SUNDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Re: SUNDAY SERVICE PLAYS

JEFF BENTON

Very quietly, Los Angeles has assumed the best team in baseball mantle with a 64-39 record, which includes a major-league-best 33-18 road mark after taking the first two games of this series. Today, the Halos hand the ball to All-Star right-hander Ervin Santana, who continues to prove that he's turned the corner on his big-league career  he's now 11-4 with a 3.37 ERA in 2008, but most impressively, he's 8-1 with a 3.44 ERA on the road. This from a guy who was one of THE worst road starters in all of baseball the past two seasons.

On the flip side, there's Baltimore left-hander Garrett Olson, who has been a train wreck in his last four starts, going 0-4 with a 10.53 ERA (23 earned runs allowed in 19 2/3 innings). Three of those outings against the Blue Jays, Tigers and Royals came at home. Now Olson runs up against an Angels offense that's just tattooing left-handers right now (.333 batting average over the past 10 games).

Throw in the fact that Los Angeles is 11-3 in this last 14 meetings in this rivalry and 3-0 in Santana's last three starts against the O's, and there's no doubt the Angels are a strong play and should roll to a multi-run win.

5♦ L.A. ANGELS -1 1/2 runs

New York comes into this game as a huge dog, but were a slight dog yesterday and destroyed the Sox 10-3. Consider that through the first seven meetings between these teams Boston was 5-2 against New York. But since the Yankees lost 6-4 to the Sox on July 4, New York is 4-0 their last four meetings against Boston.New York also comes into this game on an eight-game winning streak.The Yankees will make it nine in a row and five in a row over the Sox.Go with New York on the road tonight.

MATT RIVERS

I do not expect Rick Vandenhurk to look as good as he did in that unreal last start against the Braves but the Dutchman at least should be somewhat confident after that gem and who is Jason Marquis to be laying such a price!?!?!? The Cubs are obviously the better team when compared to the Marlins but the fish are not bad at all with a total star in Ramirez along with solid bats including Willingham, Jacobs, Uggla, Hermida and a few others. Florida continues to stick around in the NL East despite everybody continually thinking they are going to fade away. The fish have not floundered yet this season overall and have a great shot to win this game at Wrigley. Lee, Ramirez, Soriano, Fukudome and the Cubbies are very tough at Wrigley and do win this game more times than not but not at the rate that the oddsmakers seem to believe. Marquis does not scare me at all and in the end could get smacked around here by this Florida offense for sure. We may lose here but we may win and that's certainly good enough for me with this takeback.

FLORIDA MARLINS

Re: SUNDAY SERVICE PLAYS

GINA

Los Angeles Angels at Baltimore Orioles

The hot Angels are 9-1 in their last ten games and have won six of the last seven games versus the Orioles, five of the last six in Baltimore. The Orioles have lost 14 of their last 18 games.

Los Angeles will send Ervin Santana (11-4, 3.37 ERA) to the hill. The right-hander is 2-1 with a 3.86 ERA in his last three starts, 8-1 with a 3.44 ERA in his last 12 on the road. Santana is 1-1 with a 3.86 ERA in five career starts against the Orioles.

Baltimore counters with Garrett Olson (6-5, 6.11). The rookie lefthander is 0-2 with a 11.30 ERA in his last three starts, just 1-4 with a 8.62 ERA in his last eight.

Go with Angels to hand the struggling Orioles their sixth straight defeat.

Los Angeles Angels -150

Mr A

Arizona Diamondbacks at San Francisco Giants

The Diamondbacks have won six of the last nine meetings versus the Giants and the last four in San Francisco.

Arizona's Randy Johnson (7-7, 4.89) is 3-0 with a 2.33 ERA in his last three starts.

San Francisco's Barry Zito (5-12, 5.56 ERA) is 2-0 with a 3.50 ERA in his last three starts.

