Rays And Yankees Close Out Series In Bronx

The Yankees are 6-9 when CC Sabathia takes the ball against the Rays.

It can often be a double-edged sword when we have a quick rematch of starting hurlers. That is especially true when it's a battle we've seen often in recent seasons, and that is the backdrop when the Tampa Bay Rays and New York Yankees once again pique our interest with an outstanding matchup of southpaws on Thursday to close the crucial AL East series.

CC Sabathia and the Pinstripe Posse opened as $1.45 favorites in the 7:05 p.m. (ET) first pitch at the House That George Built. Tampa Bay's David Price slings in opposition with an 7½-run total that leans 'over.'

Sabathia and Price met exactly four weeks ago on the same diamond, and it was the Yanks who scored a 5-3 win to reward NY backers who were paying -135. Sabathia's stake to being the staff ace of the mighty Yankees since he joined the team for the '09 season is well deserved, and New York is a healthy 8-3 with their rotund lefty on the hill this campaign.

Still, the Rays in general, and Price specifically, have given Sabathia trouble with the Yanks 6-9 in his 15 career starts while wearing pinstripes vs. Tampa Bay. Price checks in Thursday with the Rays 8-5 in his 13 lifetime assignments against New York, and they were a perfect 5-0 when he matched up with Sabathia before May's tussle.

There are some conflicting totals trends for these pitchers; the 'under' is 6-5 in Price's starts, including each of his last four outings, while the 'over' has cashed in Sabathia's last two trips to the mound and seven of 11 for the season.

New York took Game 1 of the set on Tuesday by a 7-0 count. The Yankees were -130 for that contest and -145 for Game 2 on Wednesday, with those results still pending.

Tribe & Tigers Close Motown Series With Matinee
The close-knit races in both East Divisions have served to push the other geographical sets to back burners. Simmering among the groups is the AL Central that was supposed to belong solely to the Detroit Tigers. The Tigers are instead a hunter, instead of the hunted.

Detroit and the Cleveland Indians are indeed on the prowl of the elusive Chicago White Sox as the Tigers and Tribe complete a key series in Motown with a Thursday afternoon affair (1:05 p.m. ET). Cleveland trots Derek Lowe to the Comerica Park bump in a game that opened as a pick against Detroit rookie Casey Crosby. The total is either nine favoring the 'over' or 9½ with an 'under' lean depending where you look.

Cleveland halted a 7-game losing skid in Detroit with a 4-2 victory in Tuesday's opener, which closed with the Indians +145 underdogs. Game 2 on Wednesday found Detroit once again significant 160 chalk with a 9-run total.

Atlanta was simply looking to dump some salary when dispatching Lowe to the Indians in an offseason deal. Lowe lost 17 games for the Braves with a 5.05 ERA last year, and was seen as just a veteran innings eater for a suspect Cleveland staff. Instead, he has elevated his game and his status to ace of the Tribe's rotation.

Cleveland is 7-4 behind Lowe with his backers up about $3.20 so far. He will be facing the Tigers for the first time in about four years, his last start vs. Detroit coming in a 2008 interleague contest while Lowe wore a Dodgers uniform.

Crosby was called up on June 1 to take the rotation slot left vacant by Doug Fister's second stint on the DL for 2012. His MLB debut came against the Yankees and certainly didn't go as either Crosby or the Tigers hoped. He was chased one out into the fourth and ultimately charged with six runs, half of them coming plateward on a Curtis Granderson bleacher bomb.

Detroit owned this matchup from 2009-11, winning 35 of the 54 clashes. The Motown Cats were also on a 13-2 run at Comerica entering Wednesday. Cleveland served notice a couple of weeks ago at home that the Tigers' overall dominance might be coming to an end with a sweep to stop a 10-game Detroit string of dubyas. It should be pointed out, however, that the Indians opened 2011 with a broom job at home before losing 12 of the final 15 meetings on the slate.

Yankees try to stay hot vs. slumping Rays

TAMPA BAY RAYS (31-24)

at NEW YORK YANKEES (30-24)


First pitch: Wednesday, 7:05 p.m. EDT
Line: New York -140, Tampa Bay +130, Total: 9½

After shutting the Rays out 7-0 in the series opener Tuesday, the Yankees will look to move past Tampa in the AL East standings with another win Wednesday.

Ivan Nova takes the hill for the Yankees, who always seem to win games when he starts, even when he doesn’t pitch his best. The Yankees have won eight of Nova’s 10 starts this year, despite his 5.60 ERA and 1.58 WHIP. Nova has a 3-0 career record versus Tampa Bay with a 3.56 ERA and 1.22 WHIP, with the Yankees winning all five times he has started against the Rays in his career. Getting a whopping 8.62 runs per game of support (sixth-most in majors), Nova usually just has to pitch mediocre in order to get the victory. On Wednesday he faces Alex Cobb, who has a 3.71 ERA in three starts this season. Cobb has started once against the Yankees in his career, allowing one earned runs on just three hits in six innings. His last outing from this year was his worst of the 2012 campaign, allowing nine hits and four earned in five innings to the White Sox. And Cobb may have trouble with run support in this game as the Rays have notched just 20 runs (2.9 per game) in their past seven games, a span in which they are 2-5. On the other hand, the Yankees bats are hot, scoring 5.6 runs per game and slugging .478 in their past 12 contests (9-3 record). As favorites, expect NEW YORK to win again.

