set in 2006. Lackey has thrown eight quality starts in his past nine outings, going 5-1 with a 2.26 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 52 K's in 59.2 innings. This includes four straight quality outings where he's lasted at least seven frames in all four starts, tallying a 3-0 record with a 2.17 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, 27 K's and just three walks in 29 innings. Despite all these great numbers, Boston is just 7-7 when Lackey starts this season, including a 3-5 mark on the road where the right-hander sports a so-so 4.17 ERA and 1.37 WHIP. Considering Lackey pitched for eight seasons with Los Angeles, he's very familiar with the Angel Stadium mound. In 114 starts at this venue, he is 51-32 (.614) with a 3.66 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 7.2 K/9. However, in two starts as a visiting player in a Red Sox uniform, he's 2-0 with a 1.17 ERA and 0.98 WHIP. He hasn't faced his former team since 2011, but is 4-1 with a 4.32 ERA and 1.26 WHIP in five career starts against them. However, current players on the Angels roster have had great collective success versus Lackey in their careers, batting .356 with a .400 OBP and .586 SLG. OF Josh Hamilton has destroyed him the most (12-for-27, 4 HR, 9 RBI) while 3B Alberto Callaspo has also thrived (5-for-14, 1 HR, 5 RBI). Lackey knows he'll have to go deep into the game to earn the victory, as his injury-laden bullpen has been shaky all season with a 4.12 ERA (22nd in MLB) and 1.38 WHIP (25th in majors).

Weaver (1.21 WHIP) allowed 13 runs in 17.2 innings in his first three starts back from injury, but he seems to be finally hitting his stride. In the past two starts against excellent hitting teams, the Tigers (5.0 runs per game, 2nd in MLB) and Cardinals (5.0 runs per game, 3rd in majors), Weaver has allowed one run in seven innings for each outing, combining for 11 K's and two walks. The right-hander has usually been amazing in his own ballpark, going 34-11 (.756) with a 2.26 ERA at home from 2009 to 2012, but this season, he's a pedestrian 2-2 with a 3.48 ERA in five starts at Angel Stadium despite impeccable control (26 K's, 5 BB's). He's also been mediocre against the Red Sox in his career, going 3-5 with a 4.31 ERA and 1.26 WHIP over 13 starts. The last time he faced them -- last August at home -- he allowed five runs (four earned) and seven hits in seven innings of a no-decision. Although he's done a nice job of battling pesky 2B Dustin Pedroia (5-for-25, 7 K's), Weaver has struggled versus sluggers DH David Ortiz (10-for-29, 2 HR, 9 RBI) and 1B Mike Napoli (8-for-25, 2 HR). Weaver doesn't have a great relief corps to pick him up, as the L.A. bullpen carries a 3.90 ERA (20th in majors) and a 1.31 WHIP (18th in MLB)

Preview: Rangers (51-37) at Orioles (49-40)
Game: 1
Venue: Oriole Park at Camden Yards
Date: July 08, 2013 7:05 PM EDT


It's hard to imagine where the Baltimore Orioles would be without Chris Davis.

Manager Buck Showalter's team will be counting on another former Texas Ranger the rest of the way, too.

Scott Feldman gets the ball as the Orioles open a four-game set Monday night against the visiting Rangers, who try to avenge a loss in last year's wild-card game.

Acquired from Texas (51-37) in July 2011, Davis leads the majors with 33 homers and ranks second with 85 RBIs - matching his totals from all of last season. The Orioles (49-40) are also expecting to get a boost from Feldman (0-0, 3.00 ERA), who was acquired from the Chicago Cubs in a four-player deal last week.

In his first start since the trade, Feldman allowed two runs in six innings but didn't receive a decision in Wednesday's 4-2 road win over the White Sox.

"That's Scott," Showalter told MLB's official website. "You could see in his eyes that he got a little confident as the game went on. He's got a lot of things - catcher catching a guy for the first time, he's got a pair of pants he's never had on. It didn't look like they fit too well. Had a brand new pair of shoes that probably hurt his feet a little bit. I thought he handled all the adjustments in his life well, but Scotty's been down this road before."

After spending the first eight years of his career with the Rangers, Feldman became a free agent in October after his team option was declined. He threw seven scoreless innings against his former team May 6, leading the Cubs to a 9-2 win.

"I tried to just relax out there and everything, but obviously I know a lot of those guys and I've got a lot of respect for them," he said afterward. "I had a great seven or eight years over there and made some good friends."

