MLB FREE PICK: Take Oakland. According to latest MLB trends, Oakland is: 22-7 last 29 interleague games,  39-19 last 58 vs. National League Central and 7-1 in Milone's last 8 starts as an underdog. Pittsburgh is: 1-4 last 5 home games and 13-33 last 46 vs. American League West.

Oakland has won 11 straight in this series including the first two games of this series by 2-1 scores. The A's have won three straight and are going for the road sweep against a Pittsburgh team that is struggling to score runs. The Pirates are hitting just .232 against and scoring 3.9 runs per game against left-handed pitching. They take on lefty Tom Milone, who was pitching one of his best games of the season before giving up three runs in the ninth inning against the Royals. He was shutting them out through eight innings. Milone did stumble against Texas (6 runs), Cincinnati (3 runs in 4 2/3 innings) and St. Louis (4 earned runs) who have much better lineups than the Pirates. While Pittsburgh struggles against lefties, Oakland is hitting .242, which is just four points less than they hit against right-handers. But they are averaging 4.51 runs per game. Francisco Liriano (8-3, 2.20 ERA) has pitched well but has struggled against Oakland in his career and is 3-4, posting a 4.59 ERA in 14 games (12 starts). Oakland is a good value as a dog playing well against a team struggling to score runs as they've put up just six in their last four games.

MLB FREE PICK: OAKLAND A'S +123
