The visitors turn to veteran Ryan Vogelsong (6-6, 4.19 ERA) who was shelled for four runs in Tuesday’s 5-3 loss to the Fish; Vogelsong is now just 4-4 with a ballooned 5.40 ERA on the road this season (also note that Vogelsong owns a pedestrian 4.29 ERA in all “night” games). The home side counters with Jordan Zimmermann (6-5, 3.16 ERA) who was dominating in Tuesday’s 6-1 win over the Braves, not allowing a single run over 7 2/3’s innings of work; note that Zimmermann has now given up a total of three runs over his last 22 2/3’s innings of work and he has to be feeling pretty confident that he can keep the momentum rolling today as he’s posted a highly respectable 2.39 ERA at home so far this season. Recent performance plays a part in my MLB handicapping process, I’m going to give Zimmermann the clear nod in this match-up, if you don’t mind laying some juice for a high percentage shot at a winner, then you should definitely take a second look at the NATIONALS in this one.

The Los Angeles Angels are coming into Sunday’s series-finale against the Texas Rangers looking to complete the sweep after two blow-out wins. The first two games in the series have produced a total of 23 runs, and we should be in for another high-scoring contest at Arlington tonight.

Here are my keys to the game:

1. Pitching – The Angels will hand the ball to C.J. Wilson (6-6, 3.78 ERA) who is coming off a solid outing when he held the Yankees to one run on five hits overs six innings. Wilson has been very inconsistent this season though and he’s 1-2 with a 6.59 ERA in nine career starts against the Rangers who will counter with Colby Lewis (8-3, 4.13 ERA). The 35 year old right-hander is 3-0 with a 3.57 ERA home at Arlington this year and he has a 7.90 run-support average over his last four games overall.

2. Situational – Nine of Wilson’s last 10 road-starts coming in as a favorite of -110 to -150 have gone over the total and the same is true for nine of Lewis’ last 12 starts overall.

3. X-Factor – Prince Fielder is 5-for-11 over his last three games 7-for-15 with a homer off Wilson lifetime.

Selection: This is a play on LAA@TEX to go over the total (8*)

Seattle has won four of seven on this road trip so far, and they send their ace to the mound in Oakland this afternoon. The A’s own the worst home record in the American League (17-25), and this looks like a tough spot against one of the best pitchers in the game.

Felix Hernandez will toe the slab for Seattle, and he’s coming off another stellar performance. Hernandez (10-4, 3.05 ERA) tossed six scoreless innings, surrendering just one hit in a no decision against the Angels. He’s faced the A’s twice this season, and he’s allowed five runs on 13 hits over 12 innings in those games, with Seattle winning both. He’s 5-0 with a 2.10 ERA in seven starts at Overstock Coliseum over the last three seasons.

The Athletics hand the ball to Kendall Graveman, who has had his moments as a rookie. Graveman (5-4, 3.47 ERA) tossed seven scoreless innings in a home win over Colorado his last time out. He hasn’t had much success pitching in day games though, with a record of 1-3 with a 5.14 ERA in five starts.

The A’s also own the American League’s worst bullpen, with an ERA of 4.45.

The New York Mets and the LA Dodgers will play Game 2 of this three game series at Chavez Ravine tonight, and this one is expected to be a pitcher’s duel. The Mets have only managed to score three runs while losing three of their last four games, but they managed to win the series opener upsetting Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw.

Here are my keys to the game:

1. Pitching – Zack Greinke will be on the hill for the home team, and he’s coming off an outstanding performance in his last start. Greinke (6-2, 1.58 ERA) shutout the Marlins through 7.2 innings in a 2-0 win over Miami. He’s faced the Mets three times since 2012, and he’s 2-0 with a 1.89 ERA in those games. The Mets counter with Matt Harvey, who has struggled at times this season. Harvey is 0-1 with a 5.25 ERA in two career starts against the Dodgers.

2. Mets Bats – New York ranks dead last in the major leagues in runs scored away from home (107), with a team batting average of .226.

3. X-Factor – The Mets won as an underdog last night, but they are just 4-23 in their last 27 as a dog, and they’ve lost 13 of their last 17 versus the Dodgers.

Selection: This is a play on the LA Dodgers (Free)

Milwaukee Brewers vs. Cincinnati Reds Over-Under Betting Pick from Scott Spreitzer: July 3rd 2015

BREWERS VS. REDS OVER UNDER JULY 3RD 2015

Milwaukee Brewers vs. Cincinnati Reds
Over-Under Pick: Over 8.5 runs (July 3rd 2015)

I’m recommending a play on the Over between the Brewers & Reds on Friday. Both teams have been scoring runs in the situations they’re in tonight. Milwaukee has averaged 6.6 rpg during their current five game winning streak. Meanwhile, Cincy has scored 68 runs in their last 12 home games, an average of 5.67 per contest. Both starting pitchers, Fiers & Lorenzen walk too many batters, which is one reason I believe the Milwaukee righty is a little over-valued. But instead of backing Lorenzen against a red-hot Brewer squad, we’ll back the Over in a game where I believe both teams will do their share of damage at the plate. And finally, the teams will hook-up at Great American, which is one of the 10 highest OPS ballparks in the Majors in 2015. I’m recommending a play on the Over between the Brewers & Reds on Friday. Thanks & GL! Scott Spreitzer.

Scott Spreitzer enters Friday on 54-35 & 122-82 winning baseball runs. He’ll test those numbers with his AL MATCHUP MISMATCH GAME OF THE MONTH, a side backed by combined spots on a 26-5 winning run. Make the move…grab the G.O.M. then take the books deep!
