Carrasco was roughed up again for a second consecutive start, this time it came at the hands of the Toronto Blue Jays. He went 5.1 innings giving up six earned off of nine hits while striking out seven and walking three. Carrasco has given up 14 hits, 10 earned runs and three home runs in his last two starts.
It’s been a rough last couple of starts for Carrasco, but he’s still managed to post a 11:4 strikeouts-to-walk ratio in his last two starts. He goes through these rough patches, but always seems to bounce back, especially after two bad starts in a row. Look for him to improve his 3.95 ERA.
Despite their excellent hitting in the past week, Cleveland has only won three of their eight contests. Their lineup has been tearing it up though as they are slashing .296/.360/.497 to go along with 36 extra-base hits and 56 RBI in that span.
Guerra was roughed up in his last outing by the hands of the Pittsburgh Pirates as he was tagged with the loss. He went five innings giving up five earned off of six hits while striking out four and walking four. He also gave up two home runs, which are the first two he’s given up all season.
The 8.33 K/9 and 0.67 HR/9 is solid, but he needs to work on his 4.00 BB/9. Interestingly, he has a career .250 BABIP and this season it’s currently sitting at .243, which is pretty lucky and crazy it’s always so low. Throughout his time with Milwaukee he’s always had a worse FIP than his ERA, which is the case this season with a 2.33 ERA and 3.93 FIP, so luck seems to always play a factor.
Milwaukee has been playing winning baseball going 4-2 in the last week. In that time their lineup is slashing .249/.314/.423 to along with 18 extra-base hits and 23 RBI.

4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Indians -145
I expect a bounce-back performance from Carrasco, while their lineup gives him the run support and confidence to put in a quality start. Guerra’s lucky BABIP may take a hit once this hot swinging lineup of Cleveland gets through with him.
