We split Monday’s plays in an up and down emotional day. We lose game 1 with the Yankees under; a game which had 6 runs scored in the first 3 and a half innings, only to result in 5 and a half shutout innings after that. We make amends for it with a late come from behind victory in Chicago. Asdrubal Cabrera has hopefully broke out of his early season woes (he’s on my fantasy team) with a game winning 2 out 2 run single in the top of the 8th to go up 3-2. Just one play for Tuesday.
1 Unit – Cleveland at Chi White Sox (Under 8)
We go back to the Cleveland/Chicago series for a second consecutive day. These two teams have met 4 times so far this year, hitting 3 of 4 on the under (covering by 3.5, 4, and 6.5 runs). Chicago has been struggling to score runs of late averaging less than 2 runs per game in their last 4. Cleveland seems to be scoring in bunches. They’ve scored 3 or less in 3 of their last 5 with the other two coming against Houston Astros pitching (which isn’t saying much considering I saw a stat today in which I believe no starter has made it passed the 6th inning for them in like their last 7 games).
Both young pitchers have started off their 2013 campaign hot as well. Even with a 1-2 record, Zach McAllister bolsters a 3.12 ERA. He is however 2-0 in 4 starts against the Sox with a 2.66 ERA. In his young career, he’s historically pitched much better on the road vs at hime with a split ERA of 3.30 away to 4.98 at home. Quintana is coming off of 2 straight with no earned runs allowed (one was against Cleveland last week). He’s got a 2.55 ERA with one win on the year. Both have favorable batter/pitcher heads up matchups. I’d prefer this one at 8.5, but it’s never going to get there. If you’re not fast enough in betting this one, it may drop to 7.5 by game time.
