Friday’s MLB Over/Under: Are Blaine Hardy, Brett Anderson Trustworthy?

Aug 03, 2018 7:18 PM EDT
  • Two unheralded pitchers will take the mound for the Athletics and Tigers on Friday.
  • Brett Anderson and Blaine Hardy are both trending upward and should be comfortable in a pitcher-friendly park tonight.

Unfortunately, there’s nothing we can do about a bad beat, which was our fate last night despite Madison Bumgarner and Zack Greinke doing a nice job taking a 3-1 score into the eighth. It was then, however, that Arizona’s league-best bullpen let things get away. Let’s get back on track heading into the weekend.

OK, bear with me. I realize on the surface, this doesn’t look like the most enticing pitching matchup to take an under. Considering the potential upward trajectory of both starters, though, as well as where this series opener between the Tigers and A’s will be taking place, you might be surprised.
