Preview: Astros (22-25) at Rockies (17-29)

Game: 1
Venue: Coors Field
Date: May 28, 2012 8:10 PM EDT

After one of their best stretches of the season, the Houston Astros once again hit a stumbling block on the road. A matchup with the Colorado Rockies might help end the Astros' woes away from home.

The Astros will try to avoid a third straight loss and send the Rockies to their 18th in 23 games Monday in the opener of a rare, scheduled day-night doubleheader.

Houston (22-25) is 16-10 at Minute Maid Park, but only 6-15 on the road. After wrapping up a 6-2 homestand last week and winning Friday's series opener in Los Angeles, the Astros dropped their final two games to the major league-best Dodgers including a 5-1 loss Sunday.

Houston gave up 12 hits - including five to Jerry Hairston Jr. - in the series finale and produced only two, Jose Altuve's triple to lead off the game and a sixth-inning single by Jed Lowrie. The final seven spots in the lineup went a combined 0 for 20.

"It's frustrating. We came up just a little short," Astros starting pitcher J.A. Happ told the team's official website. "That's a heck of a ballclub, and we had a chance to take a series from them."

Although Coors Field is traditionally hitter-friendly, Houston's pitching staff may be able to right itself against a Colorado lineup that's batting .239 during a 5-17 stretch. The Rockies (17-29) have also dropped seven of eight at home.

They had only five hits Sunday in Cincinnati but all five were solo homers, including two from Carlos Gonzalez. Still, Colorado fell 7-5 as the Reds hit four home runs of their own to set a record for most combined long balls (nine) in Great American Ball Park history.

"In defeat, I can't tell you how proud I am of this ballclub the way they stayed after it (Sunday)," Rockies manager Jim Tracy said. "There is nothing we could do about the first four innings of the game. Six of their seven runs cross the plate via the home run. You can't catch those."

Tracy's starter for Monday's opener, Juan Nicasio (2-2, 4.83 ERA), kept the ball in the yard Tuesday but gave up six runs and nine hits over five innings of a 7-6 loss at Miami. The right-hander is 0-2 with a 5.40 ERA over his last four starts.

Nicasio gave up one run over seven innings against Houston on April 8, but the Rockies' bullpen couldn't hold a one-run lead in a 3-2 defeat.

The Astros will counter with Wandy Rodriguez (4-4, 2.14), who earned his first win since May 2 on Wednesday. The left-hander gave up one run on a solo homer over seven innings of a 5-1 victory over the Chicago Cubs.

Rodriguez is 0-2 with a 5.18 ERA in his last four starts against Colorado, but allowed only three unearned runs over six innings against the Rockies in the clubs' April 6 season opener at Minute Maid. He did not get a decision in that 5-3 defeat, the only loss of that series for the Astros.

Houston was swept in a three-game series at Coors last Aug. 22-24 after winning seven of its previous nine there.

The Astros are expected to take advantage of a new rule that allows a 26-player roster for doubleheaders and call up Jordan Lyles (0-1, 5.29) from Triple-A Oklahoma City to pitch the nightcap. The right-hander, who made three starts in the majors before being sent down May 20, has never started against Colorado.

Alex White (1-3, 5.32) will start opposite Lyles for the Rockies and try to win back-to-back starts for the second time in his career. The right-hander gave up four runs and eight hits over six innings Wednesday in Miami but got credit for an 8-4 victory.

White is 0-1 with an 8.44 ERA in two career starts against Houston.

Preview: Brewers (19-28) at Dodgers (32-15)

Game: 1
Venue: Dodger Stadium
Date: May 28, 2012 8:10 PM EDT

The Milwaukee Brewers have two things in their favor in the opener of their four-game series at Chavez Ravine, one of which is the absence of Matt Kemp from the Los Angeles Dodgers' lineup for perhaps the last time.

The other is sending Shaun Marcum to a mound that's far away from Miller Park.

Marcum looks to continue his solid work on the road Monday at Dodger Stadium, while Los Angeles aims for a 10th win in 14 games without its superstar on the likely eve of Kemp's return.

Kemp hasn't played since May 13 because of a strained right hamstring, but he's eligible to return from the disabled list Tuesday and will do so barring a setback during a two-game stint at Triple-A Albuquerque.

