A Key Doubleheader in The AL East

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 6/17/2013 7:15:03 PM

The online sports books don’t get to see many scheduled doubleheaders anymore in MLB and that is a shame. Few things cause more mass confusion on a baseball team than having to prepare for a doubleheader. It can get really interesting when the first game goes into extra innings and the managers have to start dipping into their bullpens. The Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays meet in a doubleheader on Tuesday that could start to have playoff implications for both teams.

Tuesday –Tampa Bay Rays @ Boston Red Sox (Game 1)

The betting sites notice that the Boston Red Sox are not taking any chances in this doubleheader as the AL East leader sends Felix Doubront to the mound for game one. The last time that Doubront faced the Rays he went five innings and only allowed two earned runs. The Rays will counter with rookie project Chris Archer, who is 2-5 in his MLB career as a starter. This is Archer’s chance to show that he belongs in the big leagues, but it could be a tough road to hoe with the Boston Red Sox. With the Sox hitters being fresh and Boston looking to maintain its status as the best team in the AL, this will be a tough game for the Rays.

Pick: Boston Red Sox

Tuesday – Tampa Bay Rays @ Boston Red Sox (Game 2)

The Red Sox have re-activated former closer Alfredo Aceves and will put him on the mound to start game two of this doubleheader. It is a good move by Boston because it will prevent the team from having to rely on one of its regular starters in what could be a game played very late at night. Aceves also beat the Rays the last time that he started against them less than a month ago. The Rays will send out another rookie in Jake Odorizzi in an attempt to expand the available starters as the season goes on. The sports betting experts are not so sure that the Rays are doing the right thing by starting two rookies in this doubleheader, but Tampa Bay may not have much of a choice. As the Tampa starting rotation takes more injuries, the team will have to explore its options.

Pick: Boston Red Sox

Tuesday – Seattle Mariners @ Los Angeles Angels

The Mariners and Angels round out a Tuesday filled with AL action by meeting in an extremely important game. The Angels will put Joe Blanton and his 1-10 record on the mound in a game that the Angels simply must win. The Mariners will send out Jeremy Bonderman to start this game. Bonderman is just coming off an impressive win over the New York Yankees. Blanton’s troubles are no illusion as this Los Angeles pitcher is still trying to find his way this season.

Pick: Seattle Mariners
