Arizona Diamondbacks @ Colorado Rockies – 3.10PM ET

This Saturday afternoon clash between the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Colorado Rockies will be the second of a three game mini series. The first game was played on Friday, where the Rockies drew first blood in a dominant performance, winning 7-1. Will the Diamondbacks be able to strike back on Saturday? All will be revealed soon!

The Arizona Diamondbacks are not having the start to the season they would have hoped for, they are currently sitting on a 18-28 season record. They are at the second last in the West Division in the National League, with the Rockies the team behind them. 

The Diamondbacks have only won one out of their last ten games, including series losses to the Dodgers and the Nationals. When it comes to average runs scored per game, they are towards the front of the pack, with an average of 4.6.


The Colorado Rockies are also not having the start to the season they would have hoped for, they are currently sitting on a 16-29 season record. They are at the bottom of the West Division in the National League. 

They have only won four of their last ten games, which included a five game losing streak which was snapped in their last game against the Diamondbacks. The Rockies are near the front of the pack when it comes to average runs scored per game, at 4.65.

The Rockies showed that they could fight for a really dominant win.They have had the taste of victory and we think they will be able to back it up again with another win on Saturday. To top it all off the Diamondbacks are 0-4 in their previous four games against a team in the NL West.

Baltimore Orioles @ Washington Nationals – 4.05PM ET

This Saturday afternoon clash between the Baltimore Orioles and the Washington Nationals will be the second of a three game mini series. The first game was played on Friday, where the Nationals drew first blood, winning 4-2. Will the Orioles be able to strike back on Saturday? All will be revealed soon!

The Baltimore Orioles are not having the start to the season they would have hoped for, they are currently sitting on a 17-27 season record. They are at the bottom of the East Division in the American League. 

The Orioles have only won two out of their last ten games, including series losses to the Rays and the Yankees. When it comes to average runs scored per game, they are near the back of the pack, with an average of 3.9.

The Washington Nationals are also not having the start to the season they would have hoped for, they are currently sitting on a 18-23 season record. They are also at the bottom of the East Division in the National League. 

They have won five of their last ten games, but they could be turning things around as they have won two of their last three. The Nationals are near the bottom of the pack when it comes to average runs scored per game, at 3.38.

This is a fairly difficult game to pick, as both the teams have similar records, form and score a similar amount of runs. But the thing that tips us over the edge of the Nationals is their recent form. The Nationals were able to get a win over the Orioles on Friday, and we will back them to do it again on Saturday.

Minnesota Twins @ Cleveland Indians – 4.10PM ET

This Saturday afternoon clash between the Minnesota Twins and the Cleveland Indians will be the second of a three game mini series. The first game was played on Friday, where the Twins dominated, winning 10-0. Will the Indians be able to strike back on Saturday? All will be revealed soon!

The Minnesota Twins are not having the start to the season they would have hoped for, they are currently sitting on a 16-28 season record. They are at the bottom of the Central Division in the American League. 

The Twins have only won four out of their last ten games, including series losses to the White Sox and the Athletics. When it comes to average runs scored per game, they are near the front of the pack, with an average of 4.6.


The Cleveland Indians are having a solid season so far, and are currently sitting on a season record of 23-19. They are second in the Central Division in the American League, behind the Chicago White Sox. 

They have won five of their last ten games, but they could be turning things around as they have won two of their last three. The Indians are near the middle of the pack when it comes to average runs scored per game, at 4.08.

Despite the Twins winning on Friday, they are actually 1-7 in their last eight games on the road when playing a team with a winning record. We like the look of the Indians to bounce back here, they are too good of a team to be kept down for too long, and the 10-0 loss on Friday will be the wake up call they need.

Los Angeles Dodgers @ San Francisco Giants – 7.15PM ET

This Saturday night clash between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Francisco Giants will be the second of a three game mini series. The first game was played on Friday, where the Dodgers drew first blood, narrowly winning 2-1. Will the Giants be able to strike back on Saturday? All will be revealed soon!

The Los Angeles Dodgers are having the start to the season they would have hoped for, they are currently sitting on a 26-18 season record. They are in a really competitive West Division in the National League, where they are only in third position, despite a good record.

The Dodgers have impressively won nine out of their last ten games, including series wins to the Diamondbacks and the Marlins. When it comes to average runs scored per game, they are up right near the top, with an average of 5.2.

The San Francisco Giants are also having the start to the season they would have hoped for, they are currently sitting on a 28-16 season record. They are at the top of the West Division in the National League. 

They have won seven of their last ten games, which included a five game winning streak which was snapped last game with the loss against the Dodgers. The Giants are smack in the middle of the pack when it comes to average runs scored per game, at 4.36.

This is a clash between two really good teams and it should be very interesting to watch. The Dodgers are really on fire at the moment, so you can’t really go past them! As well as this, it seems like the Giants aren’t a fan of playing on Saturday, they are 1-4 in their previous five games played on this day.

Boston Red Sox @ Philadelphia Phillies – 7.15PM ET

This Saturday night clash between the Boston Red Sox  and the Philadelphia Phillies will be the second of a three game mini series. The first game was played on Friday, where the Red Sox drew first blood, winning 11-3. Will the Phillies be able to strike back on Saturday? All will be revealed soon!

The Boston Red Sox are having the start to the season they would have hoped for, they are currently sitting on a 28-18 season record. They are two games clear at the top of the East Division in the American League.

The Red Sox have impressively won six out of their last ten games, including series wins to the Blue Jays and the Angels. When it comes to average runs scored per game, they are up right near the top, with an average of 5.1.


The Philadelphia Phillies are having a decent start to the season, but it could be better, they are currently sitting on a 22-23 season record. They are sitting in second place in the East Division in the National League.

Boston are a good team playing on the road, and they are actually 16-6 in their last twenty two clashes on the road. The Red Sox are just a better team at the moment and we expect them to come away with another win and another mini series victory again on Saturday night.
