Cleveland is 3-6 over their last nine games.
The Indians still lead the AL Central by four games over the Royals, so there is no need to be in panic mode. Just aware of they way they would like to play heading into the postseason.
The Indians just acquired Jay Bruce from the Mets to add power to the lineup moving forward.
Carlos Carrasco (10-5 4.06 ERA) will start for Cleveland. He was touched up by the Rays in his only start against them this season.
He lasted 3.2 innings, allowing six hits, five runs (all earned), one home run, three walks and six strikeouts in the no decision. Carassco carries a 12.27 ERA, allowing Rays batters a .375 average during the short outing.
Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa Bay is one game over .500 and sits 7.5 games back of the Boston Red Sox for the AL East title.
All is not lost for the postseason either. The Rays are in the thick of the AL wildcard, and currently sit one game back of the Seattle Mariners for the second wild card spot. Every game here out has a playoff type feel for the Rays.
Jacob Faria (5-2, 2.81 ERA) has been the best pitcher in the Rays rotation this season. Faria has yet to face the Indians this season, but has been good at home.
Faria is 3-1 with a 2.56 ERA in five home starts this season. Opponents are averaging .207 against him at Tropicana Field.

Free Cleveland Indians vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction:
Carassco has struggled against the Rays lineup this season. Faria has been solid for the Rays all season in home starts. Take the Rays in this game.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER the Number
I don’t expect Carassco to pitch as poorly as he did in his first start against the Rays, but he will give up runs. Faria may give up a couple, but not many. Take the under in tonight’s matchup.