The Dodgers (32-15) were a major league-best 23-11 - averaging 4.4 runs and hitting .262 - before Kemp went down, but they've been even better while he's been on the DL. Los Angeles has averaged 4.8 runs and won 9 of 13 without Kemp after Jerry Hairston Jr. had a career-high five hits in Sunday's 5-1 victory over Houston.

"Matt's arguably the best player in the game, and you hate to lose a guy like that because it can be pretty devastating for the team. But we feel we have a complete team,' Hairston said. "And even with Matt in the lineup, we're going to need everybody to contribute to be successful. Everybody's been doing that, and it's been fun.'

Even with some makeshift lineups - Sunday's featured Andre Ethier batting cleanup surrounded by eight hitters who'd hit a total of four homers in 2012 - the Dodgers have experienced no fall-off in their play.

They won't have it easy Monday, though, as Marcum (2-3, 3.93 ERA) looks to improve on his 2-0 record and 1.37 ERA in three starts against Los Angeles.

Only one of those came in the past five seasons - seven innings of one-run ball May 16, 2011, at Chavez Ravine - but there's ample evidence the right-hander can pitch well again. Marcum is 9-5 with a 2.45 ERA in 21 road starts since joining Milwaukee (19-28) last season, a far cry from his 6-5 record and 4.82 ERA at Miller Park.

Marcum, winless in his last four road outings despite a 2.88 ERA, gave up a season-high six runs and five hits - including a pair of two-run homers - in Tuesday's 6-4 home loss to San Francisco.

Marcum has given the Brewers a quality start in 16 of 21 road outings, and they could certainly use one considering the rotation has posted a 5.46 ERA as they've lost eight of 11. Armed with a 3-1 lead heading into the bottom of the sixth Sunday in Arizona, Randy Wolf couldn't make it through the inning and Milwaukee lost 4-3.

"It is frustrating the way things have been going,' Wolf said. "Once we feel like we are playing better baseball and get some wins, but things just kind of happened. Obviously the frustration is going to be palpable.'

To make matters worse, injuries are starting to pile up. A day after placing shortstop Cesar Izturis on the 15-day DL with a strained left hamstring, the Brewers lost first baseman Travis Ishikawa to a right oblique strain.

He'll also head to the DL, while Brooks Conrad will come up from Triple-A Nashville.

Conrad, Ryan Braun and the rest of the Milwaukee lineup will face Aaron Harang (3-2, 4.36), who will try to bounce back after surrendering five runs and nine hits in 4 1-3 innings Tuesday at Arizona.

The right-hander is 1-0 with a 1.93 ERA in two starts against the Brewers since the start of 2011. He gave up three runs over six innings April 19 in a 4-3 win at Miller Park.

Braun is 7 for 28 against Harang, but three of those hits were homers.

Monday's betting tips: Brew Crew blue behind Marcum

Weather to watch

San Diego Padres at Chicago Cubs – A 24-mph wind will be blowing out to dead center for this afternoon tilt. Temperatures will be in the high 80s, with a 20 percent chance of thunderstorms.

Who’s hot

MLB: Texas is 13-3 in Matt Harrison’s last 16 starts vs. losing teams.

MLB: The over is 9-4 in San Diego’s last 13 games vs. a lefty starter.

NBA: Boston is 4-0 ATS in its last four meetings with Miami.

Who’s not

MLB: The Brewers are 0-6 in Shaun Marcum’s last six starts vs. winning teams.

MLB: Cleveland is 2-5 in Josh Tomlin’s last seven home starts.

NBA: The under is 5-16 in the last 21 Celtics-Heat games in Miami.

Key stat

9 – That’s the average number of turnovers the Celtics committed in their three wins over Miami this season, compared to 20 turnovers in the lone loss. Point guard Rajon Rondo is the key to Boston’s chances. He averaged 18.7 points, 13.7 assists and 7.7 rebounds against the Heat. But in that lone loss, Rondo had seven of Boston’s 20 giveaways.

Injury that shouldn’t be overlooked

The light-hitting Padres, who were shut out Saturday and Sunday, could get a huge boost Monday with the possible activation from the DL of slugging OF Carlos Quentin, who is coming back from knee surgery. The 29-year-old went 4-for-7 with a homer and three RBIs in two rehab games at High-A Lake Elsinore. Last year, Quentin had 24 homers and 77 RBIs while playing for the White Sox. He hit 107 homers from 2008-11.

