Angels (Haren) vs Indians (Gomez)
This Angels team is frustrating the hell out of me. I know they are talented but they can't win on the road. This team that was supposed to be a World Series contender is 6-14 and falling way back in the American League West. That being said they are still very talented and it starts with that pitching staff. I am going to go with Dan Haren to get the win.
Brewers (Estrada) vs Cardinals (Lohse)
Kyle Lohse is dealing right now. He is 3-0 and his ERA is still under 1. Those numbers are ridiculous. He looks to continue his early season success against a team he has struggled against in the past. I think that Lohse continues to pitch well and the St. Louis Cardinals win game 2 of this series.
Royals (Chen) vs Twins (Marquis)
I still can't believe how well Bruce Chen is pitching so far for Kansas City. He hasn't gotten a win because the Royals offense has scored no runs for him, but he has only allowed 7 earned runs in 25 innings. He is facing an offense today that isn't exactly setting the world on fire. I predict that Bruce Chen gets the win and the Royals keep on winning.
Tigers (Smyly) vs Yankees (Garcia)
Freddie Garcia against that offense. Just like Phil Hughes against Texas a couple days ago this is a no-brainer to me. The back half of that Yankees rotation is real bad. I am guessing they are already looking to get a quality starting pitcher in a trade.
Mariners (Millwood) vs Blue Jays (Morrow)
Brandon Morrow is on the hill today to face his old team for the first time in 2012. In 2011 he dominated the Mariners, going 2-0 with a 2.77 ERA against them. I have more faith in Morrow then Kevin Millwood right now, and even though the Mariners are hot I think that Morrow will cool them down and get the win.
Pick: Blue Jays
Astros (Harrell) vs Reds (Cueto)
Johnny Cueto continues to pitch well and is finally getting some results to show for it. Now he faces an Astros team that isn't exactly the best in name recognition but is awfully feisty. I am predicting that Cueto continues to dominate and shuts down Houston. In fact this is my lock of the day.
