St. Louis at Atlanta - 3:05 p.m. ET (Game 2/3)
Teams Starting Pitchers Team Record (Away/Home) Current Form
St. Louis Cardinals J. Kelly (1-3, 3.88) 62-38 (30-21) 4-1 L5
Atlanta Braves J. Teherán (7-5, 3.25) 58-45 (32-15) 3-3 L6

Betting Notes

-- Atlanta beat St. Louis on Friday 4-1, which was the first meeting between the teams this season. In 2012, the Braves won five of seven against the Cardinals, including two of three at home.

-- The loss snapped a four-game winning streak for the Cardinals.

-- St. Louis will send Joe Kelly to the hill, who has started three games this season. The team has gone 2-1 with him on the mound.

-- The Braves counter with Julio Teheran and they haven’t won back-to-back games with him on the mound since May 9. Based on that trend and knowing the Braves won on Monday with Teheran starting, you would assume the Cards are the look.

-- Atlanta has lost Teheran’s last two starts at home but it is still 6-3 overall. The ‘under’ has gone 7-2 in Teheran’s home starts.

-- Atlanta is 17-16 in afternoon games, while St. Louis boasts a NL-best record of 21-11 in the daytime.
N.Y. Mets at Washington - 3:05 p.m. ET (Game 3/4)
Teams Starting Pitchers Team Record (Away/Home) Current Form
New York Mets D. Gee (7-7, 4.07) 46-54 (25-24) 7-4 L11 Road
Washington Nationals D. Haren (4-11, 5.79) 50-54 (29-25) 2-7 L9

Betting Notes

-- The two teams split a double-header yesterday with the Mets taking Game 1 (11-0) and the Nationals stealing Game 2 (2-1). The ‘under’ should’ve cashed in both games but New York exploded for six runs in the top of the ninth in its afternoon victory.

-- Including Friday’s outcomes, the two teams have split their 10 games this season. The ‘over’ has gone 6-4.

-- New York has gone 5-4 since the All-Star break. Washington has produced a 2-7 record since the break, which started with six straight losses, all at home too. The offense has been held to two runs or less in seven of the nine games.

-- The Mets have gone 10-10 overall with Dillon Gee on the mound and 1-1 since the All-Star break, with the ‘under’ cashing in both games. However, Gee is 3-0 versus the Nationals this season in three starts compiling a 0.96 ERA.

-- Washington hasn’t had any success with Dan Haren, going 4-14 in 18 starts and that includes a streak of 11 straight setbacks. During this 11-game skid, the Nationals have been held to three runs or less eight times. Haren has gone 2-2 in afternoon battles this season.

-- Even though the pitching matchup looks like a mismatch, the Nationals are listed as home favorites (-145) in this game.
L.A. Angels at Oakland - 3:05 p.m. ET (Game 3/4)
Teams Starting Pitchers Team Record (Away/Home) Current Form
Los Angeles Angels G. Richards (2-4, 4.66) 48-53 (21-25) 3-1 L4 OVER
Oakland Athletics T. Milone (8-8, 4.18) 60-43 (31-16) 4-2 L6

Betting Notes

-- Los Angeles took the opener in this series on Thursday with an 8-4 win while Oakland rebounded with a 6-4 win last night. Since the Athletics won the first four meetings of the season in April, the Angels have captured four of the last six. The ‘over’ has gone 7-3 in the 10 encounters.

-- L.A. and Oakland have both gone 4-4 since the All-Star break. The Angels are 11 games behind Oakland and tied for fourth place with Seattle in the American League West.

-- Oakland will start lefthander Tom Milone, who has struggled in daytime (1-4) games this season. Also, MIlone has gone 1-2 with a 7.80 ERA in his last three starts versus the Angels.

-- Los Angeles is 10-14 against southpaws this season.

-- The Angels are handing the ball to Garrett Richards today, who hasn’t stared since April. Richards was tagged by Oakland for eight hits and seven runs in a 10-6 loss at home on Apr. 30.

-- The Angels (18-12) have been better in the daytime than the Athletics (20-19) this season.
