At 4:05 pm, our selection is on the Houston Astros over the Tampa Bay Rays.  If Game 1 was any indication, this is going to be one heck of a series.  The Rays took a 2-1 victory Sunday night in a game that was dominated by pitching.  After an outstanding performance by LH Framber Valdez, the 'Stros will turn to RH Lance McCullers this afternoon,  With the Rays having used normal #2 starter Tyler Glasnow on Friday against New York, they will turn to veteran RH Charlie Morton today.  After back-to-back All-Star campaigns in 2018 and 2019, Morton struggled through much of this shortened 2020 season, going just 2-2 with a 4.74 ERA and 1.4 WHIP in nine starts covering 38 innings.  Morton has post-season experience with the club the Rays are facing today.  Unfortunately, Morton has struggled against his former team, with a 4-6 record, and a 6.28 ERA in 11 starts, covering 57 1/3 innings.  The other problem for Morton is that, although for his career he is 74-55 (.574) with a 3.78 ERA under the lights, he is just 19-34 (.358) with a 4.84 number in daytime starts.  Meanwhile, the Astros are 85-43 (+13 games on the moneyline) in daytime affairs.  Take Houston.  As always, good luck...Al McMordie.
