Cleveland Indians  

Cleveland steps into this Wednesday night’s matchup sporting a 73-52 record that pegs them as the best team in the AL Central. And with a 13-game lead over the second seeded Minnesota Twins, there is no one close to challenging Cleveland’s AL Central dominance. But since the Indians have already beat Boston twice in this series, you can bet they’ll be vying for the sweep in this 4-game series. Games 1 and 2 resulted in a 5-4 and 6-3 finish respectively. Clearly the Indians have been getting the best of Boston, but it hasn’t been a landslide either. To come out on top this evening, Cleveland will be starting Carlos Carrasco. Carrasco is 15-6 this season and will be looking to improve on his 3.33 ERA and his 1.10 WHIP.

Players to Watch: Jose Ramirez (37 HR, 91 RBI, .296 BA), Francisco Lindor (29 HR, 76 RBI, .289 BA), and Yonder Alonso (20 HR, 71 RBI, .246 BA).

Boston Red Sox

The Bo Sox enter tonight’s Game 3 matchup flashing an 88-39 record that ranks them 1st in the AL East. Right now Boston has an 8-game lead over the New York Yankees, giving them some breathing room at the top of the division. But since the Yanks are riding a 4-game winning streak, Boston needs to break theirs lest risk having a New York resurgence. Brian Johnson is the man tasked with snapping Boston’s losing streak. Johnson is 4-3 this season and brings a 4.00 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP to the mound this evening.

Players to Watch: Mookie Betts (27 HR, 64 RBI, .340 BA), JD Martinez (38 HR, 106 RBI, .331 BA), and Andrew Benintendi (15 HR, 71 RBI, .300 BA).