This rare four-star FoxSheets trend also favors the Yankees:

Play On - All favorites with a money line of -125 to -175 (N.Y. YANKEES) - starting a well-rested pitcher who is working on 5 or 6 days rest, with a well-rested bullpen - threw 4 innings or less over last 3 games. (53-11 over the last 5 seasons.) (82.8%, +37 units. Rating = 4*).

The Yankees have done well against the Rays at home, winning three of four this year and going 13-9 against them over the past three seasons at Yankee Stadium. To Nova’s credit, even though he has given up a fair number of runs this season, he still makes it deep into games, averaging more than six innings per start. Once he gets that far he is supported by the spectacular Yankees bullpen that has a 2.78 ERA on the season with 14 saves and only two blown opportunities. The New York lineup appears to be fully intact, as star 2B Robinson Cano (forearm) is expected to play. The Yankees should be in good position to secure a series victory in this game, play on them.

The Rays are just 12-13 on the road this season and will need their bats to heat up to compete in this game. Tampa Bay has just a .235 batting average on the season (fifth-worst in MLB), which must improve to accommodate its pitching. And their bullpen has been strong overall with a 3.45 ERA, but that mark jumps to a painful 5.62 on the road. And despite the Rays stellar 23-12 record (.657) against right-handed starters, they are hitting a paltry .236 with a .308 OBP in these games. Tampa Bay is cold and difficult to put confidence in on the road right now. Play against.

Wednesday’s betting tips: M’s starter going on short rest

Weather to watch

Texas Rangers at Oakland Athletics – 12 mph winds are expected to blow out to right-centerfield.

Who’s hot

NBA: Thunder are 6-1-1 ATS in their last eight games overall.

NHL: Kings are 9-1 in their last 10 playoff games as a favorite.

MLB: Home team is 5-0 in umpire Alfonso Marquez's last five games behind home plate. He's scheduled to work Wednesday's Royals-Twins matchup.

WNBA: Minnesota Lynx are 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games overall.

Who’s not

NBA: Spurs are 1-4 ATS in their last five road games.

NHL: Under is 1-4-1 in the Devils' last six road games.

MLB: The Chicago Cubs are 0-4 in Paul Maholm's last four starts.

WNBA: Seattle Storm are 1-10 ATS in the last 11 meetings with Minnesota.

Key stat

8.5 – The New Jersey Devils have just three power-play goals over the last two series, spanning 35 chances with a man advantage (8.5 percent) and have yet to connect with the man advantage in the Stanley Cup finals. The Devils failed to score on any of their six power plays in Game 3’s shutout loss to Los Angeles and are set as +170 underdogs in Wednesday’s Game 4.

Injury that shouldn’t be overlooked

Aramis Ramirez, Milwaukee Brewers – Ramirez sat out his second straight game Tuesday with a strained left quad injury and reportedly isn’t close to 100 percent. He’s hitting just .240 but has five homers and 30 RBI in the middle of the Brewers’ order.

Game of the day

San Antonio Spurs at Oklahoma City Thunder (-5, 201.5)

Notable quotable

“You know, championship teams win on the road, and Oklahoma City just did that. So they've proven they're a championship caliber team. We have to go do that. If we can't win on Wednesday, we're not a championship caliber team. It's as simple as that. You look at anybody who's won championships, and they've won on the road as the process goes along. It's what you do. And they just did it. So we need to do the same thing to hold serve." – San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich ahead of Game 6.

Notes and tips

The Seattle Mariners send struggling starter Heator Noesi to the mound Wednesday against the Los Angeles Angels on just three days’ rest. Seattle was forced to skip Felix Hernandez in the rotation this time around as the ace deals with a sore back, forcing Noesi to move up. He hasn’t won a start in a full month and gave up three homers and six earned runs before getting the hook after 4 1/3 innings on Saturday. Seattle opened around +140 for Wednesday's game.

The Minnesota Lynx are closing in on the best record to start a season in WNBA history. Minnesota has won its first seven of the year – two away from tying the mark set by the 2001 and 2003 L.A Sparks - but the Lynx feel like they need to be better. They have dropped three of their last five against the number. "We're going to have to clean it up; we're not going to just rest on 'Yeah, we got the win," Maya Moore told reporters recently. "When we play at our best we feel unstoppable, and we still haven't played at our best." Minnesota is a 12-point favorite Wednesday at home to Seattle.

Armadillo: Wednesday's six-pack

Phil Steele's college football magazine is out; lot of great info in there for the coming season. Here are the six teams that had the best turnover ratios in the country last season.......

6) NC State, +14-- Senior QB Glennon back after 31 TDs, 12 INT LY.

T3) Wisconsin, +16-- Former NC State QB Wilson gone after one year.
T3) Houston, +16-- Coach Sumlin won, then took off to Texas A&M.
T3) Toledo, +16-- Coach Beckman won, then took off to Illinois.

