Top 3 Match-ups this Weekend

  1. Detroit Tigers @ Boston Red Sox

Friday : Scherzer (5-1) vs. Lester (4-4)     7:10

Saturday: Porcello (6-0) vs. Lackey (5-2)  7:10

Sunday: Sanchez (0-2) vs. Peavy (1-1)     8:05

A rematch of last year’s ALCS should be an excellent series. Friday and Saturday will be excellent pitching match-ups as baseball’s best team challenges the defending World Series champions.

 

  1. Atlanta Braves @ St. Louis Cardinals

Friday: Santana (4-0) vs. Lynn (4-2)          8:15

Saturday: Harang (4-3) vs. Miller (5-2)       2:15

Sunday: Floyd (0-1) vs. Garcia (0-0)          2:15

These two teams should be competing for their division titles all season long and I expect both to be in the playoffs. St. Louis has yet to find their stride and Atlanta has been up and down all season. Look for a tough series with a lot of strikeouts.

 

  1. New York Mets @ Washington Nationals

Friday: Niese (2-2) vs. Roark (2-1)             7:05

Saturday: Colon (2-5) vs. TBD                    4:05

Sunday: Wheeler (1-3) vs. TBD                  1:35

Besides the Braves, everyone is hovering around the .500 mark in the N.L. East. The Mets have been one of the surprise teams and are coming off a split in the Subway Series. The Nationals are coming off a series win at Arizona and look to continue to win series.
