It’s time to get started with another week of baseball, so let’s dive right in to today’s top ten batter vs pitcher matchups.
10. Giancarlo Stanton-Of-Miami Marlins: Stanton has good lines against many of the opposing started he has faced lately which has resulted in a nice little hot streak for the Marlins slugger. Tonight, I think he has a good shot to continue his recent roll as he faces Jason Hammel and the Cubs. In his career, Staton is 5-12 (.417) with a double, home run, and a pair of RBI against Hammel.
9. Joe Mauer-1B-Minnesota Twins: Mauer and the Twins crushed the Red Sox in Minnesota last week and now come to Fenway to start their series with the struggling Sox. Mauer starts the week with a good matchup against Clay Buchholz who he has hit at a 7-19 (.368) clip in the past the three doubles.
8. Adrian Gonzalez-1B-Los Angeles Dodgers: After dropping two of three to the Cardinals, the Dodgers head to Colorado to take on their division-rival Rockies. Tonight, they’ll face Kyle Kendrick which sets up for a good game for Gonzalez since he is 7-18 (.389) with four doubles and three RBI against Kendrick in the past.
