The Cleveland Indians have now lost two in a row after falling 5-6 in Tampa Bay against the Rays on Monday. The loss gives the Tribe a record of 4-6 through their previous 10 games.
While they can still relax with a 15.5 game lead in the American League Central, Cleveland has made it clear they are having issues with teams who have a winning record.
One thing the Indians do have going for them is they are still playing solid with the wood, scoring a total of 27 runs in their previous five games.
Right-hander Carlos Carrasco will get the start for Cleveland on Wednesday, looking to improve his already impressive 16-8 record.
He has a 3.41 ERA this season to go along with 201 strikeouts. Carrasco will need to be on top of his game Wednesday as he will be facing some of toughest bats in the Majors right now.
Tampa Bay Rays
The Tampa Bay Rays are fighting an uphill battle. They are currently one of the hottest teams in baseball but still find themselves 7.5 games back in the American League Wildcard picture with just a few weeks left in the season.
Monday night’s walk-off win makes four in a row, putting the Rays at 8-2 their previous 10 games. They have been putting in major work in the batter’s box lately, scoring a total of 41 runs in their previous five games.
American League Cy Young candidate, Blake Snell, will take the hill for Tampa Bay Wednesday night. He is 18-5 this season with an impressive 2.06 ERA.
186 times he has sent batters back to the dugout wondering what just happened. He has been solid against Cleveland’s projected lineup for Wednesday, only giving up a total of five runs.

Free Cleveland Indians vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction:
If Tampa Bay’s recent work with the wood isn’t enough, they will have their ace on the mound on Wednesday.
I think that’s enough to put them in the winner’s column again in this one, regardless of what happens on Tuesday night.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick:
I like this one going over seven. I think the Rays have been good enough with the bats that they will beat up on Carrasco early, forcing the Indians bullpen to go to work.
While I don’t see Cleveland doing much to help against Snell, the total goes over in this one.
