In baseball it’s all about pitching and the boys from the Bronx have a decided edge in that category on paper tonight. Pineda has great back numbers against the team and the expected Baltimore line-up for this game. Chen is a hit and miss proposition and backing teams’ in that situation will destroy your bankroll.
