3 units on Game Total UNDER 10 -120 (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
It is tough mentally, when you see a team post double-digit runs in consecutive games, especially when the total is 35. The one thing about baseball however, is that the momentum can change with the next day's starting pitcher. Ubaldo Jimenez has made 10 starts and in eight of the 10 the game did not see 10 runs. It is a product of him pitching well enough to keep his team in games as well as an unproductive Rockie lineup - especially on the road. Kyle Kendrick is a much better pitcher than what we have seen thus far, carrying a 13-6 career record into this game and certainly has shutdown capabilities. The Phillies have played under in 17 of the last 22 when their opponent scored five or more in the previous game, and with Estabrooks calling balls and strikes, nine of the last 10 have gone under as he seems to be very pitcher friendly. Under gets the call.
