After the American League won their seventh consecutive All-Star game, Major League Baseball returns and Ben Steele previews three of tonight’s games.
“Chris Sale has recovered from a poor start to the season and is almost back to his best, he faces Ross Stripling who has had the opposite season to his opponent.”
Differing seasons on show in New York
The Toronto Blue Jays and New York Yankees have had vastly differing seasons. While Toronto have struggled to a 34-58 record the New York Yankees have shown themselves to be top dogs in the American League and boast the most wins in the division. Backed by a batting lineup who recently hit at least one home run in 30 consecutive games the Yankees are a ferocious prospect for any pitcher to face.
Toronto’s starter tonight, Clayton Richard, has been very poor all year, battling injury and consistency issues and with the likes of Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez looking to profit from any mistakes you have to back the Yankees to win, and win well.
Red Sox have the edge in World Series replay
The Boston Red Sox face the Los Angeles Dodgers in a repeat of last year’s World Series, and will be favourites to win again off the back of an 8-1 win last night. Chris Sale takes the mound for Boston, his first appearance against LA since closing out the World Series win in 2018.
Sale has recovered from a poor start to the season and is almost back to his best, he faces Ross Stripling who has had the opposite season to his opponent. The Dodgers’ pitcher started strongly but has struggled in recent appearances and LA have had to rely on the bullpen in a number of his starts. With that in mind Boston will have the edge again in what should be a low scoring game.
Reds can spark revival in Colorado
The Cincinnati Reds sit bottom of the NL Central but unlike most of the other teams who are bottom of their division, they are still only a few games back from a playoff spot.
It would be an unlikely story but in an immensely competitive division the Reds spark could start tonight against the Colorado Rockies. Facing a Rockies team who have been the definition of average (45-45) this year, the Reds will look to jump on inconsistent, Rockies starter Kyle Freeland early in the game and then hold the lead with Tanner Roark and an above average bullpen available to utilise.
Colorado is a famously hitter-friendly ballpark so expect runs, but Freeland has yet to show anything in 2019 that could indicate he’ll hold out for a win.
