    Analysis:

    Anyone who hasn't paid attention to the MLB standings since the start of June might be surprised if they picked up the sports page this morning and found the Mets in a wild card spot in the NL. Wins in five straight and 25 of 35 can accomplish such things, and there's still another game to go with the hapless Rockies before the All-Star break. What a time to come back, must be thinking Colorado starter German Marquez, out almost 15 months while recovering from Tommy John surgery (why the rush?). Hard to see him outpitching the Mets' hot Jose Quintana, who hasn't allowed a run in his last two starts. Play Mats on Run Line

    Analysis:

    Even with Carlos Rodon struggling recently on the Yankees side, we are hard-pressed to explain why the Orioles are made any sort of a favorite at all as they are in the throes of a five-game slump. Not just any five-game slump, this one has featured only four runs total across that span, and the Yanks can take over first place in the AL East into the All-Star break with another win on Sunday to sweep this series. Note how Dean Kremer struggled for the Birds (seven runs, five earned, and seven hits thru just 4 IP) in his second start back from the DL last Tuesday vs. the Cubs. Play Yankees on Money Line

    Analysis:

    Everything worked again for the Mets last night except the Run Line, as a 7-2 lead became 7-6. But it was another win, four of those in a row, and 24 of 34, as the Mets again wake up this morning 9in an NL wild card place with two more games still to go at Citi Field vs. the lowly Rockies this weekend. Today they face Colorado's Ryan Feltner, at 1-8 and the poster child for pitching in bad luck, but that is part and parcel for the Rocks this season. Note Christian Scott hasn't pitched too badly the past couple of weeks for the Mets, allowing 2 or fewer runs in three of his last four starts. Play Mets on RL

    Analysis:

    The Tigers are kicking themselves for blowing a 3-0 lead on Friday, but the visiting Dodgers still look like they simply need to get to the All-Star break without taking any more casualties. Dave Roberts and his depleted pitching staff have little choice but to send rookie Justin Wrobleski back to the mound despite him getting shelled in his debut last Sunday by the Brewers in a 9-2 loss. Meanwhile, AJ Hinch might have a better chance on the Detroit side with recently impressive Keider Montero, who's allowed just 2 runs and 9 hits across 12 2/3 IP in his last two starts. Play Tigers on Money Line

    Analysis:

    We get the hype with Garrett Crochet, who has been a pleasant surprise for the Chisox all season and worthy to be on the deadline shopping list of many contending teams who might understandingly covet his 3.08 ERA (and 2.38 ERA at home). For tonight, however, remember he's still on the Chisox, who have lost his last four starts mainly because they don't score runs, which is a prime reason they're only 27-68 entering tonight. Here's a chance for the Pirates to generate some momentum into the All-Star break, and ex-Mariner Marco Gonzales pitched well (2.65 ERA) in three April starts before going down with a forearm strain The Pittsburgh bullpen is capable of bringing this one home in Chicago. Play Pirates on Money Line

    Analysis:

    If you went on a worldwide cruise at the start of June, and couldn't access any MLB info for the next six weeks, and returned this morning to find out the Mets were actually sitting in an NL wild card spot, you might think you were in some sort of alternative universe. But the Mets have indeed roared to life, and threaten to take more momentum into the All-Star break with the lowly Rockies into Citi Field this weekend. Sean Manaea has been NY's sharpest pitcher lately, with a 1.00 ERA as the Mets have won in his last three starts. Meanwhile, the Rocks close their eyes and risk Tanner Gordon (7.11 ERA) making his second MLB start. Play Mets on Run Line

    Analysis:

    After being swept in Philadelphia, the Dodgers probably wish the All-Star break would begin right now rather than being forced into Detroit to play a weekend set vs. the revived Tigers. Especially as LA's pitching staff is depleted by injury and James Paxton (on the round tonight) is the only veteran remaining in the rotation. Though not sure that's good news as Paxton has struggled on the road (5.36 ERA away). Worse yet tonight for the Blue is having to go against the Tigers' AL Cy Young contender Tarik Skubal, who is back on course and has posted a 1.80 ERA in his last three starts. Play Tigers on Run Line

    Analysis:

