The Cleveland Indians fell 2-6 in Toronto on Sunday, splitting the four-game series with the Blue Jays. They are now 5-5 through their previous 10 games and comfortably sitting with a 21 game lead in the American League Central.
They have been slightly above average in their previous five games, scoring 25 runs during the span.
Right-hander Corey Kluber will be on the mound for the Indians Monday, looking to improve an impressive 18-7 record. On the season, Kluber has been automatic with a 2.75 ERA while sending 190 batters back to the dugout wondering what just happened to them.
Cleveland will need him to be hot on Monday if they have any hope of cooling down the Tampa Bay bats.
Tampa Bay Rays
The Tampa Bay Rays were able to bring out the brooms on Sunday after winning 8-3 against Baltimore to complete the sweep of the Orioles at home. They are now 8-2 throughout their previous 10 games but still find themselves 7.5 games back in the American League Wildcard race.
The Rays have been fierce with the lumber here lately, strolling across home plate for 39 runs in their previous five games.
Right-hander Diego Castillo will take the mound for Tampa Bay at home Monday. He hasn’t seen a whole lot of action this season as a starter with just a 3-2 record.
During his work, Castillo has a 3.40 ERA to go along with 48 strikeouts. He’ll need to give the Rays a solid outing on Monday if they want to tighten the gap in the AL postseason race.

Free Cleveland Indians vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction:
Yes, Tampa Bay has been hot lately. They’ve scored almost at will, but remember, their last five games have been against Baltimore and Toronto.
Not exactly the toughest defensive competition. It’s been a while since they’ve gone up against a starter with Kluber’s numbers and I think he alone will be the difference in the game.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick:
As of 5:00 est Sunday afternoon, there still weren’t any numbers up for this game. A lot of that has to do with the fact that Tampa Bay did not name a starter until after Sunday’s matchup with Baltimore was over.
That being said, with Kluber on the mound and a Cleveland lineup that has been everything except consistent lately, I don’t see more than six runs being scored in the game.
