LA Dodgers Close Year At Arizona Diamondbacks

The Dodgers have dropped four of Hiroki Kuroda’s last five starts in Phoenix.
The Arizona Diamondbacks have already clinched the National League West Division, but remain focused on gaining home-field advantage in the NL Divisional round if they can catch the Milwaukee Brewers, who hold a one-game advantage.

Tuesday night's first pitch against the Los Angeles Dodgers inside raucous Chase Field is scheduled for 9:40 (ET).

Arizona entered this series off a three-game sweep of the San Francisco Giants, boosting its record to 42-27 versus the division. The club is in the final stretch of playing 28 of its final 31 games against such opponents, producing an 19-6 mark thus far.

The Diamondbacks hold a 9-6 series advantage over the Dodgers coming into the final three meetings of the season, including an even 3-3 mark at tonight’s venue.

Success since the All-Star break has directly led to the team’s run to the division title. The Diamondbacks lead all major league teams with 27 home wins since that point. Arizona is also one of three teams in the league that is undefeated when leading after eight innings, posting an 84-0 record, joined by the Boston Red Sox (75-0) and Detroit Tigers (79-0).

Outfielder Justin Upton could miss some time in the final games of the regular season after getting hit in the helmet by San Francisco’s hard-throwing Tim Lincecum on Sunday. Upton is listed as day-to-day.

Jarrod Parker is expected to make his first MLB start in this contest. The ninth overall pick of the 2007 draft underwent Tommy John surgery in 2009 and missed the entire 2010 season. It’s expected that he will be a serious candidate to join the starting rotation during the 2011 campaign.

Parker tallied an 11-8 record and 3.79 ERA at Double-A Mobile this year, helping to lead the squad to the Southern League championship.

Bettors will find that the Diamondbacks are 35-17 at home versus right-handed starters.

Los Angeles has plenty to play for in trying to end the season with a record above .500. The team has won seven of its last nine games and has gone 43-27 since July 7.

Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp is also getting plenty of media attention as he makes a run at the NL MVP award, while also staying in the conversation of possibly winning the Triple Crown. The All-Star entered the series tied with St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols with 37 home runs, leading the league RBIs, while sitting seven points behind Milwaukee’s Ryan Braun with a .324 batting average.

Hiroki Kuroda (13-16, 3.17 ERA) will make his 32nd start of the season, coming in off two consecutive home wins over the Pittsburgh Pirates and San Francisco Giants. He allowed four runs (three earned) and 10 hits over 13 innings over that span.

The right-hander has registered an even 7-7 mark and 3.05 ERA in 14 road starts, issuing 25 free passes and compiling 75 strikeouts.

Los Angeles is 1-4 in Kuroda’s last five road starts versus the Diamondbacks, while the ‘under’ is 4-1 in the last five meetings overall in the desert.

With temperatures still reaching the century mark in Phoenix, the roof is likely to be closed at Chase Field for the entire series.

Texas Rangers, LA Angels MLB Betting Preview

The Los Angeles Angels likely need a sweep over the Texas Rangers when they start their 3-game home series on Monday night. This is the final series for each squad with the regular season ending Wednesday.

First pitch from Angel Stadium of Anaheim will be at 10:05 p.m. (ET), with the MLB odds to be released shortly at Don Best. The pitching matchup is Dan Haren versus C.J. Wilson, with both guys suffering minor injuries last time out.

Los Angeles (86-72) trails the Red Sox by 2.5 games and Tampa Bay by one for the AL wild card. That’s pending the Sunday results with the Angels 130 home favorites over Oakland, the freefalling Red Sox playing two at the Yankees and Tampa hosting Toronto.

The Angels made a run in the AL West with a 15-6 stretch that began in mid-August. However, they’re just 6-7 in their last 13 games and Texas was able to clinch the division last Friday night.

Haren (16-9, 3.16 ERA) went eight strong innings at Toronto last Wednesday, allowing just one run in a 7-2 win. He was hit by a liner on his non-throwing wrist on his final out recorded, but is listed as probable.

Haren has pitched mostly away this second half (9-of-14 starts). The Angels are 8-0 in his last eight at home (2.43 ERA). His last four home outings have been a tiny 2.10 ERA.

