Well we got a win out of the Pirates last night but unfortunately the Yankees closer gave up 2 runs in the ninth inning to take his first loss of the season.
A couple of bets for me this evening and it comes in the game between the Los Angeles Angels and the Tampa Bay Rays which starts at 20.35pm BST and will see the newest edition to an already stacked starting rotation for the Angels as newly acquired Zack Greinke takes the mound for his first start.
They traded for Zack on Friday from the Brewers, he has had a great year already going 9-3 but now he has some very big bats behind him I expect him to put even more wins on the board.Up against Greinke for the Rays will be Jeremy Hellickson.
He has a losing record on the season but has done pretty well, but his offence just doesn’t give him enough to play with; they are in the bottom 5 for runs scored and in the top 5 for being struck out the most.
They certainly will not be good enough to spoil the Greinke party and I expect the Angels to have far too much power and for Zack to have a winning start to life as an Angel.
My bets tonight are the Angels to beat the Rays at best price 10/19 with Ladbrokes.
Also I’m taking the Angels to win -1.5 runs on the handicap which pays 11/10 also with Ladbrokes.
Good luck to everyone who gets involved.
