The Cleveland Indians look for a win after winning five of their last seven games. The Indians have scored 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last seven games. The Indians have won nine of their last 10 when scoring more than three runs. Michael Brantley leads Cleveland with 156 hits and 81 RBI while Jason Kipnis and Carlos Santana have combined for 114 RBI. The Cleveland Indians have won six straight home games. Trevor Bauer takes the hill, and he’s 11-11 with a 4.47 ERA and 160 strikeouts this season. Bauer is 2-1 with a 5.91 ERA and 25 strikeouts in his career against the Tigers.
The Tigers are 0-5 in their last 5 Sunday games and 5-12 in their last 17 games on grass. The Indians are 10-1 in their last 11 home games and 7-2 in their last 9 during game 4 of a series. The Tigers are 20-7 in the last 27 meetings in Cleveland.
The Indians are rolling again and have been playing lights out ball lately on their home field. The Tigers continue to slump and have had little success with Boyd on the mound. Give me the home team to remain hot.
