The Cleveland Indians are once again up against the Toronto Blue Jays for the third game of this series on Thursday, as they send Triston McKenzie to the hill in an effort to pull off the upset and move back over the .500 mark.
The Indians have not been able to put together any kind of winning streak recently alternating wins and losses for the last 8 games and with them trailing Chicago in the division by 9.5 games they will need to get it going sooner rather then later if they want any chance of taking down this division.
The Indians starting pitching rotation has been quite decent so far chipping in with 32 quality starts, and Triston McKenzie will look to make it 33 when he heads to the hill for this contest, and he certainly has the ability to do that, but he does not look like he is in the best of form at the moment.
McKenzie has over a 6 ERA this year and is coming off of numerous rough outings, but he does have serious strikeout stuff and looks to have a lot of promise going into the future, but this is about as tough a spot as you could ask for, so it is tough to back him to have much success here.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Toronto Blue Jays have been able to find plenty of success since returning back to the Rogers Center and that makes a lot of sense, as this high-scoring ball park plays into their play style perfectly.
The Blue Jays were good before the trade deadline, but it looks like they may have been taken to a new level since making a slew of new signings, although they now will have to perform against the better teams in the coming weeks before we can tell the degree to which this team has improved.
Ross Stripling gets the call to the hill for this matchup with the Indians and it is tough to know what we will get from him, as he looks like a legit starter some games and gets blown up in the first inning in others and the latter certainly is possible here with the power this Indians batting lineup possesses.

Free Cleveland Indians vs. Toronto Blue Jays MLB Prediction:
This is a great spot once again for the Blue Jays, and the price is not bad at -190, as I fully expect the Jays to go out there and make it a short outing for McKenzie. Ross Stripling has also been decent, and given the fact that this Indians lineup is full of righties, I can see him having a good enough start to put the Blue Jays in a great spot to not only win, but cover the 1.5 run spread on the runline.
