Armadillo's Write-Up

Wednesday, October 10

Jackson was with Cardinals LY; he was 1-1, 5.60 in four postseason starts in Cards' World Series run. He allowed one (unearned) run vs Cards Aug 30 in a 8-1 win, then gave up nine runs (eight earned) in 12-2 loss at St Louis Sept 28, which sums up his career. He has allowed 12 runs in 22 career postseason IP. Washington is 5-4 vs Cardinals this year, with home side 6-3 in those games; seven of the nine games went over total. Carpenter is 0-2, 3.71 in three starts this season, allowing only 19 baserunners in 17 IP. He is 9-2, 3.05 in his 15 career postseason starts.

Cueto is out until World Series, if Reds get that far; Leake takes his place here- he is 1-0, 3.32 in his last three starts, and beat Giants 5-1 with CG effort back on June 29. Zito is 5-0, 2.35 in his last five starts; he allowed one run in six IP in both his '12 starts vs Cincy, but didn't win either one. Zito is 4-3, 3.25 in his seven postseason starts. Reds/Giants are both 12-7 in their last 19 games; Reds are 6-4 against SF this year after winning twice out west. Under is 10-2 in Cincinnati's last 11 home games, seven of last ten Giant road games also stayed under. Ball doesn't carry as well in this park in cooler weather.

MGonzalez is 3-0, 2.10 in his last four starts, 2-0, 2.63 in two starts against Bronx this season, both in this park. Kuroda is 2-0, 2.92 in his last two starts, 1-1, 2.93 in two starts vs Baltimore this year. Road team is 13-7 in Bronx-O's games this season; Orioles are 6-3 at this site. Over is 5-1-1 in last seven series games. Keep in mind Baltimore is 30-9 in one-run games and has won sixteen extra-inning games in a row. They're a confident team. Pressure is on Bronx.

Detroit is 6-4 vs Oakland this year, won 10 of last 13 games overall, but lost 12 of last 20 road games. Oakland won seven in row and nine of last ten home tilts, Scherzer is 5-1, 1.50 in his last nine starts but has been battling physical problems, most recently a bum ankle- he allowed three runs in 7.1 IP vs A's this year. Griffin is 1-1, 7.79 in his last four starts; he allowed five runs in 4.2 IP at Detroit Sept 18. Home side won all three series games; visitors are 7-2 in other nine playoff games.

ALDS betting preview: Orioles at Yankees
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Baltimore Orioles at New York Yankees (-170, 8.5)

Series tied 1-1

After earning a split of the first two games in Baltimore, the New York Yankees attempt to cash in on their home-field advantage when they host Game Three of their American League Division Series against the Orioles on Wednesday.

New York broke open a tight series opener in the ninth inning Sunday but dropped a 3-2 nail-biter at Camden Yards on Monday as Baltimore closer Jim Johnson bounced back from a disastrous outing to set down the Yankees in order and notch his first career postseason save.

Game 2 followed the same pattern as the opener, with New York scoring a run in the first inning and Baltimore plating two in the third. The difference may have been the fourth inning as the Orioles allowed the tying run to score on Monday but escaped a bases-loaded, one-out jam Tuesday to preserve their lead. Wei-Yin Chen notched the win in his postseason debut while 40-year-old Andy Pettitte took the loss, failing to add to his all-time playoff victory total of 19.

The Orioles improved to 76-0 when leading after seven innings and 30-9 in one-run games this year. They posted a 6-3 record at Yankee Stadium during the regular season.

TV: 7:30 p.m. ET, TBS

WEATHER: The forecast in the Bronx is calling for a 20 percent chance of showers earlier in the evening, eventually clear off with temperatures falling into the high 50s. Winds are expected to blow WSW at 13 mph.

PITCHING MATCHUP: Orioles RH Miguel Gonzalez (9-4, 3.25 ERA) vs. Yankees RH Hiroki Kuroda (16-11, 3.32)

Gonzalez won his final three starts of the regular season and allowed two runs or less in five of his last six outings. The 28-year-old Mexican was impressive on the road in his first major league campaign, going 6-2 with a 2.74 ERA in 11 games - including two relief appearances. Gonzalez was 2-0 against the Yankees, with both victories coming in New York. He yielded four runs while striking out eight over 6 2/3 innings July 30 and fanned nine in seven scoreless frames Aug. 31.

