Boston Red Sox vs Oakland Athletics

Fenway Park and the Boston Red Sox battle the Oakland Athletics in Wednesday night action.

The Boston bats got the best of the Oakland Athletics for the second straight night with a 13-5 decision on Tuesday night. Athletics Sean Manaea was hit hard with eight runs allowed on ten hits over 2.2 frames with Daniel Coulombe giving up three more. The A’s totaled 15 hits and walked once with Coco Crisp driving in a pair while Marcus Semien went 2-4 with an RBI and run. Overall every starter recorded at least one hit. Eric Surkamp will be on the mound to oppose the Red Sox in Wednesday action.  Surkamp has four starts under his belt and has gone 2-2 with a 5.59 ERA over 19.1 innings.
The Boston Red Sox have been crushing the ball and were at their best Tuesday, which overcame some average starting pitching. Red Sox starter Sean O’Sullivan was charged with four runs on 12 hits through six innings which was good enough to pick up the win. The Boston bats amassed 16 hits and a trio of base on balls with Travis Shaw going 3-5 with a homer, five RBI’s and two runs while Hanley Ramirez was 3-4 with a homer, two RBI’s and three runs. Xander Bogaerts and Chris Young each scored two times each. And every starter but one scored or drove in a run. Rick Porcello toes the rubber against the Athletics looking for his 6th victory. Porcello hopes to bounce back from a 3-2 loss at the Yankees with all three runs plated on six hits and a pair of BB in seven frames.

Oakland is 1-7 in their last 8 overall and are 1-7 in their last 8 games on grass while the over is 15-5-2 in their last 22 Wednesday games. The over is 7-1 in Boston’s last 8 vs. American League West and the Red Sox are 11-4 in their last 15 overall while going  11-4 in their last 15 games on grass. Oakland are 16-40 in the last 56 meetings in Boston and the under is 12-5 in the last 17 meetings.

Key Hitters

Red Sox: Brock Holt

2016 Season (25 Games): .282/.354/.388, 2 HR, 17 RBI
Career vs A’s (12 Games): .302/.375/.326, 4 RBI

The Brock Star has recovered from a slump to collect 5 hits in his last 14 at-bats (.357). Holt’s batting average plummeted to as low as .246 during his recent slide, but has now bounced back to the range he has been at in his two previous seasons with the Red Sox.

Athletics: Josh Reddick

2016 Season (31 Games): .319/.375/.474, 4 HR, 15 RBI
Career vs Red Sox (24 Games): .294/.354/.506, 4 HR, 17 RBI

The former Red Sox outfielder is having a career year so far. While he hasn’t quite displayed the type of power he has in the past, his AVG, OBP and SLG are all at career levels. He’s done some damage against his former team in the past, so Red Sox pitchers will need to be wary of Reddick when he steps to the plate in this series.

New York Mets vs Kansas City Royals

 New York Mets vs Kansas City RoyalsThe World Series has arrived and the Kansas City Royals and New York Mets battle for the title.

Game 1 of the best-of-seven series will be played at Kauffman Stadium and will be on October 27, 2015.

The match will start at 8:07 PM ET.

Those two teams will be the Kansas City Royals making their second straight World Series appearance as the American Leaguerepresentative and the New York Mets representing the National League for the first time since 2000. The Mets haven’t won a championship since 1986 while the Royals haven’t won since 1985.

These two teams had some different routes to this Fall Classic, however. The Mets made quick work of the Cubs in the NLCScompleting the four-game sweep, while the Royals had a little bit more work to do disposing of the Blue Jays, but ultimately got it done in six-games.

This is the first World Series ever that at least one of the teams is not one of the original 16 franchises.

Both of these teams have a significant amount of time off before this series gets going on Tuesday, so it will be interesting to see how these teams respond. Most of the champagne should have worn off by Tuesday. The Mets last played on Wednesday while the Royals last played Friday.

