Streak for the Cash Picks, May 11

I’m back after a respite the last few days to write about Streak for the Cash. Due to my classload and needing to get finals ready for my students, I’ve been absent the last two days. I’m back for today’s 14 picks from the PGA Tour, the League of Ireland Premier League, and Major League Baseball.

Here’s the three picks I like the most in today’s action:

May 10, 2012; Pittsburgh, PA, USA; Pittsburgh Pirates shortstop Clint Barmes (12) high-fives Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen (22) after McCutchen scored a run against the Washington Nationals during the fourth inning at PNC Park. The Washington Nationals won 4-2. Mandatory Credit: Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

2:45-UC Dublin win or draw: Dublin gets the draw at home and is the slight favorite in this matchup. Dublin is currently 10th in the table having lost 2 of 5 while Shelbourne is 5th and lost 2 of their last 5 as well. Confidence Meter: 2 (out of 10)

7:05-Pittsburgh Pirates: I like James McDonald as a spot starter and the Pirates to beat the Astros. They’re at home against eh slumping Astros and have stopped hitting scoring just seven runs in their last four games. The Pirates and Astros both struggle to score so the games will most likely be a low-scoring pitcher’s duel. I like McDonald better than Bud Norris so I’ll take the Pirates. Confidence Meter: 4

10:05-Detroit Tigers: Rick Porcello has been very good his last few starts after a few stinkers. Tommy Milone, the A’s probable pitcher, has scuffled in his last few starts getting knocked around by the Rays and Red Sox. The Tigers have the better starter and the better lineup and will try to build on the 10 runs they scored last night. Confidence Meter: 6

Current Streak: L1 

Overall Record for the month: 14-12 

Picks with Confidence +5: 5-4
