Friday's streaking and slumping starting pitchers
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Streaking

James McDonald, Pittsburgh Pirates (9-3, 2.37 ERA)

McDonald has won each of his last four outings and put out one of his best showings of the season last weekend against the Giants. He gave up just one run over seven innings while striking out 10 and walking none. McDonald now has three games with double-digit strikeouts already and has 100 punch-outs in 110 innings.

Mat Latos, Cincinnati Reds (7-2, 4.13 ERA)

Latos did everything he could to get a win against his former team, but his offense let him down. He allowed only four hits while throwing seven shutout innings in a 2-1 loss at San Diego. Latos has now yielded just two earned runs over his last three starts, which included two complete games, 28 strikeouts and only four walks.

Slumping

Jason Hammel, Baltimore Orioles (8-5, 3.47 ERA)

Hammel has lost each of his last three trips to the hill. Location has been one of his main issues lately. In his last 16 2/3 innings he has allowed 15 runs and issued nine walks. The three losses have bumped him down to eighth in the MLB money starter standings, but he’s still earned his supporters 6.83 units to date.

Ricky Romero, Toronto Blue Jays (8-4, 5.22 ERA)

Romero was much better in his last start, but still picked up his third straight loss. He gave up just two runs on four hits over six innings in a 2-0 loss to the White Sox. However, he did walk three more batters, upping his total to 58 walks in 110 1/3 innings. Before that outing Romero yielded 16 combined runs in two starts.

MLB betting: Scouting the toughest second-half schedules
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You could be sitting around a crystal ball with Aladdin and still have no idea what lies ahead in the second half of the MLB season.

Nobody predicted that the Baltimore Orioles would be hanging around in the AL East this deep in the season and everybody left the St. Louis Cardinals for dead before they put together an incredible run to win the title last season.

There’s a lot to factor in when you’re trying to determine which teams have the toughest schedules. For example, if you go strictly by the numbers and look at remaining opponents’ current winning percentage, we could just list the entire AL East.

It’s easily the most competitive division in baseball, but what’s the fun in that? These are the three teams that face the toughest road in the second half.

All stats compiled before Thursday’s action.

Baltimore Orioles: 44-37, +13.70 units

The winning percentage of Baltimore’s remaining opponents (.515) is actually a touch lower than that of the Tampa Bay Rays (.522), but we need to take a look at the O’s considering they rank second in MLB money standings. Plus, their strength of schedule in games played to date (.524) tops the bigs.

The Orioles sit in second place in the division at five games back of the Yanks and don’t catch any breaks for the rest of the season. They have 42 road games compared to 39 home dates and finish the year with 12 of their last 18 games on the highway. It’s going to be vtough, but it’s worth noting the O’s have earned almost 12 of their units to date on the road.

Oakland Athletics: 41-42, +7.48

The A’s are in third place in the AL West, 9.5 games back of the Texas Rangers. They’re going to have a tough time cutting into that deficit. Oakland’s remaining opponents’ winning percentage checks in at .520 and the club will face a major grind at the end of the season.

The A’s have a 10-game road trip on the schedule at the end of September with stops in Detroit, New York and Texas. They then go home for a three-game set against the Mariners before getting another kick in the face with the Rangers coming to town for another trio of contests to end the season. Not looking good for A’s supporters.

New York Mets: 42-38, 11.29 units

The Mets’ remaining opponents check in with a .498 winning percentage, which is the highest among any playoff contenders in the National League. They are in a dogfight in the NL East, trailing the division-leading Nationals by 4.5 games.

New York will need to keep it together on a 11-game western road swing that spans from July 26 to Aug. 5. The Mets then finish the season with three games in Atlanta followed by three more in Miami.

MLB betting: Scouting the easiest second-half schedules
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As the dog days of summer set in, it’s hard for MLB teams to put out their best effort every time they climb out of the dugout. That’s when a soft second-half schedule can really give teams a break.

Evaluating the schedules for the remainder of the season is hardly an exact science. Teams go through streaks and slumps, suffer major injures, and see big name players come and go around the trade deadline.

Still, some teams clearly face an easier road down the stretch than others. By the numbers, American League clubs generally face tougher schedules than that of the teams in the Senior Circuit because the AL is just better than the NL. It’s that simple.

