Detroit Tigers vs. Chicago White Sox: MLB Picks for June 4th 2011

Detroit Tigers vs. Chicago White Sox
MLB Pick: Detroit Tigers -119 (June 4th 2011)

The White Sox took the opener of this series last night behind another solid pitching performance from Mark Buehrle. Chicago has now won four straight games which included a sweep at Boston and it has now won six of its last seven home games. That is actually good for us as it is keeping this number down in what is a pitching mismatch going for Saturday. The victory on Friday snapped a three-game skid against Detroit this season and a nine-game skid going back to last season.

Detroit had won four in a row prior to last night and it is still staying within reach of the Indians in the American League Central, trailing by 4.5 games. The offense has come to life after a horrible stretch where the Tigers scored three runs or fewer in 12 of 14 games, averaging 2.8 rpg, as they have averaged 5.5 rpg over their last four games. The pitching kept them afloat during that long stretch and that should remain the case tonight. The White Sox have averaged just 2.6 rpg against Detroit pitching over that 10-game stretch.

Detroit sends Justin Verlander to the hill and he is having a sensational season once again. After starting the season with 10 straight quality starts, Verlander had his first bad outing of the year as he allowed six runs in six innings against Tampa Bay two starts back. He bounced back by tossing 7.2 shutout innings against the Red Sox last Sunday. He faced the White Sox for the second time this season and since the start of 2009 he is 6-0 with a 1.85 ERA in six starts including three complete games.

Chicago has gotten a very inconsistent season from Edwin Jackson and he is coming off another poor outing where he allowed six runs in 6.2 innings against the Blue Jays. To his credit he has been much stronger at home than on the road but he is just not in good form right now. It is actually being talked about that he will be headed to the bullpen soon. Facing his former team has not been a good thing as he has a 6.98 ERA over his last three starts against the Tigers. The White Sox are 2-6 in Jackson’s last eight starts. 3* (973) Detroit Tigers -Matt Fargo ( MLB Picks)

Milwaukee Brewers vs. Florida Marlins: MLB Picks for June 4th 2011

Milwaukee Brewers vs. Florida Marlins
MLB Pick: Florida Marlins +128 (June 4th 2011)

Florida took a 5-4 advantage into the top of the ninth yesterday and wound up losing 6-4 to Milwaukee. That was a tough pill to swallow and I fully expect the Marlins to bounce back nicely this evening.

Toeing the rubber for the Fish will be Palm Beach Gardens product Chris Volstad. In his last start at Arizona, Chris was crushed for five earned runs and eight hits in 3.1 innings of work. Before that poor outing, No. 41 was solid in four previous starts allowing just 13 earned runs and 26 hits through 23.0 frames. Volstad’s overall ERA is a touch high at 5.91 this season. However, inside Sun Life Stadium, Chris has pitched well surrendering just 14 earned runs and 27 hits in 28.1 innings. That adds up to a 2-2 mark and a decent 4.45 ERA.

Red-hot Yovani Gallardo will get the call for visiting Milwaukee. In his last five starts, Gallardo has been almost untouchable allowing five earned runs and 20 hits in 35.0 innings of work. That’s good enough for a 5-0 record and a stunning 1.29 ERA! Fortunately for us, the road has given Yovani some trouble this season. As a guest, No. 49 has been tagged for 16 earned runs and 32 hits in just 30.1 frames. After the math, that adds up to a 2-2 record and an elevated 4.75 ERA!

The Brew Crew has dropped 19 of their last 29 on the road this season. In comparison, the Marlins have nailed 19 of their last 26 coming off a blemish and 23 of their last 31 at home in this series. The Fish are tough to beat in their own backyard and they’ll be juiced here after yesterday’s heartbreaking loss. Take Florida with Volstad. Thank you and best of luck, Tom Stryker. (

Detroit Tigers vs. Chicago White Sox: MLB Picks for June 3rd 2011

Detroit Tigers vs. Chicago White Sox
MLB Pick: Chicago White Sox -137 (June 3rd 2011)

The White Sox are due against the Tigers. Look for them to snap a 9-game losing streak in this series with Buehrle on the hill tonight. The Chicago southpaw has been pitching well and enters this contest with plenty of rest on his side. Consider that the White Sox are 15-1 in Buehrle’s last 16 starts when he pitches on 6 days’ rest. In addition, the White Sox are 8-2 in his last 10 starts vs. the American League Central, 7-3 in his last 10 series opening starts and 36-17 in his last 53 home starts. The White Sox are also 9-3 in Buehrle’s last 12 home starts vs. the Tigers. Detroit, meanwhile, is only 1-5 in Oliver’s last 6 starts. Take Chicago.
