The Boston Red Sox collide with the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field on Sunday.
The Boston Red Sox will be thinking about their last place finish in the American League East in the offseason and how they can change that. The Red Sox head in to the final game of the season looking for some offense in a 2-0 defeat at Progressive Field on Saturday. Starter Craig Breslow was outstanding with both runs scoring on solo jacks over 5.1 frames. The offense consisted of three hits and a pair of walks with Sandy Leon going 2-3. Rick Porcello looks for win number ten when he opposes the Indians Sunday afternoon. Porcello has thrown well since coming off the DL but is 9-14 with an ERA around five.
The Cleveland Indians will be looking to finish the year with a .500 record as they have been on the outside looking in at the American League Central in 2015. This one belonged to Corey Kluber who ended his season with style with a three hit shutout through eight innings to up his record to 9-16. The Indians mustered eight hits with Ryan Rayburn and Carlos Santana clubbing solo homeruns. The Indians are slated to start Danny Salazar against the Red Sox in Sunday afternoon action. Salazar has gone 13-10 with a 3.51 ERA while the team is 17-12 in his starts.
Boston are 6-2 in their last 8 overall and are 6-2 in their last 8 games on grass while the under is 8-3 in BOS last 11 overall. The over is 20-6-1 in Cleveland’s last 27 home games while the Indians are 17-8 in their last 25 home games. The over is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings in Cleveland.
