The Cleveland Indians and Seattle Mariners meet Tuesday in MLB action at T-Mobile Park.
The Cleveland Indians look for another win after losing four of their last six games. The Indians have allowed 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last six games. The Cleveland Indians are 1-5 this season when allowing four or more runs. Offensively, Carlos Santana leads the Indians with 18 hits and 10 RBI while Leonys Martin and Tyler Naquin have combined for 24 hits and eight RBI. Shane Bieber gets the ball, and he is 1-0 with a 1.80 ERA and 17 strikeouts this season. This will be Bieber’s first career game against the Mariners.
The Seattle Mariners could use a win here to snap a four-game losing streak. The Mariners have allowed 12 runs in their last three games and five or more runs in six of their last nine games. The Seattle Mariners are 9-4 this season when allowing four or more runs. Offensively, Domingo Santana leads the Mariners with 25 hits and 23 RBI while Mitch Haniger and Tim Beckham have combined for 42 hits and 27 RBI. Mike Leake gets the ball, and he is 2-0 with a 4.15 ERA and 17 strikeouts this season. Leake is 4-2 with a 3.98 ERA and 42 strikeouts in his career against the Indians.
The Indians are 7-1 in their last 8 Tuesday games, 7-0 in Bieber's last 7 road starts and 5-1 in Bieber's last 6 starts. The Mariners are 7-2 in their last 9 during game 2 of a series, 4-0 in Leake's last 4 home starts and 4-0 in Leake's last 4 starts. The Indians are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings and the over is 6-0 in the last 6 meetings. The over is 4-0 in Leake's last 4 starts overall. The over is 19-9-1 in Indians last 29 vs. American League West.
The Seattle Mariners have cooled off just as quickly as they heated up, and Leake has been shaky in his last two starts, allowing 14 hits and six runs in his last 11.1 innings. Of course last season Leake wasn't that great, which included an ERA of 4.55 and an allowed batting average of .287 at home. Bieber has been great this season, allowing just seven hits and three runs in 15 innings, and he's fresh off a seven inning shutout against the Detroit Tigers. I'll give the Indians the edge in this game.
