Red Sox aim for 6th straight win Wednesday


BOSTON RED SOX (17-19)

at TAMPA BAY RAYS (23-14)


First pitch: Wednesday, 7:10 p.m. EDT
Line: Tampa Bay -140, Boston +130, Total: 8½

The Red Sox will look to continue their climb out of the AL East cellar, beginning a two-game series against the division-leading Rays.

After a dreadful start to the season, the Red Sox have found their groove, winning five straight games, including the past four by a combined score of 27-3. Clay Buchholz takes the hill for Boston in this one, having started the winning streak last week. Although he has a 4-1 record on the season, 2012 is not treating the young right-hander favorably with an 8.31 ERA and 1.97 WHIP in seven starts. He has just been the beneficiary of incredible run support as the Boston lineup is averaging 8.3 runs per start when he’s on the mound. Facing the Rays is always good news for him though—in nine career starts against Tampa Bay he is 5-2 with a 2.38 ERA and 1.11 WHIP, with opponents hitting a mere .197 off him. Jeremy Hellickson takes the hill for the Rays with a 3-0 record and 2.95 ERA in 2012. His worst start of the year came on April 14, facing none other than Buchholz and the Red Sox, when he gave up five runs in as many innings in a no-decision loss, while Buchholz gave up five runs in seven innings for the win. Those struggles reflect Hellickson’s career difficulties with the Red Sox, sporting a 4.99 career ERA and 1.47 WHIP against them. As underdogs, play on BOSTON to extend its winning streak in this one.

This three-star FoxSheets trend also favors the Red Sox:

Play On - Any team (BOSTON) - with a starting pitcher whose WHIP is 1.900 or worse on the season-AL, where team's hitters strike out 7 or more times/game on the season. (44-26 since 1997.) (62.9%, +29.2 units. Rating = 3*).

Although Boston’s rotation has struggled, the bullpen has been picking up the slack. Red Sox relievers have a 3.86 ERA on the season, a mark that improves to 3.21 in away games, a good sign for these road underdogs. And, despite Boston’s early-season struggles, it is 3-1 against Tampa Bay this season, outscoring the Rays 31-12 in that four-game set at Fenway Park from April 13-16. Buchholz is coming off his best outing of the year, holding Cleveland to three earned runs in 6.1 innings last Friday. If Buchholz can build upon this facing a familiar opponent without its best player (Evan Longoria, hamstring injury), the Red Sox offense should be able to do the rest of the work. Boston ranks among the majors’ top-four teams in runs (199, 2nd), batting average (.276, 3rd), on-base percentage (.339, 4th), and slugging (.460, 4th). Play on them.

The Rays have also been supported by a stellar bullpen, especially at home where they have a 1.81 ERA and 1.01 WHIP. Hellickson’s start against Boston was easily his worst of the season so far, not giving up more than three runs in any other start. The one spot of concern for Hellickson has to be that he doesn’t fan batters, with 29 strikeouts and 16 walks this season. He has also allowed eight home runs already. Homers and walks could be a problem against Boston’s big bats who take advantage of every opportunity they get. Avoid this home favorite.

Wednesday's betting tips: Perkins a GTD for Thunder

Weather to watch

Detroit Tigers at Chicago White Sox – 21 mph winds are expected to blow out to left-centerfield.

Cleveland Indians at Minnesota Twins – 19 mph winds are expected to blow out to right-centerfield.

Who’s hot

NBA: Celtics are 9-3-1 ATS in their last 13 road games.

NBA: The over is 4-1 in the Thunder's last five overall.

NHL: The under is 8-1-7 in the Rangers' last 16 overall.

MLB: Dodgers are 20-6 in the last 26 meetings with San Diego.

Who’s not

NBA: 76ers are 2-6 ATS in their last eight home games.

NBA: Lakers are 1-5 ATS in their last six road games.

NHL: Devils are 1-4 in the last five games at Madison Square Garden.

MLB: The Cardinals are 1-5 in Jaime Garcia's last six road starts.

Key stat

4 – New York Rangers goaltender Hernrik Lundqvist has faced 23 or fewer shots in each of the team’s last four games. New York is 3-1 in those games, including the 21-save shutout Lundqvist pitched in Monday’s 3-0 win over New Jersey.

Injury that shouldn’t be overlooked

Carlos Beltran, St. Louis Cardinals – Beltran sat out his second straight game Tuesday with some soreness in his surgically-repaired right knee. The outfielder is off to a great start this season with 13 homers, 32 RBI and a .295 batting average.

Game of the day

Boston Celtics at Philadelphia 76ers (-2, 172.5)

Notable quotable

“Another thing I've always said about K.G. is that he exerts so much energy in how he plays that sometimes when he got to the fourth quarter he would be tired. It's like a car. You've got so much gas, and if you're going to drive a thousand miles and you drive at a higher speed early, you're not going to have as much gas at the end. And I think Doc (Rivers) and their staff have done a phenomenal job as far as monitoring his time. And by doing that I think he's been able to have more left in the tank at the end of games." – Former Timberwolves coach and current Boston Celtics consultant Flip Saunders on Kevin Garnett. K.G. is averaging 19.5 points and 10.8 rebounds per game in the playoffs.

Notes and tips

Oklahoma City Thunder center Kendrick Perkins is set as a game-time decision for Game 2 against the Los Angeles Lakers. He was battling an ongoing hip issue and aggravated the injury in Game 1’s win, exiting the contest early in the third quarter. Perkins, Oklahoma’s main man to guard Andrew Bynum, had four points, one rebound and two blocks before leaving the opening game of the series. Bynum posted 20 points, 14 rebounds and a block for the Lakers.

