We are smelling a Jake Arrieta gem this afternoon after his less-than-stellar outing at Chavez Ravine Friday (5 innings, 10 hits, 5 earned runs). It will be the righthander’s fourth straight start on the road, and the plane will be warming on the tarmac, so he will be looking to get the boys out of California ASAP.
If the offense can show anything near the same signs of life it did Tuesday night, this should be no problem.
And since the NBA kicks up again, let’s try a Phillies/Kyle Lowry parlay, something with a little more meat than usual . . .
