A pair of National League postseason hopefuls will meet again in the desert
#1
Arizona Diamondbacks (63-51) host the Philadelphia Phillies (63-49) as solid home favorites at the sportsbooks.The Diamondbacks edged the Phillies 3-2 in Monday's series opener and have now won nine of the past 11 meetings in the series and four straight at Arizona http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authentic-paul-konerko-jersey , according to the OddsShark MLB Database.MLB betting line: The Diamondbacks opened as -180 favorites (wager $180 to win $100); the total is at eight runs, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark (line updates and matchup report).MLB betting pick, via OddsShark computer: 5.2-4.5, Diamondbacks (MLB picks on every game).Check out the OddsShark podcast on iTunes or at OddsShark.libsyn.com for more odds information, betting picks and a breakdown of this week鈥檚 top sports betting news.Why the Phillies can pay on the MLB linesPhiladelphia may be undervalued a bit in this spot despite what looks to be a pitching mismatch with 25-year-old Canadian Nick Pivetta (6-9, 4.75 ERA) on the hill. But after losing his previous two starts, Pivetta pitched well last time out in a no-decision against the Miami Marlins, allowing two runs and four hits in six innings of an eventual 5-2 victory with no walks and seven strikeouts.In fact, Pivetta has totaled 35 strikeouts and only three walks in his past four starts combined, so control has not been an issue for him lately. Instead, he just needs to last longer in his outings and get more run support.Why the Diamondbacks can pay on the MLB linesThe Diamondbacks will lean on ace Zack Greinke (12-6, 2.96 ERA) here and count on him to bounce back after suffering a rare loss. Greinke saw his personal seven-game winning streak end in an 8-1 loss to the San Francisco Giants at home on Thursday. The 34-year-old veteran did not pitch poorly though Yolmer Sanchez Jersey , as he gave up two runs and four hits in six innings with one walk and five strikeouts.Greinke has been good at Arizona overall this season, going 5-2 in 12 starts with a 2.44 ERA and opposing batters hitting .206 against him there. He has not lost two in a row at Chase Field all year either. Smart betting pickThese are two solid teams fighting for the playoffs, and both of them are involved in tight divisional races. That said, the Phillies are still the hotter team right now despite seeing their five-game winning streak end in 14 innings on Monday, so bet on them to rebound. MLB betting trendsPhiladelphia is 5-1 in its last six games.The total has gone under in eight of Philadelphia's last nine games.Arizona is 4-2 in its last six games at home.All MLB odds and betting trends according to Bleacher Report鈥檚 official odds partner, OddsShark.

LOUIS (AP) — Two weeks ago, St. Louis infielder Matt Adams couldn’t buy a hit.He struggled just to make contact, and was mired in a 0-for-27 slump.Those days are apparently over.Adams hit a three-run homer in the eighth inning on Monday night to rally the Cardinals to an 8-7 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates.St. Louis, which overcame deficits of 4-0 and 6-4, moved two games ahead of the Los Angeles Dodgers in the race for the second wild card spot in the NL. Cincinnati beat Los Angeles 10-6 Monday.Josh Harrison, Colin Moran and Starling Marte homered for Pittsburgh, which had its five-game winning streak snapped.Adams homered off Edgar Santana (2-3) to erase a 6-4 deficit.“He threw a slider middle of the plate Adam Engel Jersey , it stayed up and I put the barrel to it,” Adams said.Adams, a former Cardinals player claimed off waivers from Washington on Aug. 21, hit his first homer at Busch Stadium since Sept. 27, 2016. It was his 21st of the season, a career high.St. Louis manager Mike Shildt remained confident in Adams despite his struggles. Adams struck out eight times during his hitless skid, which spanned Aug. 5-28.“You have to have a short memory at this level,” Adams said. “Or it tends to have a snowball effect.”John Brebbia (2-3) picked up the victory for St. Louis, which has won two in a row.Carlos Martinez, a former starter, recorded his third save in as many chances. He gave up run-scoring double to Josh Bell with two out. But Martinez got Francisco Cervelli to ground out to Paul DeJong at deep short to end the game. The bang-bang play at first was challenged, but Cervelli was ruled out after a 31-second video review.DeJong ranged onto the outfield grass to make the play.“He knows the speed of the runner http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authentic-paul-konerko-jersey , he knows the speed of the ball,” Shildt said. “He can beat you in a lot of different ways.”St. Louis right-hander Adam Wainwright, making his first start since May 13, gave up four runs on seven hits in five innings. He retired the last eight batters after giving up three runs in the third.“I’ve got to execute a lot better than I did today,” Wainwright said. “It’s good to be back competing. I love being out there.”Shildt said Wainwright will get another start.“He’s earned the opportunity to go again,” Shildt said. “I trust his stuff, he’s still making pitches.”Matt Carpenter walked to start the go-ahead rally. Jose Martinez followed with a hit to set the stage for Adams’ heroics.Harrison broke a 4-4 tie with a solo shot off Chasen Shreve in sixth. Adam Frazier added a run-scoring hit for a 6-4 lead.The Cardinals scored four times in the fourth off Trevor Williams, who had allowed just four earned runs over his previous nine starts. DeJong had a two-run double and scored on Harrison Bader’s game-tying sacrifice fly.Williams allowed six hits, struck out six and didn’t walk a batter. He was making his sixth start of the season against St. Louis.“I’m just thankful I’m not pitching against the Cardinals again for the rest of the year,” Williams said. “They’re a great ball club and I wish them nothing but success going into October.”Williams came into the game on a big-time roll.“It’s been really a strong stretch,” Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle said. “(Tonight) he rolled his sleeves up, went to work Lucas Giolito Jersey , stopped the bleeding that was going on.”Moran homered in the second off Wainwright, who struck out three and did not walk a batter. Marte ripped a two-run shot in the third, his 19th of the season, for a 3-0 lead.St. Louis is 33-18 under Shildt, who took over for Mike Matheny on July 15.TRAINER’S ROOMCardinals: C Yadier Molina missed his fourth straight game with left hamstring tightness suffered Wednesday in Washington. He is expected to return sometime during the current seven-game homestand that began on Monday. … RHP Adam Wainwright was activated from the 60-day disabled list prior to the game.UP NEXTRHP Joe Musgrove (6-8, 3.75) takes on RHP Miles Mikolas (14-4, 3.06) in the second game of the three-game set on Tuesday.