The ‘over’ is 8-2 in Haren’s last 10 starts overall, but most of that is due to solid run support (5.6 runs per game).

The 31-year-old right-hander has a 7.11 ERA against Texas this year, pitching poorly in two of three starts. The one at home was in July, getting roughed up for seven earned runs over 4 1/3 innings with the Angels still winning 9-8.

Texas (92-66) quietly has the second best record in the AL, but the defending pennant champ still isn’t getting a lot of national buzz. The team is 10-2 in its last 12 games, but manager Ron Washington has already started to rest some of his starting position players. That will certainly continue this series.

Wilson (16-7, 2.97 ERA) has done a great job inheriting the ace tag from Cliff Lee and has already been named Game 1 starter in the ALDS. The quality of the starters after him is a big postseason question.

The 30-year-old lefty had a blister during last Wednesday’s start at Oakland, but still allowed just two earned runs over six innings (3-2 win). Texas is 7-2 in his last nine starts and he’s been almost spotless in five September outings (1.27 ERA).

Wilson has averaged almost 114 pitches his last four starts, but will be on a much lower count for Monday. He’s 1-1 with a miniscule 0.60 ERA at the Angels this year and has a 2.81 ERA in five starts overall against them (Texas winning three).

Los Angeles is just 1-4 in its last five games against a lefty starter.

Texas leads the season series 9-7, including going 4-3 on the road. The ‘over’ is 5-2 in the last seven meetings overall.

The Angels are 45-32 at home (+5.3 units), 19-10 in the second half. The ‘under’ is 6-1 in their last seven home games. The Rangers are just 41-37 away (+1.5 units).

Southern California weather should be beautiful, clear and in the 60s. The Angels will have Jered Weaver and Ervin Santana pitch on Tuesday and Wednesday respectively. Texas will counter with Colby Lewis and Matt Harrison.

Detroit Tigers Tune Up For Playoffs Vs Indians

The Detroit Tigers open up their final home series of the regular season Monday evening against the second-place Cleveland Indians. The game is scheduled to start at 7:05 p.m. (ET) from Comerica Park.

The Tigers have defeated the Indians seven straight times and nine of their last 12 going into this series Monday.

Starting for Cleveland will be the ace of the pitching staff, Ubaldo Jimenez (10-12, 4.52 overall and 4-3, 4.62 with Indians). The Indians are 5-5 in Ubaldo’s 10 starts since being traded from the Colorado Rockies at the end of July.

Jimenez has faced the Tigers three times as a Cleveland Indian and once as a member of the Rockies this season. Ubaldo is 2-2 in those four starts, with his most recent road start versus the Tigers being his worst start of the season by far (3 1/3 IP, 9 H, 8 ER, 3 BB, 4 K).

Ubaldo is winless in three starts in his career at Comerica Park, allowing 15 earned runs in 14 1/3 innings with a WHIP of over two.

The Tigers' 3-4-5 hitters – Delmon Young, Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez – are hitting a combined .404 career batting average (17-for-42) versus Jimenez.

Pitching for the Tigers in this American League Central series will be recently acquired right-handed starter Doug Fister (10-13, 2.94 overall and 7-1, 2.02 with Tigers). Fister was traded from the Seattle Mariners right before the trade deadline at the end of July.

Fister has won four consecutive starts dating back to September 1 and has not lost a start since August 14 at Baltimore. The Tigers have won eight of the 10 games in which Fister has started for them.

Fister has allowed only five walks and struck out a total of 48 batters in his last 62 1/3 innings pitched since the beginning of August.

Cleveland shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera is questionable for Monday’s game versus the Tigers. Cabrera left Saturday’s game with a right elbow contusion. The Indians also lost outfielder Trevor Crowe for the remainder of the season just two days ago. Crowe left the September 24th game against the Twins with a shoulder strain.

The ‘over’ is 3-0 in Ubaldo’s last three starts overall, while the ‘under’ is 5-1 in Fister’s last six starts.

Monday’s weather forecast in the Motor City shows a high probability of scattered thunderstorms and an evening temperature in the low-50s.

NL Wild Card On Line For Braves Against Phillies

September 1 may not seem like a long time ago, and it wasn't in the grand scheme of things. But it probably feels like ancient history to the Atlanta Braves who are clinging to the National League Wild Card as the regular season schedule draws to a close.

