Tamba Bay has been in a huge slump, losing 9 of their last 10. And while Kazmir has been decently consistent, he hasn't had a dominant outing since early in the season. Tampa and Kansas City have split all their games this season, with the most recent two being decided by 1 run. Since we normally have to plunk down -110 for a bet that's theoretically even money, getting +110 for the home team here is good value.
So Marcum finally got battered for the first time since they made him a starter. No problem, can't win them all.
Running total: -10
Record: 1-1 (not recording pushes)
Is it just me or does it seem like Houston always gets into 14+ inning games? I feel they certainly do it more than any other team in the league.
