The Indians head into Boston on Sunday afternoon with a chance to clinch a spot in the ALCS.
After holding par at home, Cleveland will try to clinch, while Boston looks to survive and live for another day.
The Indians took every chance possible when it came to their pitching staff in the first two games of the series.
From starting Trevor Bauer in Game 1 and Corey Kluber in Game 2, to using Andrew Miller in the 5th inning of Game 1. Manager Terry Francona pushed all the right buttons and the Indians grabbed a 2-0 lead.
What makes this team so special is that everyone wants to step in. After throwing 40 pitches each, both Andrew Miller and Cody Allen were ready to go for Game 2 if needed.
The Indians may need both Miller and Allen here as they send out RH Josh Tomlin in Game 3.
Tomlin has had a rollercoaster of a season, as he struggled in the later portion, but was dominant in the beginning.
Tomlin is just 2-3 with an ERA of 5.49 in seven career starts against Boston.
Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox found zero luck in Cleveland.
Boston was beat in every aspect and the middle of the order was held down, as they are now just 1 game away from elimination.
Don’t even bother to hell Hanley Ramirez that, as he has guaranteed the series returning to Cleveland for Game 5. For them to have any chance, it’ll start from the middle of the order, especially Ortiz, getting himself going.
Pitching wise, the Red Sox will look for a good start from RH Clay Buchholz.
Buchholz was another guy who had a rollercoster season and like his counterpart on Sunday, was put in the bullpen for struggles midway through the season.
Buchholz has gone 2-2 with a 4.85 ERA in 7 career starts against the Indians.
