Cleveland Indians vs. Pittsburgh Pirates, another short series of just two games, the Indians at home are dangerous, they have been all season, recently finished a long series of four games against the Yankees 2-2 and managed to defend the house. The Pirates come inspired after sweeping the Reds, but with little hope of winning.
Cleveland Indians: We are unstoppable at home.
The Indians have a positive home record, 31 wins and 19 losses with 62% effectiveness, good numbers. In the last 10 games at home the Indians have suffered, 4-6, but in June in general they have been very good, 13 wins and 8 defeats. The series against the Yankees was heavy, the first and third game was lost, but the last game ended 5-2 in favor for the Indians.
Corey Kluber opens the game at home, 12 wins and 5 losses for Kluber, 2.76 ERA and 0.905 WHIP. The last seasons were perfect for Kluber and surely this year will also end with good numbers. The Indians are scoring an average of 6.02 runs per game, the defense only allows 4.02 runs and the team scores up to 1.50 homeruns per game.
Pittsburgh Pirates: We’re not good.
The Pirates are history, this year they will not be able to go to the post season. 21 victories and 25 defeats on the road, 45.7% effectiveness. 5-5 in the last 10 games, they were recently swept by the Dodgers 0-3, but they won the series against the series against the Reds 3-0. Recovering confidence has not been easy for the Pirates, 9 wins and 11 losses in June on the road.
Trevor Williams, 7 wins and 7 losses for him in the season, 4.36 ERA and 1,253 WHIP, is not the best among the pitchers but Williams did a good job last year despite finishing the season with a negative record. The Pirates are scoring an average of 4.50 runs per game and 8.50 hits.
