The Cleveland Indians look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Indians have scored three runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last seven games. The Indians have lost seven of their last eight games when scoring three or less runs. Jason Kipnis leads Cleveland with 92 hits and 28 RBI while Michael Brantley and Brandon Moss have combined for 70 RBI. The Cleveland Indians have lost five of their last eight home games. Trevor Bauer takes the hill, and he’s 6-3 with a 3.22 ERA and 82 strikeouts this season. Bauer is 2-0 with a 4.34 ERA and 22 strikeouts in his career against the Tigers.
The Tigers are 4-1 in their last 5 vs. American League Central and 0-4 in their last 4 games vs. a right-handed starter. The Indians are 18-37 in their last 55 during game 1 of a series and 5-2 in Bauers last 7 starts with 5 days of rest. The Tigers are 20-6 in the last 26 meetings in Cleveland.
The Tigers are going to turn things around eventually. We can't say the same for the Indians, who have been horrible at home. I like Detroit and the plus money.