Fredi Gonzalez's gang held an 8.5-game lead in the hunt for the final playoff spot in the Senior Circuit when play ended on Sept. 1. The Braves were 26-games above .500 (81-55) and seemed a cinch to be in the postseason. Then again, the Boston Red Sox looked to be a sure-thing for October baseball around the same time.

Atlanta will take a 1-game lead for the wild card into Monday's home series opener against the Philadelphia Phillies. The St. Louis Cardinals are just behind Gonzalez & Co., and will be in Houston the next three days.

Less than four weeks ago, the Braves looked to be a good bet to meet the Phillies in the NLCS. To even make the NLDS, Atlanta now has to figure out a way to beat Phils lefty Cliff Lee (21-10, 2.38) who started at -135 on Monday's MLB odds against Braves rookie Randall Delgado (4-2, 2.70).

The Game 1 total opened at seven runs at most early baseball betting shops.

This will be Lee's tune-up for the playoffs, with all signs pointing to him starting Game 2 of the NLDS next Sunday in Philadelphia. It's also his last chance to possibly impress NL Cy Young voters, though that's not a priority for Phils skipper Charlie Manuel who simply wants to get his second ace ready for postseason play.

Lee has proven to be human on the road with a 3.03 ERA in 13 starts. Philadelphia has won eight of those games, including the last five.

The southpaw has been just about unbeatable since the all-star break, posting a 1.71 ERA in 12 assignments and a WHIP just below one. Philadelphia is 10-2 in that span.

His lone start at Turner Field this year was in early April, and it wasn't pretty. Lee hit the showers after just 3 1/3 innings and having allowed six runs on 10 hits, a walk and a hit batsman. That game closed with Lee a slight 110 favorite.

It's the first career appearance vs. the Phillies for Delgado who is coming off consecutive wins over the Marlins. One came here in Atlanta and the other in Miami, the young right-hander tossing five innings in both and allowing just a single earned run in the two outings combined.

The opposition is only batting .214 against the young Panamanian who has a respectable 1.23 WHIP but just an 18:13 strikeout-to-walk ratio in his 30 innings.

Philadelphia enters the series with a 9-6 edge this season in meetings with the Braves. The clubs have split the six matchups, with this the first series at Turner Field since mid-May. The 'over' has a slight 3-2-1 lean in this park.

Game 1 of the series gets underway at 7:10 p.m. (ET). Afternoon showers and t-storms are in the Atlanta forecast but the chances taper off as the evening progresses. The thermometer will be in the upper-70s for first pitch with a 10-15 mph SSW wind (out to left-center).

Roy Oswalt and Cole Hamels await the Braves in Games 2 and 3. Atlanta will turn to veterans Derek Lowe and Tim Hudson in those games, assuming Hudson will be necessary in the season finale. The way things are going for the Braves, he will be.

Rays make final playoff push hosting Yankees

NEW YORK YANKEES (97-62)

at TAMPA BAY RAYS (88-71)


First pitch: Monday, 7:05 p.m. EDT
Line: Tampa Bay -215, New York +195, Total: 8.5

The Rays remarkable September playoff push will come down to this three-game series against the division rival New York Yankees. Tampa was nine games back on September 4, and now finds itself one game back of the Wild Card-leading Red Sox with three games remaining.

The Yankees will send Hector Noesi (2-1, 4.14 ERA) to the mound on Monday night. Noesi made his first major-league start on Wednesday in which he threw 2.2 innings and allowed two runs on four hits. The youngster has appeared in four games against the Rays and holds an impressive 2.08 ERA against them. On the hill for the Rays is right-hander James Shields (15-12, 2.84 ERA). Despite Shields’ 1-3 record against the Yanks in 2011, he has been very effective, posting a 2.40 ERA and striking out 27 Yankees in 30 innings. Tampa has won 20 of its past 28 home games, and the Yankees are only 53-50 in night games. With the Yankees having nothing to play for and the Rays having everything in the world to play for, expect a solid start from James Shields and TAMPA BAY to get the home victory on Monday night.