Kuroda also finished the regular season strong, winning four of his final five decisions. The 37-year-old native of Japan had the majority of his success this year at home, where he went 11-6 with a 2.72 ERA in 19 outings. Kuroda split his two starts against the Orioles, both of which were at Yankee Stadium. He allowed one run over seven innings in a win April 30 while yielding four runs over 8 1/3 frames in a loss to Gonzalez on Aug. 31.

TRENDS:

* Over is 6-1 in the last seven meetings.
* Under is 7-3-1 in the last 11 meetings in New York.
* Orioles are 29-59 in the last 88 meetings in New York.
* Orioles are 25-56 in the last 81 meetings.

UMP TRENDS - Brian Gorman:

* Over is 5-2 in Gormans last seven games behind home plate vs. New York.
* Orioles are 0-4 in their last four Wednesday games with Gorman behind home plate.

WALK-OFFS:

1. Yankees LF Ichiro Suzuki went 1-for-5 on Monday to extend his hitting streak at Camden Yards to 21 games.

2. New York (245) and Baltimore (214) were the top two teams in the major leagues in home runs during the regular season, but have combined for one over the first two games of the series.

3. Yankees RF Nick Swisher has one hit in his last 33 postseason at-bats with runners in scoring position.

ALDS betting preview: Tigers at Athletics
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Detroit Tigers at Oakland Athletics (-108, 7)

Detroit leads series 2-1

The Oakland Athletics were a little upset about the format of the best-of-five American League Division Series after dropping the first two games on the road. Now that they have a win in their pocket, the Athletics are in position to even the series and go for the win at the O.co Coliseum.

Oakland has won seven straight at home dating back to the regular season and will try to make it eight behind A.J. Griffin on Wednesday night. The A’s used a familiar formula in Game 3, getting strong pitching and defense to go along with timely hitting. Coco Crisp, whose error led to the go-ahead runs in the Game 2 setback, scored a run and robbed a homer from Prince Fielder on Monday.

The first four hitters in the Detroit lineup combined to go 1-for-15 with six strikeouts in Oakland’s spacious ballpark but the Tigers have the advantage of the top two strikeout pitchers in baseball lined up for the next two games in Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander.

TV: 9:37 p.m. ET, TBS

WEATHER: The forecast calls for cloudy skies and temperatures in the low 60s. Winds are expected to blow west at 6 mph.

PITCHING MATCHUP: Tigers RH Max Scherzer (16-7, 3.74 ERA) vs. Athletics RH A.J. Griffin (7-1, 3.06)

Scherzer missed a start with a shoulder strain but came back to pitch the regular season finale, allowing three hits in four scoreless innings. The right-hander finished behind only Verlander with 231 strikeouts and has not surrendered more than three runs in a start since Aug. 5. Scherzer suffered the shoulder injury against Oakland on Sept. 18 and was lifter after allowing one run in two innings. He beat the A’s in Oakland on May 10, striking out nine and yielding two runs in 6 1/3 frames.

Griffin struggled down the stretch and was knocked out of the regular season finale after just 2 2/3 innings. The 24-year-old rookie did not complete six innings in any of his last four starts and suffered his lone loss against Detroit on Sept. 18. Griffin was lit up for five runs on eight hits in 4 2/3 innings in that turn, surrendering home runs to Fielder, Miguel Cabrera and Jhonny Peralta. Griffin has yet to lose at home, going 3-0 with a 3.21 ERA in eight starts.

TRENDS:

* Over is 3-0-1 in Scherzers last four starts vs. Athletics.
* Tigers are 5-2 in the last seven meetings.
* Under is 14-6-1 in the last 21 meetings in Oakland.

UMP TRENDS - Eric Cooper:

* Over is 4-0 in Coopers last four games behind home plate vs. Oakland.
* Over is 4-0 in Coopers last four Wednesday games behind home plate vs. Detroit.
* Tigers are 3-7 in their last 10 games with Cooper behind home plate.
* Athletics are 5-18 in their last 23 games with Cooper behind home plate.

WALK-OFFS:

1. Fielder was robbed three times in Game 3 and is batting just .083 (1-for-12) in the series.

2. Oakland relievers Ryan Cook, Grant Balfour and Sean Doolittle, who combined to allow four runs (two earned) with two blown saves and a loss in Game 2, combined to strikeout five in three scoreless innings in Game 3.

