The Cleveland Indians look to stay red hot and build on their win yesterday against the Atlanta Braves as they match up again on Tuesday at Turner Field.
The Cleveland Indians have been among the league’s best teams over the last month and they will look to move to 10-1 in their last 11 contests with a win on the road against the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday evening. The Indians will turn to Corey Kluber in this one who will get the start which certainly gives the Indians the edge on the bump over Matt Wisler who will get the start for the Braves whose dismal season has reached a record of 26-49. Cleveland has a very well balanced attack and will only get better once Michael Brantley returns but in the mean time they are riding the hot stick of Francisco Lindor who has been incredible over the last couple of weeks and as such so as his team.

The Braves have been a mess to watch this season and while they did get a few games against the struggling Mets they were dealt a reality check against the Indians yesterday who won their ninth game in 10 tries. Atlanta is undoubtedly going to be sellers at the deadline and while they may not have much in the form of offers outside their bullpen and Freddie Freeman they may have to take what they can get as they are dreadful and don’t have much to look forward to the rest of the season. Atlanta will turn to Wisler here who is 3-7 with a 4.21 ERA and while he has had some bad luck I don’t anticipate much turning around for him or the Braves as they don’t have a lot of weapons offensively.
Cleveland is 5-0 in their last five games against a righty, 4-0 in their last four interleague games, and 18-6 in their last 24 overall while the Braves are 7-1 in their last eight against a righty, 8-3 in their last 11 overall, and 8-22 in their last 30 interleague starts. Atlanta has been better of late but they run into one of the league’s bets here and Kluber should have no trouble disposing of the Bra
