About Last Night
Tigers roar in doubleheader
We don’t say this often but the Detroit Tigers had a great day on Monday, winning both games of their holiday doubleheader against the Guardians, with pitcher Garrett Hill having an impressive first MLB start in the opening game and Jonathan Schoop having a 6-hit day. The Red Sox won for the 8th straight 4th of July, beating the Rays 4-0, but the Blue Jays were upset by the Athletics in a 5-1 loss.

Best Bet of the Day
MLB: Miami Marlins ML vs Los Angeles Angels
6:40 pm ET
The Angels are in a funk again. They were swept at Houston over the weekend, never scoring more than 2 runs in a game. That is not how you get back into the race and they are now down to 4th place in the AL West. The Angels can jack the ball out of the yard but when that approach fails they struggle to score enough to support mediocre pitching. Miami has won 5 games in a row and are sending out their ace, Sandy Alcantara, and he can at least match whatever Noah Syndergaard posts for the Angels and for longer, too. Read our full game preview for Angels vs Marlins.

Quote of the Day
“It hurts, but I was in the zone for a little bit. I was ignoring it.”
Joey Chestnut, who had been the -3000 favorite, pushed through the pain of a leg injury to win the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest for a 15th time. His total of 63 dogs consumed cashed the Pickswise pick of under 74.5 at +110 odds!
