Plesac tosses four-hitter
Cleveland cruised to an 8-0 shutout victory Tuesday night at Los Angeles to improve to 85-61 overall and 42-32 on the road. Zach Plesac threw a complete-game shutout to notch the win as he gave up four hits with five strikeouts and two walks. Franmil Reyes helped pace the Indians offensively as he ended the game 1-for-2 with a double, a walk and four RBIs. Francisco Lindor went 2-for-5 with a solo home run, a double and two runs scored. Jordan Luplow was 1-for-2 with a homer, two walks, two runs and three RBIs. Adam Plutko gets the start tonight as he enters with a 6-4 record, 4.44 ERA and 1.21 WHIP plus 63 strikeouts over 94 1/3 innings pitched.
Angels offense absent again
Los Angeles has only scored a combined three runs in its last three games after being shut out to the tune of 8-0 at home last night against Cleveland. David Fletcher led the Angels offense as he went 2-for-4, while Taylor Ward was 1-for-1 with a pinch-hit double. Kohl Calhoun ended the game 1-for-3 with a double. Jose Suarez took the loss as he gave up six earned runs on four hits with one strikeout and two walks over three innings. Dillon Peters will start tonight for LA as he comes in with a 3-2 record, 4.45 ERA and 1.43 WHIP plus 47 strikeouts over 56 2/3 innings of work.
MLB Betting Trends
The Indians are 4-1 in their last five road games. Cleveland is 7-3 in the last 10 Plutko road starts.
The Angels are 4-14 in their last 18 games overall. Los Angeles is 1-5 in its last six home games.
Los Angeles is seemingly due for a big offensive performance, especially being at home, but I just don't see it happening. Plutko has been at the very least serviceable this season and I like his chances against a lineup missing Mike Trout. Peters is bound to give up a few runs and once the Angels are playing from behind, I don't like their chances to mount a rally.
