Cleveland vs Detroit by Sors
Carrasco had obvious problems in his last three starts, as he surrendered three or more earned runs in each of them, including 3 runs on 7 hits over 5 2/3 innings in a 5-4 win at Detroit on June 13.
The right-hander has gone 2-6 with a 7.95 ERA in nine career starts versus Detroit.
Miguel Cabrera is 9-for-24, with a homer, 3 RBI and three walks against Carrasco, Jose Iglesias is 3-for-5, Yoenis Cespedes is 3-for-6 with a walk, J.D. Martinez is 5-for-15, with a homer, 5 RBI and a walk, Victor Martinez is 6-for-18, with 1 RBI and a walk, while Rajai Davis is 5-for-15, with 1 RBI.
The Indians were limited to three or fewer runs in five of their last eight games (.227 BA, with 21 runs and 3 HR in this period), but I think that the hosts may show better efficiency in offense today, give the fact that Detroit will give the ball to Buck Farmer (0-1 with a 12.60 ERA).
The right-hander, who will make his second start of the season, gave up 9 hits and 7 runs, while walking one and striking out one over five innings of a 2-12 loss in Anaheim on May 28.Farmer went 0-2 with a 14.30 ERA in three major league starts.
On the other hand, he can count on sufficient support from his teammates, given the fact that the Tigers scored seven or more runs in each of their last three games.
My bet is for more than seven runs in the final game of this series between the Indians and the Detroit Tigers.
