Pirates Hit Road To Wrestle Cincinnati Reds

What once appeared to be a dream season has turned a bit nightmarish for Clint Hurdle and the Pittsburgh Pirates. If the Bucs are going to get back into serious playoff contention in the National League, they'll have to make hay this week in Cincinnati for a 3-game series with the division-leading Reds.

Tuesday's second game of the set gets underway at 7:10 p.m. (ET) when Mike Leake is the scheduled starter for Cincinnati. The Reds opened on a -145 line for the game against Pittsburgh's Kevin Correia, and oddsmakers started the contest with an 8½-run total.

This series begins a 7-game road trip for the Pirates who will be in Chicago for a 4-game, wrap-around series with the Cubs this weekend. Pittsburgh had won just two of its last nine games entering Monday's series opener, and gone 14-25 since Aug. 28 when the Pirates were a season-best 16 games above .500 (58-42).

Game 1 of the series was still pending with the Reds solid $1.65 favorites behind Mat Latos who was squaring off against Wandy Rodriguez for the fourth time this season, two of those matchups when Rodriguez was still pitching for the Houston Astros.

Speaking of the Astros, they play a role for both teams in this preview. Correia faced Houston his last time out and tossed six solid innings while allowing just a run on four hits of a 6-3 Pittsburgh win to cash a -190 line for Bucs backers. That assignment followed a couple of long relief outings for the right-hander, and Tuesday will be his third start vs. Cincinnati this season. The Pirates split the first two, one each at PNC Park and Great American Ball Park, with Correia combining for 12 innings and surrendering eight earned runs.

The former Cal Poly star has endured his share of trouble with several hitters in the Reds order over the years; the group has batted a collective .295 against Correia while popping 10 long balls.

Cincinnati is enjoying a comfortable 8.5-game lead atop the NL Central, the largest advantage of any division leader, but has been slowed so far in September with a 3-5 record. The Reds started this homestand by losing 3-game sets to the Phillies and Astros, with Houston's series triumph its first road series win since early June at the White Sox. The Astros were also able to win their two games by knocking down Cincinnati's top two hurlers, closer Aroldis Chapman and Cy Young candidate Johnny Cueto.

Leake was pounded in one of the setbacks to Philadelphia who scored six times before chasing the former Arizona State star in the third inning. The defeat stopped a short 2-game winning streak for Leake who has helped the Reds to a 7-4 record in his 11 outings since the all-star break.

He'll be seeing the Pirates for a fourth time this season on Tuesday, winning one, losing another and taking a no-decision in the third that ultimately went into the loss column for the Reds.

Cincinnati hasn't had much of a home-field advantage over Pittsburgh since Great American Ball Park opened in 2003. The Reds are 41-40 in that span, and the clubs have split the first six games played on this diamond in 2012. The 'over' swept a 3-game series in Cincinnati back in June while an early-August set cashed one 'under' ticket along with a pair of 'pushes.'

The Reds have a couple of injury concerns with 3B Scott Rolen and SS Zack Cozart both questionable for Monday's game due to back issues. Pittsburgh 2B Neil Walker is also questionable for Game 1 with a back injury. Bettors will want to keep an eye on the Don Best Pro Odds for updates as the series progresses.

Hot & Not

September 10, 2012

Only three-plus weeks remain in the 2012 regular season with teams continuing to make that one final push that will guarantee themselves a place in the postseason. Here's a look at what some of the best and worst teams did over the course of the last week against the closing lines.
Money-Makers

Los Angeles Angels (6-0, $616): If ever a team made a statement this past week, it was manager Mike Scioscia's Halos who swept respective series against Wild Card hopefuls Oakland and Detroit. When the Angels were running hot earlier this season, they destroyed everything in their way. That looks to once be happening again with Los Angeles registering series wins in five of their last six opportunities.

On The Docket: Now 2 1/2-games in back of the A's for the overall Wild Card lead, LA can leap frog everyone in front of them if they sweep its four-game series with Oakland that starts Monday and follow it up with a series win in Kansas City; LA's won 23 of 41 vs. the AL West (-$260).