With that in mind, here’s a look at three teams that face some of the easiest schedules in baseball as they try to secure their playoff spots.

Pittsburgh Pirates: 45-36, +17.32 units

The Pirates are running away with the MLB money standings, almost four units ahead of the second-place Baltimore Orioles, and it looks the Bucs could build on their booty. The Pirates’ remaining opponents own just a .459 winning percentage. They have 42 of their 81 remaining games at home, where they have pocketed better than 13 units with a 26-13 record.

The longest stretch they’re away from home is a 10-game set later this month, but they should be able to build some momentum early in that trip, visiting Houston for four games before playing three at Wrigley Field. They finish that swing with three more at Cincinnati and close out the season with six games at home.

San Francisco Giants: 45-37, +6.63 units

The Giants trail the Dodgers by just a half a game and will be looking to make some hay in the second half. Their remaining opponents own a .471 winning percentage.

San Francisco doesn’t spend more than seven straight games on the road for the rest of the year and the club has 10 straight home games before visiting the Padres and Dodgers to finish the season. The Giants will likely hold their own destiny in the pennant race with four series left against the Dodgers – two home, two away.

Chicago White Sox: 44-37, +5.73 units

The AL Central-leading White Sox have the easiest remaining schedule of any team in the American League. Chicago’s remaining opponents own a .497 winning percentage. The White Sox have been dominant on the road so far, going 23-16 as visitors to net more than 11 units.

They’ll need to keep that going and come out of the All-Star break hot with a stretch that sees them play 13 of 16 games on the road beginning July 13. If they ever get their game together at home, they’ll be really dangerous.

Red Sox at Rays: What bettors need to know
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Boston Red Sox at Tampa Bay Rays (-105, 8)

Neither the Tampa Bay Rays nor the Boston Red Sox are where they thought they would be coming out of the All-Star break. If the season were to end today, neither team would make the playoffs. The perennial powers have been plagued by problems with pitching (Boston) and defense (Tampa Bay), as well as several debilitating injuries. The Red Sox plan on having Will Middlebrooks, Jacoby Ellsbury and Clay Buchholz back this weekend.

Ellsbury, who finished second in the AL MVP vote last season but has been out since April 13 with a shoulder injury, could be the difference for Boston. Former Ray Carl Crawford is also expected back sometime soon. Tampa Bay, which sits in third place in the East, has less promising news on the injury front, as Evan Longoria is not expected back until August. The Gold Glove winner has been missed at the hot corner, where the Rays have committed 22 of their league-high 71 errors.

TV: 7:10 p.m. ET, NESN (Boston), SUN (Tampa Bay)

PITCHING MATCHUP: Red Sox LH Franklin Morales (1-2, 3.50 ERA) vs. Rays RH Jeremy Hellickson (4-5, 3.41 ERA)

Morales had three straight strong starts when he was moved into the rotation on June 17, posting a 2.00 ERA while striking out 24 batters in 18 innings. The converted reliever had his first big misstep last Saturday, when the New York Yankees tagged him for six runs on six hits - four homers - over 3 1/3 innings. Morales has made 12 relief appearances against Tampa Bay, posting a 1.64 ERA in 11 total innings.

Hellickson has not won since May 16 and is 0-3 over his last three turns. The 25 year old got little support in his last start, suffering a loss despite yielding only two runs in six innings at Detroit. Hellickson has made three starts against Boston already this season, going 1-1 with a 4.38 ERA. Red Sox slugger David Ortiz is 6-for-17 (.353) with a home run off the right-hander.

TRENDS:

* Under is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.
* Rays are 4-1 in Hellicksons last 5 starts vs. Red Sox.
* Under is 10-4 in the last 14 meetings in Tampa Bay.
* Red Sox are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Tampa Bay.

WALK-OFFS:

1. The Red Sox lead the season series, 5-4, and are outscoring the Rays 47-30.

2. Tampa Bay is 5-5 in its last 10 games. The Rays failed to score more than three runs in any of the five losses.

3. Buchholz, who has been on the DL since June 20 after being hospitalized with esophagitis, is scheduled to rejoin the rotation on Saturday.
