MLB Thursday

The game last night was ours to win. We couldn't lose after 6th inning 3-3 tie, but just not enough to push it through. Take the push and we move on.

Colorado Rockies at Philadelphia Phillies
A very good game, good match, Rox Jhoulys Chacin their top young gun with good mix, induces grounders and uses his slider for the out pitch. Coming off a ND, team loss, to SD at home. Jhoulys is playing well, 4-2 with 1.17 WHIP, team record 5-3. He'll be facing Joe Blanton who's record may not look as good as Chacin's, but Joe's doing heavy road work and small sampling of his home starts does not do him justice. Velocity dropping? His elbow? These issues will be answered. Let's consider Phillies are 11-2 against Rox at home and this domination runs deep into past seasons, but better than 80% is huge. Rox may have been surging and Phillies falling let's see if the tides change in this opportune timely game.

Philadelphia Phillies +113 *Joe Blanton scratched Bet Canceled

Adding a second game in NL at Petco Park.
Milwaukee Brewers at San Diego Padres
Padres hosting the Brewers and Aaron Harang will take the ball on the home mound. Opposing will be Chris Narveson. Brew crew has heated up taking 7 out of last 10 and they are scoring runs. Pads have a terrible home record and have dropped head to head match up 3-1. But what we have here is a top Padres money pitcher going against the worst money pitcher for Brewers. San Diego is also killing left handed pitchers.

San Diego Padres +105(W)
