The Cleveland Indians (27-23, 12-13 road, 25-21 O/U) are just two games behind Detroit in the American League Central and need to get on a winning streak. Cincinnati (32-19, 19-7 home, 29-21 O/U) is still a 1.5 games behind St. Louis in the National League Central and just one game up on Pittsburgh. The Indians have a very good starter in Zach McAllister (4-3, 2.89 ERA), who has gone from decent to very good. He is 3-0 with a 2.45 ERA in his last five starts, while opponents are hitting just .238 off of him. He did give up three runs in five innings in his last start, but that was at Fenway Park, one of the toughest places to pitch. Mat Latos is coming off a very strong April (1.83 ERA), but has struggled in May (5.19 ERA). He does have four wins and is getting good run support overall. In his last start, he allowed four earned runs in eight hits in 6 2/3 innings last Wednesday in a no-decision against the New York Mets. The Indians are a big dog tonight with one of their best pitchers on the mound.
