The Philadelphia Phillies and Cleveland Indians butt heads in game two of their series.
The Cleveland Indians will try to regroup following a 4-3, eleven inning defeat at Philadelphia in the series opener on Friday. The Indians squandered a 3-0 5th inning lead and never got their offense untracked. Tribe starter Corey Kluber gave up three runs (two earned) on five hits over seven frames before Cody Allen surrendered a walk off homer in the 11th. Cleveland managed six hits and walked three times but were hurt by 18 strikeouts. Jason Kipnis paced the Indians with a two run homer while Rajai Dave singled in Corey Kluber. The Cleveland Indians send Trevor Bauer to the hill to fill in for the injured Carlos Carrasco. In the bullpen Bauer had gone 1-0 with a 1.59 WHIP and 4.76 ERA covering 11.1 innings.

Not much was expected from the Philadelphia Phillies but right now they are one of the hottest teams in the game. The Phillies needed eleven innings but stayed hot with another victory as a big home dog. Phils starter Adam Morgan was in control until allowing all three runs in the 5th and finished with five hits allowed through five innings with four relievers outing up zeros. Philadelphia did their damage on ten hits and a pair of base on balls with Ryan Howard leading the way with a walk off jack with three hits and a pair of runs overall with Carlos Ruiz driving in a run and scoring. The Philadelphia Phillies hand Saturday’s start to Jerad Eickhoff who faces Cleveland for the first time in his career. Eickhoff comes off of an 8-5 defeat at Milwaukee where he allowed seven runs on nine hits in 5.1 frames.
The over is 8-2 in Cleveland’s last 10 interleague games and the Indians are 6-2 in their last 8 road games while the under is 13-3-1 in Bauer’s last 17 road starts. The over is 41-19-6 in the Phillies last 66 home games and is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings. I see no reason the Phillies can’t steal another win….
