Aces Take The Mound To Headline Friday's MLB Action

Posted by Dale “Skip” Lalonde on 6/26/2014 10:42:41 PM

Baseball is about pitching match-ups, and Friday has quite a few good ones as numerous aces will be taking the mound. Some big-name pitchers have struggled this season, namely Justin Verlander, but there are other lesser known pitchers putting up incredible stats and deserve some recognition for their dominance.

Atlanta Braves @ Philadelphia Phillies

Friday June 27, 2014 – 7:05 PM ET

Julio Teheran is only 6-5 this season, but his 2.41 ERA is one of the best in the NL and the second-year pro is beginning to look like a legitimate ace. Teheran has already thrown two complete game shutouts this season, and the last time he faced the Phillies he threw eight innings of one run ball. He obviously makes the Atlanta Braves the early favorite as his opponent on the mound, Kyle Kendrick, is 3-7 with a 4.20 ERA. The Braves have struggled to consistently score runs this season, the main reason Teheran has a record barely above .500, but they shouldn't have much trouble getting a few runners across the plate on Friday in a low scoring affair.

Pick: Braves

Detroit Tigers @ Houston Astros

Friday June 27, 2014 – 8:10 PM ET

Justin Verlander has been less than spectacular this season as he holds a 6-7 record and 4.82 ERA. A drop in velocity is the main reason why, but Verlander still has the stuff to be a front of the rotation starter, and has a legitimate chance at shutting down the Houston Astros. The Astros have scored the fourth fewest runs in the majors this season, and with the less than spectacular Brad Peacock on the mound they will be in a tough position early on. They've already lost four games in a row this week compared to the Tigers who are riding a six-game winning streak and the early favorites in this match-up.

Pick: Tigers

Cincinnati Reds @ San Francisco Giants

Friday June 27, 2014 – 10:15 PM ET

The San Francisco Giants have been one of the best teams in the majors this season, and starting pitcher Madison Bumgarner has been a huge reason why. Bumgarner is 9-4 on the year with a 2.63 ERA, tied with Tim Hudson for best on the staff, and Friday evening Bumgarner will take the mound opposite Johnny Cueto in the best pitching match-up of the day. Cueto has been lights out this season with a 1.86 ERA through 16 starts and still has yet to face the Giants, which should work in his favor. The Giants have proven they can win with their bats as well as on the mound, which is the opposite of the Reds as they've struggled at the plate and relied heavily on pitching to stay in the NL Central race, which makes the Giants slight favorites in this late-night game.

Pick: Giants
