MLB: Streaks, Tips, Notes

Toronto Blue Jays at Texas Rangers

The Texas Rangers try to halt a four game skid, the Toronto Blue Jays try to extend a three game winning streak when the clubs continue their four game set at Rangers Park. Texas has Josh Lindblom heading to the hill for the third time after getting a no-decision in Rangers' win over Cleveland Monday night. The hurler is 0-1 with a 5.91 ERA in his two starts giving up 7 runs over 10.2 innings of work. Toronto Blue Jays are pulling a pitching Switch-A-Roo here. Josh Johnson originally scheduled to start Saturday is being pushed back to Monday because of a blister problem. R.A. Dickey (5-8, 5.11 ERA) scheduled for Sunday will make his 15th start on Saturday. Dickey out of the loss column spanked for 10 hits, 2 yard-ball, 7 runs in five innings last time out has now surrendered 6 or more runs in three of his last four trips to the mound. The Rangers should bounce-back here as they're 3-0 this season after losing the first two of a series, 3-0 after being blanked the previous night, 4-0 at home after a poor hitting performance (=<5 hits). Stay home with Rangers knowing Jays are 0-3 after winning first two of a series, 1-5 on the road with their knuckler.

Weather: Sunny skies and temperatures in the mid-80s.

Probable starters: Giants RH Chad Gaudin (2-1, 2.32 ERA) vs. Braves LH Mike Minor (8-2, 2.44)

Gaudin bounced between the bullpen and the rotation early in his career but had not made a start since 2009 before stepping up with back-to-back quality starts this month. Minor has not allowed more than two earned runs in his last seven outings and has recorded eight straight quality starts. The Giants are 6-1 in their last seven vs. National League East.

St. Louis Cardinals at Miami Marlins (+174, 7.5)

Weather: Retractable roof

Chicago White Sox at Houston Astros (+126, 8)

Weather: Retractable roof

Danks is coming off a dominant outing on June 8, when he held the Oakland Athletics to one run and three hits over eight innings while retiring the final 21 batters he faced. Harrell has won only one of his last eight starts despite yielding fewer than two earned runs four times in that span. White Sox are 1-10 in their last 11 road games.

New York Yankees at Los Angeles Angels (-118, 8)

Weather: Sunny skies and temperatures in the low-70s. Wind will blow out to right field at nine mph.

Probable starters: Yankees RH David Phelps (4-3, 3.90 ERA) vs. Angels RH Tommy Hanson (3-2, 4.12)

Phelps is coming off back-to-back impressive outings after being tagged for five runs while retiring just one batter on May 29 against the New York Mets.

The Mariners are 17-6 in Hernandez's last 23 starts vs. the Athletics.


Washington Nationals at Cleveland Indians (+114, 8)

Weather: Skies will be cloudy and temperatures will be in the low-70s.

Probable starters: Nationals RH Jordan Zimmermann (9-3, 2.00 ERA) vs. Indians LH Scott Kazmir (3-4, 5.33)

After allowing a season-high seven runs in his final outing in May, Zimmermann has yet to surrender an earned run in two June starts. Kazmir will make his first career start against Washington, one of five teams he has never faced. The Nationals are 5-1 in their last 6 games vs. a left-handed starter.