Philadelphia Phillies (5-1, $478): It's nearly impossible to believe, but the Phillies still have a mathematical shot at qualifying for the second season. Though manager Charlie Manuel's squad sits a hefty 11 1/2-games in back of the Wild Card leading Atlanta Braves, they only trail the play-in holding St. Louis Cardinals by six-games heading into Monday night's series opener with the Marlins. That in and of itself is amazing considering this team was at one point the laughing stock of the NL East.

On The Docket: If Philadelphia somehow manages to inch closer to the Wild Card leaders, it will be over this next stretch of games with them matched up against Miami, Houston, and the Mets in their next three series. Ryan Howard and his mates check in 31-22 ($410) against losing ball clubs this season; 13-6 L/19 ($600).

Atlanta Braves (6-1, $428 ): Manager Fredi Gonzalez's squad had their hearts ripped out in the final game of their 2011 season a year ago to miss out on all the postseason festivities. With that memory fresh in their minds, the Braves have made it a point not to suffer that same kind of letdown in successive seasons. Though the offense has been held in check of late, the pitching staff has picked up the slack limiting the opposition to an average of just 1.7 runs per game through the L/7 games.

On The Docket: The Braves will close out their six-game road trip in Milwaukee before returning home to battle the NL East leading Washington Nationals through the weekend. Atlanta's 36-20 versus sub .500 teams to date, but has struggled vs. +.500 teams winning on 40 of 85 occasions.

Honorable Mentions: San Diego Padres (4-2, $325), Miami Marlins (4-3, $294), Toronto Blue Jays (4-2, $273), Tampa Bay Rays (4-2, $186), Milwaukee Brewers (4-3, $107)

Money-Burners

Detroit Tigers (1-5, -$631): To be perfectly honest, I'm getting sick and tired of alternating between money-makers and money-burners with this poor excuse of what was expected to be a division winner. The Tigers are so up and down that it's already had to have driven its fans completely bonkers. Thankfully the NFL season has arrived, but if Sunday's last second win by the Lions over the Rams is a sign of things to come, the upcoming pigskin campaign might be as nerve-racking as the baseball season has been.

On The Docket: This week, the Tigers trail the White Sox by two-games in the AL Central standings. However, if we go by the season long "MO", Verlander and his mates will either hold a one-game lead or be tied next Monday. That notion could come to fruition with the Tigers and Palehose squaring off for the last four times of the year starting Monday night at "The Cell."

Cincinnati Reds (2-4, -$610): Owners of a healthy 8 1/2-game lead in the NL Central, we're going to look past the Reds bankroll bursting week since every team is allowed to have a couple of blunders over the course of a 162 game regular season. The Reds have been nothing short of consistent all season long, though we would feel better about them if the offense started scoring some runs again (2.5 RPG L/7).

On The Docket: If the offense fails to get much done this upcoming week against the Pirates and Marlins pitching staff, there might be some cause for concern with the second season rapidly approaching.

Pittsburgh Pirates (2-4, -$499): It's official! The Buccos ship has officially run out of steam. Once a major player in the NL Central and a surefire Wild Card entrant, manager Clint Hurdle's outfit now sits 11-games out in the division and is in jeopardy of getting leapfrogged by the Brew Crew in the standings. Over the last two seasons, Pittsburgh has shown MLB bettors that it has enough to be a force for the first four months, but is nothing but fade city after; unfortunately!

On The Docket: The Pirates only hope for the postseason would be to qualify as a Wild Card. Catching Atlanta looks to be extremely far-fetched, but they only trail the Cardinals by 3 1/2-games and only have the Dodgers to pass as well. If they could win their next series in Cincinnati and then avenge the series sweep they were just dished out by the Cubs, some new life could be pumped into the Pirates postseason dreams; Andrew McCutchen and company have won 34 of 64 versus NL Central opposition ($340).

Dishonorable Mentions: Boston Red Sox (1-5, -$516), Colorado Rockies (1-6, -$436), New York Mets (1-5, -$391), Los Angeles Dodgers (2-4, -$320), Seattle Mariners (2-4, -$241)

Tigers-White Sox continue series Tuesday

DETROIT TIGERS (73-67)

at CHICAGO WHITE SOX (76-64)


First pitch: Tuesday, 8:10 p.m. EDT
Line: Chicago -110, Detroit +100, Total: 8

After losing game one of the crucial four-game series against Chicago Monday night 6-1, the Tigers will look gain ground in the AL Central sitting three games behind the division-leading White Sox.

