The Indians have been playing sound baseball the second half of the season, and are starting to look like last years AL World Series representatives.
With some injuries to their bullpen, the Indians won’t be at full strength until closer to the postseason. Cleveland is sitting comfortable with a four game lead over the Royals in the AL Central.
Danny Salazar (4-5, 4.32 ERA) will make his second start of the year against the Rays. He is 0-1 with a 9.00 ERA in one start against them this season.
He pitched five innings, allowing six hits, five runs (all earned), four home runs, two walks and nine strikeouts. The Rays hit .286 against Salazar in that start.
Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa Bay is two games over .500 and find themselves right in the middle for the wildcard hunt.
The Rays sit 6.5 games back of AL East leader Boston and are are in a three way tie with the Seattle Mariners and the Kansas City Royals for the last wildcard bid in the AL.
Blake Snell (0-6, 4.98 ERA) still has no wins this season. He pitched four innings of seven hit three run ball against the Astros in his last start.
He got the no decision, and Tampa Bay got the team win, 5-3. Snell has not faced the Indians this season.

It’s hard to bet on a pitcher that has no wins in 14 starts this season. Snell is due, but not against the Indians lineup. Take Cleveland on the road for the win.

Snell is giving up close to five runs per game this season. Salazar has given over four runs per game this year. I expect both lineups to combine for over 9.5 runs. Take the over in this matchup.
