Eighteen of the thirty teams are in action on get-away-day. Here's how the Fan sees them:
- The Astros over the Phillies: Wandy Rodriguez has been terrific, plus he's a lefty. Kendrick goes for the Phillies.
- The Athletics over the Indians: Mazzaro should be better than Masterson, who has yet to put things together.
- The Brewers over the Dodgers: Gallardo gets the win and a hit or two.
- The Blue Jays over the Tigers: Scherzer has been terrific of late, but Romero should be better and the Blue Jays have a better offense.
- The Diamondbacks over the Padres: Taking Ian Kennedy over Correia.
- The Rangers over the Twins: The sweep gets completed as Cliff Lee out duels Liriano.
- The White Sox over the Orioles: Arrieta hasn't been impressive. Jackson has been since joining the Pale Hose.
- The Mets over the Marlins: In a squeaker, Niese beats Sanchez.
And the Game of the Day:
- The Cardinals over the Nationals: Carpenter is back on top of his game. The Nationals feature Zimmermann making his first start of the year. Book it.
Games of the Day: 71-55
