The Cleveland Indians continued their string road play on Friday as they beat the A’s in Oakland. Lonnie Chisenhall had three hits and Carlos Santana and Michael Brantley each had hits as the Indians scored two runs on eight hits. Starting pitcher Danny Salazar allowed one hit and one run while striking out four over 8.0 innings to get the win to go to 9-6 for the season For Satuday’s game the Indians start Cody Anderson who has allowed 35 hits and 14 earned runs while striking out 14 over 38.2 innings for a 2-2 record and a 3.26 ERA.
Oakland is 11-24 against the AL Central, 1-4 in their last five home games, and 1-8 in their last nine games. Cleveland is 7-2 against the AL West, 7-2 as a road favorite, and 1-4 in their last five Saturday games. Cleveland is 5-1 in their last six games in Oakland.
There wasn’t a lot of scoring on Friday so I expect for these tams to be taking their hacks on Saturday so I expect this one to go over the total.