The FoxSheets show another trend backing the Rays:

Home teams (TAMPA BAY) - AL team with a low on-base percentage (<=.320) against a team with a good bullpen (WHIP <=1.350), with a starting pitcher whose strikes out 5 or more batters per start. (145-80 over the last 5 seasons.) (64.4%, +47.5 units. Rating = 2*).

The young Dominican right-hander, Hector Noesi, has been a spot reliever all year, but will be asked to make his second start of his career on Monday night because Phil Hughes is still experiencing back problems. The Yankees have secured home field advantage through the ALCS and now will play the role of spoiler. With the division series opener beginning on Friday, it won’t be surprising if New York rests some of its key players. The Yankees have won six of eight and would love to keep that momentum going into the playoffs.

Shields will face the Yankees for his second consecutive start. He threw 7.1 innings on Wednesday, allowing four runs on six hits in a 4-2 loss to New York. Shields pitched well in the defeat, but was unable to get the run support he needed. The Rays have had their chances to overtake the Red Sox and finishing up against a Yankees team that has nothing to play for might be just what they need.

Monday’s betting tips: ‘Skins riding ATS streak vs. Dallas

Who’s hot

NFL: Washington has covered the number in seven of their last nine meetings with the Dallas Cowboys.

MLB: St. Louis has won 20 of its last 28 games overall.

MLB: The Washington Nationals have won their last eight road games.

Who’s not

NFL: Dallas is riding a 3-5-1 slump against the spread dating back to last season.

MLB: Kansas City has won only four of its last 18 games in Minnesota.

MLB: Pittsburgh has won only seven of its last 51 games in Milwaukee.

Key stat

25 - The Colorado Rockies set a franchise record by amassing 25 hits in a 19-3 romp at Houston on Sunday. Jordan Pacheco, Ty Wigginton and Tommy Field had four hits apiece to help the Rockies surpass the previous record of 24. The Rockies are set as +120 underdogs at San Francisco Monday.

Injury that shouldn’t be overlooked

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin has officially been ruled out for Monday's game against the NFC East rival Washington Redskins. Austin reeled in nine catches for 143 yards and three touchdowns last Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers, but exited with a hamstring injury. The ailment is rumored to cost Austin until perhaps after their bye week. Kevin Ogletree will start in Austin's place on Monday.

Game of the day

Washington Redskins at Dallas Cowboys (3.5, 45.5)

Notable quotable

"It's pretty emotional, obviously. You have the best fans in baseball; over 3 million people every year come and support this ballclub. Obviously, it's not over. Our season's not over. And I just want to make sure that I stay focused and do what I need to do." – Albert Pujols on the standing ovation he received from Cardinals fans Sunday in what could end up being his last home game with St. Louis if the club doesn’t make the playoffs. Pujols becomes an unrestricted free agent in the offseason.

Notes and tips

The St. Louis Cardinals stayed alive in the wild card race with a 3-2 victory over the visiting Chicago Cubs on Sunday. The Cardinals pulled to within one game of the Atlanta Braves in the National League wild card chase. The Braves dropped a 3-0 decision against the Washington Nationals on Sunday.

Tiger Woods has hired Joe LaCava as his third full-time caddie. LaCava served as Dustin Johnson’s bag man most recently, but has extensive experience on the tour. "Joe is an outstanding caddie, and I have known him for many years. I've personally seen the great job he did for Freddie [Couples],” Woods told reporters. “I'm anxious for us to be working together."

Toronto Blue Jays manager John Farrell will not be with the team Monday for the start of the final series of the season at Chicago. Farrell's son, Luke, is scheduled to undergo major surgery. Bench coach Don Wakamatsu will take the place of Farrell. He also filled in when Farrell missed 10 games due to pneumonia.Meanwhile, slugger Jose Bautista left Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Rays with a contusion on his left knee. Bautista crashed into the wall in the first inning which chasing down a fly ball - which turned into an inside-the-park homer - by Ben Zobrist. The 29-year-old Bautista played five innings before being replaced by Mark Teahen. He has been listed as day-to-day. Bautista entered the game batting .305 with 43 homers and 103 RBIs this season.

Armadillo: Monday's six-pack

Six wealthiest people in America, according to Forbes magazine.....
6) Christy Walton, $24.5B age 56. Guess Wal-Mart makes money.

T4) Charles Koch, $25B age 75. His money is diversified. So is mine.