Game of the day

Boston Celtics at Miami Heat (-8, 180)

Notable quotable

"They're not going to ever quit. Last year, we beat them in five but it was a nine-game series, it felt like.'' -- Miami guard Dwyane Wade, on facing the Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals. Game 1 is Monday night in Miami.

Notes and tips

Oklahoma City's backdoor cover Sunday night, on a meaningless James Harden 3-pointer at the buzzer, dropped favorites to 12-3 ATS in the last 15 NBA playoff games. Monday night, the Heat is favored by 8 in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Devils forward Ilya Kovalchuk leads the NHL in playoff points with 18, and he’ll be counted on for a lot more when New Jersey faces Los Angeles in the Cup finals starting Wednesday. Kovalchuk is obviously over a lower back injury that caused him to miss Game 2 of the second-round series with Philly. "I missed that game against Philly and the doctors took care of everything and I’ve been feeling good since then," Kovalchuk said.

Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen said before Sunday’s game that he’s sticking with Heath Bell as his closer, despite pulling him from a second straight save chance Saturday. Bell has an 8.47 ERA, a strikeout-to-walk ratio of 10:14, and has blown four of 11 save opportunities.

Rockies OF Dexter Fowler (ankle) did not start for the fourth straight game Sunday, but should be able to rejoin the lineup Monday. Fowler has five homers, 19 RBIs and an on-base percentage of .336 in 42 games.

The Nats are in first place, but they’re not resting on their laurels. Washington is actively seeking to trade for a veteran reliever, according to ESPN.com’s Buster Olney. Washington’s bullpen is unsettled with Drew Storen (elbow) and Brad Lidge (hernia) sidelined and Henry Rodriguez struggling. Rodriguez blew three saves before being moved out of the closer’s role last week.

Public opinion: Monday's top consensus plays

NBA:

Boston Celtics at Miami Heat (-8, 180)

It’s a quick turnaround for the aging Celtics, who were pushed to Game 7 on Saturday by No. 8-seeded Philly. Miami has been off since Thursday night. And this series is where Avery Bradley’s absence could really be felt. Boston has no one capable of guarding Dwyane Wade, who scored 99 points in Miami’s three consecutive wins over the Pacers. However, Boston is 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings with Miami, winning three outright.

Consensus: Celtics 53 percent

MLB:

Cincinnati Reds at Pittsburgh Pirates (-110, 7.5)

Bettors are backing the Reds, who belted 17 homers in their just-completed seven-game homestand. But they're facing a tough customer in Pittsburgh starter James McDonald. He has a 2.18 ERA and a 0.82 WHIP over his last three starts. Cincy starter Bronson Arroyo is 6-6 with a 3.65 ERA in 14 career starts against the Pirates.

Consensus: Reds 62 percent

Armadillo: Monday's six-pack

We're going to go thru the over/under win totals for each NFL team in this space over the next week, division-by-division. Today, the NFC East:

-- Cowboys 8.5, over -$125-- Need a QB their stadium can be proud of.

-- Giants 9.5, under -$120-- SB champs went 9-7; what a country.....

-- Eagles 10, over -$135-- Had second-most turnovers in NFL LY.

-- Redskins 6.5, under -$130-- How good will RGIII be as a rookie?

Remember, what I've listed here are just odds, not any prediction.......


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


Armadillo: Monday's List of 13: Happy Memorial Day, everyone.........

13) The bandwagon is starting to fill up in Baltimore; they had a walk-up sale of almost 11,000 Friday night (including DDLohaus and family) and drew a total of 89,427 for three games with the Royals. Hopefully the O's can keep winning and people will keep coming out to the ballpark.

12) All five teams in the NL East are still over .500; big early series starts Monday when the Nationals visit Miami to play the Marlins.

11) Good God I feel old; I'm watching Pawn Stars, and a woman brings in a computerized horse racing analyst that Mattel sold back around 1980-- the woman wanted $150, she settled for $11. Rick laughed at her.

