Betting on Major League Baseball

Today in the Daily Sports Roundup: The Red Sox look for a win over the Mariners in Seattle, while the Reds battle with the Astros, and the CFL concludes its fourth week.

Meeting up on the diamond . . .

The American League schedule for Saturday has Kansas City at the Yankees, the White Sox at Oakland, Minnesota at Baltimore, Toronto at Detroit, Tampa Bay at Cleveland, the Angels at Texas, and Boston at Seattle. The Red Sox will go with Jon Lester (11-4, 2.81 ERA) on Saturday, while the Mariners counter with David Pauley (0-2, 2.40 ERA). Lefthander Lester was tagged for a loss by the Rangers last time out, giving up four runs (three earned) on nine hits over eight innings of work. Righthander Pauley was beaten by the White Sox in his last trip to the mound, surrendering three runs on eight hits in six innings. Pauley walked one and fanned four batters that game.

Over in the National League on Saturday it’ll be St. Louis at the Cubs, Colorado at Philadelphia, the Mets at the Dodgers, San Diego at Pittsburgh, Washington at Milwaukee, Atlanta at Florida, San Francisco at Arizona, and Cincinnati at Houston. The Reds’ Johnny Cueto (9-2, 3.39 ERA) will take on the Astros’ Roy Oswalt (6-11, 3.12 ERA) in that last matchup. Righthander Cueto beat the Nationals in his most recent start, giving up just two runs on four hits over his six innings of work. Righthander Oswalt is coming off a loss to the Pirates in which he allowed two runs over four innings and got hit in the ankle with a line drive. Houston is just 1-4 in Oswalt’s last five outings.

Rounding out the Roundup . . .

The Eskimos (0-3 SU, 1-2 ATS) are the only winless team left in the league, while the Blue Bombers (1-2 SU, 1-2 ATS) have lost two straight games since winning their opener.

The Mystics also knocked off the Fever 68-65 when the two teams met back on June 29. Langhorne picked up 14 points and 10 boards for Washington in that win, while Tamika Catchings had a team-high 17 points in that losing cause for Indiana.
