Baseball Service Picks for Wednesday

Re: Baseball Service Picks for Wednesday

Guaranteed Pick: Larry Ness

Game: Milwaukee Brewers at Pittsburgh Pirates Sep 12 2007 12:35PM
Prediction: Pittsburgh Pirates
Reason: Milwaukee (74-70) defeated Pittsburgh 6-1 on Tuesday night and the victory, combined with Chicago's 5-4 loss in 11 innings to Houston, moved the Brewers one game ahead of the Cubs in the division race. However, for Milwaukee to increase its division lead, it will need to build off only its 20th win in 61 games all-time at Pittsburgh's PNC Park since it opened in 2001. Dave Bush (11-10, 5.25 ERA) will be making his 100th career start and he sure needs to forget about his 99th! He faced 12 batters in one-plus inning and was ripped for eight runs and nine hits in an 11-4 loss last Friday at Cincinnati. The Brewers were 4-13 in Bush's 17 road starts last year (5.38) and he's struggled again away from home in '07, posting a 6.36 ERA while allowing 102 hits in 75 innings (team is 6-8). Tom Gorzelanny of Pittsburgh is 14-7 with a 3.48 ERA this year but the trouble has been in his no-decisions. The Pirates have lost ALL seven! However, that hasn't been a problem lately, as he owns a decision in SIX of his last seven outings, going 5-1 with a 3.27 ERA while allowing two runs or less in four of them. Milwaukee has gone 21-39 in its last 60 road games and for the entire year, is minus-$1,460 on the road (only the Astros have lost more in away games TY!). What's more, the Brewers are also just 2-7 (minus-$600) when facing a left-handed starter in road day games. Daytime Delight on the Pit Pirates.

Chuck Franklin Wednesday Plays:

1500♦ NY YANKEES w/MUSSINA over Toronto w/McGowan
I gave you a 1500♦ winner with the Yankees last night, and for all the same reasons I'm riding them again tonight. The Bronx Bombers are tearing it up right now, and their surging momentum will carry them right through another victory in Toronto tonight. Their offense is firing on all cylinders; when A-Rod isn't hitting homers then Giambi and Posada are. Tonight Mike Mussina will take a trip to the mound for the Yankees, who are 4-1 in his last five starts as the listed favorite. Mussina has an incredibel 21-11 career record vs. the Blue Jays. Toronto will counter with Dustin McGowan, who is having a decent season but the Blue Jays have lost four of his last five starts as the listed dog. He will be no match for these fired up Yankees, who have won four of the last five games in Toronto.

1500♦ NY METS w/MAINE over Atlanta w/Smoltz
I respect John Smoltz and give him all the credit this veteran ace for the Atlanta Braves deserves, but I am taking the Mets at home tonight with John Maine on the mound. Smoltz is coming off a dominant start vs. the Nationals, in which he nearly pulled off the no-hitter. But the Mets are a much better team than the Nats, and the Braves are only 1-6 in Smoltz's last 7 starts vs. a better than .500 team. Also, the Braves have won only seven of his last 22 games as the listed underdog. The surging Mets have won eight of their last ten games, and with the 14-9 John Maine heading to the mound for them tonight I expect to see another win. Take the Mets at Shea Stadium in this one.

Always specify pitchers as listed
