Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Cincinnati Reds – 6:40 PM ET
The Arizona Diamondbacks and the Cincinnati Reds head into Game 3 of their series today. The Diamondbacks, currently 26-31, have lost four games in a row so far. Two of their last four losses were to the Reds. Taking the mound for the Diamondbacks is Merrill Kelly, who has a record of 4-3 this season. Kelly has an ERA of 3.66 over the course of 59.0 innings.
The Cincinnati Reds have won two of their last five games and are now 20-35. As they continue to win games, they inch closer to a .500 record. As a team, their batting average of .237 has helped them get ahead of the Diamondbacks early. The LHP Mike Minor will get the start today, Minor has a record of 0-1 with an ERA of 11.25. We’ll take the Diamondbacks +100 here.
St. Louis Cardinals vs. Tampa Bay Rays – 7:10 PM ET
The St. Louis Cardinals have a record of 32-24 this season but lost yesterday to the Rays. Today, they’ll look to bounce back and add another win under their belt. The Cardinals rank second in the NL Central and they’re not far from the top spot. Packy Naughton, the starting pitcher for tonight’s game is 0-1 as a starter this season.
The Tampa Bay Rays will send RHP Corey Kluber out to the mound today. Kluber has a record of 2-2 this season with an ERA of 3.73. Yesterday, the Rays beat the Cardinals 4-2 behind some pretty stellar pitching. Today, they’ll look to do the same with Kluber on the mound. Although the Cardinals have an edge in terms of batting, we’ll take the Rays -170.
Oakland Athletics vs. Atlanta Braves – 7:20 PM ET
The Oakland Athletics are on a seven-game losing streak at the moment. With such poor play, the Athletics have fallen to 20-37 this season. Tonight, they’ll send out Jared Koenig, a pitcher that has yet to throw for them. With a team batting average of .209, their chances against the Atlanta Braves aren’t looking good.
Atlanta has won five of their last five games, the most recent being a 3-2 win over Oakland. On the mound for Atlanta today is Ian Anderson, who has a 4-3 record this season. With Koenig on the mound for the Athletics, the Braves batters should have a good day. We’ll go with Atlanta to win this one -240.
Philadelphia Phillies vs. Milwaukee Brewers – 8:10 PM ET
With a record of 26-29 this season, the Phillies are set to face the Brewers tonight. Yesterday, the Phillies were able to notch a 3-2 win over the Brewers. Yesterday’s win brought the Phillies winning streak to five games in a row. Aaron Nola has been named the starting pitcher for tonight’s game. Nola has a record of 3-4 with an ERA of 3.92 over 66.2 innings pitched.
The Milwaukee Brewers are looking to bounce back from yesterday’s loss. Ranking first in the NL Central, the Brewers have a record of 33-24. The Phillies have a notable edge over the Brewers in terms of batting average. However, the Brewers have the edge over Philadelphia in pitching. So we’ll go with Milwaukee at home tonight +115.
Boston Red Sox vs. Los Angeles Angels – 9:38 PM ET
Now entering the third game of the series, the Boston Red Sox faces the Los Angeles Angels. Both of the first two games went to the Red Sox, whose elite batting led them to a win. Boston’s team batting average of .260 was able to secure victories in both games. Tonight, they’ll rely on Nathan Eovaldi, their starting pitcher, to help them win Game 3.
The Los Angeles Angels are in a tough spot after losing 13 games in a row. Now, they face the Red Sox again, a team that’s better than them at the plate and on the mound. The 2-2 Reid Detmers will get the start on the mound today. Detmers has an ERA of 4.20 over the course of 45.0 innings. Still, we’ll have to go with the Red Sox to win this game -170.
