New York Yankees (Montas) @ Tampa Bay Rays (Armstrong)
NYY ML (-127)- Yankees are in the middle of a 9-20 skid and have dropped the first two games of this series in Tampa. The Rays have now closed the gap to 4 games for first place in the AL East with a month left in the regular season. Shawn Armstrong pitched 3 scoreless in his last outing after having to make a spot start after Shane McClanahan got injured during warmups. Since he has mostly worked short outings this season we will probably see an array of pitchers for the Rays today. Yankees have Frankie Montas starting today and he has not pitched well since his midseason acquisition. So far he has a 7.01 ERA over 5 starts since arriving in New York. The Yankees need to turn it around heading into the playoffs and they have 5 more games with Tampa over the next two weeks which could go a long way to determine who wins the AL East. Despite his recent struggles, today I’m going with Montas and the Yankees and going with the NYY ML -127.
Milwaukee Brewers (Alexander) @ Arizona Diamondbacks (Gallen)
ARI -1.5 (+128) / ARI F5 3-way (-132)- Zac Gallen was exceptional in August with a 0.68 ERA over 40 innings for an overall 2.53 ERA over 145 innings for the season. He pitches at home this afternoon against Jason Alexander who has switched between a starter and bullpen role for a combined 4.97 ERA for the season. His better months have been when he was mostly working in shorter appearances. The Brewers are 2.5 games out of the 3rd Wild Card spot and the D-backs are playing for pride at this point at 21 games out of the WC. Arizona has been hot lately going 7-3 over their last 10 and its hard to bet against Gallen so today I’m going with ARI -1.5 +128 and ARI F5 3-way -132).
