Best Bet of the Night

Bernard StasenCorrespondent IAugust 5, 2008

My best bet of the night for the MLB is the Kansas City Royals over the Boston Red Sox. I continuously write about this, the Royals, but I somehow believe this team is together as one now. As for tonight, I see it being a close game to begin with. Around two-two in the bottom of the fourth.

In the bottom of the fourth I expect Mike Aviles (18-34, three hr's, six RBIs, and 11 runs in Kansas City's last eight games, 7-1) to blast a home run, going three-for-five on the day with three RBIs and a run. As for other batting help, I see Jose Guillen hitting one out and having two RBIs with two runs.

Pitching-wise, I see Brian Bannister getting his stuff together. Seven and and a third with six k's four walks and the Victory. And to finish the game of Mr. Soria to pick up his 33rd save in 35 ops. All comments and critiques are welcome.
