MLB picks: Dodgers@ Giants; 04:35 PM

MLB picks expert previews the third and final match of a three-game series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park on Sunday. The Los Angeles Dodgers have recently pegged their rotation up but Clayton Kershaw has already given them an extraordinary opportunity to be victorious every time he takes the mound; especially when the opponent is the San Francisco Giants. Kershaw, has record of having a lower ERA against the Giants than any other NL opponent, but he is surely anticipating to win his third straight start today. Los Angeles (41-45) has made a major move on Saturday by acquiring Ricky Nolasco from Miami while exchanging three minor league pitchers. Nolasco, the right-hander should add energy to a rotation anchored by Kershaw who is at 7-5 with a 1.93 ERA. Kershaw is leading the majors in ERA and opponent batting average (.189).

Baseball picks expert reports that Kershaw is 10-4 with an ERA of 1.33 against San Francisco (40-46) in a total 20 appearances – out of which 19 were starts. He is 2-0 with an ERA of 1.13 in three 2013 outings against the Giants, and 5-2 with an ERA of 0.74 in eight career starts at AT&T Park. Kershaw’s presence on the mound is not a welcome appearance for the Giants regulars Andres Torres (2 for 31 against him) and Hunter Pence (2 for 32). This duo has a 1 for 18 against Kershaw this year. Current leader and NL batting champion Buster Posey is at 3 for 8 with a homer and double against Kershaw in this year after having an entry with 6 for 33 with nine strikeouts this year. Kershaw will definitely like to win three straight outings for the first time this year. He struck out eight and had no walk in a four-hitter in Monday's 8-0 victory at Colorado. The eight runs of support is a rare eruption for Kershaw, who has recorded an average of 3.2 runs for one of baseball's lowest marks.

MLB predictions expert reports that Matt Kemp, who left with an irritated left shoulder out of the 10-2 victory on Friday could be back in the lineup. The center fielder missed the Saturday's 4-2 defeat too.

MLB picks: Mets@ Brewers; 07:45 PM

MLB picks expert previews the second match of a three-game series between the New York Mets and Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park on Saturday. Shaun Marcum recorded two winning seasons in Milwaukee. He will hope that his first return to Miller Park since departing the Brewers would help him earn a win as he takes the ball in favor of the New York Mets. Marcum, who is at 1-9 with a 5.03 ERA, was a combined 20-11 for the Brewers in the last two years with average ERAs under 4.00 in both, but he doesn’t have that zeal in 2013. The Mets (36-47) have collected wins in his last two starts after losing nine of the first 11.

MLB picks: Red Sox@ Angels; 10:35 PM

MLB picks expert previews the Game No. 1 of a three-game series between Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Angels at Angel Stadium of Anaheim on Friday night. If the Boston Red Sox has to improve their recent road play and build a castle of successes leveraging on the momentum generated from a stellar homestand, they'll need to shut down the surging Los Angeles Angels’ chapter. The Red Sox are seeking a fifth consecutive victory tonight as they try to prevent C.J. Wilson from winning a career-high fifth consecutive start for the Angels. Boston (53-34) hit .349 and it has outscored Toronto, Colorado and San Diego 51-30 during an 8-1 homestand.

MLB Expert picks: Rockies@ Diamondbacks; 10:40 PM

MLB expert picks insider previews the second of a three-game series between Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks at the Chase Field on Saturday night. After a pretty long and difficult stretch, the Diamondbacks will look for keeping it rolling by taking the opportunity to tame a seemingly favorable pitching matchup. Diamondbacks ace left-hander Wade Miley will hope to continue the form against Colorado when he competes with the Rockies' Drew Pomeranz. Arizona (45-41) has seen three consecutive victories since losing eight of total nine before. It limited Colorado to only three singles in a 5-0 victory on Friday. That matchup was the opener of a 10-game homestand paving the way into the All-Star break.

MLB weekly picks expert informs that the Diamondbacks will look for a win again with the help from Miley, who is 4-0 with an ERA of 3.00 in six recorded starts against the Rockies. He played it hard, with his control in his most recent matchup on April 27, collecting a career-high seven walks. However, he pitched 4 1-3 scoreless innings in that match which saw Arizona's 3-2 victory. Miley who is at 4-7 with an ERA of 4.29, is now 0-2 in his past five starts despite earning an ERA of 2.76 and pitching 5 2-3 scoreless innings in his last outing on Monday at the New York Mets.
