Giants ace Tim Lincecum is scheduled to pitch in Sunday’s contest.
AL East supremacy is on the line this weekend with the Rays and Yankees looking for big wins. Tampa Bay welcomes the Orioles to Tropicana Field and it's going to be a tough weekend for Baltimore.
The struggling Orioles have enjoyed a nice little run lately, but the fun stops in Tampa Bay this weekend. I like the Rays to record a sweep. With Tampa Bay likely to thrive, the Yankees know they will have to impress against the Royals.
While I like New York to dominate this set in Kansas City, I can see the Royals sneaking one upset. Kansas City is home to an awful team but one that can perform on occasion. I like the Royals to take one game in this series. Bet on the Yankees and Rays to win big with Sports Interaction this weekend.
Red Sox fans will be hoping I'm wrong about the Yankees and Rays. Boston is barely hanging on in the Wild Card race. This weekend the Red Sox face a tough test against the high flying Texas Rangers.
Texas has dominated the AL West but the job isn't done yet. The Rangers know a strong end to the season is necessary to have the momentum required for a deep playoff run. I like the Rangers to play like its fate in October is at stake, winning two out of three. Bet on Texas to win big with Sports Interaction.
Philadelphia is fighting for command of the NL East. The Phillies could take control of the division with a strong showing against the Mets. This New York team looks spent and is just waiting for a team to formally end its playoff hopes. Look for the Phillies to step up and get the job done.
The San Diego Padres travel to San Francisco for a three game set between the top teams in the NL West. San Francisco has home advantage but the Padres are enjoying an amazing season so this should be epic.
There has been little to choose between these two teams all season and now, with command of the division at stake, I expect a thrilling battle.
San Diego has enough to win one of the first two games, but I like San Francisco to have the edge in this series. With Tim Lincecum pitching on Sunday, San Francisco should be able to do enough to take the outright lead in the NL West. Bet on the Giants to win big with Sports Interaction.
