    EJD falls to 3-3 after six plays in June.

    The goal is 60%, not 50%.
    John, I hit 57% over three attempts which is more impressive than somebody hitting 60% in one month.

    I'm clearly the best EOG has.

    Maybe ComptrBob can tally up my record in all of EOG's featured challenges.

            Nicely done, Birdie.

            And thanks for your recordkeeping, Bob.

                  Absolutely brutal. The game pretty much went just like I drew it up. I suspected from watching some video that Beeks’ stuff wasn’t going to translate well to the bigs, particularly against a righty-heavy lineup like Detroit’s. He gives up 6 in the first 3 innings, Sox load the bases with less than 2 out in both the 2nd and 8th, and I can’t get there.

                    Tough loss, EJD.

                    Shake it off.

                                Play #9:

                                916 Toronto -109 @ Pinnacle (Gausman/Sanchez)

                                Game goes at 1:05 PM local time/10:05 AM Pacific.

                                Kevin Gausman has, after being rather dependable for most of the season, been rocked in his last 2 starts to the tune of 12 ER in 8 innings, and the Orioles have struggled mightily offensively in the last 2 weeks.

                                Sanchez is no bargain either, though 2 of his last 3 starts have been excellent.

                                This opened TOR -128 at Westgate last night and Baltimore has taken massive money. I honestly have no idea why, and I’ll take my chances here.

                                BOL to all today.

                                  EJD improves to 5-4.

                                    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe railbird is the only person to go 0 for 3 in the grand challenge.

                                          Play #10:

                                          959 ARI/COL OVER 12 +102 @ Pinnacle
                                          (Godley/Freeland)

                                          Game goes at 1:10 local time/12:10 Pacific.

                                          As if the elevation wasn’t enough, now add extreme heat. Should be in the upper 90’s at first pitch and it may very well touch 100 at some point during the game. This has the effect of stretching out the atmospheric column even more; the coefficient of friction of a 98-degree parcel of air at 5,280 feet is approximately equivalent to a room temperature parcel of air at 7,230 feet.

                                          Translation: routine fly balls will become home runs today at Coors, just as they have the past 2 days in similar conditions. Throw in a broken-out-of-his-funk Goldschmidt against a lefty, a recently mediocre Zack Godley, and that Colorado pen, and you get a recipe for fireworks at Coors this afternoon.

                                          UNDER is taking money as we speak and I have no idea why.

                                            Final score: Arizona 8 Colorado 3.

                                            EJD could not overcome the game's first five innings which saw Arizona score the game's only run.

                                            The in-game total after five innings was 5.5.

                                            Here's hoping EJD jumped on the OVER at that point.

                                            After 10 days of the Challenge, EJD's record is 5-5.

                                              Play #11:

                                              911 Toronto -104 @ Pinnacle (Gaviglio/Yarbrough)

                                              I’m pretty uninspired by the card today, but we’ll take a shot here. Gaviglio has been mostly effective in his 4 starts this year, and the league is showing signs of starting to figure out Ryan Yarbrough (who, I should mention, is actually STARTING tonight as opposed to coming in in the 2nd inning.)

                                              Toronto will send 6 right handed batters and 3 switch hitters to the plate tonight in Tampa against a team playing awful baseball at the moment.

                                                Final score: Tampa Bay 8 Toronto 4.

                                                      This was probably a mistake in hindsight, as for contest purposes a push is as good as a loss for me at this point, and I can’t afford many more of those.

                                                      But alas...

                                                      Aaron Nola has been lights-out at home so far this year, but Jon Gray has been mediocre at best in road games and this is really my continued fading of the Colorado pen, which is an absolute dumpster fire (as is Philly’s if we’re being honest and it ever gets to that point.)

                                                      This opened 7.5 u-20 at most shops and for a total already that low to move a full half run lower means that I’m clearly on the un-sexy side here. Phillies or Phillies -1.5 wasn’t an option though and even a day of rest isn’t going to get either bullpen in order.

                                                      BOL to all this evening.

                                                            Eric Lauer is the weak link in the Padres rotation, and Luke Weaver has been prettty average for the Cards lately. I like the right-handed pop for the Cards in this matchup (particularly Jose Martinez and Tommy Pham.) I also think Jankowski and Hosmer can do some solid damage at the top of the Padres lineup tonight.

                                                            Should be a good night to hit in St. Louis also. Warm and typically humid.

That’s the case here tonight with a high-flying Boston offense against King Felix, who has been pretty consistently bad the whole season.

                                                                On the flip side David Price has managed once again to underperform relative to expectations this season. I look for the righties (Segura, Cruz, Haniger) at the core of the Seattle lineup to do some damage tonight. PrIce’s current WHIP vs. RHB: 1.31.

                                                                                  Tyler Chatwood has walked more than one batter per inning since May 1st, and one of the keys to the Dodgers playing better recently is improved plate discipline. I also like the fact that the Dodgers will have seen more of Chatwood than most other teams going back to his time in the NL West pitching for Colorado.

                                                                                  The wind is howling out at Wrigley as I write this, but a line of storms lurks marking a cold frontal boundary. After cold frontal passage though the wind will shift to a more left-to-right direction, which is not terrible with two righties on the mound.

                                                                                  This line could also cause a delay, getting the starting pitchers out early.
