0-3 on a Friday always sucks but that’s what we get for playing 2 out of 3 underdogs. The matchups looks great but they didn’t go our way. Today is going to be huge and we have a JACKHAMMER.
Blue Jays (Gaviglio) (-180) - The Jays come into today’s match up against Matthew Boyd with a .345 avg & .724 slg% in 58 at bats. 5 of the 9 hitters in the Jays lineup have taken Boyd deep before and 11 of their 20 hits have been extra base hits. Sam Gaviglio will start for the Jays and he has made one career start against the Tigers where he allowed 2 earned runs over 5 innings in a 6-2 win on June 19, 2017.
Angels (Skaggs) (-150) - No one in this Orioles lineup has ever got a base hit against Tyler Skaggs, they are a combined 0-9 against him with 5 strikeouts. The Angels offense looked good last night when they scored 7 runs and they should look good again today against Andrew Cashner and his 4.70 earned run average. He’s giving up 3 or more runs like he does every start and Skaggs hasn’t allowed more than 3 runs in over a month. Let’s go Angels!
Brewers (Chacin) (Even) - 6 of the 9 hitters in the Brew Crew lineup have faced Tyler Mahle before and they have a .385 avg & .615 slg% in 13 at bats. The Brewers beat him 2-0 earlier this season on April 18. Jhoulys Chacin will go for the Brewers and he’s held this Reds lineup to a .254 avg in 67 at bats.
Astros (-1.5) (Verlander) - Verlander has dominated this Rays lineup and has held them to a .171 avg in 82 at bats. He just pitched 6.2 innings against them less than two weeks ago and only allowed one earned run. There’s been multiple starting pitchers named for the Rays in this one but I’m trusting the Astros to get Verlander some run support even without Carlos Correa in the lineup.
Red Sox (Sale) (-140) - Sale was dominant in his first start against the Yankees this season on April 10 when he only allowed 1 earned run in 6 innings pitched which came on a homerun by Aaron Judge. It was about time Judge did something against Sale as he entered that game 2-11 with 10 strikeouts against him. The Red Sox won that game 14-1. Sale has held this powerful Yanks lineup to a .237 avg in 97 at bats. The Sox will take on Sonny Gray who is not who he used to be. They put up 6 earned runs in 3 innings against him back on April 12 of this year. Look for Sale to dominate and the Sox bats to get to Gray early and often. J A C K H A M M E R!
