Overage City

Sometimes we have to exercise a little patience in this wacky world of sports betting, and that's just what the Roundup advised yesterday. After winning a Brewers Run-Line wager in the afternoon, the evening card was all screwball, and a 1-0 day sounded just fine.

As it turned out, our evening "leans" would have gone 2-1, with the Dodgers winning, the White Sox staying Under the total, and the Mets losing to snap their win streak. Still, no regrets, as I wasn't fully confident in the plays. No afternoon games today, finally, so we can go back to the norm -- all the notes now, all the plays later!

Doug Davis
- The Mets loss in the nightcap of their doubleheader snapped a nice little win streak, and we all know to fade a team coming off a streak. Doug Davis got his pitching back on track in his last start despite continuing command issues. He should fare well against a weak Mets lineup, including David Wright (1-for-11 career), Jeff Francoeur (3-for-14), and Luis Castillo (0-for-7).
Jonny Gomes - 3-for-3 off Aaron Cook, with 2 of those hits leaving the yard -- small sample size, but big time noise.
Albert Pujols - 6-for-11 career numbers against Moehler, though he went 0-for-2 earlier this season.
Skip Schumaker - Batting .500 against Moehler, though strangely, Moehler has never lost to the Cards
Adrian Gonzalez - Gonzalez faced a few pitchers in a row in Cincy that he enjoyed, now gets another in San Diego, as he's 6-for-12, with 2 home runs, lifetime off Braden Looper.
