Preview: Indians (9-13) at Royals (13-9)

Game: 4
Venue: Ewing M. Kauffman Stadium
Date: April 29, 2013 8:10 PM EDT


After each team took turns in coming up with big efforts at the plate in a doubleheader split, it could be time for the Kansas City Royals to do so in Monday night's series finale with the Cleveland Indians.

The Royals try to add to the woes of beleaguered Indians starter Ubaldo Jimenez when these teams complete a four-game set at Kauffman Stadium.

Friday's rainout created Sunday's doubleheader, with Kansas City (13-9) winning 9-0 in the opener before Cleveland (9-13) bounced back with a 10-3 rout in the nightcap.

The winless Jimenez (0-2, 10.06 ERA) has had a full week off to try to fix his problems since yielding four runs in five-plus innings in last Sunday's 5-4 victory at Houston.

That effort marked improvement after the right-hander allowed seven runs in each of his previous two outings.

Jimenez is allowing left-handers to bat .316 with all four home runs against him while right-handed hitters are just 4 for 24 (.167).

There is hope for him Monday since he has fared well versus several Royals regulars, with Jeff Francoeur 5 for 27 against him, Alcides Escobar 2 for 13, Billy Butler 3 for 12 and Alex Gordon 2 for 12.

Jimenez is 2-2 with a 4.43 ERA in four career starts against Kansas City.

Wade Davis (2-1, 3.20) will start Monday for the Royals after he was tagged for seven runs over 3 2-3 innings in Wednesday's 7-5 loss at Detroit. He entered that outing with 12 consecutive scoreless innings.

The right-hander has posted a 2.70 ERA in winning both career starts against the Indians, back in 2010 while with Tampa Bay. Davis made four relief appearances against them last year, allowing two runs over 5 1-3 innings.

He has limited Mark Reynolds to three hits in 15 at_bats, although two were home runs. Nick Swisher is 2 for 13 against Davis.

Reynolds is 3 for 12 in this series and Swisher is 2 for 9, but Carlos Santana is 7 for 13.

Former Royals infielder Mike Aviles hit a three-run homer and finished with a career-high five RBIs in the second game while Santana added four hits as Cleveland went 4 for 9 with runners in scoring position after going 0 for 8 in the opener.

"That's why it's game to game,' manager Terry Francona said. "We got leadoff runners on and we kind of go down the line. We got a lead, which also helps, and then we added on."

The Royals committed three errors that helped lead to four unearned runs as their three-game win streak ended.

"We played crummy,' manager Ned Yost said. "We didn't play good. We didn't play good defensively. We didn't make smart decisions on the base paths. It happens. You have games like this. The important thing is you forget it and come back tomorrow ready to go.'

Gordon went 10 for 26 with three homers and eight RBIs in a six-game span before going hitless in four at_bats in Sunday's nightcap.

Preview: Rockies (15-10) at Dodgers (12-12)

Game: 1
Venue: Dodger Stadium
Date: April 29, 2013 10:10 PM EDT


A rough stretch may get even tougher for the Colorado Rockies, and a three-game series with the resurgent Los Angeles Dodgers isn't the only reason.

The Rockies may be without shortstop Troy Tulowitzki as they go for just their third win in nine games in Monday night's opener.

Colorado (15-10) opened the season by winning 13 of 17, batting .318 with runners in scoring position while hitting 27 homers and averaging 5.9 runs.

The Rockies haven't been nearly that productive while dropping six of eight, scoring 3.4 per contest and batting .227 with runners in scoring position - .179 while dropping three of four at Arizona over the weekend.

They managed 12 runs in that series, losing Sunday's finale 4-2.

"As long as you continue to go out on a day in and day out basis and play good hard baseball and continue to do the right things, it will definitely work out," said starter Jon Garland, Sunday's losing pitcher. "We have already seen what we are able to do when we get some guys hot offensively and we are throwing the ball good."

Possibly doing that without Tulowitzki will likely be a tougher challenge.

The two-time All-Star will be re-evaluated after leaving Sunday's game with a strained left shoulder after an awkward slide home in the first inning. He was easily tagged out, and remained in the game for two more innings before being replaced by Jonathan Herrera.

"I didn't know he got hurt on the play," manager Walt Weiss said. "It sounds like he jammed his shoulder sliding into the plate."

Tulowitzki has a .308 average with six homers and a team-high 22 RBIs. He's hitting .347 with 22 RBIs and a .653 slugging average over his last 25 meetings with Los Angeles (12-12).

Colorado has dropped four straight overall to the Dodgers, and at Chavez Ravine with Tulowitzki on the disabled list with a groin injury.

The Rockies certainly felt that absence during those four defeats in Los Angeles, getting outscored 24-5 while hitting .220.

Facing Ted Lilly may not help, either.

The left-hander is 10-2 with a 3.92 ERA in 14 career starts versus Colorado, going 6-0 with a 2.86 ERA over the last seven.

Lilly is also coming off an impressive performance in his first start in 11 months after undergoing shoulder surgery. He yielded one run with seven strikeouts in five innings of Wednesday's 7-3, 10-inning loss to the Mets.

"I was definitely under the impression I had to prove myself at this level, and understandably, coming off shoulder surgery, prove to myself, too," Lilly told the team's official website.

Lilly's outing is part of the rotation's 2.81 ERA over the last seven games, helping the Dodgers to five wins.

Carl Crawford is facing the Rockies for the first time since 2009 with Tampa Bay, and he's trying to continue his home success. The left fielder is batting .391 with 11 runs scored at Dodger Stadium, hitting three homers over the past three games there.

He connected for a pair of solo homers Sunday - one on the first pitch of the game - in a 2-0 win over Milwaukee.

Colorado is expected to turn to Tyler Chatwood, who is also trying to improve upon his season debut. The right-hander gave up five runs with three walks in six innings before leaving without a decision in a 6-5 win over Atlanta on Wednesday, when he replaced the injured Jhoulys Chacin in the rotation.

Chatwood is 1-1 with a 2.45 ERA in two starts at Chavez Ravine.

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

Two starters on bad teams are pitching very well and could generate good profit for those looking for a live underdog.

Here's a look at Monday's streaking and slumping starters:

Streaking

Lucas Harrell, Houston Astros (2-2, 4.08 ERA)

Don't let Harrell's numbers fool you. His stats are skewed because of a horrendous outing against Oakland on April 7, when he gave up eight earned runs in 4 1/3 innings. In his four other starts, Harrell has given up five earned runs and only two home runs. The Astros have won their last two with Harrell on the mound.

Jeff Samardzija, Chicago Cubs (1-4, 3.03 ERA)

Samardzija is another guy who is pitching gems without getting wins. The Cubs have lost all of his last four starts. But Samardzija has given up only 11 earned runs in his five starts, has struck out an average of 7.8 batters per game, and walked only 10 opponents. The under is 4-1 in his starts.


Slumping

Mike Pelfrey, Minnesota Twins (2-2, 7.94 ERA)

Pelfrey is struggling in his first month in the American League. In his last three starts, Pelfrey's been rocked for an 11.57 ERA and has only five strikeouts. The over is 4-0 in Pelftey's outings.

Matt Cain, San Francisco Giants (0-2, 6.33 ERA)

Cain looks nothing like the pitcher that had a 3.60 ERA in the 2012 playoffs, pacing the Giants to the World Series. He has given up at least one home run in each of his last three starts, and has made it to the seventh inning once. San Francisco is 0-5 in Cain's starts.
