The Cleveland Indians need a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Indians have allowed 20 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight straight games. The Indians have lost seven of their last nine games when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Jason Kipnis and Michael Brantley have combined for 46 hits and 19 RBI while Brandon Moss leads Cleveland with 16 RBI. The Cleveland Indians have lost five of their last eight games on their home field. Trevor Bauer takes the hill, and he’s 2-0 with a 1.80 ERA and 28 strikeouts this season. This will be Bauer’s first career game against the Blue Jays.
The Blue Jays are 0-4 in their last 4 during game 4 of a series and 5-1 in Hutchisons last 6 starts. The Indians are 3-7 in their last 10 home games and 5-2 in Bauers last 7 starts as a favorite.
Bauer has been great all season long and this is more of a must-win game for the Indians who are really off to a poor start. I like the home team for the cheap chalk.