Minnesota Twins DH Justin Morneau is expected to rejoin the lineup Wednesday after a stint on the DL with a sore wrist. He had four homers and nine RBIs to go along with a .230 batting average when he hit the shelf on May 7.

Maurice Jones-Drew wasn't in attendance as Jaguars organized team activities began Tuesday. The Jacksonville Jaguars were not expecting the NFL leading rusher in 2011 to attend the voluntary portion of the offseason program, but first-year coach Mike Mularkey indicated a direct message was being sent to the organization. "It's all voluntary," Mularkey said. "I wish he was here. He knows we wish he was here. He's talked about trying to get an extension for his contract."

Armadillo: Wednesday's six-pack

The Las Vegas Hilton is now called LVH since Hilton sold the property; here is a brief synopsis of my 8-day stay there........

-- Little bit isolated off the strip, but the monorail is good when it works and the staff at LVH is really helpful.

-- Sportsbook is tremendous; big, comfortable chairs, superior deli with lot of good food. Watching games there is top-flight.

-- There is an Elvis impersonator who does shows there who had them lined up all over the place for his show Sunday night.

-- Most showers in Las Vegas hotels are tremendous; this one was awful. Terrible water pressure, which got little bit better the last day.

-- Food in the Paradise Cafe was very good and they gave you a lot of it.

-- The bar by the craps table is open 24/7. Some very interesting people are there are 4am. Trust me on this.


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


Armadillo: Wednesday's List of 13: Mid-week thoughts as I settle back in....

13) Miami Heat is now 4-6 without Chris Bosh this season, losing 78-75 at home to Indiana, going 1-16 behind the arc. Series heads to Indiana 1-1.

12) You look at the relatively-obscure Pacer roster and realize that other than Leandro Barbosa, most of the Pacers played a lot of college ball. Not sure if it makes them more mature, more fundamentally sound or both.

11) There's a scapegoat in Anaheim, as Halos fired 13-year batting coach Mickey Hatcher, silently but loudly blaming him for the club's dismal start. Guess he didn't mesh well with Albert Pujols. Thats not good.

10) Phillies are a combined 4-9 in Halladay/Lee starts. Surprising.

9) Even worse, Giants are 2-6 when Tim Lincecum starts.

8) Then there is Derek Lowe, who is 6-1, 2.05 for Cleveland; he blanked the horrendous Twins Tuesday with a 127-pitch complete game, striking out no one, and getting only one miss on 48 Cleveland swings. Tribe put 29 balls in play, only got six hits, with 22 ground ball outs.

7) We quoted our new friend Tony the Cabbie up above; he must have been happy Tuesday, with Konerko/Pierzynski going 8-9 for the White Sox. He has both those guys on his fantasy league team. I'd tell you more about him, but Tony is a Cuban immigrant and I only understood about 40% of what he was saying to me. Terrific guy, though. Knows his baseball.

6) There is a golf course in Summerlin called Angel Park, and you can golf there at night- they've got lights. Arnold Palmer designed the course.

5) Some publicity-seeking jackass wrote an article this week saying that Tony Romo is a top 5 QB in the NFL. Let me see, that means, out of the group of QBs below, he has to be better than two of them, plus everyone else in the league:

Brady/both Mannings/Roethlisberger/Rodgers/Brees/Rivers. No way.

4) The casino at the M Resort is almost too nice; its pretty far from the Strip, and it is gorgeous. I felt guilty sitting at the bar, like I wasn't dressed well enough (I live in cargo pants/Adidas hightops). You can bet on any game in the NFL season (except Week 17) right now. We'll be talking about that more as the spring moves on and training camp approaches.

3) Butler and VCU are off to the Atlantic 14, replacing Temple/Charlotte. Temple will be a big loss for that league. A-14 is a weird league, far-flung and without a great TV contract. Interesting to see how Butler/VCU do in noving up in class from their previous leagues.

2) Only three weeks until the Phil Steele College Football magazine hits the newsstands. Can't wait; its the bible of college football.

1) It is 6:45am as I finish this up; time to hit the hay after flying home late Tuesday night. Vacations are excellent/necessary; coming home is good, but nothing screws up my sleep patterns more than eight days in the desert.

Public opinion: Wednesday's biggest consensus plays

NBA:

Los Angeles Lakers at Oklahoma City Thunder (-7.5, 195.5)

The Lakers said they were tired in Game 1’s blowout loss to the Thunder, and there’s no doubt fatigue played a part in the loss. However, early bettors aren’t sold on Kobe and Co. bouncing back in the second game of the series.

Consensus: Lakers 40 percent/Thunder 60 percent

NHL:

New Jersey Devils at New York Rangers (-130, 4.5)

The New York Rangers’ legs looked heavy through the first two periods of Game 1, just a couple days after they put the Capitals away. The third period was a totally different story as they jumped all over New Jersey and recorded a 3-0 victory.

Consensus: Devils 45 percent/Rangers 55 percent

MLB:

Minnesota Twins at Detroit Tigers (-185, 9.5)

The Tigers put eight runs on the board in the sixth inning Tuesday on their way to a 10-8 win over Chicago and most bettors are looking to go back to the well again Wednesday. The Twins have won just four road games all season.

Consensus: Twins 34 percent/Tigers 66 percent
