The American League Division Series continues on Monday with both games taking place. The first one to take place is at Progressive Field when the Houston Astros and the Cleveland Indians face off.
The Astros won four of the seven games played between the two teams this year during the regular season. IN the first two games of this series it was the Astros who won the game.
The Houston Astros won the World Series last year and they have shown in their first two games why they maybe should be the favorites again this year.
The Astros have used good pitching in both of the games, and it’s something that is going to be key the entire run through the playoffs.
On the mound for the Astros is Dallas Keuchel who comes into this game with a 12-11 record and an ERA of 3.74. He isn’t as good as last year, but he is still a good pitcher and he usually rises to the occasion when the moment is best.
In this game they are going to need a good start out of him. If he struggles in this game, it will be tough for the Astros to win this game.
On the other side of this matchup is the Cleveland Indians who have the worst record of any American League team and it was shown in the first two games and now they have their backs against the wall.
The biggest reason for the Indians is the struggle at the plate so far this season. They have faced good pitching but they still have only scored three runs and if they want to this series to continue they need to get the bats going early on.
On the mound for the Indians is Mike Clevinger who comes into this game with a 13-8 record and an ERA of 3.08 He doesn’t get talked about a ton but he has been a solid pitcher so far this year.
He hasn’t given up more than three runs in any of his last ten starts and in his last start he went 6.2 innings against the Royals giving up only three hits and one run.
He has also been good this year during the day coming into this game with a 7-2 record and a low ERA of 2.04.
