The Cleveland Indians need a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Indians have scored eight runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five straight games. The Indians have lost five of their last six games when scoring at least three runs. Jason Kipnis leads Cleveland with 79 hits and 27 RBI while Michael Brantley and Brandon Moss have combined for 66 RBI. The Cleveland Indians have lost six of their last eight home games. Shaun Marcum takes the hill, and he’s 2-1 with a 5.19 ERA and 25 strikeouts this season. Marcum is 2-2 with a 3.72 ERA and 22 strikeouts this season against the Mariners.
The Mariners are 2-5 in their last 7 during game 3 of a series and 0-5 in their last 5 Thursday games. The Indians are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 3 of a series and 1-4 in their last 5 games as a favorite. The Mariners are 3-7 in the last 10 meetings in Cleveland.
Both teams have been crazy inconsistent all season long, so predicting a winner is almost impossible. The one thing both teams continue to do is fail to produce runs. I'm taking the under if forced to pick this game.