T4) David Koch, $25B age 71 Apparently these two are related.

3) Larry Ellison, $33B age 67. Tried to buy the Warriors in 2009.

2) Warren Buffett, $39B age 81. Wonder if he wants to adopt?

1) Bill Gates $59B age 55. Must be good to be him.


***********************


Armadillo: Monday's List of 13: Wrapping up an NFL Sunday........

13) In their three games so far, Vikings led 17-7, 17-0, 20-0 at halftime, but they've lost all three games. Not sure this has ever happened before, but it ain't good, especially for a team with an old quarterback. Lions won in the Metrodome for the first time in 14 years, 26-23 in OT.

Minnesota has outscored its three opponents 54-7 in the first half, and yet they're 0-3. Vikings are 1 for 15 on third downs in the second half this year while their opponents are 13 for 22- they were outgained 190-6 in the third quarter by Detroit Sunday. Getting consistently outplayed after halftime means the coaching staff isn't making good adjustments.

12) Detroit is now 3-0 for the first time since 1980; Buffalo is also 3-0, as they rallied back from down 21-0 to beat Patriots 34-31. Its good for the NFL when these previously downtrodden franchises get invigorated.

11) Bills had the ball 12 times Sunday; they started 10 of the 12 drives 80+ yards from the goal line- they had TD drives of 95/96 drives, but the four INTs of Brady, including one in the red zone, were also huge.

10) Very bad day for the Eagles, losing at home to the Giants, and losing Michael Vick to multiple injuries, including a broken right hand. Not sure how long a broken bone in his non-throwing hand will keep him out.

9) I'm not going to vent about the Rams just yet, but lets say its pretty damn sad when I'm thumbing thru an NFL Media Guide on September 25 looking for assistant coaches who might coach the team next year. Their talent level isn't this bad, but the thing that irked me was punting twice in the last 7:00 last Monday, when they trailed 28-16. Never give up.

They simply were not ready to play against the Ravens Sunday. I'll let you decide whose responsibility that is.

8) Early in second quarter of the Jet-Raider game, there was a play when they called both intentional grounding and roughing the passer; pretty sure I've never seen those two things called on the same play before.

7) 85 pass attempts in Buffalo, no sacks. Bills are only team in the last 60 years to win in consecutive weeks, overcoming deficits of 18+ points in both games. In their two home games, they've been outscored 41-3 in the first half. Buffalo trailed 21-0 Sunday, but now they're in 1st place.

6) Bizarre weather just before halftime made Jacksonville-Carolina game a little weird; a monsoon blew thru Charlotte, making the field a quagmire, but Jaguars somehow went 76 yards in two plays in 0:17 for their only TD of the game. Field remained soaked the rest of the game, which made the footballs wet, giving the two rookie QBs even more trouble.

Cam Newton didn't have a great day (18-34/158) but he did what really good QBs do; with game on the line in cruddy weather, he led his team to the winning TD. It wasn't pretty, but it is his first NFL win.

5) As for home teams who played their first two games on the road, they were 2-2, with underdogs covering all four games. Road teams that played their first two games at home were 1-3 SU, 3-1 vs spread, with underdogs covering all four of those games too.

4) At 3:40 Sunday afternoon, with eight early games in the fourth quarter, all of them had a scoring margin of six or less points. Good stuff.

3) Over was 22-8-2 in NFL's first two weeks, but under made comeback Sunday, going 9-5. 14 TDs were scored in Week 1 on either special teams or defense, but since then, defenses have scored five TDs in 31 games, as two were scored in the Steeler-Colt game, with no special teams scores the last two weeks. My Rams gave up two of those five TDs in the last two weeks- their offense has allowed a defensive score in all three games this season. Terrific.

2) Teams that lost the turnover battle were 2-9 Sunday, as Chargers (-14) and Saints (-4) won close games at home (20-17/40-33), despite having turnover ratios of -1. Thru three weeks, the team with fewer turnovers in 28-6 SU. In the 12 games where turnovers were even, favorites are 7-5 vs the spread. Overall, favorites are 19-24-3 against the spread.

1) Five teams didn't turn the ball over Sunday; Minnesota was the only loser, but they played Detroit, who also didn't commit a turnover. Other three teams won their games by 6-10-13 points.