Look for Arizona hot bats to pound the struggling Giants and grab a three-game sweep at AT&T Park. San Francisco has lost 11 of their last 15 games and dropped four of lefty Barry Zito's last five starts versus the Diamondbacks.

Arizona Diamondbacks -145

Jeff Alexander

1 Unit on NY Mets -130

The Cards are struggling and the Mets are rolling so we won't hesitate to pull the trigger on the Mets at home for a decent price. The Cardinals are 0-5 in their last 5 overall and 0-7 in their last 7 vs. a team with a winning record. The Mets are 10-1 in their last 11 home games, 16-5 in their last 21 overall, and 6-0 in their last 6 games as a home favorite of -110 to -150. Take New York.

Re: SUNDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Larry Ness 20* AL Game of the Month

The Rangers entered their three-game series with Oakland a half-game behind the A's in the AL West but behind Josh Hamilton (two-run HR and a double on Friday plus a three-run HR on Saturday), have moved 1 1/2 games ahead of Oakland (and to within 5 1/2 games of Boston in the wild card race) with 14-6 and 9-4 wins (reached Duchscherer for nine hits and eight ERS in six IP). The Rangers, who have taken EIGHT of 11 games from the A's this season, will go for the three-game sweep this afternoon, against an Oakland team which has lost four straight and NINE of 10. So why am I playing Oakland? Here's why. Let's not forget that the Rangers own the AL's worst team ERA (5.20) or that the team has allowed an average of 5.87 RPG through its 104 games (54-50) this season. Rookie Eric Hurley (1-1, 3.57 ERA) comes off the DL today to make his first start since June 29. The 22-year-old right-hander has been on the DL since July 8 with a strained left hamstring and does have four June starts under his belt. However, let's note that his ERA in his two home starts was 2.53 but 4.50 in his two road starts. He'll take on an Oakland team (52-51) in this one which is in danger of falling to .500 for the first time since April 8. While the A's are just barely over .500 vs right-handed starters this season, Hurley is catching them in their best situation in this game. The A's are a terrific 8-2 in home day games vs righties, averaging 4.9 RPG. Conversely, Oakland lefty Dana Eveland is catching the Rangers in one of their worst situations. Texas does lead the majors in team batting average (.280) and runs scored (5.58 per) but the Rangers are an unimpressive 12-20 vs left-handed starters in '08, including a poor 5-12 mark on the road (averaging just 3.2 RPG!). Eveland has really been good for the A's this year (came from Arizona in the Haren trade). His record may be just 7-7 with a 3.65 ERA in 20 starts (team is 10-10) but he's allowed more than three runs in just THREE of his 20 starts (read that slowly!). Few pitchers can make that claim in '08! The A's are struggling right now but the game situations plus the pitching matchup (or mismatch!) makes them the play in this one.

AL Game of the Month 20* Oak A's.

VEGAS EXPERTS

Washington Nationals at Los Angeles Dodgers

Washington is just playing terrible baseball right now having lost five straight. Last night's 6-0 setback marked the second time in three games that the Nats were shutout, a phenomenon that's all too familiar for this club as the rank at the bottom of MLB in runs scored per game (3.7). Furthermore, they are 0-8 in their last eight visits here and starter Jason Bergmann has a 2-12 TSR.

Play on: LA Dodgers

Re: SUNDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Mike Anthony

San Diego Padres vs. Pittsburgh Pirates     
Play: Pittsburgh Pirates   
 
The Pirates conclude their series with the Pirates in Pittsburgh Sunday afternoon when Paul Maholm takes on Jake Peavy and the Padres. A quick check of the numbers shows Maholm with an 8-2 mark at home with a 3.33 ERA this season while Peavy is 3-5 away with 4.53 ERA. Maholm's home ERA is more than a full run better than his road ERA while Peavy's road ERA is more than 3 runs higher than his home ERA. This year the home teams have a major advantage with all the young players in the league. With Maholm 4-1 in days starts this season, look for Pittsburgh to surprise San Diego here this afternoon and get the win for us.