The Tigers enter this game the losers of four in a row, a span in which their offense has not given them a chance, averaging just 1.5 runs per game in that span. They will look to reverse those fortunes against Jake Peavy, who Detroit has faced twice since the All-Star Break and beat him in both games, saddling Peavy with a 6.92 ERA. Peavy has faced the Tigers a remarkable five times in 2012 and is just 1-2 with a 5.79 ERA in those starts. Overall, he is 10-10 with a 3.22 ERA this year. In turn, Doug Fister will look to shut down the White Sox, with a 3.54 ERA and 1.22 WHIP this year, earning an 8-8 record. He faced Peavy on Aug. 31, a game in which the Tigers won 7-4. While Fister is 0-2 (team 1-4) in five career starts against Chicago, he has regularly pitched well with a 3.52 ERA. Look for him to lead DETROIT to victory in this one.

This rare FoxSheets five-star trend favors the UNDER:

DOUG FISTER is 19-2 UNDER (+16.8 Units) after giving up 1 or less earned runs last outing over the last 2 seasons. (Team's Record). The average score was FISTER 3.1, OPPONENT 2.6 - (Rating = 5*).

Fister’s success against the White Sox comes from his ability to limit hits from some of the marquee members in the Chicago lineup. Paul Konerko, Kevin Youkilis and A.J. Pierzynski are a combined 6-for-41 in their career against Fister. And without Adam Dunn (oblique) in the lineup, he should be in great shape. Averaging 6.2 innings per start on the season, Fister has shown an ability to go even deeper into games on the road, where he averages 6.5 innings per start with a 3.32 ERA and 1.20 WHIP. That could help the Tigers win when they have a mediocre 4.25 bullpen ERA on the road.

Peavy’s greatest strength is his ability to go deep into games, averaging 6.9 innings per start this year, which starts with his ability to limit base runners and his 1.11 WHIP. And he has dominated at home this year with a 6-3 record, 3.05 ERA and 1.02 WHIP. But with his struggles as of late—he hasn’t beaten any team since the All Star Break except the lowly Twins—he is a sketchy play. And while the White Sox are 4-2 against the Tigers at home this year, the Tigers are 10-5 overall and 33-18 over the last three years.

Tuesday's betting tips: Mets trying to wake up bats

Weather watch

Thunderstorms are in the forecast for Coors Field, where the Rockies host the Giants Tuesday. Winds will reach speeds of up to 11 mph, blowing NNW towards the first base line, and there is a 40 percent chance of rain later in the evening.

Betting news and notes

-- Milwaukee OF Corey Hart is day-to-day while suffering through plantar fascia. The Brewers are +106 underdogs hosting the Braves Tuesday.

-- The Buffalo Bills, already reeling from the loss of RB Fred Jackson for the next few weeks, will also be without WR David Nelson. He’s lost for the season after suffering a torn ligament in his right knee. Buffalo is a 3.5-point home favorite against Kansas City in Week 2.

-- Wisconsin is desperate to improve its running game after an upset loss to Oregon State in Week 2. The Badgers fired offensive line coach Mike Markuson this week after Heisman hopeful Montee Ball averaged under four yards per carry through the first two games of the season. Wisconsin is -14 hosting Utah State Saturday.

-- The Phillies have won 19 of their last 27 games at Citizens Bank Park. Philadelphia is a -205 home fave with Roy Halladay on the mound Tuesday.

Armadillo: Tuesday's six-pack

-- Wisconsin fired its offensive line coach, after two games? Wow.

-- Sickens me to report that before Sunday, Detroit Lions had lost their last 51 games with a minus-3 or worse turnover ratio. Last win? 1972.

-- Nevada sportsbooks made $7.2M from booking baseball in July, the best baseball month they've had in the last eight years.

-- Cards' 1B Lance Berkman had knee surgery, is out for the season.

-- Five NFL teams scored 40+ points this week, most ever for a Week 1.

