The Cleveland Indians are looking to catch the Minnesota Twins who have a 3.5 game lead atop the AL Central. Cleveland still has six games against their division rival. The Indians have relied on great pitching. The team ranks first in the American League in runs allowed (527). Shane Bieber (3.23 ERA), Zach Plesac (3.40 ERA), and Mike Clevinger (2.72 ERA) have been stellar.
The offense is led by Francisco Lindor and Carlos Santana. Lindor is hitting .301 with 25 homers and 19 stolen bases this season. Santana leads the Indians with 30 homers and 80 RBIs.
On the mound for the Indians is Zach Plesac. Plesac is 7-4 with a 3.40 ERA this season. In his last outing he allowed one run in 5.2 innings against the Royals.
Tampa Bay Rays
The Tampa Bay Rays are looking to grab an AL Wild Card spot.
They are one game behind the Oakland Athletics who occupy the second wild card spot. Like the Indians, the Rays have relied on reliable pitching this season.
The team ranks third in the American League in runs allowed (552).
Charlie Morton (3.11 ERA), Yonny Chirnos (3.62 ERA), Ryan Yarbrough (3.36 ERA), and Tyler Glasnow (1.86 ERA) have all been terrific this season.
The Rays offense is led by Austin Meadows (24 homers) and Tommy Pham (19 homers).
