Yankees at Red Sox - 4:05 PM EST

Probables: H. Kuroda (11-7, 2.33 ERA) vs. J. Lackey (7-10, 3.32 ERA)

Series recap: New York dominated Boston, 10-3 as $1.70 road underdogs on Friday, the sixth victory in the last eight games for the Yankees. The 'over' has cashed in six of the past seven games for the Bombers, while scoring double-digit runs for the third time in the last four games. Boston is riding a three-game skid, while seeing its five-game 'under' streak come to an end last night.

Pitching notes: The Yankees send out their most consistent pitcher to the mound on Saturday as the team is 5-1 in Hiroki Kuroda's last six starts. The 'under' has cashed in nine straight outings by Kuroda, including each of the past five on the highway. Kuroda beat the Red Sox as a $1.40 road underdog last month, 5-2, while the Yankees are 6-2 in his eight day starts this season.

The Red Sox are just 1-4 in John Lackey's past five trips to the hill, including a 4-3 defeat at Kansas City last Sunday. Lackey is riding an impressive 'under' stretch as well by cashing the 'under' in 11 of his last 12 starts. The Sox own a 3-1 mark in Lackey's last four outings at Fenway Park, with the lone defeat came to Kuroda and the Yankees on July 20.

Cardinals at Cubs - 4:05 PM EST

Probables: J. Kelly (3-3, 3.14 ERA) vs. T. Wood (7-9, 3.00 ERA)

Series recap:
Chicago jumped out to a 3-0 lead after one inning as the Cubs cruised past the Cardinals, 7-0 on Friday afternoon. The Cubs cashed as $1.20 home underdogs, while beating the Cardinals for the third time in the last four meetings. Interestingly enough, Chicago has beaten St. Louis in four of five series openers this season.

Pitching notes: The Cardinals have won five of Joe Kelly's six starts since entering the starting rotation in early July. The second victory in this stretch came at Wrigley Field prior to the All-Star break as a short road favorite, 3-2. Kelly hasn't pitched past the sixth inning in five of six starts, but the Cardinals are 3-0 in his three starts as a favorite.

Travis Wood has cashed the 'under' in four straight starts, while the Cubs' left-hander has lost each of his last three home outings. Chicago began the season with victories in five of Wood's first eight starts, but the Cubs are just 4-12 in his last 16 trips to the mound. The Cubs are 1-2 in Wood's three starts against the Cardinals, as the lone victory came as a home underdog back in May.

Diamondbacks at Pirates - 4:05 PM EST

Probables: T. Cahill (3-10, 4.66 ERA) vs. J. Locke (9-3, 2.43 ERA)

Series recap: Pittsburgh rebounded from a series loss at St. Louis to knock off Arizona last night, 6-2. The Pirates have won six straight games at PNC Park, while owning the second-best home record in the league (42-20). Arizona has dropped four of its last five road contests, as the D-Backs have now lost three of four meetings with the Pirates this season.

Pitching notes: The D-Backs will have Trevor Cahill back on the mound for the first time since late June when the right-hander suffered a hip contusion. Cahill's last two starts were disastrous outings, allowing 12 earned runs in 9.1 innings of work in losses at Washington and Atlanta. Arizona has lost each of Cahill's past five road outings, while losing as a $1.40 home favorite to Pittsburgh back in April.

The Pirates are 7-2 this season when Jeff Locke takes the mound following a team loss in his previous start. The southpaw hasn't fared in a decision in his last three outings, while the Pirates lost as road favorites at Colorado in his previous start, 3-2. Pittsburgh owns a 7-1 record in Locke's last eight starts at PNC Park, as the Bucs are 4-0 in his four home favorite starts.
