The Line: Cleveland Indians -175 / Toronto Blue Jays +155 -- Over/Under: 9.5
The Cleveland Indians and Toronto Blue Jays meet Tuesday in MLB action at Rogers Centre.
The Cleveland Indians look to stay hot after winning eight of their last nine games. The Indians have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last nine games. The Cleveland Indians have won 14 straight games when scoring four or more runs. Carlos Santana leads the Indians with 100 hits and 54 RBI while Francisco Lindor and Jose Ramirez have combined for 181 hits and 86 RBI. Trevor Bauer gets the ball, and he is 9-7 with a 3.67 ERA and 170 strikeouts this season. Bauer is 3-2 with a 4.91 ERA and 39 strikeouts in his career against the Blue Jays.
The Toronto Blue Jays look for a win after losing seven of their last 11 games. The Blue Jays have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last eight games. The Toronto Blue Jays have won three of their last five games when scoring four or more runs. Freddy Galvis leads the Blue Jays with 102 hits and 47 RBI while Eric Sogard and Randal Grichuk have combined for 166 hits and 73 RBI. Aaron Sanchez gets the ball, and he is 3-14 with a 6.26 ERA and 83 strikeouts this season. Sanchez is 1-1 with a 4.32 ERA and 15 strikeouts in his career against the Indians.
The Indians are 6-0 in their last 6 road games, 16-5 in their last 21 Tuesday games and 7-1 in Bauer's last 8 starts. The Blue Jays are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 2 of a series, 1-4 in their last 5 Tuesday games and 5-16 in Sanchez's last 21 starts. The Indians are 4-1 in Bauer's last 5 starts vs. Blue Jays and 4-0 in the last 4 meetings. The under is 9-4 in Blue Jays last 13 overall. The under is 46-13-8 in Bauer's last 67 road starts.
Bauer has been hittable lately, allowing 26 hits and 12 runs in his last 25.2 innings, but the Indians have won seven of the last eight games he's pitched. Bauer has also been better on the road this season where he has a 2.43 ERA and .209 allowed batting average. Sanchez has allowed 62 hits and 46 earned runs in his last 42 innings, and the Blue Jays haven't won a game with him on the mound since May 17. The Cleveland Indians have a clear pitching advantage and I'm actually surprised the line isn't steeper. Give me the road team.
