Diamondbacks Wrap Series At Pittsburgh Pirates

Will Wandy Rodriguez win over Pittsburgh Pirates fans when he makes his first home start since being picked up in a July trade? More importantly, can he win money for bettors backing the Bucs who are $1.20 favorites in their series finale against the Arizona Diamondbacks?

The late matinee affair at PNC Park is slated for a 4:05 p.m. (ET) first pitch from Rodriguez. He faces fellow lefty Joe Saunders of Arizona with an 8-run total.

Arizona has climbed back into the National League playoff picture thanks to a 17-11 push that began just before the all-star break. The Diamondbacks stopped a 3-game slide with a 10-4 victory in the second game of this series on Tuesday, getting a pair of late homers from newly-acquired third baseman Chris Johnson to rally from a 4-3 deficit and grab the dubya as slight +105 underdogs. The triumph left the Snakes four games out of the NL West in third place, and 6.5-games behind the Pirates for the second NL wild-card slot.

Even with that loss, the Pirates still own the best home record in the majors (34-17), and the fourth-best overall mark in the NL which puts them 3.5-games back of the Cincinnati Reds in the Central. Pittsburgh had won 13 of 20 entering Wednesday's third game of the set which was still pending. Arizona was priced at -140 for the tilt with an 8-run total. Ian Kennedy was scheduled to pitch for the D-Backs opposite Kevin Correia.

Saunders will be taking the mound for the 19th time this campaign and has produced nice numbers over his last nine outings with a 3.35 ERA and 43:16 strikeout-to-walk ratio. Despite his efforts, Arizona managed to win just two of those nine assignments thanks to a lack of run support. The Diamondbacks were blanked in three of the losses and managed to score but a single run in three others.

The former star at Virginia Tech beat the Bucs in Phoenix back in April, tossing seven innings while scattering six hits and allowing just one run.

Rodriguez has been a bit lucky as well as unlucky in his first two starts since coming from Houston in a late-July swap. Both outings were on the road, and his first start for the Pirates came against his former Astros teammates. The southpaw was a bit wild but still kept Pittsburgh in the game, and the Bucs eventually rallied for a 4-3 triumph. He surrendered just three runs in Cincinnati the last time out, but the Pirates couldn't muster any offense against Mat Latos and the Reds who scored a 3-0 whitewashing.

He last faced the Diamondbacks almost exactly one year ago in Arizona, posting zeroes for six innings and allowing just two hits while striking out five. Rodriguez is 3-5 in eight lifetime starts vs. the Snakes with a 5.40 ERA.

Pittsburgh had a slim 3-2 advantage over the Diamondbacks this season with Wednesday's contest still unsettled. The 'under' also held a 3-2 edge in 2012 clashes. The Pirates had won six of the last eight played at PNC Park.

Alfonso Marquez should complete the umpire crew's rotation in this 4-game series on Thursday. Totals have run 13-8-1 'under' in his previous 22 plate assignments, with the 'over' 3-1 the last four.

A warm, muggy day is in the forecast for Iron City where afternoon highs will reach the mid-80s. The chance of rain increases as the afternoon wears on.

Matt Moore And Rays Host Toronto Blue Jays

The American League East action gets underway early on Thursday with an afternoon tilt between the Toronto Blue Jays and Tampa Bay Rays.

First pitch from Tropicana Field will be at 1:10 p.m. (ET). Don Best is sending out Tampa as a solid $2.00 home favorite with a total of seven runs in the finale of a 3-game series.

Matt Moore (8-7, 3.84 ERA) will be on the hill for the Rays and is a big reason for their favorite status. He’s looking like the guy from last year who got called up at the end of the season and pitched great through the playoffs.

The 23-year-old lefty has over a 16-inning scoreless streak going and his home ERA for the season (3.36) is far lower than away (4.63). He is 3-1 in four starts since the All-Star break with a paltry 1.46 ERA.

Henderson Alvarez (7-8, 4.47 ERA) is the opposing pitcher and is 2-1 in his last three starts. The ‘under’ has been a solid play for him lately at 3-1 in the last four. Don Best MLB analyst Kenny White points to poor run support as one reason, nine total runs scored in three of those contests.

White also likes the ‘stuff’ of the 22-year-old right-hander with a 93 mph fastball, curve and slider. Alvarez’ most recent start against the Rays this year came in mid-May, surrendering just two earned runs over 6 2/3 innings in a 4-3 loss. He was somewhat lucky in allowing 10 hits and will need to lower that number on Thursday.

Looking at the big picture in the AL East, the Rays are 57-52 pending Wednesday night’s result. They took the first game of the series on Tuesday by a score of 4-1. Tampa is just six games back of the suddenly-struggling Yankees and right in the thick of the wild-card.

