The Skinny:
The trends tell the story of two teams heading in opposite directions. The Mariners are 4-18 in their last 22 road games, 0-6 in their last six games following a win and 0-11 in their last 11 when their opponent allows two runs or less in their previous game. Meanwhile, the Twins are 8-1 in their last nine vs. the American League West, 9-2 in their last 11 when their opponent scores five runs or more in their previous game and 4-1 in their last five after allowing two runs or less in their previous game. . . . Let’s try this again, this time with better odds! Masahiro Tanaka has a tougher task in his counterpart than what was on the slate for Monday with Zach Wheeler taking the mound for the Mets. Regardless, I see out outcome the same. The extra day does wonders for Tanaka, the Yankees are 11-2 in Tanaka’s last 13 starts with six days of rest. . . . Let’s play two! The Yankees are 5-1 in James Paxton’s last six starts and unbeaten in his last four home starts. It’s tough to win doubleheaders, but that’s my pick for the Subway Series in a day. . . . This is an “Are You Sure” pick simply because of the drubbing the Phillies took last night. Those ones are hard to come back from, and Jake Arrieta has not been pitching all that well. But, the Phillies are 4-1 in Arrieta’s last five starts after scoring five runs or more in their previous game, so it feels like a Phillies win. . . . This is the closest we have to a pick’em again today. And if there’s one thing the Rockies know how to do, it’s string together wins. They are 8-2 in their last 10 games following a victory. Meanwhile, the Cubs are 1-5 in Jose Quintana’s last six starts.
