Expect lots of offense between Rangers and Red Sox

The Rangers are 9-2 in their last 11 games

The total has gone OVER in four of Boston’s last five road games

He’s been brutal on the road this season, recording a 6.14 ERA in six appearances. He has been settling down a bit in June though. He has a 4.05 ERA in the month compared to 6.00 in May and 6.51 in April.

As for Perez, the Rangers have won six straight games with him as the starter. He’s allowed four earned runs in each of his last two starts, but received 15 combined runs of support in those games. Red Sox hitters have just 29 combined at-bats against him, and have hit .310.

Sale going for MLB leading 13th win today

The best pitching matchup on Sunday’s slate takes place today in the Windy City with Chris Sale and the White Sox hosting Marcus Stroman and the Blue Jays. Sale will be going for his fourth straight win which would extend his league lead, and he appears to be on the mound at the right time, as the White Sox are rolling.

In 92 combined at-bats, Jays hitters have a .196 average vs Sale

Chicago is 6-1 in their last seven vs Toronto

The Jays are 3-6 in their last nine games as road underdogs

Winners of six of their last seven games, Chicago is finally emerging from their slump after coming into the season hot. Sale had his way with the Blue Jays in a late April game where he allowed just one run in eight innings of work. Somewhat surprisingly, Sale 3.88 home ERA is almost double that of his 1.99 ERA on the road. He’s allowed eight home runs in seven home starts this season.

As for Stroman, his 5.23 ERA this season is enough evidence to prove he hasn’t been the ace the Jays need him to be. June has been his worst month of the season, as he’s gone 1-2 with a 7.89 ERA in four starts. In the April series vs the White Sox, he allowed four runs off six hits in a Blue Jays’ loss.

Fernandez Hopes to Add to Cubs’ Rough Patch

jose fernandez marlins mlb

The Chicago Cubs are struggling for the first time this season and will be in tough against Jose Fernandez and the Marlins today in Miami. The Cubs have lost five of their last six games — by far, their worst stretch of the season. Making things even more challenging for them today is the fact that that Fernandez does his best work at home.

Fernandez has never pitched against the Cubs.

The Cubs are 1-4 in their last five games in Miami.

In 123 combined at-bats against Hammel, Marlins hitters have a .285 average.

So far this season, Fernandez is 6-1 with a 1.78 ERA and 76 K’s in 50.2 innings pitched at Marlins Park. Adding the Cubs’ recent struggles into the mix makes the Marlins the favorite today, opening the day at -152. Miami is 7-3 in their last 10 games as a home favorite.

The Cubs will counter with Jason Hammel who brings a 2.39 road ERA into the game. He’s likely not looking forward to facing Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton, who has a career .400 average against him. Coming in today at +142, the Cubs are 3-6 in their last nine games as road underdogs.
