Five Things You Need to Know for Tues, Sept. 11
5 Things You Need to Know in Sports
Want to start your day off right? Looking for the most interesting events of the day and a few games to lay action on? There is a full schedule in baseball tonight as football goes later this week. Here is a brief look at the top four important matchups of the day along with a glance at future odds.
1)Tampa Bay at Baltimore Matt Moore (10-9, 3.66 ERA) vs. Jason Hammel (8-6, 3.46 ERA)
Another big series in Baltimore. The Orioles just finished splitting with the Yankees, 2-2. Now they take on Tampa Bay, who is one game behind the Orioles in the AL East races and wild card race. The Orioles are 1 game behind the Yankees for the AL East lead but the loss of OF Nick Markakis to a broken thumb could be a huge loss. Tampa Bay is 9-24-1 Under last 34 games vs. a right-handed starter. Tampa Bay opened as a -150 favorite with a total of 8.5.
2)Miami at Philadelphia, Nate Eovaldi (4-11, 4.44 ERA) vs. Roy Halladay (9-7, 3.87 ERA)
Don't look now but the Phillies are just two games below .500 (before Monday's results). Halladay isn't having a great year but is still capable of pitching a game. Miami hasn't given up as shown by their most recent performance against the Nationals, winning 2 of 3 games on the road. Miami is 6-2 last 8 in series. Philadelphia opened as a -215 favorite with a total of 8.
3)LA Dodgers at Arizona, Clayton Kershaw (12-8, 2.79 ERA) vs. Ian Kennedy (12-11, 4.39 ERA)
Kershaw is back after the Dodgers skipped his last start. Arizona is all but out of the race now but they can still be dangerous to the Dodgers as they split (2-2) with them in their last series. The Dodgers need OF Matt Kemp (shoulder) back in the lineup and he's listed as questionable for this game. Dodgers are 1-7 Under last 8 Tuesday games. The LA Dodgers opened as a -140 favorite with a total of 7.5.
4)Detroit Tigers at Chicago White Sox, Doug Fister (8-8, 3.54 ERA) vs. Jake Peavy (10-10, 3.22 ERA)
This is a huge series in the AL Central with the Tigers coming in before Monday's game as one game behind the White Sox. Considering how erratic each team is, they are probably playing for the division and the loser could be out of the playoff race. Both pitchers are capable of strong outings. Both are coming off strong performances against weak teams. Detroit is 7-20-1 Under last 28. The White Sox opened as a -110 favorite with a total of 8.5.
