There's nothing quite like October Baseball! We've got our #HomeRunLine plays for both of today's games. The Marlins face the Cubs just after 11 AM Pacific, and we'll be watching the Cards and Padres finish up their series just after 4 PM this afternoon.... definitely don't want to miss that one! Let's start the weekend by gettin' #InTheMoney!
Chicago Cubs -210
Yu Darvish has been masterful all season. His 8-3 record and 2.01 ERA are a good representation of this. Sixto Sanchez is a good young pitcher, but he had a couple rough starts to finish the season. His lack of experience and the playoff pressure could be overwhelming. The Cubs are the better team, and have the playoff experience, which is why we see them flying their flag tonight. We are playing the Cubs -210.
San Diego Padres -113
STL is going with Jack Flaherty on the mound. Flaherty has been average all season; going 4-3 with a 4.91 ERA. On the road this season, his ERA jumps to 9.45 and record is 1-2. In the playoffs last season, he went 1-2 with a 4.24 ERA over 17 innings of work. After San Diego erupted for 11 last night, it’s safe to say Flaherty has his work cut out for him. The deeper he goes in the game, the better the chances are for St. Louis, but realistically he goes 5 and the Padres destroys the bullpen again. Smart money is on San Diego -113.
