Even after sustaining a broken nose in a softball doubleheader Sunday evening, I still managed to move our winning streak to four games after last night’s Phillies-Diamondbacks Under 8.5 cashed relatively easily despite it stretching 14 innings.

Tonight’s over/under bet might require at least a little more sweating, however, when the Cubs and Royals get together for the second time in this three-game interleague set. That might be the common perception when rookie Brad Keller is on the bump, but the 23-year-old has actually been fairly impressive if you’ve been tracking along.
