Fireworks Expected For Cardinals & Rockies

Fourth of July baseball has a full slate of games all day long, including some offensive fireworks expected between the St. Louis Cardinals and Colorado Rockies at 7:15 p.m. (ET).

We first have some late news for Tuesday night. New York is at Tampa Bay where the Bronx Bombers have lost all four meetings this year and the last eight dating back to last season. That’s surprising given the amount of Yanks fans that usually adorn Tropicana Field.

Ivan Nova (9-2, 4.03 ERA) pitches for the visitors and is a -125 favorite on the Don Best odds screen. The total is eight runs (‘over’ -120). He was 3-0 with a 1.26 ERA in five June starts and is 4-0 in six lifetime starts in Tampa Bay.

The 25-year-old Nova simply knows how to win games, going 26-8 all-time in the majors.

James Shields (7-5, 4.04 ERA) is pitching for Tampa. He tied a club record by allowing 14 hits in his last outing vs. Detroit. He struggled with his changeup in that contest and Tampa is 1-5 in his last six games overall (4.78 ERA).

Shields’ ERA is better at home this year (3.86), although having just a 2-3 mark. Don Best MLB analyst Kenny White points out that his Batting Average on Balls in Play (BABIP) is a bit unfortunate at .329, so expect his ERA to go down.

Switching back to the Cards and Rockies, the pitching battle is Adam Wainwright (6-8, 4.75 ERA) vs. Jeremy Guthrie (3-7, 6.56 ERA). The Cardinals are 180 home favorites with a total of nine.

Don Best’s Pat Williams loves the ‘over’ in this contest, thinking St. Louis can come close to the nine runs itself. The lineup has more than made up for the loss of slugger Albert Pujols at over five runs scored per game (first in the NL).

The 33-year-old right-hander Guthrie shouldn’t even be starting games at this point, pitching out of the 'pen his last four outings. The Rockies have been starting all lefties in a 4-man rotation recently and limiting pitch counts to 75, but the unorthodox experiment is not working.

Guthrie has at least pitched better away from Coors Field this year, 3.89 ERA in eight appearances (six starts). Wainwright isn’t having a great year coming off injury. He allowed seven earned runs last start vs. Pittsburgh, the third time he’s reached that number this season.

Wainwright’s BABIP is .326, so he’s also had some bad luck and should improve on his ERA going forward.

The Texas Rangers at the Chicago White Sox is another one to watch on Wednesday. This could be another ‘over’ game with Texas’ Scott Feldman (2-6, 6.13 ERA) going against Dylan Axelrod (0-1, 4.50 ERA).

The 26-year-old Axelrod is in his third stint in the big leagues and is making his fourth start this year. He’s not overpowering with an 89 mph fastball and is also a fly-ball pitcher. That is not a good combination at U.S. Cellular Field.

Don Best is sending out this game as a pick ‘em with the run total set at 10.

Rangers try to bounce back on the 4th

TEXAS RANGERS (50-31)

at CHICAGO WHITE SOX (43-37)


First pitch: Wednesday, 7:10 p.m. EDT
Line: Texas -115, Chicago +105, Total: 10

The divisional leaders in the AL Central and West will square off for some Independence Day baseball when the White Sox and Rangers play the second game of a three-game set.

The Rangers lost game one of the series and their second in a row, despite having won five in a row and 13-of-15 before that. With the 19-2 win on Tuesday, the White Sox registered their third double-digit run performance in their past five games. Scott Feldman takes the hill for Texas with a 6.52 ERA and 1.60 WHIP as a starter this season. In road starts, the numbers are even worse -- 8.83 ERA and 1.62 WHIP. He goes against Dylan Axelrod, who has just three starts on the season with a 4.86 ERA in those outings. In his last time out, he held the Yankees to six hits and two earned runs in seven innings, in Yankee Stadium. The White Sox are just 20-21 at home this season, but they have won three in a row there and facing such a struggling pitcher, should be able to move that mark up to .500. As a home underdog, take CHICAGO to win.

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

Play On - Any team (CHI WHITE SOX) - after a game where they had at least 10 more hits than their opponent, with a struggling bullpen whose WHIP is over 1.750 the last 10 games. (100-59 since 1997.) (62.9%, +47 units. Rating = 3*).

