Wednesday Matinee Action
Braves at Mets - 1:10 PM EST

Probables: A. Wood (2-2, 2.61 ERA) vs. J. Niese (5-6, 4.25 ERA)

Series recap: The Mets held off the Braves, 5-3 last night as $1.40 home underdogs, while the game finished 'over' the total of 7. New York has now won six of the past nine meetings with Atlanta, including three of the past four at Citi Field.

Pitcher notes: Since losing at New York last month as a short favorite, Alex Wood has turned in four consecutive quality starts for the Braves (3-1). Atlanta has drilled the 'under' in each of his last three outings, while Wood faces a Mets' squad that is 0-5 in their last five games against a left-handed starter.

Jon Niese makes his first start at Citi Field since mid-June, as the Mets have won each of his previous two outings as a road underdog at Arizona and San Diego. New York owns a dreadful 1-6 record in Niese's last seven home starts, as the Mets have scored just two runs or less six times in this stretch.

Cardinals at Brewers - 2:10 PM EST

Probables: J. Westbrook (7-8, 4.35 ERA) vs. T. Gorzelanny (3-4, 2.95 ERA)

Series recap:
After the Cardinals held off the Brewers in Monday's series opener, Milwaukee rallied back from a 3-0 deficit in Tuesday's 6-3 triumph as home underdogs. The victory by the Brewers was just the first in six tries this season against the Cardinals at Miller Park.

Pitcher notes: The Cardinals haven't been a profitable venture recently with Jake Westbrook on the mound, as St. Louis has dropped his last three starts. Not included in this stretch is the nine earned runs allowed by the right-hander in relief against the Dodgers, boosting his total to 24 earned runs given up in his last four appearances (21.1 innings). St. Louis owns a dreadful 0-5 mark in Westbrook's last five road starts, with four of those defeats coming to division opponents.

Tom Gorzelanny has become a steady part of the Milwaukee rotation since early July, as the Brewers have won three of his last four starts. The 'under' has cashed in three of four outings at Miller Park, as the lone 'over' hit in his previous outing, a 7-6 walk-off victory over the Reds. Gorzelanny's last start against the Cardinals came as a member of the Nationals in 2011, a 5-0 road defeat as a $1.45 underdog.

Mariners at Athletics - 3:35 PM EST

Probables: H. Iwakuma (11-6, 2.95 ERA) vs. A.J. Griffin (10-8, 3.76 ERA)

Series recap: The A's held off the Mariners in Monday's opener, 2-1, while building a 4-0 edge after the first inning on Tuesday night. However, Seattle rallied back to stun Oakland, 7-4 to cash as $1.80 road underdogs. The M's have won three of the last five meetings at O.Co Coliseum.

Pitcher notes: The Mariners have lost three of Hisashi Iwakuma's past four outings, but won his last start at Texas as a heavy underdog, 3-1. Seattle has split four starts by Iwakuma against Oakland this season, while allowing eight earned runs in his last two outings with the A's (0-2).

Following a rough June, A.J. Griffin has rebounded nicely for Oakland as the A's are 8-2 in his last 10 trips to the mound. Since losing a 4-0 decision to Seattle on June 15, the A's own a 5-1 record in Griffin's past six home starts. The A's keep winning in Griffin's daytime starts by cashing in four of his last trips to the mound in matinee action.

Red Sox at Giants - 3:45 PM EST

Probables: F. Doubront (8-6, 3.95 ERA) vs. C. Gaudin (5-2, 3.06 ERA)

Series recap: Boston blanked San Francisco in the opener, 7-0 on Monday, but the Red Sox were tripped up last night, 3-2. The Giants rallied from a 2-0 deficit, while the game-winning run came on a bases-loaded walk in the bottom of the ninth inning, helping San Francisco cash as $1.45 home underdogs.

Pitcher notes: Southpaw Felix Doubront is coming off his second-worst start of the season, allowing six earned runs in a 10-3 defeat to the Yankees. Doubront is making just his second road start since the All-Star break, while the Red Sox are 7-2 to the 'under' in his last nine outings overall.

Barry Zito has been moved up one day to take Chad Gaudin's spot in the rotation after Gaudin was placed on the 15-day disabled list. Zito makes his first start since late July after spending most of August in the San Francisco bullpen, as the southpaw last won against Oakland back in May. San Francisco is just 2-8 in Zito's last 10 starts, while his last quality start came against the Marlins in June.
