Ukraine in Fine Form Entering Next Match

Mesut Ozil Germany Yevhen Konoplyanka Ukraine Euro 2016

Germany’s bid for a fourth European Championship and first since 1996 begins with a tough match against Ukraine Sunday in Lille. The Germans are the current World Cup holders, but qualifying to get to France might not have been as easy as expected and their opener is no walk in the park either.

Can Dubs Bounce Back In Game 4?

When it comes to breaking down Game 3, the Golden State Warriors’ Draymond Green said it succinctly. 

"We were extremely soft," Green said after practice on Thursday. "We got bullied, punked, whatever word you can find for it."

True. 

Not to take anything away from Cleveland. The Cavs executed a great game plan. Like last year when they won two games in the Finals against Golden State, they came out playing smarter, grittier defense and dictated the pace.

Slumping Royals Have Had Sox Number

The Kansas City Royals have not been very good lately. The reigning World Series champions have lost seven straight games and have not scored more than one run in their past six. Things could be looking up for the Royals when they kick off a weekend series with the Chicago White Sox Friday – a team KC has beaten in seven of their past eight meetings.

Shark Bites
  • Lorenzo Cain has a lifetime .348 batting average against Chris Sale.
  • The White Sox are 0-6 in their past six games as favorites.
  • The OVER is 7-1 in the White Sox past eight games when Chris Sale starts.

Chris Sale – who has not been his usual dominant self of late – takes to the bump for the White Sox in hopes of finally notching his 10th win of the season. Sale has given up 12 earned runs in his past three starts, which equals the same number he surrendered in his first nine starts combined.

Ian Kennedy continues to have one of the more drastic home/road splits of any starting pitcher in the MLB, with the righty posting a 4.65 ERA on the road compared to his 1.46 mark at Kauffman Stadium. Kennedy has only surrendered more than two earned runs in three outings all season, but each of those came while travelling.

Road Team Struggling In NL Central Clash

One of the most entertaining rivalries in baseball over the past several seasons has seen home field advantage play a significant role, as the road team has gone just 9-21 in the past 30 meetings between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the St. Louis Cardinals. The NL Central rivals open a three-game set in Pittsburgh on Friday.

Shark Bites
  • The Pirates are 5-0 in their past five games coming off a home loss.
  • Andrew McCutchen is 12-for-22 with four extra base hits lifetime against Michael Wacha.
  • The OVER is 10-3 in the Cardinals’ past 13 games as road underdogs.

If the Cardinals want to buck the trend Friday than they will need Michael Wacha to start picking up his play. Wacha started the season well, but has since posted a whopping 9.00 ERA while making it out of the sixth inning just once in his past five starts.

One young pitcher who is not struggling is Gerrit Cole – who takes the bump for the Pirates to open the series. Cole has posted a 2.85 ERA on the season and has only surrendered more than three earned runs once across 11 starts.

Giants Unable to Solve Kershaw

The San Francisco Giants have been utterly dumbfounded by Clayton Kershaw throughout his career – though they are certainly not the only team. Kershaw is 17-7 with a 1.60 ERA lifetime against the Giants, which includes going 9-3 with a 1.23 ERA at AT&T Park. The AL West rivals kick off a three-game set in San Francisco Friday night.

Shark Bites
  • The Giants are 8-0 in Johnny Cueto’s past eight starts.
  • The UNDER is 9-2 in the Dodgers’ past 11 games.
  • The Giants lineup has a combined career batting average of .165 against Clayton Kershaw.

The Giants will counter Kershaw with a well-rested Johnny Cueto. Cueto – who enters the start coming off six days' rest – has been fantastic this season and has only allowed four earned runs in his past six starts.

The Dodgers have had their struggles in San Francisco with a dreadful 3-11 record in their past 14 games at AT&T Park. LA has already played in San Fran this season, but ultimately lost the series 2-1 with the final two games of the set going to extra innings.
