So far it looks like weather should not come into play for any of the games tonight. Tampa Bay and Baltimore are playing a double header today, so If you play the whole day slate only the 1st game stats will count. The late slate will count the 2nd game. Two of the top pitching plays, J. Cueto and M. Bumgarner, face each other tonight. I will be looking for offensive stats in other contests.
V. Nuno- Boston should be able to work this guy. He gives up around 2 homers per 9, and has an ERA of almost 6 with an FIP to match. Fire up Ortiz!!
B. McCarthy- 1 out of every 5 balls that are hit into the air against him leave the ballpark! Let him pitch in the HR Derby in a couple weeks. He has an ERA that matches Nuno. With all that said, I still like him. His xFIP is just under 3, and he throws over 50% ground balls. San Diego has had trouble scoring runs over the season, and this has a low over/under of 6.5. I am defiantly going to play him in a GPP lineup tonight.
K. Lohse- Milwaukee is projected to beat Colorado very comfortably with a -200 money line. He should easily get the win. I like the Milwaukee batters tonight. T. Matzek has not shown he can strike many batters out, and has highest BABIP .344 of any pitcher starting tonight.
