Ubaldo Jimenez (3-3 with a 3.12 ERA), who will face Cleveland in the second game of this series, pitched well in most of his previous ten starts this season, allowing two or fewer runs in six of them, including 4 hits and 2 runs, while striking out eight over six innings of a 2-5 loss at Houston last Monday.
On the other hand, the right-hander went 1-3 with a 5.25 ERA in his last eight road contests and had big problems in the previous two starts against his former team, in which he gave up 9 hits and 11 runs, with eight walks over 8 1/3 innings.
Carlos Santana is 1-for-1, with a homer and three walks against Jimenez, Brandon Moss is 5-for-12, with a homer and two walks, Michael Brantley is 1-or-4, with a homer and a walk, while Jason Kipnis, Yan Gomes, Michael Bourn, Michael Brantley, Nick Swisher and Jose Ramirez are hitting .305 (11-for-26) against him.
The Indians will send to the mound Danny Salazar (5-1 with a 3.79 ERA), who had problems with his command in the last two starts, in which the right-hander walked seven in eleven innings against the Rangers on May 26 (3-4) and the Seattle Mariners last Sunday (6-3).Salazar yielded 10 hits and 6 runs in those two outings, but is 2-0 with a 3.86 ERA in three starts at Progressive Field this season.
The right-hander pitched well in his previous start against Baltimore, in which he gave up 4 hits and 2 runs, while striking out four over five innings on Aug. 17, 2014 (1-4).
Matt Wieters went 2-for-3, with a double and 2 RBI in his debut game in 2015, but the Orioles were limited to three or fewer runs in six of their previous nine games and in five of their last six road contests.
I think that the Indians will win the second game of their three-game series against the Baltimore Orioles at Progressive Field, probably with more than one run difference.
