Coming off a highly successful season in which the Indians finished 1st in the AL Central, Cleveland is focusing on getting back into the postseason mix. After all, they lost the World Series just two years ago. What’s more, the Indians got eliminated by the Yankees in the ALDS last season. Undoubtedly, that early-round dismissal has left a bitter taste in Cleveland’s mouth. Unfortunately for the Indians, they haven’t had the strongest start to the year, sitting on a 2-2 record. But in tonight’s matchup, Cleveland will be looking to make a jump for the top spot in the AL Central. Oddly enough, the online baseball betting lines are siding against Cleveland. And that’s despite the fact that Cleveland beat the Angels 6-0 in Game 1 of the series. Josh Tomlin will get the start for Cleveland this evening. Tomlin is a right-handed pitcher who will make his debut.
Players to Watch: Edwin Encarnacion (3 HR, .308 BA, 4 RBI), Yonder Alonso (2 HR, 5 RBI, .286 BA), and Lonnie Chisenhall (4 H, .286 BA,.357 SLG).
Los Angeles Angels
Fresh off a humbling defeat against the Indians, the Angels are deadest on extracting revenge this evening. All in all, the Angels are sitting on a 3-2 record that ranks them 3rd in the AL West. It’s been three seasons since the Los Angeles Angels have qualified for the playoffs. No doubt the franchise will be looking to put a cork on that drought this year. To help get them there, the Angels will be starting Garrett Richards this evening. Richards is a right-handed pitcher as well. So far this season Richards has a 7.20 ERA, 4 SO, 2.00 WHIP and has allotted 2 HRs on the year. With those kind of numbers, it’s a wonder the odds are siding with Cleveland this evening.
Players to Watch: Zack Cozart (1 HR, .333 BA, 3 RBI), Andrelton Simmons (.450 BA, .476 OBP, .450 SLG), and Mike Trout (4 RBI, 1 HR, .261 BA).
