Matt Cain takes the hill for the Giants in their series finale with the Mets. Cain is 2-1 with a 4.70 ERA and a 1.57 WHIP but he had a 2.30 ERA before his last appearance, when he gave up nine earned runs on 10 hits over just 3 1/3 innings to take a 13-3 loss against the Reds last Friday. 

The Mets claimed Tommy Milone off waivers on Sunday and this will be his first appearance with the team. Milone went 1-0 with a 6.43 ERA, a 1.48 WHIP and one save in six appearances (three starts) with the Brewers this season. He allowed four earned runs and two home runs in just two innings of relief against the Braves on April 29 and he hasn't pitched since.     

The Giants are struggling but I like them to get back on track here at +118 MLB odds. Matt Cain was hit hard in his last start but he had given up just three earned runs over his previous four starts while the Mets turn to Tommy Milone to make a spot start. Milone has a 6.43 ERA in six appearances (three starts) and he has given up six home runs in just 21 innings. Also, this will be Milone's fourth start of the season, so I can't really trust him here.

Orioles vs. Nationals

Wade Miley will make his seventh start of the year for the Orioles. He is 1-1 with a 2.27 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP but he has given up three home runs in three road starts this season and he allowed three hits in just 2/3 of an inning against the White Sox last Friday.

Stephen Strasburg will start for the Nationals, he threw 5/2 scoreless innings with five strikeouts in a 4-2 win against the Phillies last Friday and he is 2-0 with a 1.42 ERA in two night games this season.

The Orioles have played decent baseball this season and they're very tough to beat at home but they're not as strong on the road and the Nationals have a significant edge with Stephen Strasburg on the mound. I will add the Nationals -164 as one of my MLB picks

Free MLB Pick: Nationals -164
Best Line Offered: at Heritage