With the American League winning the All Star Game, they will have home field advantage which means games one, two, six* and seven* will be played in Kansas City while games three, four, and five* will be played at Citi Field in New York. (* if necessary). All games start at 8:00 p.m. EST

Game 1, Oct. 27: New York at Kansas City

Wednesday, October 21, 2015 at 4:07 pm (Rogers Centre)

E Volquez (14-10) (3.52) vs. M Estrada (14-9) (3.13)

The Line: Toronto Blue Jays -152 / Kansas City Royals +130

The Jays, who were blown out by the Kansas City Royals in Game 4 of the American League, now need to win three straight games to make it to the World Series. That battle starts today at the Rogers Centre at 4 p.m. ET.

Great pitching and a potent offense led the Kansas City Royals to a 14-2 win at the Rogers Centre and a 3-2 lead in the ALCS. Starter Chris Young gave up both runs on three hits over 4.2 frames before four relievers held the Blue Jays off the scoreboard. The KC offense did the rest with a 15 hit, five walk attack that saw Alex Rios go solo with Ben Zobrist going deep and driving in two and scoring twice. Alcides Escobar and Lorenzo Cain combined for seven RBI’s as every starter drove in runs or scored. Edinson Volquez shoots for his second win of the ALCS against the Blue Jays Wednesday. Volquez defeated Toronto 5-0 on two hits and four BB over six innings pitched.

The Toronto Blue Jays had their offense going in game three’s victory but  couldn’t carry over the momentum in Tuesday’s one sided defeat. Neither the arms or bats came through with starter RA Dickey charged with five runs on two homers through 1.2 innings. Three of the next five relievers were tagged for nine runs and that was  far too much for the Toronto offense to overcome. The Blue Jays mustered seven hits and walked twice with Jose Bautista and Josh Donaldson driving in runs while Ben Revere and Ryan Goins scored. The Blue Jays hope to keep their season alive when they send Marco Estrada to the mound. Estrada dropped a 5-0 decision to Kansas City in the ALCS with three runs scored on six hits over 5.1 frames.

Kansas City are 7-2 in their last 9 road games and are 7-3 in their last 10 games following a win while going  21-9 in Volquezs last 30 starts. The over is 7-0-4 in Toronto’s last 11 on astroturf and the over is 5-0-3 in their last 8 home games while going 6-1-1 in their last 8 games following a loss. Kansas City are 2-6 in the last 8 meetings in Toronto.

Chicago Cubs vs New York Mets

Chicago Cubs vs New York MetsCheck WagerWeb and find the best online betting site!!!!

The National League Championship Series is set: the Chicago Cubs v the Chicago Cubs of New York.

The Cubs were the only team to win their division series, and even better, they beat their hated rivals, the Cardinals, who were the only 100-win team in baseball this year. They bashed their way to their first NLCS berth since 2003, hitting 10 home runs in the final three games of their series, including a postseason-record six in their 8-6 game three win, after being shut out in game one.

From Online Betting, Casino Betting, Racebook Gambling, WagerWeb offers you the online gambling option.

 

After finishing third in the National League Central, the Cubs had the privilege of eliminating both of the two teams that finished ahead of them, the Cardinals and the Pittsburgh Pirates. With their game-four win at Wrigley Field, the Cubs clinched a postseason series on their home turf for the first time in the franchise’s history, which is incredible considering they’ve been playing since 1876.

 

Both the Cubs and the Mets enter the NLCS on a wave of momentum, overcoming opponents previous editions of themselves would have been easily bested by. The Cubs put away the St Louis Cardinals, their longtime nemesis, in four games and did it in style. They won a game in St Louis to put the fear of God into (the already wholesome and God-fearing!) Cardinals fans, and then didn’t even let the series return to St Louis.

 

The Mets’ NLDS victory was no less perception-busting. New York’s lesser-loved baseball franchise was a nice story this season, but a team whose success felt as much a function of the NL East’s malfunction as it was their own talent at hitting, catching and throwing orbs.

 

So now we have Cubs-Mets for the National League championship. It’s a dream series for MLB.

Here is the complete schedule for the NLCS:

  • Game 1: Saturday, October 17th, at Citi Field
  • Game 2: Sunday, October 18th, at Citi Field
  • Game 3: Tuesday, October 20th, at Wrigley Field
  • Game 4: Wednesday, October 21st, at Wrigley Field
  • Game 5: Thursday, October 22nd, at Wrigley Field (if necessary)
  • Game 6: Saturday, October 24th, at Citi Field (if necessary)
  • Game 7: Sunday, October 25th, at Citi Field (if necessary)

Chicago Cubs at Pittsburgh Pirates

Chicago Cubs at Pittsburgh PiratesCheck WagerWeb and find the best online betting site!!!!

