A look at what’s happening around the majors today:SALE ON HOLDRed Sox ace Chris Sale was still feeling weak and trying to regain lost weight after a stomach illness forced him to spend a night in the hospital after he started the AL Championship Series opener against the Astros. Boston had hoped to start Sale in Game 5 on Thursday night ... owe-jersey , but instead will give him a couple extra days to recover while planning to pitch him in Game 6 on Saturday in Boston, if necessary. David Price will start in Sale’s place Thursday night on three days’ rest as the Red Sox try to win the pennant.Sale threw in the outfield for 10-15 minutes Wednesday before Game 4 in Houston, but manager Alex Cora said the lanky left-hander didn’t throw a bullpen as planned.Boston leads the best-of-seven set 3-1 and is one win from making its first trip to the World Series since winning the 2013 title. Game 1 winner Justin Verlander is scheduled to pitch for the Astros with their season on the line.DEFENDING CHAMPSThe Astros are still under scrutiny, even after Major League Baseball absolved the World Series champions of any wrongdoing after a credentialed Houston employee was caught pointing his cellphone into the opposing dugouts during playoff games in Cleveland and Boston. MLB says the Astros were conducting surveillance, not spying, but the incidents have raised questions about sign-stealing and ethics in the age of high-speed, high-definition cameras.Boston executive Dave Dombrowski also did not think the employee was stealing signs, but he was upset by Houston’s suspicion of the Red Sox and the fact that the Astros weren’t punished because “there was a violation.”“I don’t like the implication that the Boston Red Sox were doing anything illegal,” Dombrowski said Kenta Maeda Jersey , “and I don’t think that the issue is actually closed from Major League Baseball, from what I’ve been advised from the commissioner’s office, so there’s a lot more steps that are attached to this.”YOU, AGAINThe Dodgers and Brewers return to Milwaukee for an off day in the NL Championship Series. Game 6 is Friday night at Miller Park, and the Brewers plan to start Wade Miley again as they attempt to avoid elimination. Miley walked Cody Bellinger to open Game 5 on Wednesday before getting pulled in an unusual bit of strategy by manager Craig Counsell.The left-hander would become the first pitcher to start consecutive games for his team in one postseason since George Earnshaw of the Philadelphia Athletics in the 1930 World Series against the Cardinals, according to STATS. Miley pitched 5 2/3 shutout innings in Game 2 vs. the Dodgers, allowing two hits.Milwaukee starters have tossed just 14 innings in the NLCS, the lowest total ever through five games, the Elias Sports Bureau said.“We’re in a good spot Matt Kemp Jersey , man,” Counsell said. “We’re going back home, to me, in a position of strength.”Hyun-Jin Ryu pitches for the Dodgers, one win from making consecutive World Series appearances for the first time since 1977-78. Jayne Kamin-Oncea/Getty ImagesThe Los Angeles Dodgers (64-56) will try to break their four-game losing streak on Tuesday when they host the San Francisco Giants (60-60) as large betting favorites at sportsbooks.The Dodgers blew a 2-1 lead in the ninth inning en route to a disappointing 5-2 loss to the Giants in the series opener on Monday, as their struggles continued without closer Kenley Jansen, who is being treated for an irregular heartbeat. MLB betting line: The Dodgers opened as -185 favorites (wager $185 to win $100); the total is at eight runs, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.

The Giants overcame nine strikeouts by the 30-year-old to win as big underdogs for the first time in the last five road meetings.San Francisco had dropped four straight at Dodger Stadium, according to the OddsShark MLB Database, and now sends Andrew Suarez (4-8, 4.64 ERA) to the mound. While the southpaw has been bad lately, this will be his first career start versus Los Angeles, and that could work in his favor due to unfamiliarity. Why the Dodgers can pay on the MLB linesThree of the four losses during their current skid have been decided by one run for the Dodgers, and the other was a simple implosion by their bullpen in the ninth to the Giants, particularly reliever Scott Alexander. It is doubtful bettors will see Alexander again here ... ood-jersey , and starting pitcher Alex Wood (7-6, 3.58 ERA) has been very good recently for Los Angeles.Even though Wood suffered a loss in his last outing, he allowed only one earned run in six innings of a 2-1 setback to the Houston Astros on August 3. The 27-year-old had gone 6-0 in his previous eight starts without surrendering more than three runs. Smart betting pickWood is coming off the 10-day disabled list in this spot after dealing with a hamstring injury, and the Dodgers are hoping he can pick up where he left off. He has gone 1-1 with a 2.29 ERA in three starts against San Francisco this year, with his opponent batting only .155 in his 19.2 innings over that period.Look for Los Angeles to bounce back behind Wood and end the team's losing streak as Suarez continues his struggles.MLB betting trendsThe total has gone under in 14 of San Francisco's last 21 games on the road.The total has gone under in four of San Francisco's last five games when playing Los Angeles.Los Angeles is 4-2 in its last six games when playing at home against San Francisco.All MLB odds and betting trends according to Bleacher Report's official odds partner, OddsShark.