2) LSU, +20-- Are now +51 in turnovers, the last five seasons.

1) Oklahoma State, +21-- Lost seven starters on offense; have a new QB.


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


Armadillo: Wednesday's List of 13: Random midweek stuff.........

13) So far this season, 39 pitchers (20 in NL, 19 in AL) have pitched 9+ innings in a game; those pitchers are a combined 36-1, 0.41 in those 39 games, with Jake Peavy the only pitcher to lose (1-0). Cliff Lee (10 IP) and Matt Cain hooked up in a scoreless duel out west, with neither pitcher getting a decision. Everyone else won their start. But what happened to those 39 pitchers after going nine?

12) In their next start after going nine (five of the 39 have yet to make that next start), those same pitchers are 12-10, 3.23; in their second start after going nine, they drop to 7-13, 5.75 and in the third start out, 7-10, 5.14. So the question needs to be asked, is it wise, in this day and age of coddling pitchers, to let a guy go nine innings?

11) Cain, Peavy and Johan Santana are the only pitchers to go nine in consecutive starts this season; Cain/Peavy combined to go 0-1, 3.86 in that third start, while Santana’s third start, with two days’ extra rest after his no-hitter, will be Friday in the Bronx.

10) If you take the three starts after a pitcher goes nine, you see that the over is 46-30-6 in those games. Do what you want with that information.

9) Lakers picked up option on Andrew Bynum for next year, a $16.1M option; for that much cash, he should have to at least pretend to pay attention in every huddle—if you make $16M, you’re supposed to be a team leader. How about acting like one?

8) Five colleges had guys taken in the first round of both of NFL/MLB drafts this year: LSU-Stanford-Texas A&M-Oklahoma State-Mississippi State.

7) Typical Clippers; they have their best season in 20 years, but then let their GM walk to Portland, bringing their franchise’s momentum to a screeching halt. Its just no way to run a business.

6) Spurs are on a 3-game losing skid but still have life; last NBA champ that had a 3-game skid during the playoffs: the ’04 Pistons, who lost Games 3-5 in the second round, against the Nets.

5) John Mellencamp’s son will walk-on as a football player at Duke this fall; thought he might go to Indiana, where one of the buildings near their basketball arena is named after the famous singer.

4) Attendance at baseball games in the Bronx is down 1,542 fans a game (3.6%) this year, after being down 3% last year; the arrogant bastards who run the franchise are blaming StubHub. I’m blaming the fact that the damn tickets are just too freakin’ expensive!!!! Oh yeah, and the $9 beers don’t help, either.

3) Forgot to mention this when I was in Las Vegas last month; my rental car had a keyless ignition, just pushed a button to start the car. Never saw that before. Would’ve been nice if someone had told me that the car won’t start unless you also had your foot on the brake. Had to figure that one out on my own, and I'm not that smart. Took me a while

2) Mets-Nationals game Tuesday night wasn't terribly well-played, but it was a facinating game, filled with strategy and twists/turns, with Valdespin hitting a homer/double, then making two crucial errors, and he didn't even get into the game until the sixth inning.

Baseball without the DH is a hell of a lot more interesting; makes managers think more and do more, and thats part of what makes baseball great. This game was a perfect example of that.

1) Then there are the Miami Heat, on the brink of another playoff failure; James/Wade combined to shoot 21-47, the rest of the team 11-35. Bosh got back from his injury and had six offensive rebounds in 12 minutes, but why did he only play 12 minutes?

Spurs/Celtics were both up 2-0, now both have to win road games to keep their seasons alive; who would've thought that?

Public opinion: Spurs-Thunder bettors love the over

Odds and consensus percentages current as of 8 p.m. ET, Tuesday.

NBA:

San Antonio Spurs at Oklahoma City Thunder (-5, 201.5)

Not long ago, the Spurs were unbeatable. Now they’re a loss away from elimination. Oklahoma City has all the momentum and those books that posted early lines of Thunder -4.5 quickly moved to -5. Meanwhile, bettors are jumping at the over.

Consensus: Over, 71.4 percent

NHL:

New Jersey Devils at Los Angeles Kings (-180, 4.5)

The Los Angeles Kings have absolutely dominated the Devils in the finals – at least on the scoreboard. The Kings have outscored New Jersey 8-2 through the first three games. Los Angeles has allowed three goals in just two games during the postseason.

Consensus: Kings, 62.9 percent

MLB:

Texas Rangers at Oakland Athletics (+140, 7.5)

Texas’ Colby Lewis has been hot and cold for the last little while, but did allow just two earned runs in his last trip to the hill. Texas’ offense, putting up a league-best 5.51 runs per game, continues to sway bettors.

Consensus: Rangers, 64 percent.

WNBA:

Seattle Storm at Minnesota Lynx (-12, 147)

Minnesota keeps rolling along after capturing last season’s title, but the word is out on how good this Lynx club is. While Minnesota is 7-0 straight up this year, the team is just 4-3 against the spread, dropping three of its last five against the number.

Consensus: Over, 60.2 percent
