When’s the last time we had a cold streak like this? Never! The last few days have been tough for us and the matchups haven’t gone our way but things will turn around, they always do.
Indians (Kluber) (-1.5) - Corey Kluber will start for the Indians and he has held this Tigers lineup to a .233 avg in a large sample size of 159 at bats. The Indians will take on Jordan Zimmerman who they have tag teamed in the past and come in with a .349 avg in 106 at bats. They didn’t cover last night but they should definitely cover today.
Athletics (Montas) (Even) - The A’s have lost 2 in a row but before that they had won 8 of 10 games. There’s no real history on either side of this matchup but I think it favors the A’s. Frankie Montas will pitch for the A’s and he is 5-2 this season with a 3.54 earned run average. The A’s will face German Marquez who is 8-8 with a 5.00 earned run average. Marquez is good to allow 4 or 5 at home like he always does and I think that will be enough runs for the A’s today.
Diamondbacks (Buchholz) (-120) - The DBacks are hot and they have beat up on the Padres in the last 2 games by winning 9-4 and 6-2. I think that will continue today when they take on Joey Lucchesi who they already beat on July 6th and April 22. Clay Buchholz will pitch for the DBacks and he has been good. He comes into this one at 3-1 with a 2.38 earned run average.
3-0 today. #BounceBack
