Los Angeles Dodgers vs. San Diego Padres
Kenta Maeda is slowly coming back down to earth a bit in recent outings for the LA Dodgers after being nearly unhittable for the first month of the season. Teams are starting to make the adjustment and are having better swings against him of late. Maeda has allowed 8 runs in his last 9 innings of work against the NY Mets and LA Angels and has issued 8 walks over 15 innings in his last three starts showing some signs of struggling with control and command.

San Diego faced Maeda back in April and was shutout in 6 innings against him but for the Padres this will be the first time that any team will be facing Maeda for the second time this season and I have a feeling we might see things end up being somewhat rougher for the Japanese righty as opposing lineups get to face him for a 2nd time and beyond. Colin Rea will be on the mound for San Diego and he has been very inconsistent with a 4.37 ERA overall and he has had some problems with his control as well issuing 6 walks in his last two starts.

He did pitch well against the LA Dodgers previously this season allowing 2 runs in 6 innings against him in April and the Padres are 2-0 in Rea’s previous starts against the Dodgers. I am going to bet side and total here and take a shot with the Padres as a sizable underdog in this game catching +150 at MLB odds and also the Over at 7.5 as one of your MLB picks as it’s certainly worth noting neither of these bullpens has been all that good lately in locking down the latter innings of games.

Baltimore Orioles vs. Los Angeles Angels
We’ve been fading Ubaldo Jimenez in recent outings successfully and I’m not about to hop off that train here as he takes the mound in poor current form for Baltimore against the LA Angels. Jimenez has a 5.73 road ERA and has allowed 11 runs on 14 hits in 9.1 innings of work over his last two starts against Detroit and Seattle with 8 walks and 6 strikeouts in those outings--yet again the theme of a pitcher struggling with control is at hand with Jimenez in this game.

The LA Angels lineup which is in the midst of one of their best surges of the season scoring 56 runs in their last 9 games should be able to hit Jimenez pretty well here. However, I do not trust Jered Weaver all that much more than Jimenez these days. Weaver’s fastball barely cracks the high 80’s in MPH these days losing velocity at a rapid rate and that has left him as an aging and very hittable pitcher these days which is good news for the Orioles and their power laden lineup which is a home run hitting team and can exploit Weaver’s struggles with allowing home runs as he’s yielded 6 home runs in his last three starts combined over a span of 17 innings.

Both teams are streaking toward the Over in recent games. Baltimore is 8-2 to the Over in their last 10 games. The LA Angels are 7-2 to the Over in their last 9 games. Expect another high scoring affair in this game.
