2-1 last night and the JACKHAMMER hits to move our JH record to 15-3 this MLB season. I hope you all double down on that one! Ready for back to back days with a JACKHAMMER? I am!

Rockies (Freeland) (-115) - JACKHAMMER 🔨 The Rockies won 19-2 last night. Holy fuck. I’m expecting the bats to be swinging again today when they take on Robbie Ray who they have a .358 avg & .687 slg% against in 134 at bats. Ray is 3-1 this season but he has allowed 4 & 6 earned runs in his last two starts. Kyle Freeland will start for the Rockies and he has held this DBacks lineup to a .243 avg in 37 at bats. Freeland hasn’t given up more than 2 earned runs in each of his last 5 starts. Great value in this one.

Nationals / Mets Under (7) - We have Max Scherzer and Steven Matz pitching in this one and they both have good history against the opposing starting lineups. Scherzer has held this Mets lineup to a .265 avg in 166 at bats. Matz has dominated the Nats lineup holding them to a .230 avg in 87 at bats. The Mets just went under for us last night and we all know the Nats have struggled scoring runs this season. Under.

Rays (Snell) (-117) - You guys know I have been high on Snell and he has a great matchup tonight. He comes in 12-4 with a 2.09 earned run average. He pitched 7 innings and only allowed 1 earned run against this Twins team earlier this season in a 10-1 win. The Rays will be up against Kyle Gibson who they have a .333 avg in 54 at bats. He also started in the 10-1 loss to the Rays earlier this season on April 21.

Mariners (Paxton) (-105) - James Paxton has been king of the hill against this Angels lineup and they have never had much success against him. He’s held them to a .190 avg in 147 at bats. I’m counting on him to dominate in this one and the Mariners should be able to get him a few runs off of Tyler Skaggs who they have 6 career homeruns against and are hitting a respectable .285 in 84 at bats.
