The Indians are 9-3 in their last 12 during game 3 of a series and 5-2 in Carrascos last 7 starts. The Rays are 2-5 in their last 7 during game 3 of a series and 0-7 in Colomes last 7 starts. The Indians are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Tampa Bay.
Colome has to win a game eventually, as the Rays have lost seven straight starts when he's been on the hill. I don't trust either team, so the home team it is..
