10* MLB LATE NIGHT SHOWDOWN ****RIDICULOUS 11-1 RUN ON THE LINE****
Pittsburgh vs. LA Angels,
08/13/2019 22:07 EDT,
Score: 10 - 7
Money Line: -170 LA Angels
The set-up: Pittsburgh pulled off the upset last night after the Angels returned home from a 2-5 road trip, but I think the home side will bounce back in quick order on Tuesday. The Pirates turn to Trevor Williams, while the home side goes with Griffin Canning.
The pitchers: Williams (4-5, 5.06 ERA) most recently was shelled for six runs off eight hits over five innings in an 8-3 loss to the Brewers on Wednesday (overall Williams is just 1-3 with a 6.35 ERA over his past five outings.)
Canning (4-6, 4.76) returns from a short stint on the IL, but previous to that he held the Tigers scoreless over seven frames on July 30th.
The pick: Last night’s win was just the Pirates fifth in their last 29 games. Expect the now desperate home side to come in focused and to take advantage of this clear mismatch on the mound. Lay the price.