The Rangers have taken 10 of 12 regular season matchups from Baltimore. Texas, though, couldn't keep up when it mattered most, falling 5-1 in last year's wild-card game.

The Orioles had dropped three in a row before pulling out a thrilling 2-1 win at Yankee Stadium on Sunday. Adam Jones provided all the offense with a two-run homer off Mariano Rivera in the ninth inning.

"It's off the greatest closer in the history of the game. I'll always remember it," said Jones, one of four Orioles named to next week's All-Star game. "You've got to win, and we haven't been playing that well. We need to tighten up. We need to clean it up around here."

Winners in 12 of 17, the Rangers beat Houston 5-4 on Sunday. A.J. Pierzynski hit a three-run homer and Adrian Beltre, batting .417 during a nine-game hitting streak, went deep for the fourth time in as many days.

Having made his way back from elbow reconstruction surgery, Joakim Soria threw a perfect inning of relief in his first big league appearance in nearly two years.

The Rangers now turn to Derek Holland (6-4, 3.13), who struck out a season high-tying 10 over six innings of two-run ball Wednesday in a 4-2, 10-inning loss to Seattle.

The left-hander has won each of his last three outings versus Baltimore while compiling a 1.42 ERA. Jones is 1 for 10 with six strikeouts in their matchups while Matt Wieters and J.J. Hardy are a combined 0 for 15.

Holland is 3-0 with a 2.40 ERA over a six-start stretch on the road.

Preview: Royals (41-44) at Yankees (48-40)
Game: 4
Venue: Yankee Stadium
Date: July 08, 2013 7:05 PM EDT


Following a rough end to their longest winning streak of the season, the New York Yankees are hoping Phil Hughes can continue his recent success and get them back on track.

The Yankees will try for their seventh win in eight games overall and sixth in a row against the Kansas City Royals on Monday night in the Bronx.

New York (48-40) had its six-game run snapped in stunning fashion Sunday, as Adam Jones hit a two-run homer off Mariano Rivera in the ninth inning of Baltimore's 2-1 victory. It was Rivera's second blown save in 31 opportunities.

"Whenever it happens you're kind of shocked, that's how good (Rivera) is,' manager Joe Girardi said.

Rivera is looking to reach 30 saves for the 15th time, which would break a tie with Trevor Hoffman for the major league record.

Hughes (4-7, 4.55 ERA) could give him the opportunity to achieve the milestone in this game, given how he's pitched in his last two starts. The right-hander has yielded three runs in 15 innings while going 1-1 in those games.

He allowed one run over seven innings to snap a three-start losing streak with a 7-3 victory at Minnesota on Tuesday.

"You want to keep that ball rolling,' Hughes said. "Hopefully it's the start of a good stretch I can roll off here.'

He'll have to pitch better at Yankee Stadium, where he's lost four straight starts with 9.00 ERA.

Despite a 6.10 ERA in seven career starts versus the Royals, Hughes has gone 5-1 in those games and has won his last five matchups. He gave up six runs and two homers over 5 2-3 innings of an 11-6 victory at Kansas City on May 10 in the latest one.

The Yankees have given Hughes 31 runs of support in those five consecutive victories.

Mike Moustakas and Jarrod Dyson delivered the home runs off Hughes on May 10, though they're a combined 3 for 16 with seven strikeouts against him lifetime.

Teammate Eric Hosmer is hitless in seven career at_bats against Hughes, but comes in having gone 15 for 37 with five homers and nine RBIs in his last nine games.

The Royals (41-44), who haven't lost consecutive contests since a four-game skid June 18-22, begin a seven-game trip after finishing a 3-3 homestand with a 10-4 defeat to Oakland on Sunday.

"We've just got to be more consistent,' Hosmer said.

After a solid start to the season, Kansas City's Jeremy Guthrie (7-6, 4.29) hasn't been able to find his form in the past four starts, going 0-3 with a 6.95 ERA.

The right-hander allowed five runs over 6 1-3 innings and left without a decision in a 6-5 win over Cleveland on Wednesday.

Guthrie had dropped seven straight decisions against New York before giving up one run over seven innings of a 4-2 victory at Yankee Stadium on July 29, 2011. He's 4-9 with a 5.32 ERA in 15 career starts versus the Yankees.

Vernon Wells hit a pair of home runs to help New York sweep the three-game series in Kansas City from May 10-12. He's gone 8 for 21 (.381) in his last five games against the Royals.

Billy Butler went 1 for 12 in that series, leaving him at 2 for 20 in his last five games against the Yankees.
