MLB Picks and Previews for Tuesday August 28, 2012

August 28, 2012

NY Mets at Philadelphia – Mets RHP Chris Young (3-7, 4.33) vs. Phillies RHP Vance Worley (6-9, 4.06): Young was perfect through five innings of his last start Tuesday, striking out six of the first 12 batters. But his own throwing error fueled a four-run Rockies rally in the sixth, sticking him with his sixth loss in his last seven decisions. … Worley allowed eight hits, two runs, two walks and struck out three in six innings Wednesday against the Reds. It was his longest start since Aug. 1, and the second time in his past six starts he pitched six or more innings. Take the Mets in this macthup.

St. Louis at Pittsburgh – Cardinals RHP Jake Westbrook (13-9, 3.67) vs. Pirates RHP James McDonald (11-6, 3.73): The Cards’ offense bailed Westbrook out on Thursday, when the right-hander did not have his usual sharp sinker. The Bucs have habitually given Westbrook trouble, though he allowed only one earned run against them in an Aug. 18 start. … McDonald walked the bases loaded in the first in his last outing against the Padres and gave up three runs in that frame before settling in for five innings of four-run ball. His outing before that was one of his best, six scoreless vs. St. Louis. We like the Pirates here.

Washington at Miami – Nationals RHP Stephen Strasburg (15-5, 2.85) vs. Marlins RHP Ricky Nolasco (9-12, 5.07): Strasburg has been brilliant in his past four starts, going six innings in each and allowing a total of just four runs in winning all four. He last pitched in Miami July 15 and blanked the Marlins over six innings. …. Making it through the first inning was a challenge for Nolasco, who gave up five runs in the first in Arizona in his last start. He made it through five innings in a no-decision. He is 1-6 with a 6.70 ERA in his last eight starts. Strasburg and Washington are just too strong for this fledgling Marlins ball club. Take the Nationals.
