We’ll break down the games, focusing on the pitching duels and overall matchups, and leave the hitter breakdowns and top stacks for later. Let’s get started!

Chicago Cubs vs. Baltimore Orioles – 6:35 PM EDT – Camden Yards

Pitching Matchup:

Game Insight: Taillon has been solid this season with a respectable 2.99 ERA and low walk rate. He’ll face an Orioles lineup that has been strong against right-handed pitchers, with a collective .337 wOBA. On the other hand, Kremer has shown decent strikeout potential but is susceptible to allowing hard contact, which the Cubs will look to exploit with their balanced lineup.

Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Philadelphia Phillies – 6:40 PM EDT – Citizens Bank Park

Pitching Matchup:

Game Insight: Wheeler has been dominant, sporting a 2.74 ERA and a high strikeout rate. He faces a Dodgers lineup that’s potent but could struggle against Wheeler’s elite stuff. Miller, meanwhile, has struggled mightily with an ERA north of 6.00 and a high walk rate, making the Phillies’ bats intriguing today.

Cleveland Guardians vs. Detroit Tigers – 6:40 PM EDT – Comerica Park

Pitching Matchup:

Game Insight: Lively has been a stable force for Cleveland, providing consistent innings and limiting damage. Detroit’s offense has struggled, particularly against right-handers, giving Lively a favorable matchup. Maeda’s season has been rocky, with a high ERA and modest strikeout numbers, making the Guardians’ hitters a potential threat.

New York Yankees vs. Tampa Bay Rays – 6:50 PM EDT – Tropicana Field

Pitching Matchup:

Game Insight: Rodon’s left-handed prowess will be tested against a Rays lineup that has been effective against southpaws. Pepiot, with his solid strikeout rate, will need to navigate a Yankees lineup that has shown power but also inconsistency.

Washington Nationals vs. New York Mets – 7:10 PM EDT – Citi Field

Pitching Matchup:

Game Insight: Irvin has been a bright spot for the Nationals, featuring a strong ERA and solid command. He’ll face a Mets lineup that has underperformed relative to expectations. Quintana, on the other hand, has struggled with consistency, which the Nationals’ hitters could take advantage of.

Colorado Rockies vs. Cincinnati Reds – 7:10 PM EDT – Great American Ball Park

Pitching Matchup:

Game Insight: Quantrill faces a tough task in the Reds, who have been hitting well, especially at home. Lodolo has been impressive, with a sub-3.00 ERA and solid peripherals, giving him an edge in this matchup.

Oakland Athletics vs. Boston Red Sox – 7:10 PM EDT – Fenway Park

Pitching Matchup:

Game Insight: Estes has struggled with consistency and will face a potent Red Sox lineup that excels at Fenway. Bello, while showing strikeout potential, has been prone to allowing runs, making this a potentially high-scoring affair.

Kansas City Royals vs. St. Louis Cardinals – 7:45 PM EDT – Busch Stadium

Pitching Matchup:

Game Insight: Wacha brings a steady presence to the mound against a Cardinals lineup that has been inconsistent. Pallante’s higher walk rate could be a concern, giving the Royals opportunities to capitalize.

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Milwaukee Brewers – 8:10 PM EDT – American Family Field

Pitching Matchup:

Game Insight: Priester’s low strikeout rate is a concern against a Brewers lineup that can exploit weak pitching. Rea has been effective, keeping runs in check and providing solid innings for Milwaukee.

Miami Marlins vs. Houston Astros – 8:10 PM EDT – Minute Maid Park

Pitching Matchup:

Game Insight: Rogers has struggled with control and consistency, which could spell trouble against the Astros’ potent lineup. Blanco has been sharp, making him a tough opponent for the Marlins’ hitters.

Minnesota Twins vs. Chicago White Sox – 8:10 PM EDT – Guaranteed Rate Field

Pitching Matchup:

Game Insight: Ober’s impressive strikeout rate makes him a formidable opponent against the White Sox. Fedde has been reliable but faces a Twins lineup that can put up runs quickly.

Texas Rangers vs. Los Angeles Angels – 9:38 PM EDT – Angel Stadium

Pitching Matchup:

Game Insight: Scherzer’s elite status is well-documented, making him a tough challenge for the Angels. Contreras has shown flashes but struggles with control, which could be exploited by the Rangers’ powerful lineup.

Seattle Mariners vs. San Diego Padres – 9:40 PM EDT – Petco Park

Pitching Matchup:

Game Insight: Gilbert’s stellar season continues as he faces a Padres lineup that has struggled at times. Mazur has been a weak spot for San Diego, with a high ERA and poor peripherals, making the Mariners a strong favorite in this matchup.

Atlanta Braves vs. Arizona Diamondbacks – 9:40 PM EDT – Chase Field

Pitching Matchup:

  • Braves: Chris Sale (LHP)
    • ERA: 2.71
    • K%: 33%
    • BB%: 5%
  • Diamondbacks: Zac Gallen (RHP)
    • ERA: 3.06
    • K%: 26%
    • BB%: 7%

Game Insight: This game features a top-tier pitching duel. Sale’s elite strikeout ability against Gallen’s consistency makes this a must-watch game. Both pitchers have the tools to dominate, leading to a low-scoring affair.

Toronto Blue Jays vs. San Francisco Giants – 9:45 PM EDT – Oracle Park

Pitching Matchup:

Game Insight: Kikuchi’s solid season faces a Giants lineup that can be unpredictable. Snell’s high ERA is alarming, but his strikeout potential remains. This game could see varied results based on which Snell shows up.
