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


STREAKING

Hiroki Kuroda, New York Yankees (10-7, 3.34 ERA)

Kuroda’s last start was overshadowed by the acquisition of fellow Japanese star Ichiro Suzuki, but certainly not forgotten by bettors. The righty helped snap the Yankees’ season-long four-game losing skid, allowing one run on three hits over seven innings against the Mariners Monday. Hiroki hasn’t been tagged with a loss since June 19, a span of six starts.

Paul Maholm, Chicago Cubs (9-6, 3.88 ERA)

It’s not often we get to talk about a Chicago Cubs pitcher that’s on a hot streak, besides Ryan Dempster. Maholm hasn’t allowed more than one earned run in each of his last six starts and has lowered his ERA from 5.38 to 3.88 in just over a month. The lefty has also picked up wins in five of his last six outings.

SLUMPING

James McDonald, Pittsburgh Pirates (10-4, 3.15 ERA)

There’s no doubt that McDonald is the stud of the Pirates’ pitching staff, but he’s struggled in his last three starts - squandering 15 earned runs in 15 2-3 innings to the Cubs, Rockies and Brewers. He’ll have a chance to rebound against the lowly Astros Sunday.

Jonathan Sanchez, Colorado Rockies (0-1, 11.25 ERA)

A change of scenery hasn’t been enough to change Jonathan Sanchez’s fortunes. In his first start since being acquired by the Rockies, he surrendered five earned runs in just four innings against the Diamondbacks. It’s been a nightmare season for Sanchez and now he has the challenge of pitching at high altitude in his next outing against the high-powered Reds. His last win came against the Angels way back on April 9.

Sunday Night Baseball: Red Sox at Yankees
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Boston Red Sox at New York Yankees (-166)

The Yankees host the Red Sox for the finale of a three-game series on Sunday Night Baseball.

FELIX THE CAT

Felix Doubront gets the call for Boston. This will be his third look at the Yankees this season. Way back on April 21, the southpaw allowed just one run and four hits over six innings; Boston lost that game 15-9. His most recent attempt at beating the Yankees was on July 7. In that game, Doubront gave up four runs and four hits in just over six innings of work. Boston won that game 9-5. Doubront has been the beneficiary of a lot of run support as the Red Sox have scored six runs or more for him in six of his last nine outings. Doubront has been alternating good starts and bad starts over his last four outings.

KURODA THE KID

Hiroki Kuroda's first season in the American League has gone well. The righty is 10-7 with a 3.34 ERA and 103 strikeouts to just 34 walks. He has faced the Red Sox just once this season back on July 6. The righty allowed seven runs and 10 hits in 5 2-3 innings, but he got a no-decision in New York’s 10-8 win. Kuroda has been spectacular as of late allowing two runs or less in eight of his last 11 starts. At home, Kuroda has been lights out. He has given up just 15 earned runs in his last eight home starts. Kuroda has also shown great control walking more than three batters just once.

INJURY BUG

Both teams are not at full strength. The Yankees are without Mariano Rivera, Alex Rodriguez, Brett Gardner, Joba Chamberlain, and Andy Pettitte. Only Rodriguez and Pettitte are expected back this season. New York did acquire Ichiro Suzuki to fill in for Gardner. Boston is without David Ortiz, Daisuke Matsuzaka, Andrew Bailey, and John Lackey.

TRENDS

Red Sox are 5-1 Over in their last six Sunday games
Red Sox are 7-2 in Doubront's last nine road starts
Yankees are 42-20 in their last 62 Sunday games
Yankees are 10-3 Under in Kuroda’s last 13 starts

HITTERS TO WATCH

Cody Ross 5-for-22 vs. Kuroda
Adrian Gonzalez 8-for-26 vs. Kuroda
Curtis Granderson 2-for-8 vs. Doubront
Robinson Cano 0-for-7 vs. Doubront

Better late than never: Best late-inning MLB teams
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

“Go the distance”

The ghostly voice in 1989’s Field Of Dreams, one of the most beloved baseball movies, prompted Kevin Costner’s Ray Kinsella to do just that while taking in a ball game at Fenway Park – “Go the distance”.

Sure, the voice was hinting at a long-dead baseball player, but going the distance is quickly becoming a motto of these six teams, who have excelled when the going gets tough.

They’ve played their best ball in the late innings, either shutting opponents down or turning it up at the plate in the final three frames. And, as the schedule wears on and the summer temperatures take their toll, these clubs will have plenty left in the tank to come through for bettors with the game – and the money – on the line.

Best late-inning bats

Philadelphia Phillies (.267 BA 7+ inning, averaging 1.52 runs 7+ innings)

There’s a reason why the Phillies have 18 comeback wins this season, including two in their series sweep of the Milwaukee Brewers this week. Philadelphia is the best hitting team in baseball from the seventh inning on, sparked by late-game heroics from speedster Juan Pierre (.383 BA 7+ innings), Carlos Ruiz (.336) and Ty Wigginton (.303), who has recorded 23 of his 36 RBIs in the final three innings.

Cincinnati Reds (.262 BA 7+ innings, averaging 1.55 runs 7+ innings)

Even without slugger Joey Votto, the Big Red Machine continues to chug along. Cincinnati is the hottest team in baseball with seven straight wins and owns the second-best record in the National League at 58-40. Much of that success comes from an ability to break opponents’ backs late in the game. The Reds have bats like Scott Rolen (.339), Jay Bruce (.267) and Votto (.333) to step up in the crunch.

