The Cleveland Indians never got the offense going on Saturday as they lost in Oakland. Lonnie Chisenhall hit a home run and Michael Brantley and Yan Gomes each had hits as the Indians scored one run on five hits. Starting pitcher Cody Anderson allowed six hits and four runs, three earned, while striking out four over 6.2 innings to take the loss and fall to 2-3 for the season. For Sunday’s game the Indians start Trevor Bauer who has allowed 103 hits and 57 earned runs while striking out 122 over 124.1 innings for an 8-8 record and a 4.13 ERA.
Oakland is 3-7 in their last 10 games, 1-4 following a win, and 5-1 in Gray’s last six starts. Cleveland is 6-1 in game four of a series, 3-8 in their last 11 games, and 2-5 in Bauer’s last seven starts.
With the total set a seven my free pick in his one is going to be the under as this entire series has just been low scoring and both of these pitchers are capable of a big game.