In Feldman’s last start, he allowed nine hits and three home runs to the A’s, while he now faces the team with the fifth-most home runs in baseball (99) and 12 in their past five contests. Feldman has started against the White Sox five times in his career, but not since 2010. In those starts, he has a 3.98 ERA and 1.17 WHIP. Averaging fewer than five innings per start this season, Feldman’s saving grace in this game could be the Texas bullpen. Rangers relievers have a 3.31 ERA and 1.08 WHIP this season, numbers that drop to 2.50 and 0.99 on the road, respectively. Still, as favorites, play against.

Axelrod enters this game never having pitched against the Rangers in his career. But he’ll be supported by an offense with the sixth-most runs in baseball (387) and fortunately for him, he’s facing one of the most hittable starters in MLB. Although the White Sox bullpen has 12 blown saves already this season, compared to just 16 saves, the numbers suggest they deserve better with a 3.83 ERA and 1.28 WHIP. Go with the home team on this July 4.

Betting tips: Three over umps scheduled to work Wednesday

Who’s hot

MLB: Angels are 16-5 in their last 21 road games.

MLB: Tigers are 44-14 in Verlander’s last 58 home starts.

MLB: Over is 13-5 in the Giants’ last 18 road games.

Who’s not

MLB: Padres are 19-39 in their last 58 road games.

MLB: Dodgers are 3-13 in their last 16 overall.

MLB: Rockies are 2-9 in their last 11 meetings with St. Louis.

Key stat

5 – Andy Murray has advanced to the Wimbledon quarterfinals in each of the last five years. England hasn’t produced a Wimbledon winner since Fred Perry won in 1936. Murray is set as a -222 favorite Wednesday against David Ferrer.

Injury that shouldn’t be overlooked

Adrian Peterson, Minnesota Vikings – Peterson is reportedly on track to start Week 1, but it sounds more like the team is going to be very careful with his surgically repaired knee. "He's so valuable to our organization that we have to be smart,” Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier told USA Today. “We'll tread lightly as far as Week 1 and how much he'll contribute on the field.” The Vikes are set as 4.5-point favorites at home to Jacksonville in Week 1.

Game of the day

New York Yankees at Tampa Bay Rays (-140, 8)

Notable quotable

"You can't play a defending Wimbledon champion or Grand Slam champion and not elevate your game. I had to weed out the riffraff and just get serious.” – Serena Williams after ousting former Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova to advance to the semifinals.

Notes and tips

Three of MLB’s most prominent over umpires are scheduled to work behind the plate Wednesday. Jim Reynolds is set to work the Cubs-Atlanta matchup and has seen the over go 15-5 in his last 20. Jim Wolf will call balls and strikes for the Angels-Indians tilt and the over is 24-9-6 in his last 39. Meanwhile the over is 24-9 in Chris Guccione’s games as he gets ready to work the Reds-Dodgers meeting.

Roger Goodell is standing by the NFL's investigation into the Saints' bounty system, informing the four players who received suspensions as a result of the alleged pay-for-play setup that their discipline has been upheld. That means a season-long suspension without pay for Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma. Also suspended without pay current Packers defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove (first eight games of 2012), Saints defensive end Will Smith (four games) and current Browns linebacker Scott Fujita (three games).

Travis Hafner is now expected to be activated from the disabled list Wednesday, instead of Tuesday as originally planned. Cleveland’s DH was hitting .242 with six homers and 23 RBI before hitting the shelf with a knee injury.

The New York Mets are reportedly interested in reacquiring their former closer, Francisco Rodriguez, from the Milwaukee Brewers. New York is looking to improve its bullpen and Rodriguez is one of the players it is targeting, a source told the New York Post on Monday. Rodriguez, also known as "K-Rod," has 292 career saves, including 83 in three seasons with the Mets (2009-11). He sets up John Axford in Milwaukee.Rodriguez has a 4.11 ERA this season and is making $8 million, which could make him expendable to the struggling Brewers.

Armadillo: Wednesday's six-pack

-- Rashard Lewis, whose middle name is Quovon (20 points in Scrabble) has earned $138,881,127 in salary in his 14-year NBA career. Wow.

-- Why is Toronto’s AAA farm team in Las Vegas? Wouldn’t it be easier for them to have it in Buffalo or Syracuse?

-- How often do hockey players skate during the summer?

-- We need a new TV reality show that chronicles travels of the Stanley Cup, especially during summer, when each member of the championship team gets it for a day.

-- This is the first year of the 4-day All-Star break, where all 30 teams get four days without games. I’m guessing it means that pretty soon they’ll move the All-Star Game to Wednesday.

