Betting on Major League Baseball

Today in the Daily Sports Roundup: The Yankees play on the road against the Indians in Cleveland, and the Phillies send their ace to the mound at home against the D-Backs.

Meeting up on the diamond . . .

The American League schedule for Wednesday offers up Minnesota at Kansas City, Boston at the Angels, Baltimore at Toronto, Detroit at Tampa Bay, Oakland at Texas, Seattle at the White Sox, and the Yankees at Cleveland. New York will go with A.J. Burnett (8-8, 4.77 ERA) on Wednesday, while the Indians counter with Fausto Carmona (10-7, 3.51 ERA). Righthander Burnett blanked the Royals over five innings last time out, and he beat the Tribe back on May 30 (one earned run over eight innings). Righthander Carmona has won three straight starts, holding the Rays to one unearned run on one hit over five innings in his last trip to the mound. Carmona faced the Yankees back on May 28, losing after surrendering four runs in his six innings of work.

Over in the National League on Wednesday it’ll be the Cubs at Houston, Cincinnati at Milwaukee, Florida at San Francisco, Atlanta at Washington, St. Louis at the Mets, Pittsburgh at Colorado, the Dodgers at San Diego, and Arizona at Philadelphia. Edwin Jackson (6-9, 5.01 ERA) gets the ball for the Diamondbacks in that last contest, while Roy Halladay (11-8, 2.28 ERA) takes the mound for the Phillies. Righthander Jackson has lost three straight starts, giving up six runs (four earned) on eight hits over six innings against the Giants last time out. Righthander Halladay dominated the Rockies in his most recent start, tossing eight scoreless innings while giving up just five hits. Halladay has fanned 140 batters while walking just 20 over 162 innings so far this year.