-- Our thoughts and prayers are with Jerry (King) Lawler, who collapsed during the WWE telecast and was taken to a Montreal hospital, after he had CPR performed on him backstage at the Bell Centre.


Armadillo: Tuesday's List of 13: Nobody asked me, but.......

13) Couple things that could push the NFL/referees’ standoff towards a conclusion: Firstly, the officials take in an average of $5,500 a week.

It’s a safe assumption that most of the refs are married, and the wives are going to start bitching about both the decrease in income, and having hubby home all weekend.

12) Secondly, other than the Jaguar-Viking game, which went OT, average length of Sunday’s games was 3:14, which is longer than what the TV gurus would like. TV gurus carry a lot of weight with NFL folks.

11) Speaking of which, Jerry Jones still hasn’t given up on the idea of an 18-game regular season; eventually, that’s going to be one way to get a much bigger TV contract, and making money is Jerry’s thing. I’d like it, but not sure the Players’ Union would go for it.

10) Jones’ Cowboys are practicing with piped-in crowd noise this week, to get ready for game Sunday in noisy Seattle.

9) There were 25 defensive pass interferences in Week 1, as much as in Week 1 of 2010/2011 combined; only 2 of 13 replay challenges resulted in the call being changed.

8) Underdogs dominated AFC West play LY, with dogs covering 11 of the 12 divisional games. Home favorites were an unsightly 0-10 against the spread in divisional games.

7) So much for training camp: Maurice Jones-Drew was in on 49 of 81 Jacksonville plays Sunday. Adrian Peterson played on 32 of Minnesota’s 59 snaps. Neither guy ran the ball in exhibition games this summer.

6) The “Fox 40” pea-less whistle, which almost all referees use now, makes a noise of 115 decibels; the old whistle, the one with the pea in it? That made a sound of 80 decibels.

5) Gary Bettman makes $8M a year as NHL Commissioner? Think he could name every NHL team and what division they’re in?

4) Phoenix Suns are hiring a new gorilla mascot for next season; the ideal candidate has a college degree and two years of previous mascot experience. Have to be a lot of people fitting that description hanging around the desert, looking for work.

3) Oakland A’s have nine home games left, three big series with Orioles-Texas-Seattle; they couldn’t sell any tickets Monday, because it’s the day of a Raider home game. Terrific.

2) How is Nike CEO Phil Knight in the Basketball Hall of Fame and Jerry Tarkanian isn’t? How does this make any sense? What would make sense are separate Halls of Fame for the NBA and college hoop.

1) Hawk Harrelson, arguably one of baseball's worst announcers (White Sox TV) is one of 41 finalists for the Ford Frick award, which is induction into Baseball’s Hall of Fame.

If he were to win, it’s a sure sign the Mayans were right and the apocalypse will be happening soon. Very soon.

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

STREAKING

R.A. Dickey, New York Mets (18-4, 2.64)

Dickey allowed two runs over 6 2/3 innings to pick up his 18th victory in the Mets' 6-2 win over the Cardinals on Wednesday. The knuckleballer is only two wins shy of becoming the team’s first 20-game winner since Frank Viola. The righty has picked up wins in each of his last three starts and has five more outings to reach the elusive mark. He has a tough home start against Washington next.

Roy Halladay, Philadelphia Phillies (9-7, 3.87)

Halladay gave up one earned run in 7 1/3 innings as the Phillies downed the Reds on Wednesday. The Doctor has earned victories in three of his last four starts and draws the Marlins in his next outing.


SLUMPING

Madison Bumgarner, San Francisco Giants (14-10, 3.15)

Bumgarner surrendered four earned runs over seven innings of work in a loss to the Diamondbacks on Wednesday. The lefty dropped his third straight
decision and has allowed four runs in each of his last three nods. He takes the bump at hitter-friendly Coors Field next.

Adam Wainwright, St. Louis Cardinals (13-12, 4.04)

Wainwright gave up five earned runs and took the loss against the Mets in his last start. The right-hander has been tabbed with back-to-back losses, allowing 11 earned runs in his last 7 2/3 innings pitched. He hopes for a reversal of fortune against the Padres on Tuesday.