-- I’m still baffled as to why any baseball player would bat right-handed. If you hit lefty, you’re two steps closer to first base. What advantage is there to hitting from the other side?


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


Armadillo: Wednesday's List of 13: Happy Birthday, America.......

13) Since 1918, only one pitcher has allowed 0 or 1 run in 10 of his first 14 major league starts. Clemens? Koufax? Seaver? Marichal? No, Oakland’s Jarrod Parker. Dwight Gooden allowed 0 or 1 in nine of his first 13 starts in ’84, but allowed two runs in his 14th start. Impressive kid, this Parker.

12) Last December 9, the A’s traded starter Trevor Cahill and reliever Craig Breslow to Arizona for Parker, reliever Ryan Cook and OF Colin Cowgill. Cahill is pretty good and signed a big contract, so he can’t play for Oakland, since the A’s are allergic to big contracts until they get a new stadium.

Arizona was glad to get him, but Parker is better, Cook has been terrific since being inserted as the Oakland closer, and Cowgill is pretty good as a spare outfielder. Breslow is alright as a situational lefty.

Say what you will about Billy Beane, but this was highway robbery. Now hopefully the A’s will get the go-ahead to build a stadium in San Jose and the A’s can keep some of these guys for a change.

11) SI.com reports that in 1991, 24M people watched the All-Star Game, last year, 11M watched it. Great idea by MLB, making FOX their broadcast partner.

10) Red Sox traded Kevin Youkilis to Chicago, paving the way for Will Middlebrooks to be their every day 3B; took Middlebrooks less than a week to tweak his hammy, and now Nick Punto mans the hot corner in Boston. Youkilis is 9-32 so far for the White Sox.

9) White Sox scored a total of two runs in Jake Peavy’s last four starts; Mariners were outscored 15-1 in Hector Noesi’s last four.

8) President Obama attended 33 re-election fundraising events in June, a month with 30 days in it. Doesn’t leave all that much time for being President. The amount of money these two candidates are raising is staggering, and not in a good way. Going to be a lot of favors to pay off when one of them wins in November.

7) Reds have a minor league SS named Billy Hamilton who stole his 100th base Monday night; that’s 100 stolen bases, this year. Its not even July 4 yet. Wow.

6) #125 on the PGA Tour money list is Gary Woodland, with $376,974 in earnings this season; #126 is DJ Trahan, with $373,367. Top 125 keep their card for next season. Billy Hurley jumped up to #135 with his top 10 at Congressional last weekend.

5) Dwight Howard probably doesn’t care much, but his actions over the last few months make him look like a spoiled brat, or worse. He needs to take a Dale Carnegie course, or hire a PR person to advise him.

Actually its too late for that. Hopefully he’s at least practicing his foul shooting this summer.

4) Is July 3rd the worst day to have a birthday? Worse than December 26 or September 11?

3) A woman named Jeneba Tarmoh thought she finished 3rd in the Olympic trials, I think it was the 100 meters; 3rd place would’ve gotten her into the London Olympics, obviously a huge accomplishment.

Imagine her disappointment/anger when US Track officials told her she finished in a dead heat and as it turns out, there is no protocol for breaking a dead heat, other than a runoff or a coin flip. Outstanding.

2) Apparently everyone agreed the coin flip was incredibly stupid, but Ms Tarmoh, convinced she finished 3rd in the original race, refused to race in a run-off and forfeited her chance to go to the Olympics—she’ll be an alternate if one of the top three can’t go.

1) My question is this: who, if anyone, is advising this woman? What does she gain by not running? If she runs again and loses, she gets publicity, maybe an endorsement or two, maybe a spot on Letterman or Jimmie Kimmel’s show. If she runs, she comes out of it looking good.

Maybe she beats the woman again and goes to London, then her star is brighter than ever. She gained nothing by sitting it out, and she may have tossed away a small fortune in the process. Why?

Public opinion: Bettors not afraid of Verlander’s price tag

MLB:

Minnesota Twins at Detroit Tigers (-244, N/A)

Justin Verlander went through a rough patch a few weeks ago, losing three straight starts. Since then he’s mostly been back to his usual routine by leading Detroit to four wins in his last five trips to the mound. However, he did serve up three homers in a 4-2 loss to Tampa Bay last week as a -123 favorite. Still, Minnesota’s Brian Duensing isn’t exactly the most imposing starter in the bigs and it looks like early bettors aren’t afraid of the big price tag.

Consensus: Tigers, 69 percent
