Whenever the Philadelphia Phillies paid Bryce Harper $330 Million bucks in the offseasonthey did it because they needed to bring in a player that could win them a game all by himself. Bryce got his chance last night as he came up with the bases loaded at the bottom of the ninth inning, with his Phillies team trailing by two runs. And he did not disappoint as he smashed a moonshot, top decker, grand slam home run, to walk the game off for the Phillies.
The blast completed an unlikely comeback that saw the Phillies hit the bottom of the ninth down 5-1. They won the game 7-5. Even the late-game heroics also pushed the sport over the total of nine and a half an hour, and we picked up our second straight winning bet. It had been the definition of a back-door cover!
The match itself went a lot like I thought it’d as Drew Smyly was awful for Philly. I asked why they even traded for a man like Smyly that has been having such a bad year, and he got banged up last night, giving up five runs on seven hits in just five innings of work. He did everything he had to push the match to the over, but Cubs starter Yu Darvish was light outside in seven innings, allowing no runs.
It looked as if we were planning to take a hard-luck loss, until Harper and the remainder of the Phillies battered the Cubs bullpen for seven runs in the final two innings. We have a little blessed late in the match, but that is why a wager on the above is really exciting, you are never from the game until the last pitch is chucked! For the current wager, we’ll head to the Bronx where the Yankees host the Cleveland Indians.
The Cleveland Indians are in New York City Friday for game two of a four-game series with the Yankees. The Indians burst for a whopping nineteen runs in game one to take the series lead. Jose Ramirez and Carlos Santana equally had several home runs, along with seven unique guys drove conducts in, led by Ramirez who had six RBI on the night.
The win was a big one for Cleveland as they’re in a tight race with the Minnesota Twins for the American League Central Division title. With the win last night, the Indians are actually just a half a game back of Minnesota for first location. The Indians are 10-5 in the month of August.
For New Yorkthey are at minimal risk of providing up first place in their division, the American League East, as they maintain a nine plus a half-game lead within the Tampa Bay Rays, and also have the best record in the major leagues, tied together with the Los Angles Dodgers. The reduction proved to be a rare one for New York as they’d won half of the past fifteen games this month before getting blown out last night.
Beginning for the Yankees is Masahiro Tanaka (8-6 4.64 ERA), and for the Indians, it’s Aaron Civale (1-1 1.00 ERA). The game complete over-under is placed in ten and a half conducts. The Yankees are all -144 favorites. First pitch is scheduled for 4:05 PM PST out of Yankee Stadium in New York City.
The New York Yankees are finally receiving their lineup healthy, and you’ll be able to see the gap in the plate. Even the Yankees are leading the majors in runs scored this past month, and it’s not even that close. The Houston Astros and their juggernaut lineup have scored six fewer runs the Bronx Bombers this month, along with the third-place group, the Minnesota Twins, are a remote twenty-eight runs behind New York. The Yankees have smashed in-house runs in sixteen matches this past month, and as a team, they are hitting nearly .300 because the transaction deadline.
When you take a look at the match complete for New York, they’ve gone over nearly every match in the last few weeks. During the month of August, the Yankees and their opponents have combined for double runs in thirteen of their sixteen games. A huge part of this is their strong lineup, but New York is experimenting with a lot of young men in the bullpen, and we all watched last night that sometimes those experiments can fail.
Masahiro Tanka has struggled since the All-Star break. In his six starts as the rest, his ERA is over seven runs. In Julyhe had an ERA of nearly nine runs as he gave twenty five runs in five starts, including seven home runs. However, in spite of the fact that he has not been really good this season, the Yankees seem to find ways to win once he is on the mound. New York has won ten of his last twenty five begins.
Tanaka has allowed four runs or more in a beginning ten times this year. That includes a start a couple months back where the Boston Red Sox nailed him for twelve runs in three innings. To say the guy has been inconsistent would be a major understatement. He will still occasionally show up though. We noticed this last week when he pitched eight shutout innings against the Toronto Blue Jays. It’ll be interesting to see exactly what Tanaka brings into the park tonight because the Cleveland Indians are surely not the Toronto Blue Jays.
Aaron Civale produced his major league debut in a place start on June 22nd for Cleveland and seemed great in six innings of work. The Indians have called Civale back up here in August to aid a playoff drive, and the child was great. In both August starts since rejoining the team, Civale has pitched six innings in both games and has allowed just one run in every appearance.
I visit fireworks coming tonight! The Yankees can not stop scoring runs, and with Tanaka on the mound, with a weary bullpen that got blasted for two runs behind him, I watch the Yankees giving up a lot of runs as well. Civale has certainly been impressive in his brief stint in the big leagues, but he is about to get a rude awakening tonight. Slimming the Texas Rangers along with the Detroit Tigers will not indicate you are likely to be able to slow down these red-hot Yankees. Welcome to the series child!
This is one of the games that could turn mad like the night’s affair that watched eleven runs appear on the plank. After becoming embarrassed on their home area last night, I visit New York showing no winner for this newcomer tonight. And we all understand that Tanaka is going to give up at least a couple of runs also. So, I am going to take the over in this 1 tonight.
And shockingly, the people seems to be on the beneath, as we can get dog money on the more right today at +102. You’ve got two choices here. Simply take the above ten and a half in +102, or anticipate the below action to maintain coming, and wait for the line to adapt to ten runs at -110. Personally, I will take the additional juice since I see this one sailing way over, and that I want the greater payout over the half a run. I, however, could see a case for waiting for the line to move also. As it stands today, I’ll take the over ten and a half runs tonight in the Bronx in +102!