The Chicago Cubs visit the Pittsburgh Pirates at 8 p.m., Eastern time, the loser will take its 97 or 98 wins and go home, while the winner will earn the right to face baseball’s best team, the St. Louis Cardinals, in the next round.

The Pirates can change the subject quickly Wednesday night in the NL wild-card game. The winner gets the St. Louis Cardinals in the Division Series starting Friday.

The clubs that combined for 195 wins both believe they can make a run provided they can survive baseball’s version of a high-wire coin flip.

Heady territory for two franchises that have spent most of this millennium taking turns at the bottom of the NL Central.

From Online Sportsbook, Casino Betting, Racebook Gambling, WagerWeb offers you the online gambling option.

If you follow the Cubs or are just a fan of the game you are aware they haven’t had much success for many years. The Cubbies struggles have actually contributed to their success this season as the generally could be found at or near the bottom of the National League Central which means the team was attractive to contenders willing to trade away prospects for proven talent. Throw in some wise trades and a few free agent acquisitions and the Cubs have turned in to a quality threat in the National League. The Cubs go with likely Cy Young award winner Jake Arrieta on the mound in the Wild Card bout with the Pirates. Arrieta has had an outstanding year with a 22-6 record and 1.77 ERA
The Pittsburgh Pirates have been one of the top teams in the National League for a few years but before that the were a non factor for a few decades. The Pirates were similar to the Cubs in that they were consistently at or near the bottom of the National League East and often traded away their talent for prospects. Having said that I saw too many poor trades being made and things haven’t begun to work out until the last few years. The Pirates in 2015 have enough quality arms and bats to win most divisions but have the misfortune of sharing the Central with St Louis. The Pirates look to ace Gerrit Cole to pitch the team past the Cubs in the Wild Card. Cole has been dominant in nine career starts versus Chicago with nine quality starts where the team has gone 8-1.

Chicago are 9-0 in their last 9 road games and  are 0-9 in their last 9 playoff games while the under is 9-2-1 in their last 12 on grass. Pittsburgh are 11-4 in their last 15 overall and  are 11-4 in their last 15 games on grass while the under is 7-3 in their last 10 on grass. Pittsburgh are 8-1 in Cole’s last 9 starts vs. Chicago and the over is 6-2 in Cole’s last 8 starts vs. Chicago.

Records

Cubs: 97-65, third best in the majors; 48-33 on the road.

Pirates: 98-64, second best; 53-28 at home.

Starters

Cubs: Jake Arrieta, 22-6, most wins in the majors; 1.77 E.R.A., second; 11-0 in August and September.

Pirates: Gerrit Cole, 19-8, tied for third in wins; 2.60 E.R.A., tied for seventh.

Tomlin is 1-2 with a 6.67 ERA and 14 strikeouts in his career against the Red Sox.

The Red Sox are 9-3 in their last 12 during game 1 of a series and 3-8 in their last 11 road games vs. a team with a losing home record. The Indians are 13-3 in their last 16 during game 1 of a series and 16-7 in their last 23 home games. The over is 12-5-1 in the last 18 meetings.

Oakland Athletics at Los Angeles Angels

Oakland Athletics at Los Angeles AngelsCheck WagerWeb and find the best betting site!!!!

The Angels have finally caught up to the Astros in this crazy AL playoff race. The Los Angeles Angels are now in control of their playoff fate thanks to one of their longest winning streaks of the year.

Los Angeles didn’t have to sweat too much for its seventh win in a row, taking an early six-run lead Tuesday in an 8-1 victory. With Houston falling 6-4 in Seattle, the Angels (83-74) moved a half-game in front of the Astros for the AL’s second wild card.

From Online Sportsbook, Casino Betting, Racebook Gambling, WagerWeb offers you the best online gambling options, check it now!

Albert Pujols had an RBI double among his three hits, Erick Aybar drove in three runs and the Angels took over the lead for the second wild-card spot with their seventh consecutive victory, 8-1 over the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday night.