3. Detroit’s string of right-handed starters has kept the right-handed side of the A’s platoons on the bench. Seth Smith and Brandon Moss will likely continue to start in place of Jonny Gomes and Chris Carter.

Orioles & Yankees Head To Game 4 In The Bronx

Joe Girardi is undecided on possibly moving Alex Rodriguez down in the order.

Thus far, the MLB playoffs have looked a lot like the regular season...very competitive. None of the division round matchups will end in sweeps, and there’s a chance that at least the Orioles-Yankees series will go the maximum five games.

As we said, that’s no surprise, considering the nature of the 2012 campaign.

Whether the Baltimore-New York series goes to a deciding fifth game will depend upon the outcome of Thursday night’s riveting Game 4 matchup in The Bronx. Birds manager Buck Showalter sends the startlingly-effective Joe Saunders to the mound to oppose the Yankees’ Phil Hughes.

First pitch is scheduled at 7:35 p.m. (ET) on Thursday night, with TBS providing the TV coverage.

The Orioles announced their intention to stay in this series after battling back for a 3-2 win in Game 2 on Monday night. That result came after the Yankees had erupted for five runs in the ninth inning of Game 1, when Russell Martin’s homer triggered an avalanche of runs and provided CC Sabathia with more than enough cushion for a 7-2 win. Baltimore, however, battled back to level the series on Monday.

Battling back has been a Birds trademark all season. Especially against the Yankees, who had long dominated this rivalry vs. their AL East rivals and won the first four games between the teams this season. Entering Wednesday night’s Game 3, however, Baltimore had won 10 of the past 16 meetings.

One of the main topics of discussion as this ALDS headed back to The Bronx was what Joe Girardi might want to do with the struggling Alex Rodriguez, who struck out five times in the first two games at Camden Yards and managed just one hit in nine at bats over the two games in Baltimore. A-Rod’s numbers dipped this season, and his production has waned since returning from a hand injury in September, with 67 consecutive at bats without an extra-base hit.

There have been suggestions (if you can call them as much) in the New York media that Girardi ought to drop A-Rod from his third spot in the batting order. But Girardi, recalling how much controversy predecessor Joe Torre caused when dropping A-Rod to the eighth spot in the batting order during the 2006 ALDS against the Tigers, might want to avoid causing such a stir...especially since he believes A-Rod is close to a breakout after making solid contact on a few of his outs in Baltimore.

But many Yanks fans would rather see 2B Robinson Cano, who had nine straight multi-hit games to finish the regular season, plus an RBI double on Monday night, moved up to the three spot in the batting order.

Rodriguez, however, wasn’t the only Yankee to struggle in Monday’s loss, as the Bronx Bombers were just 2 for 10 with runners in scoring position, stranding ten in the 3-2 defeat.

Whatever the batting order looks like on Thursday night, the Yanks will be trying to solve the lefty Saunders, who has been remarkably effective since joining the O’s from Arizona, with whom he had posted a mediocre 6-10 record, in late August. After a shaky first outing vs. the White Sox, Saunders was superb in his six subsequent regular-season starts, posting a 2.75 ERA. Baltimore won four of those six starts and lost the other two only when providing Saunders with minimal run support.

One of Saunders’ starts with the O’s was a modestly-effective 5 2/3 inning stint vs. the Yankees on September 8, allowing two runs and five hits in an eventual 5-4 Birds win. He’s 3-1 in his career vs. the Yankees but has yet to pitch in the new stadium in The Bronx, which opened in 2009.

Hughes' recent efforts are cause for concern. Over his last three regular-season starts, Hughes was hit hard, allowing 18 hits and 13 runs (all earned) over 16 1/3 IP, with an ERA of 7.16. In two September starts vs. the Orioles, Hughes was not especially sharp, allowing 14 hits and eight runs (7 earned) over 11 IP in games Sept. 2 and 7, splitting decisions. Over his career, Hughes is 6-4 vs. the O’s with a 5.10 ERA.

Hughes, however, did pitch better this season at Yankee Stadium than on the road, as his 11-4 record and 3.74 ERA in the Bronx would indicate.
