Eckel's Saturday Baseball Picks: Braves vs Phillies, Angels vs Rangers, Rockies vs Mariners, with Acuna and Rendon to go deep

The Braves vs. Phillies are the earliest game, starting at 6:05 pm EDT.

Friday night was tough.

The Braves got rained out in Philly and that was the best news of the night.

The Yankees lost 1-0 to Tampa Bay; and the Astros lost 3-2 in 13 innings to Oakland.

Oh well, what do you do after an 0-for-2 night, you get back in the bettor’s box.

Here are some Saturday selections.

Atlanta Braves at Philadelphia Phillies, 6:05 p.m.

Pitchers: Kyle Wright vs. Jake Arrieta

Odds: Braves -110; Phillies -110

Los Angeles Angels at Texas Rangers, 7:05 p.m.

Pitchers: Patrick Sandoval vs. Kolby Allard

Odds: Angels -135; Rangers +125

Colorado Rockies at Seattle Mariners, 9:10 p.m.

Pitchers: Ryan Castellani vs. Nick Margevicius

Odds: Rockies +105; Mariners -115

The Cycle

Single: Let’s go back to the Braves and top prospect Kyle Wright against the Phillies, who moved Arrieta ahead of Vince Velasquez in the rotation.

Double: The Angels/Rangers game features a match-up of former Orange County high school rivals in Sandoval and Allard. Let’s go with Sandoval and the Angels on the road.

Triple: The Rockies have been an early surprise and send Castellani, who was a star in the Arizona Fall League against the Mariners and Margevicus, who was 0-2 with a 16.55 ERA against Colorado last year. Take the Rockies.

Home Run: Look for Atlanta’s Ronald Acuna and the Angels’ Anthony Rendon to homer Saturday night.
