Trevor Bauer has struck out double-digits in six of his last eight starts. He has 83 total Ks in those outings (56 innings) and isn’t just striking guys out, but holding offenses down. He’s got an ERA under 2.00 in that span.
He came on and surprised people, exceeding expectations in the postseason last year. He will have much higher expectations this time around, based on how he’s pitching now.
The Indians are running away with the division. They haven’t played nearly as well as Houston or New York, who still haven’t created separation from Seattle and Boston, respectively. Yet, the Tribe will play the second half comfortably, knowing they will be in the playoffs and won’t even have to deal with the wild card game.
Oakland isn’t going away in the wild card race, either. The A’s are five games over .500 entering Thursday with one more against the scuffling Tigers to try and complete the sweep.
That’s an afternoon game so Oakland will be back in the Bay Area by evening time on the west coast and get a good night’s sleep before Friday.
Paul Blackburn had some good success last season in limited time but he’s been pretty dismal this season with an ERA nearing 9.00 and a WHIP over 1.50. He’s only thrown about two games worth of innings, though.

Free Cleveland Indians vs. Oakland Athletics MLB Prediction: Oakland.
I’m not a big fan of betting on Bauer as a big road favorite. Maybe the Indians loosen up a little and a hungry A’s team steals the opener.
