Friday’s 11 runs in the Cubs-White Sox game made a winner by 3 runs. Let’s see if we can start this week the way the last week ended.
The Baltimore Orioles have beaten up on the Oakland Athletics pitching the last three games by scoring 30 runs, but they have not had to face Sonny Gray, who is tonight’s starter for Oakland. In his last 3 starts,Gray has given up 2 earned runs. Conversely, tonight’s Baltimore starter Chris Tillman has given up just 6. The under has hit in five of the last combined starts of Tillman and Gray. I usually do not like to go with the under, but I am taking a chance that the two teams will score under the 7 1/2 run total as my PLAY OF THE DAY.
Friday White Sox/Cubs over 8 run total WIN
Overall record 10-5