A few minutes after matching their longest winning streak of the season, the Angels (83-74) moved a half-game ahead of the Astros (83-75) when Houston lost 6-4 at Seattle.

Nick Tropeano (3-2) struck out 11 during 6 2-3 innings of three-hit ball for the Angels, who have won 10 of 12 overall during their majors-best 18-8 run through September.

The Angels remained two games behind the AL West-leading Texas Rangers (85-72), who beat Detroit. The Minnesota Twins (81-75) were rained out in Cleveland, dropping them 1 1-2 games behind Los Angeles in the wild-card race.

With four games in Texas to close the season, the Angels can dictate their playoff standing no matter the result of the wild-card race. Rebounding splendidly from an awful August, the Angels have chased down the AL leaders with less than a week to play – but still plenty to lose.

Tropeano was outstanding in a big moment for a fill-in starter who has provided depth in the Angels’ rotation all season long. He nearly doubled his previous career high in strikeouts and left to a standing ovation from the Big A crowd.

Max Muncy homered for the last-place A’s, who have lost four straight and nine of 10.

Chris Bassitt (1-8) yielded eight hits and six runs before getting chased in the fourth for Oakland.

Mike Trout and Pujols had back-to-back doubles in the first inning, with Trout scoring his 100th run of the season. The 24-year-old reigning AL MVP is the first player in Angels history to score 100 runs in four separate seasons.

Pujols keyed the Angels’ fourth-inning rally with a leadoff infield single and a stolen base, running impressively on a sore foot that has limited him to designated-hitting duties for weeks. Los Angeles got all four RBIs with two outs.

St. Louis Cardinals at Pittsburgh Pirates

St. Louis Cardinals at Pittsburgh PiratesCheck WagerWeb and find the best online betting site!!!!

(espn.go.com) – The Cardinals drew closer to a third straight NL Central title on Monday night with a 3-0 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates, a triumph dimmed by a frightening collision between outfielders Stephen Piscotty and Peter Bourjos in the seventh that ended with Piscotty in the hospital.

It certainly would have been fun to see the Pirates sweep the Cardinals in this series, tie up the National League Central and set up a potential Monday tiebreaker game to determine the division title.

From Online Sportsbook, Casino Betting, Racebook Gambling, WagerWeb offers you the online gambling option.

Piscotty and Bourjos were tracking a fly ball to the gap in left-center by Pittsburgh’s Josh Harrison when Bourjos’ left knee slammed into a diving Piscotty’s head. Bourjos made the catch while his rookie teammate lay motionless on the grass at PNC Park.

Piscotty was strapped to a backboard and carted off, his head bloodied, though he managed to raise his left hand before disappearing into a tunnel. The Cardinals said tests on Piscotty were negative. He was expected to remain in the hospital overnight for observation.

St. Louis recovered in time to reduce its magic number to clinch a third straight NL Central title to two after getting to Pittsburgh closer Mark Melancon (3-2). The Cardinals can wrap up the division crown with a win in Pittsburgh on Tuesday night.

Matt Carpenter singled with one out in the ninth and scored all the way from first to break a scoreless tie when Pittsburgh right fielder Gregory Polancooverran Jon Jay’s hit and center fielder Andrew McCutchen couldn’t pick the ball up cleanly.

Reynolds then drilled his 12th homer of the year to give closer Trevor Rosenthalsome cushion for his 48th save. Jonathan Broxton (4-5) earned the win on a night the Pirates crowded the basepaths but never crossed home plate.

Pittsburgh, already assured of at least a wild-card berth, left 16 runners on base while falling four games behind the Cardinals with five to go.

It’s one the Pirates want to win to prevent the Cardinals from popping champagne in the visitor’s clubhouse at PNC Park. St. Louis’ victory took some of the buzz out of one of the most anticipated regular-season series in Pittsburgh since the park opened in 2001.

The Pirates have been relentlessly chasing the Cardinals for five months and began the final week of the regular season with a chance to catch their rivals if they could sweep a three-game series at home in a matchup of the teams with the two best records in the majors.

Instead, St. Louis did what it has done all year, relying on its pitching and just enough hitting to keep Pittsburgh at bay.

