3-Team MLB Powerhouse Trifecta – Wednesday!

09/30 07:05 PM EST MLB (967) TORONTO BLUE JAYS VS (968) BALTIMORE ORIOLES

Take: (967) 5-Star Division Dominator: Toronto.
Baltimore’s offense has hit the skids and Toronto is in town with the top offense in baseball. Baltimore starter Kevin Gausman (4.49 ERA, 3-7) is no ace, winding down a lost season — like his team. The Orioles are 1-7 in Gausman’s last 8 starts vs. a team with a winning record. Gausman allowed five runs on five hits, walking three and striking out five over five-plus innings of a 7-0 loss to Boston on Friday night. The Blue Jays are 40-14 in their last 54 overall, including 15-6 on the road. R.A. Dickey is throwing well, allowing 2 runs or less in 4 of his last 5 starts. Dickey allowed two runs on four hits, he did not walk a batter and struck out two over seven innings of a 5-3 win against Tampa Bay on Friday night. He has now turned in quality starts in five of his last six outings and the team is 11-2 his last 13 starts.
Play Toronto.

09/30 08:10 PM EST MLB (975) KANSAS CITY ROYALS VS (976) CHICAGO WHITE SOX

Take: (975) KANSAS CITY ROYALS
Reason: Kansas City is on the road but with a top 7 offense with speed and power. Starter Edinson Volquez (13-9) has had a fine campaign allowing 3 runs or less in 3 of his last 4 starts. Volquez has been consistent all year and has owned the White Sox with a 1.67 ERA in 27 innings against them this season. The Royals are 19-8 in Volquez’s last 27 starts, 14-4 with 4 days of rest. Chicago is a terrible offensive team, 27th in runs scored. Jose Quintana has a losing record overall and is 2-5 at home. Opponents have hit .277 off him in 2015. Chicago is 18-37 when Quintana starts vs. a team with a winning record. The White Sox are 3-9 in their last 12 home games vs. a right-handed starter. The Royals are also 19-7 in the last 26 meetings in Chicago. plus 21-9 in the last 30 meetings overall, so grab the visitors.
Play Kansas City.

09/30 07:10 PM MLB (979) MIAMI MARLINS VS (980) TAMPA BAY RAYS
Take: 10-Star Diamond Total Dominator: Marlins/Rays Over the total.

Miami is a poor defensive team and heads to Tampa Bay, a tough place for pitchers. They also pick up the DH for this series and this is a low total. Starter Jarred Cosart (2-4, 4.15 ERA) walks too many batters (29 in 65 innings) which is a bad thing in a small park like this. The over is 19-7-2 in the Marlins last 28 vs. a team with a losing record. Tampa Bay has Drew Smyly going, with a 4.35 ERA at home and tne over is 5-1-1 when the Rays play interleague home games. The over is 4-1 when these teams meet, 4-0 in this park.
Play the Marlins/Rays Over the total.

NL Rivalry Game of the Month – Wednesday!

09/30 10:15 PM EST MLB (963) LOS ANGELES DODGERS VS (964) SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS

Take: (964) NL Rivalry Game of the Month: Giants.
A rivalry game out West and the Dodgers will be going to the postseason but not the Giants, so the champs have some extra incentive against their division leading rivals. The Dodgers are not a great road team and 2-9 on the road vs. a team with a winning record. Mike Bolsinger is 0-2 the last two starts allowing 12 hits and 11 runs in 8 innings. The Dodgers are 1-4 when Bolsinger faces a team with a winning record. San Francisco has a good starter going in Mike Leake and the Giants are 23-8 in their last 31 home games. The Giants are also 20-6 at home against a team with a losing road record, plus the Dodgers are 1-7 in the last eight meetings in San Francisco. Play the Giants.