Getting Evan Longoria back from the disabled list should make a huge difference for Tampa and he was 1-for-3 with an RBI in his first game back on Tuesday. White loves the managing of Joe Maddon who has the coaching pedigree and experience to make another strong run.

Toronto (53-56) is in the division basement, even below the underachieving Red Sox, and hasn’t hit or pitched particularly well since the break.

Red Sox-Indians begin 4-game set Thursday

BOSTON RED SOX (55-57)

at CLEVELAND INDIANS (51-60)


First pitch: Thursday, 7:05 p.m. EDT
Line: Boston -130, Cleveland +120, Total: 9

Two badly struggling franchises, the Red Sox and Indians, will meet Thursday in Cleveland for the opener of a four-game series.

The Red Sox are just 2-6 in August, including two straight losses to bring their record to two games below .500. And prior to beating the Twins Wednesday night, the Indians had lost 11 games in a row (allowing 10+ runs in five of those defeats), which brought them well below the even mark too. Neither of these teams should get much help from their starting pitcher Thursday to right their ships, with Ubaldo Jimenez and Felix Doubront on the hill. Boston’s left-hander Doubront has a 4.56 ERA and 1.45 WHIP on the season, but has been shelled lately with a 6.61 ERA and 1.96 WHIP in his past three starts, in which he has walked four people per outing. Jimenez is no better though. He has a 5.29 ERA and 1.61 WHIP in 2012, with 76 walks (most in majors) in 127.2 innings. He has not won since July 7, going 0-4 with an 8.42 ERA and 2.03 WHIP in five starts. The difference in this game could be the Indians’ struggles against lefties. Doubront beat them earlier this season allowing just one run in six innings, contributing to Cleveland’s major-league worst 11-24 record (.314) versus southpaws. Play on BOSTON as the road favorite here.

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

Play On - Any team (BOSTON) - average offensive team (4.7 to 5.2 runs/game) against an average starter (ERA=4.70 to 5.70)-AL, with an on base percentage of .310 or worse over their last 20 games. (127-68 since 1997.) (65.1%, +60.4 units. Rating = 3*).

That outing earlier this year is Doubront’s only career start versus the Indians, but he has enjoyed pitching on the road this season, carting a 3.57 ERA with 60 K’s in 58 innings. More importantly, he has led the Red Sox to eight wins in his 10 away starts. And even though he does not make it deep into games, averaging 5.6 innings per start, the Boston bullpen has helped with Doubront’s great road winning percentage. Sox relievers carry a stellar 3.39 ERA in 2012, a figure that drops to 2.64 on the road. Although All-Star DH David Ortiz could come back later this weekend, the Red Sox lineup is starting to surge with 27 runs and 48 hits in the past four games.

Whereas Doubront had success pitching against the Indians this year, Jimenez has been owned by the Red Sox in his career. In his 2012 outing he yielded nine hits and seven earned runs in 4.1 innings, walking five and striking out four. Overall, including a start in the 2007 World Series, he is 0-2 versus Boston with a 9.20 ERA and 2.18 WHIP in three career starts. Supported by a lineup that averages just 3.8 runs per game with a .232 batting average against lefty starters is not encouraging either. The Cleveland bullpen is also shaky, carrying a 4.09 ERA on the season, which marks the worst relief ERA in the American League.

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

Streaking

Madison Bumgarner, San Francisco Giants (12-6, 3.03 ERA)

The Giants lefty has helped keep the club afloat during Tim Lincecum’s sub-par season and while he’s recorded just one win in his last three starts, Bumgarner has been sublime in that span. He’s allowed just five earned runs in his last 19 innings and has totaled 25 strikeouts in that stretch.

Jordan Zimmermann, Washington Nationals (8-6, 2.45 ERA)

The Nationals are fighting for the top spot in the bigs, thanks in part to the efforts of Zimmermann. The right-hander is undefeated in his previous eight starts, going 5-0 and has not allowed more than one run in that span before surrendering four earned runs in a no-decision versus Miami in his most recent outings.


Slumping

Ubaldo Jimenez, Cleveland Indians (8-11, 5.29 ERA)

It’s incredible to see how far Jimenez has fallen. The righty is winless in his last five starts with a 0-4 record in that span. He was knocked around for six earned runs on seven hits over 5 1-3 innings versus the Tigers in his most recent appearance.

Chris Volstad, Chicago Cubs (0-8, 7.22 ERA)

Volstad hasn’t won a game in 21 starts and has swallowed five straight “L’s” spread out over the course of the season. The Cubs did like what they saw from the righty in his most recent defeat, throwing seven solid innings in which he allowed just two earned runs on six hits, including one home run.