    The next time Paul Skenes pitches in a game after today will likely be in Arlington for Tuesday's All-Star Game, where we are quite sure he will be featured for at least an inning. Skenes has proven as good as advertised with his 2.12 ERA thru ten starts, and now he's working into the 8th inning in recent outings. Opponent scorelines are telling; Skenes has only allowed five runs across his last five starts, but the flip side is the Pirates' offense, save for a couple of unexpected explosions in recent weeks, remains decidedly pedestrian. Milwaukee's recently-added Aaron Civale likely hands off a close, low-scoring game to his bullpen, and another Skenes-influenced scoreline stays low this afternoon in Brew Town. Play Pirates-Brewers "Under"

    Analysis:

    Consider that a speed bump last night for the Reds, who still rallied to almost steal the win from the Rockies. But Cincy can make it 3 of 4 in this midweek set with a win in this matinee, which looks promising after scoring 23 runs in the first three games. Speaking of promising, Hunter Greene looked as much in his last start on Saturday, spinning seven innings off three-hit, shutout ball at the Tigers. Never a problem to buck Colorado, and note Austin Gomber's subpar 5.44 road ERA this season. Play Reds on Run Line

    Analysis:

    It didn't quite work on the Run Line last night for Texas but it was another win, a fifth in a row, as the Rangers finally seem ready to take flight. Michael Lorenzen returns to Anaheim after making the switch from reliever to starter for the Halos in 2022, and he has consistently given Bruce Bochy five or six serviceable innings, and an ERA at 2.96 since the start of May. He's also off of five shutout innings, allowing one hit, in his last start on July 3 vs. the Rays. Meanwhile, the Angels are slumping again, losing eight of nine, and Griffin Canning struggling on the mound with a 6.97 ERA his last two starts. Play Rangers on Run Line

    Check out these Bosox, who suddenly have the look of Spain at the Euros as they have roared from a 30-31, sub-.500 mark on June 4 to a current AL wild card position by winning 20 of their last 29. No hangover from the series win at Yankee Stadium on the weekend when banging out 12 runs last night vs. the A's, and Nick Pivetta off of seven shutout innings, allowing just one hit, vs. the Marlins last Thursday. Note Oakland's JP Sears isn't far removed from 7.94 ERA in June. Play Red Sox on Run Line

    Analysis:

    We suppose there's a risk here with the Phils if Christopher Sanchez looks anything remotely like his last effort on 4th of July vs the Cubs when allowing seven runs on seven hits, plus three walks, in just four innings of work and taking a loss in a 10-2 beatdown. At home this season, however, Sanchez has been almost untouchable, with a 5-1 mark and 1.35 ERA, and the Phils looked menacing again at the plate in last night's 10-1 win with Kyle Schwarber and Bryce Harper back to active duty. Gavin Stone also off of a rough start for the Dodgers, allowing four runs and seven hits (plus three walks) in a loss to the D-backs. Play Phillies on Run Line

    Analysis:

    This hardly shapes up as a pitching duel tonight at Oracle Park, so we feint incredulity at this "total" of 7.5 runs. Neither of these starting pitchers has impressed, which is to say the least regarding SF's Blake Snell, as Giants fans hope the groin strain that has shelved him for the past month was the reason for his 9.51 ERA this season. Yusei Kikuchi has not been not much better on the Toronto side, especially his last eight starts in which he has posted a 6.50 ERA. Clearing 7.5 runs looks very likely in this matchup by the Bay Bridge tonight. Play Blue Jays-Giants "Over"

    Analysis:

    It is hard to imagine Padres starter Adam Mazur sticking with the big club much longer, especially after his latest effort in which he allowed four runs and seven hits in just 4 IP last Wednesday at Texas. That has upped ERA to 7.52 since his call-up in early June. Yes, it's been a ragged couple of weeks for the Mariners, but they still lead the AL West, and Logan Gilbert has been rather effective away from home, as his 2.75 ERA as a visitor would suggest.

    Analysis:

    The return to active duty for Dean Kremer was an unquestioned success for the O's last week in Seattle, as Kremer spun five shutout innings while allowing only two hits in a 4-1 win over the Mariners, as the Birds would go on to complete another successful road trip. Meanwhile, though the Cubs did recover to win a series vs. the fading Angels on the weekend, though note their extended decline since late May. Late change on the mound for Chicago with Jameson Taillon replacing Shota Imanaga, but the Cubs have still lost in seven of Taillon's last ten starts. Play Orioles on Run Line
