Wednesday's Top Action
Yankees at Blue Jays - 7:05 PM EST

Probables: H. Kuroda (11-9, 2.71 ERA) vs. T. Redmond (1-2, 4.44 ERA)

Series recap: Toronto captured the series opener on Monday, 5-2 to snap a 10-game skid to New York. However, the Yankees rebounded with a bang last night by blasting four homers in a 7-1 victory as a short road favorite. Each of the last five meetings between these AL East rivals has finished 'under' the total.

Current trends: The Yankees have drilled the 'under' in seven of the last eight games overall, while Hiroki Kuroda has hit the 'under' in 10 of his past 11 starts. The Jays have split their last 10 home contests, while posting a 1-6 record in the previous seven games against AL East opponents.

Athletics at Tigers - 7:08 PM EST

Probables: D. Straily (6-7, 4.56 ERA) vs. D. Fister (11-6, 3.54 ERA)

Series recap: The A's have stepped up in the first two games of this series by beating the Tigers as heavy road underdogs. Oakland held off Detroit in the opener, 8-6, while following up with a 6-3 victory in a rain-shortened six-inning game last night. The 'over' has hit in each of the last four meetings between these clubs.

Current trends: Oakland is riding a 6-1 'over' run the last seven games, while winning four of its last six Game 3's of a road series. The Tigers have dropped four of their last five home contests, with each defeat coming as a $1.60 favorite or higher.

Orioles at Red Sox - 7:10 PM EST

Probables:
B. Norris (9-10, 4.22 ERA) vs. J. Lackey (8-11, 3.17 ERA)

Series recap: Boston crushed Baltimore on Tuesday, 13-2 to easily cash as a $1.25 home favorite. The Red Sox have won each of the last three meetings with the Orioles, as Boston has scored at least five runs in each of those victories.

Current trends: The Orioles have struggled recently in the second game of a series, losing eight of the previous 10 in this situation (seven losses in favorite role). Boston has cashed the 'under' in 12 of John Lackey's last 13 starts overall, while the Red Sox own a 2-5 record in his past seven outings.

Angels at Rays - 7:10 PM EST

Probables: G. Richards (4-5, 3.95 ERA) vs. C. Archer (7-5, 2.93 ERA)

Series recap: Los Angeles stunned Tampa Bay with two runs in the top of the ninth inning of last night's 6-5 road triumph as a $1.25 underdog. The victory was the first in the last seven meetings against the Rays, as each of those six losses by the Angels actually came at home.

Current trends: The Angels have won five straight road games, including four in the underdog role. The Rays are suffering through a three-game skid, which has interestingly enough come against three different teams (Yankees, Royals, and Angels). Tampa Bay has won eight of its last 10 Game 2's at Tropicana Field.

Indians at Braves - 7:10 PM EST

Probables: J. Masterson (14-9, 3.50 ERA) vs. P. Maholm (9-10, 4.51 ERA)

Series recap: Atlanta blanked Cleveland, 2-0 last night as a $1.30 home favorite, the ninth home series opening victory in the last 10 tries. The Braves have split their last 10 games against American League competition, while hosting the Indians for the first time since 2004.

Current trends: The Indians have hit the 'under' in six of their last seven games overall, including four straight on the highway. After winning his first two starts in the road underdog role, Justin Masterson is just 1-6 in his past seven trips to the mound in this situation. Since the All-Star break, the Braves own a sterling 14-2 record at Turner Field.

Reds at Cardinals - 8:15 PM EST

Probables: H. Bailey (8-10, 3.71 ERA) vs. A. Wainwright (15-7, 2.58 ERA)

Series recap: The Cardinals are starting to distance themselves from the Pirates and Reds inside the NL Central race. St. Louis captured another victory over Cincinnati last night, cruising to a 6-1 triumph as a short home underdog, while the total stayed 'under' eight.

Current trends: The Redbirds have won eight of the last 10 meetings with Cincinnati, while putting a together a 7-2 record the past nine home contests. Cincinnati has dropped four of its last five games away from the Great American Ballpark, all against division opponents. The Reds are trying to avoid their third losing streak of four games this season, with each of the first two skids also coming on the road.
