The season-to-date record for the ‘Pitcher Report Plays’ to 18-9 and has made 10.13 units. If you are wagering $100 on each of these games, then you would have earned $1,013.00 through Sunday’s action.

<p style="text-align:right"><em>Ryan’s Pitcher Report Card Plays are 18-9 on the Season</em></p><p>Both plays won Sunday extending the current win streak to six. The Colorado Rockies German Marquez was projected to throw 6 innings and not allow more than 3 earned runs and he far exceeded that, throwing a complete game one-hitter, striking out nine batters and walking one on 105 pitches. His complete game was the first recorded in the Majors this season. He nearly became the second Rockies pitcher in franchise history to throw a no-hitter. Ubaldo Jiménez threw that no-hitter against the Atlanta Braves in Atlanta in 2010.</p><p>Speaking of Atlanta, they did match the summary projections produced by the machine learning tools and defeated the Mets and Jacob DeGrom 7-3 and were installed as +155 home dogs. The Braves got to DeGrom for three earned runs and two home runs before he was pulled at the end of the fifth inning. Braves starter Tehran was exceptional completing 6 innings and allowing just one earned run on six hits.</p><h2>Jackie Robinson Day</h2><p>The honored tradition of Jackie Robinson Day in MLB is today and is honored well by every player in baseball wearing the No. 42 jersey. I am going to detail wagers for this day starting with the Indians at the Mariners matchup set to start at 10:30 PM EST. This play will be to wager on the <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/mlb-baseball/cleveland-indians-vs-seattle-mariners-3729791/odds/" target="_blank">Seattle Mariners over the Cleveland Indians</a>.</p><p>The Indians will have the right-handed Trevor Bauer on the hill to face the Mariners left-handed starter Yusei Kikuchi. Both teams were swept in their previous series and was the first losing series sweep suffered by the Indians on the past 45 series. Kikuchi is a rookie starter from Iwate, Japan and has three excellent pitches. His four-seam fastball averages 94 MPH and has heavy sinking movement causing batters to hit into a high number of ground ball outs. He throws a hard slider that averages 87 MPH and has late-breaking 12-6 downward movement and a curve that averages 76 MPH and has tremendous depth and diving rotation. The 18 MPH gap between his fastest and slowest pitches is an arsenal that will keep the Indian batters guessing. <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/mlb-baseball/cleveland-indians-vs-seattle-mariners-3729791/matchup/" target="_blank">The play is on the Mariners boxed with Kikuchi</a>.</p><h2>Phillies and Mets stay ‘UNDER’ the Total</h2><p>The Philadelphia Phillies, NY Mets, and the Atlanta Braves are in a 3-way tie for the NL East Division lead. <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/mlb-baseball/new-york-mets-vs-philadelphia-phillies-3730322/odds/" target="_blank">This is the first game of a three-game series</a> between the Mets and Phillies and has the potential to shed some meaningful insight to which team will eventually take over the Division lead. The Phillies will have their ace Aaron Nola on the hill and he will be facing the Mets Noah Syndergaard set to start at 7:05 PM EST.</p><p>Nola was roughed up in his last two starts, but the machine learning projections indicate he will pitch well and complete a minimum of six innings and not allow more than three earned runs. He has posted a sparkling 6-1 record with a 3.35 ERA and a 1.137 WHIP in nine career starts against the Mets. Syndergaard has posted a 5-3 record with a 3.23 ERA and a 1.175 WHIP in 10 career starts against the Phillies. He is projected to complete a minimum of six innings and not allow more than three earned runs.</p><p>When two starters have combined for a minimum of 12 innings, the ‘UNDER’ has earned a 12741-5182-892 mark for 71% wins since the 2004 season. In 2019 there have been 60 games where the starters combined for more than 12 innings and the ‘UNDER’ has earned a 43-14-3 record for 75% wins.</p><p>The team record in Nola’s starts is s 22-8 ‘UNDER’ when facing teams whose hitters strike out seven or more times per game in games played over the last two seasons. The team record in Syndergaard’s starts is 12-2 ‘UNDER’ when facing an NL team with a season-to-date batting average of 0.255 or worse in game splayed over the last two seasons. <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/mlb-baseball/new-york-mets-vs-philadelphia-phillies-3730322/matchup/" target="_blank">The play is the ‘UNDER’ and currently</a>, <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=4487&amp;book=5dimes" target="_blank">Five Dimes</a> has the best line for this ‘UNDER’ play.</p><p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/forum/baseball-betting/" target="_blank">Talk Baseball At SBR's MLB Betting Forum</a></p>
