2-1 yesterday (+100)Overall 98-90 +451
1:10 PM Tex -125 (-3,6,6,-1) = 0
I know my system rates out to a 0 and I also know that the Rangers are 0-3 their L3 and have allowed 27 runs in those 3 games. But I just fell that the Rangers get it done here for quite a few reasons. First off, Matt Harrison is pitching. Harrison is 8-0, 1.42 in his last eight starts. In addition, HARRISON is 3-0 when starting against CHI WHITE SOX with an ERA of 2.91 and a WHIP of 1.176.His team's record is 5-1 (+4.3 units) in these starts for his career. Offensively, Texas is 16-11 against left-handed starters, while Chicago is 8-13 vs. Lefty's. Harrison is great in the stopper role as last time the Rangers were in this spot (Where the Rangers Lost 1st 2 games of a 3 game set on the road) was in LA vs. the Angels on 6/3/12. That day the Rangers set Harrison to the bump and he got the win. So we will go with the Texas team and Harrison to get the stop to the losing streak here in the series finale on the road.
6:05 PM Pitt -140 (2,2,10,21/2) = 39
Pirates won seven of their last eight games. Houston was outscored 58-23 in losing its last nine road games. We will take the hotter, better hitting team with an average pitcher.

2-3 on the day (-125)Overall after Thursday 100-93 +326Normally, I don't recap, but these games chap my backsideSo the Buccos (Pitt -140) continue to roll and Win 2-0. The Tribe (Cle +101) do what they are supposed to do.
But here is where I get pissy. Tex -125 has no bats only mustering 2 hits, Harrison pitches a great game; works out of jams and the "O" never helps him. No heart for the Rangers right now. I'm afraid they have mailed it in until the All Star break is over. Philly (Phi +102) heads into the Bottom of the 9th up 5-4, Papellbon proceeds to lose the game in the save opportunity. Baltimore (Bal +130) grabs the lead 7-3 in the top of the 4th by putting up a 4 spot, but then proceeds to give up 5 runs to the LA Angels and never score again losing 9-7.
So 2 meltdowns with Baltimore and Philly and 1 "I never showed up" team = 3 heartbreakers.
