Some Tuesday MLB Helpful Information

MLB Top 4: Hitters who sizzle in September

With the calendar flipped to September and pennant races in full swing, the focus shifts to hitters who excel in the final month of the regular season. September sluggers often make the difference between their team playing for the title and missing the postseason altogether.

Here are four hitters who heat up when the temperatures start cooling down:

Robinson Cano, New York Yankees

The perennial All-Star second baseman tends to hit well all year-round, but he saves his best work for the end of the season. Cano is a .323 career hitter with 30 home runs in 215 September games - and if you include regular-season games played in October, his average rises to .332.

The Yankees continue a three-game series against the visiting Chicago White Sox Tuesday.

Carlos Beltran, St. Louis Cardinals

The veteran outfielder boasts a career-best .295 average in September, while his on-base percentage (.373) and OPS (.889) are also their highest over the season's final month. One bizarre note: 23 of Beltran's 74 career triples have come in September.

The Cardinals visit the Cincinnati Reds for a pivotal four-game series continuing Tuesday.

Jacoby Ellsbury, Boston Red Sox

Ellsbury's September surges have helped contribute to the Red Sox being annual playoff contenders. The 29-year-old is a .330 career hitter for the month, with career bests in OBP (.376), slugging (.512), OPS (.888) and home runs (17); he has also been strong in October, batting .333 in 21 at-bats.

The Red Sox continue a three-game series versus the Detroit Tigers Tuesday.

Chris Davis, Baltimore Orioles

Already enjoying a career-best season, good things may continue for Davis into the final four weeks of the season. The 27-year-old has a .308 career average in September - 20 points higher than any other month, and 40 points higher than his career mark - and is hitting .357 with three homers and eight RBIs in seven career October regular-season games.

The Orioles will resume a three-game set against the host Cleveland Indians Tuesday.

JIMMY BOYD
.
Free Pick on Chicago Cubs

The Cubs are 4-1 in Edwin Jackson's last five home starts. Jackson has a 3.89 ERA in his last three starts, compared to a 5.29 ERA from Miami's Tom Koehler. Miami is 3-7 in Koehler's 10 starts on the road this season. This matchup also falls into a system to play against road underdogs batting .240 or worse over their last 15 games when they are a blow average hitting team and facing a starting pitcher whose ERA is 4.20 to 5.20 in the National League. This system is 79-33 (71%) over the last five seasons.

The Cubs are averaging 4.2 runs per game at home while Miami is scoring a mere 2.9 runs per game on the road. When you look at how Miami has performed recently the advantage for Chicago is even greater. The Marlins are batting .203 as a team and scoring just 2.7 runs per game, with a 2-5 record in their past seven games. Both of these teams are bad, but Miami is definitely worse than Chicago. With the offense and starting pitcher matchups in favor of the Cubs, Chicago is an easy call in this game.