Kansas City Royals (.265 BA 7+ innings, averaging 1.32 runs 7+ innings)

The Texas Rangers are a better late-inning team than the Royals, but how often do you get to read something positive about Kansas City? Despite a 3-7 record in their last 10 outings, the Royals remain one of the better hitting teams from the seventh inning on. In fact, they’re one of the better hitting teams in baseball – period (.267 BA – fifth in the majors). However, K.C. has trouble cashing in those baserunners, hitting into 29 double-plays after the sixth.

Best late-inning arms

Oakland Athletics (2.62 ERA 7+ innings, 11 blown saves)

The A’s have left Back To The Future flaming tire treads as they've climbed the standings in July. Following Thursday’s loss to Toronto, Oakland is 16-3 this month with a 2.72 July ERA. That run has lot to do with the Athletics’ knack for slamming the door on foes, with the best late-inning ERA in baseball. The bullpen touts a collective 2.84 ERA, led by relievers Ryan Cook (1.70 ERA) and Grant Balfour (2.93 ERA).

Pittsburgh Pirates (2.80 ERA 7+ innings, six blown saves)

The Bucs' surprise success lies with their underrated staff. Pittsburgh is the biggest breadwinner of the season so far, raking in 21.29 units. The Pirates’ pitching has made bettors feel safe and secure in the late innings while also posting a solid 21-16 record in one-run games. The bullpen has the second-best collective ERA in the bigs (2.58 ERA) and has only blown six saves this season. Closer Joel Hanrahan could be MLB bettors’ MVP this season, with 30 saves and a 2.23 ERA.

Baltimore Orioles (2.91 ERA 7+ innings, 12 blown saves)

It’s no big surprise that the top three late-inning pitching teams are also among the top money teams in baseball. Baltimore jumped out to a hot start in the American League East and has since cooled a bit. But the O’s maintain their steady play in the championship rounds, with the help of a bullpen that ranks second in the AL (3.05 ERA). Baltimore is 19-6 in one-run games and has gone 10-2 in extra-inning affairs this summer.

Armadillo: Sunday's six-pack

-- I saw this on TV; John Daly hit a golf ball that was teed up in mouth of wacky analyst David Feherty. Whose idea was that?

-- There are roughly 5,700 parking meters in the city of Cincinnati.

-- There are more females than males on the US Olympic team.

-- Andre Ethier is 5 for his last 53 against lefthanded pitchers.

-- 31 of 82 Miami Heat games next year are on ESPN, TNT or NBAtv.

-- Cardinal pitcher Joe Kelly is a distant relative of the famous gangster Machine Gun Kelly. Just thought you'd like to know.


**********


Armadillo: Sunday's List of 13: Clearing out a cluttered mind.........

13) I know how difficult it is to train and make the Olympics, but I'd rather watch reruns of Undercover Boss than watch gymnastics. Or swimming.

Even the basketball, its only interesting if the American team comes close to getting beat. Would be more interesting if they showed more stuff live, but NBC is the king of tape delay, so they can orchestrate drama.

Spontaneous drama is what makes great TV. How do they not know this?

12) Friday afternoon, Cub pitcher Travis Wood became the first starting pitcher in baseball history to give up a home run in each of first five innings of a game. Thought that might have happened once or twice before, but I guess not many pitchers stay in the game after giving up a homer in each of the first four innings.

11) ESPN had a great stat Saturday night; since 2006, teams are 52-6 when they have a guy hit three HRs in a game; the Mets are 1-2 in those games. Ike Davis hit three taters Saturday, but somehow Mets only scored three runs in the whole game. Thats hard to do.

10) Broadcasting baseball is so important to FOX, they don't have a game on the next two Saturdays; must be big NASCAR races on. Thats good for those of us who have the Extra Innings package; can see all the Saturday games now, at least for a couple weeks.

9) Speaking of FOX, wonder what minion has to inform the bosses that the Red Sox suck this year and they have to stop showing their games?

8) Carl Crawford is 22-69 (.319) in his career against CC Sabathia, but sat the bench Saturday; he played Friday, despite being 2-14 vs Phil Hughes. Crawford makes $20M a year; how does he sit against anyone?

Bobby Valentine made up some crap about the doctors having a rule about Crawford not playing five days in a row, but he played six days in a row last week. Crawford has to regret signing with them, except on payday.

7) Someone at Fenway Park reported the Wally (mascot) costume stolen this weekend; turns out an employee had borrowed it and not told anyone. Been that kind of a year in Beantown.

6) Going into Saturday's games, Philliy's Hunter Pence had come to bat with 302 men on base, most in the big leagues. He's knocked in 13.9% of them. Next is Matt Holliday (300, 15.7%), then Josh Willingham (298, 15.8%) and Robinson Cano (293, 11.6%).

5) A's faced five lefty starting pitchers in a row Sunday-Friday; was good to see Smith/Moss back in the lineup for Saturday's win. Make sure you see highlights for the catch Cespedes made in left-center Saturday night. He is a great player, so fun to watch.

4) White Sox made their move to bolster their pitching late Saturday night, acquiring lefty Francisco Liriano from the Twins. Angels traded for Zach Greinke. My A's? They traded for Milwaukee's third-string catcher.

3) Kentucky football coach Joker Phillips is on thin ice; season ticket sales are down 27% from last year, 37% from 2009. Wildcats had it good when Rich Brooks was their coach; they won just enough to distract people from preseason basketball practice for three hours on a Saturday.

2) Exhibit A why the DH should be eliminated: David Ortiz strained his Achilles jogging the bases after his teammate hit a home run. I'm 52-- if I was standing on first base and someone hit a homer, I could jog around the bases without getting hurt.

1) Aubrey Huff just missed 33 games; he got hurt hopping over the dugout fence to celebrate Matt Cain's perfect game. I kid you not.
