Indians win six straight
The Indians won with their hitting on Thursday, picking up a 9-8 victory at Minnesota. The Indians have won six straight now, scoring 52 runs over the six wins. Cleveland is now 30-25 overall and 12-14 on the road. The Tribe are averaging 5.11 runs per game this season while allowing 4.53 per contest.
The Indians have Carlos Carasco on the mound for tonight’s game. He has started 11 games this season and has a 6-3 record with a 3.98 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP. Carasco has pitched 72.1 innings and has 71 strikeouts with 16 walks.
Twins struggle on the mound again
The Twins suffered another loss on Thursday, their seventh in eight games. They have given up 20 runs over the last two nights. Minnesota is now 22-30 overall and 11-13 at home. The Twins are putting up 4.19 runs per game this season while allowing 4.62 per contest.
Jose Berrios takes the mound for the Twins tonight. He has started 11 games on the year and has a 5-5 record with a 3.67 ERA and a 0.95 WHIP. Berrios has pitched a total of 68.2 innings and has 67 strikeouts with 13 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Indians have now won 44 of their last 54 against a team with a losing record. They also have won six straight against right-handed starters.
The Twins are just 1-5 in their last six following a loss, but they have won 13 of Berrios’ last 16 home starts.
The Indians are mashing the ball right now, but I think Berrios will give them some problems. He has been one of the real consistent pitchers for the Twins this year. Carasco has comparable numbers, but has been trending on the downside over recent weeks. I think Berrio will give Minnesota a lift and the Twins will end the Indians’ current win streak.
The Pick: Minnesota Twins +105
