The Indians will host the Orioles for game two on Tuesday night. Game one is scheduled for Monday night.
These two teams met last week and the Orioles took two of three.
Matt Harvey will get the ball for the Orioles and Cal Quantrill will go for the Indians.
The Orioles currently sit in last place in the American League East with a record of 22-42. Many had this team well below .500 and so far that is clearly the case.
Their struggles continued this past weekend as they suffered a sweep by their divisional rivals, Tampa Bay.
The Orioles have struggled with their pitching all year, as they currently rank 31st in the league with an ERA of 5.08.
Matt Harvey has contributed to this high ERA, as he currently has one north of 7.
Baltimore’s offense is not considered among the best, but certainly has not been their main issue this year. They score just over 4 runs a game, which is good for 22nd in baseball.
Matt Harvey did not pitch against the Indians when these teams previously met.
The Indians currently sit 5.5 games back of the Chicago White Sox in the competitive American League Central.
Cleveland just recently took two out of three against the Mariners. Their lone loss of the series came on Sunday when ace pitcher Shane Bieber got knocked around for 5 earned runs.
Although Bieber struggled on Sunday, he still has a 3.28 ERA and 130 strikeouts. A second pitcher for this team who has been very impressive is Aaron Civale, who will be going on Wednesday.
Cal Quantrill, who has been used primarily out of the bullpen, will be the starter on Tuesday. He pitched against this Orioles team back on June 6th, where he got tagged for 5 runs in only 1.1 innings of work. He will look to be sharper this time around.
They rank 15th in ERA, allowing 4.1 runs per game.
The Indians are scoring 4.15 runs per game, which is 20th best across the MLB. They have been lead by third baseman Jose Ramirez, who has 14 home runs and 36 RBI. Their offense took a hit when they lost star shortstop Francisco Lindor, who is now on the Mets.

Baltimore Orioles vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
Matt Harvey has struggled all year keeping teams off the board and I do not see that changing when he faces the Indians. I look for this team to hit him around well.
On the other hand, this is a good chance for Quantrill to bounce back after getting crushed by this team recently. Even if he is not great, I feel he can be better than last time.
For me, it is very hard to Pick the Orioles to win. The Indians are the better team and I think they will show that on Tuesday.
I do not want to lay the high price of -217, so I will take the tribe on the runline.
