The San Francisco Giants could also use a win after losing three of their last five games. The Giants have scored five runs in this series and three or less runs in eight of their last 13 games. The San Francisco Giants have lost six of their last seven games when scoring three or less runs. Buster Posey leads the Giants with 96 hits and 38 RBI while Joe Panik and Eduardo Nunez have combined for 169 hits and 55 RBI. Matt Cain gets the ball, and he is 3-8 with a 5.56 ERA and 53 strikeouts this season. Cain is 1-1 with a 3.00 ERA and 10 strikeouts in his career against the Indians.
The Indians are 8-3 in their last 11 during game 3 of a series, 23-9 in Carrascos last 32 road starts and 36-17 in Carrascos last 53 starts. The Giants are 4-11 in their last 15 during game 3 of a series, 3-9 in Cains last 12 starts during game 3 of a series and 2-7 in Cains last 9 starts. The Indians are 1-6 in the last 7 meetings in San Francisco and the under is 8-1-2 in the last 11 meetings.
Carrasco has allowed two or less earned runs in five of his last seven starts, while Cain has just been a mess that last month or so allowing three or more earned runs in seven of his last 10 starts. The Cleveland Indians have the advantage heading into this game, especially with the Giants still being the Giants and finding ways to lose regardless of the situation. Of course, I'm taking the RL to add value to the insane -200 price.
