Divisional Rivalries Continue Into Tuesday's Baseball Action

Posted by Dale “Skip” Lalonde on 6/16/2014 11:20:37 PM

Plenty of divisional match-ups will continue into Tuesday evening, but some are more important than others as a divisional crown is already on the line. The AL Central is one of the most tightly contested divisions in the league, and the AL West could be just as interesting with a team like the Oakland Athletics playing some dominant baseball.

Kansas City Royals @ Detroit Tigers

Tuesday June 17, 2014 – 7:10 PM ET

All five teams competing in the AL Central still have a shot at taking home the title, but the Kansas City Royals are just 1.5 games back of the first place Detroit Tigers at the moment. The two teams will square off Tuesday evening when they will each send one of their best pitchers to the mound. The Royals will send out the rookie sensation Yordano Ventura, and the Tigers will do the same with reigning Cy Young winner Max Scherzer. Scherzer and Ventura have similar ERA's at the moment, but Scherzer is coming off a complete game shutout against the Chicago White Sox, and with a talented lineup behind him should get his ninth win of the season.

Pick: Tigers

Texas Rangers @ Oakland Athletics

Tuesday June 17, 2014 – 10:05 PM ET

The Athletics continue to look like one of the best teams in the league despite lacking a recognizable ace of the staff, as well as an All-Star hitter who can do it all. But, they still manage to lead the league in runs scored and will attempt to rough up Texas Rangers starter Yu Darvish. Darvish is coming off his first career complete game shutout, but the last time he faced the Athletics he lasted just six innings and allowed eight hits and three earned runs. The Athletics will attempt to keep the game low scoring with Tommy Milone on the mound, and they should have a reasonable chance considering the third-year pro is 4-3 with a 3.47 ERA. While the A's know how to score runs in bunches, they will be in a tough position Tuesday night and be hard pressed to beat Darvish and the Rangers.

Pick: Rangers

Toronto Blue Jays @ New York Yankees

Tuesday June 17, 2014 – 7:05 PM ET

In a surprise to everyone the Toronto Blue Jays are currently leading the AL East by 4.5 games. The New York Yankees are in third place in the division, and with Masahiro Tanaka on the mound Tuesday night they shouldn't have a problem gaining ground on the division leader. The Blue Jays will send rookie Marcus Stroman to face-off with Tanaka, but it's hard to give the youngster much of a chance considering his 5.18 ERA this season as both a starter and reliever. Stroman has recorded three straight quality starts this year, but Tanaka should shut down the Blue Jays lineup and get the Yankees a much needed low scoring victory.

Pick: Yankees