The Cardinals survived on a night they issued 10 walks. Pittsburgh put runners on base in every inning except the first, but none could find their way home on a night the Pirates went 0 for 12 with runners in scoring position, including 0 for 3 in the ninth with the tying run at the plate.

St. Louis starter Lance Lynn labored his way through five scoreless innings, most of them out of the stretch while the Pirates kept wasting opportunities to take control. Starling Marte was nailed at the plate to end the second while trying to score on a shallow fly to center by Jordy Mercer — Jason Heyward’s throw beat the speedy Marte by three steps.

Marte then struck out with the bases loaded to end the third. Polanco led off the fifth with a double only to run into an out at third on a chopper to shortstop by Josh Harrison. Lynn needed 96 pitches to retire 15 batters, walking four with six strikeouts.

Pittsburgh starter J.A. Happ, a revelation since being acquired at the non-waiver trade deadline from Seattle, was decidedly more efficient. The lefthander allowed only Kolten Wong’s single leading off the third.

Boston Red Sox (74-80) at New York Yankees (85-69)MLB Baseball: Monday, September 28, 2015 at 7:05 pm (Yankee Stadium)
The Line: New York Yankees -160 / Boston Red Sox +150
Over/Under: 8.5

The New York Yankees are on the verge of being eliminated from contention in the American League East race and the rival Boston Red Sox are waiting to push them over the edge. The Red Sox will try to post their fourth straight shutout win when they visit the Yankees in the opener of a four-game series on Monday

The Boston Red Sox look for a win after winning six of their last nine games. The Red Sox have scored 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Red Sox have won six straight when scoring more than three runs. Xander Bogaerts leads Boston with 190 hits and 80 RBI while Mookie Betts and David Ortiz have combined for 176 RBI. The Boston Red Sox have split their last six road games. Eduardo Rodriguez takes the hill, and he’s 9-6 with a 3.97 ERA and 93 strikeouts this season. Rodriguez is 2-1 with a 2.45 ERA and 11 strikeouts in his career against the Yankees.

The New York Yankees look to remain hot after winning six of their last nine games. The Yankees have scored 10 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last seven games. The Yankees have lost five of their last eight when scoring three or less runs. Chase Headley leads New York with 147 hits and 62 RBI while Brett Gardner and Didi Gregorius have combined for 119 RBI. The New York Yankees have won four of their last five home games. Masahiro Tanaka takes the hill, and he’s 12-7 with a 3.38 ERA and 136 strikeouts this season. Tanaka is 4-2 with a 4.84 ERA and 29 strikeouts in his career against the Red Sox.

The Red Sox are 8-3 in their last 11 during game 1 of a series and 0-4 in Rodriguezs last 4 road starts. The Yankees are 4-1 in their last 5 games on grass and 5-2 in their last 7 Monday games. The Red Sox are 3-10 in the last 13 meetings.

The AL East is all but out of reach for the Yankees. Also, Rodriguez has been solid against the Yankees this season and these games are usually close.

PITCHING MATCHUP:

Red Sox LH Eduardo Rodriguez (9-6, 3.97 ERA) vs. Yankees RH Ivan Nova (6-9, 4.87) Rodriguez allowed three runs on six hits and a pair of walks in six innings against Tampa Bay last Monday without factoring in the decision. That snapped a string of three straight outings of surrendering exactly one earned run, but marked the 16th time in 20 outings that the opposition failed to reach the 22-year-old Venezuelan for more than three earned runs. Rodriguez has limited New York to two or fewer runs in each of his three starts against the division rivals.Nova is 1-5 in his last six starts, but held the mighty Blue Jays to one run and four hits in 5 2/3 innings of a 4-0 loss on Wednesday. The 28-year-old Dominican has completed seven innings only once in his 15 starts this season. Nova was reached for three runs in six innings at Boston on Aug. 31 to suffer a loss to fall to 3-5 with a 4.99 ERA in 11 career games – 10 starts – against the Red Sox.

WALK-OFFS

  1. New York’s magic number to clinch a postseason spot is three.
  2. Boston SS Xander Bogaerts added two more hits on Sunday and needs 10 over the final seven games to reach 200.
  3. New York CF Jacoby Ellsbury has recorded multiple hits in five of his last eight games.
