New York Mets at Milwaukee Brewers
What: New York Mets at Milwaukee Brewers (Brewers Coupon Book)
When: Saturday, May 26, 2018, at 3:10 PM
Where: Miller Park, Milwaukee, WI
On Saturday, the Mets (25-21) will hit the road to take on Milwaukee (31-20) in a matchup of surprising teams so far this season, the Mets will give the ball to left-hander Jason Vargas (9.87 ERA) while the Brew Crew counters with right-hander Chase Anderson (4-3, 3.86 ERA). Milwaukee has won seven of their last 10 games while the Mets have gone 6-4 over the same span. However, keep in mind that Milwaukee has been better on the road (18-10) than at home (13-10).
Houston Astros at Cleveland Indians

When: Sunday, May 27, 2018, 1:10 PM
Where: Progressive Field, Cleveland, OH
On Sunday, right-hander Gerit Cole will look to keep up his insanely hot start (5-1, 1.86 ERA) when the defending World Series champion Houston Astros hit the road to take on the Cleveland Indians and veteran right-hander Trevor Bauer (4-3, 2.35 ERA). The Tribe has gone a modest 5-5 over their last 10 games while the champs are 8-2 over the same span.
Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim at New York Yankees
What: Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim at New York Yankees (Yankees Arm Sleeve Giveaway)
When: Sunday, May 27, 2018, 1:05 PM
Where: Yankee Stadium, Bronx, NY
Last but not least, also on Sunday New York Yankees right-hander Masahiro Tanaka will almost assuredly be pitching to L.A. Angels phenom, Shohei Ohtani. While Otani was initially scheduled to start this game opposite Tanaka, he’s been pushed back, so it’s likely he’ll make the start in the lineup instead (hopefully).
Back in 2013 in their native homeland of Japan, Tanaka was 24 years old and on his way to a perfect 24-0 season that helped put him in Yankees pinstripes the following season. Ohtani was an 18-year-old rookie who was dreaming about doing the things that Tanaka was.
Tanaka held Ohtani hitless in 11 at-bats and struck him out six times in 2013. But as Tanaka said last week, “There’s no comparing him physically now with how he was when I pitched against him.”
Five years later, Tanaka is on pace to pitch 200 innings and win 18 games. Ohtani, now, 23, is doing what everyone said was impossible in today’s game – he’s having one of the most remarkable seasons in Major League history by excelling as a two-way player.
Ohtani the hitter is batting .319 with a .991 OPS, seven doubles, one triple, six home runs in 104 plate appearances — good for nearly 1.0 WAR. As a pitcher, he’s 4-1 with a fine, 3.35 ERA, 1.066 WHIP, 11.6 K/9, seven starts, 0.9 WAR This is a dream matchup for both players come true and it could be for you as well MLB baseball bettors!