You entered all the info from the Racing Form into the Analyzer, and it was a tedious process, but it came up with selections. How do I know? Well, I may or may not have bought one way back when. Stupid is as stupid does.

By the way, I still have it, so if you'd like to try it out, let me know.

10) Saturday night, on American Pickers, the two guys bought a lunchbox that was shaped like an old Volkswagen bus; in the mid-60's, VW dealers gave them away when they opened a new dealership. How do I know? For three years in grade school, I brought that lunchbox to school every day.

They bought the damn thing on the TV show for $80, and said they could re-sell it for $150. Somehow, If I go downstairs, I'm guessing it won't be there anymore. Who knew I had such a valuable lunchbox?

9) Why didn't the Mariners start Dustin Ackley on his bobblehead night? Maybe because he's hitting .242. Just a guess.

8) San Diego pitcher Edinson Volquez is pretty good, but in six of his 11 starts, Padres haven't scored while he was in the game. Thats not good.

7) Clay Buchholz has started 10 games this season; he allowed 4+ runs in eight of ten, with Boston 5-3 in those games. The two games he allowed only two runs? The Red Sox lost both games. Go figure.

6) Tim Lincecum is 2-5, 6.41 so far this year; would you be worried?

5) Royals are now 0-6 when they had the previous day off.

4) Indians went to the south side of Chicago 3.5 games ahead of the White Sox, but gave up 35 runs in three games, and are now only a half-game ahead of the Pale Hose in AL Central, with favored Detroit three games back.

3) Last two times umpire Marty Foster worked the plate, the games went 14-13 innings; just a theory here, but I'm guessing Mr Foster will be calling a lot of strikes in his next game behind the dish, in order to facilitate a fast ballgame. Under, anyone?

2) Cubs have lost 12 games in a row, the Spurs have won 19 in a row; what is going to happen first, a Cub win or a San Antonio loss?

1) Friend of mine texted me tonight with this question: "Has there ever been a team as great as San Antonio and as boring at the same time?"

At what point do we begin to talk about the greatness of the Spurs, who are 9-0 this playoff season? So what they're not flashy? Dammit, we complain about showboats and me-first jackasses, so when we get a great team that is selfless, why not celebrate them?

Sunday's List of 13: In a perfect world, where I decide everything....
13) The drinking age would be 18; if you're old enough to go to war, you're damn sure old enough to have a beer.

12) That said, I'd raise the driving age to 17; 16 is too young to drive. Too many distractions. Of course, I'm 52 and always distracted. Go figure.

11) I'd get rid of the designated hitter, except for spring training and in the All-Star Game. If you can't play the field, then retire.

10) Speaking of the All-Star Game, I'd get rid of the National and American Leagues and go with geographic realignment, then whichever conference had the edge in interconference play would get home field edge in World Series.

Every third year, the All-Star Game would be US against the World.

9) No more Electoral College; the Presidential candidate who gets the most votes wins, regardless of what state anyone lives in.

8) I'd take the radios out of NFL players' helmets; coaches have six days to coach the players. On Sunday, just let the players play.

7) If I ran the Colorado Rockies, wouldn't have any 49-year old pitchers who can't get hitters out; we'd be releasing Jamie Moyer, maybe hire him as a coach or an announcer, but his playing days would be over. .

6) NBA playoff series would be best-of-3, the Finals best-of-5. You don't need seven games to determine which team is better, not in basketball. I'd also let kids jump right from high school to the NBA, and if they don't get on a roster the first year, they could enroll in a college for second semester, starting that January, and start playing ball the following fall.

5) Someone would put a Steak 'n Shake and In 'n Out burgers in Albany.

4) If I ran NBC, I'd tell Notre Dame to get in a conference for football, or no more TV money from us; they'd be scurrying to a league pretty quickly.

3) No more fighting in the NHL; I know lot of people within the game want to keep it. I think its a great game, with or without, but better without it.

2) If I were former used car salesman Alan R Selig, I'd use my vast power as Commissioner of Baseball to make the Wilpons sell the Mets. These people are either corrupt, stupid or both; why would you want them owning one of your most visible franchises?

1) I'd go along with Governor Christie in New Jersey and make gambling on sports legal in the whole country; legalize internet poker too. This could be happening soon; we'll see later this year.
