Boston Red Sox vs. Toronto Blue Jays

Friday, September 30, 2022 – 07:07 PM EDT at Rogers Centre

Who Starts for Boston?

Nick Pivetta starts for Boston tonight. Pivetta enters this contest in weak form, having yielded a combined total of 11 earned runs in his past three starts, totaling 15.1 innings.

Boston has lost the last seven games in which Pivetta started against an opponent with a winning record.

The last time Boston won such a game was on July 25 when Pivetta started against Cleveland.

Pivetta vs. Blue Jays' Batters 

Primarily, Pivetta throws a fastball, curveball, and slider. These three pitches combine to make up 97.9 percent of his arsenal.

Blue Jay batters merit optimism tonight because they rank seventh in slugging against his favorite pitches from righties.

Who Starts for Toronto Today?

Alek Manoah starts for the Blue Jays. Contrary to Pivetta, Manoah is pitching excellently right now.

Manoah has allowed 1 run or 0 runs in six of his past seven starts. In the one exception, he allowed two runs in 6.2 innings against Tampa Bay.

Manoah vs. Red Sox's Batters 

In addition to repeatedly victimizing his most recent opponents, Manoah is consistently solid against Boston. This season, Manoah is 2-0 with a 1.35 ERA against Boston.

Boston's Road Struggles 

While Boston has been winning its most recent games, those took place at home. The Red Sox enter today's game, having lost five straight on the road.

Kansas City Royals vs. Cleveland Guardians

Friday, September 30, 2022 - 07:10 PM EDT at Progressive Field

Who Starts for Kansas City?

Brady Singer starts for the Royals tonight. Singer comes into tonight's contest in excellent form.

He has allowed a combined total of one run in his past three starts. Importantly, he lasted at least six innings in those starts.

Singer vs. Guardians' Batters 

Tonight's Royal starter enjoys pitching in Cleveland's venue. In his career, he is 2-0 with a 1.80 ERA in three career starts in Progressive Field.

Singer brings with him his sinker-slider combo. Both pitches combine to make up 91.8 percent of his arsenal.

These pitches make him extra reliable tonight because Cleveland ranks ninth-to-last against them from righties.

Who Starts for Cleveland?

Aaron Civale starts for Cleveland today. He has been strong in his most recent starts, yielding a sub-three FIP (like ERA but factors out fielding) in his last two outings.

Civale vs. Royals' Batters 

Today's Cleveland starter owns a nice mixture of pitches. But he especially favors his cutter, curveball, and sinker.

He throws each of these pitches over twice as often as he throws any other pitch.

Royal's batters match up poorly against Civale in that they rank 29th in slugging against his favorite pitches from righties.

Civale's Meaningless "Over" Trend 

It is true that the "over" has hit in both of Civale's last two starts. But Civale was benefitting from a Guardian lineup that was sizzling.

Now that they clinched their division, the Guardians have cooled off, scoring a combined total of three runs through nine innings in their past two games.

Tellingly, the "under" had hit in Civale's previous seven starts before this two-game stretch.

MLB Pick: Royals/Guardians Under 7 (-105) at BetOnline

Minnesota Twins vs. Detroit Tigers

Friday, September 30, 2022 - 07:10 PM EDT at Comerica Park

Who Starts for Minnesota?

Joe Ryan starts for Minnesota today while pitching as well as he has all season. Ryan has yielded a sub-three FIP in each of his past three starts.

Ryan vs. Tigers' Batters 

Detroit is just the team against which Ryan may expect to prolong his excellent form. He is 3-0 with a 1.02 ERA in three starts against the Tigers overall this season.

In their ballpark, Ryan is 1-0 with a 1.59 ERA. One should expect Ryan to thrive against the Tigers because they rank last in slugging against his pitches from righties.

Who Starts for Detroit?

Tyler Alexander starts for Detroit today. Alexander merits pessimism in this game because the Twins rank eighth in slugging against his favorite pitches from righties.
