The Cleveland Indians need a win to snap a five-game losing streak. The Indians have scored eight runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last seven games. The Indians have lost seven straight games when scoring three or less runs. Jason Kipnis leads Cleveland with 125 hits and 38 RBI while Michael Brantley and Carlos Santana have combined for 99 RBI. The Cleveland Indians have lost seven straight home games. Trevor Bauer takes the hill, and he’s 8-7 with a 4.29 ERA and 116 strikeouts this season. Bauer is 1-1 with a 3.86 ERA and 16 strikeouts in his career against the Royals.
The Royals are 14-5 in their last 19 Tuesday games and 4-1 in Youngs last 5 road starts. The Indians are 0-4 in their last 4 games as a favorite and 2-5 in Bauers last 7 home starts. The over is 8-2-1 in the last 11 meetings.
The Indians look like garbage right now, as nothing is going right and they've lost seven straight at home. Not sure why oddmakers keep putting Cleveland as a favorite, but I'm going to keep fading them, especially when they're playing a better team.
