Los Angeles Angels
Penas last outing was as short as they come as he was tagged with a quick second loss of the season in a 5-8 loss to the Seattle Mariners.
He could only put in 0.1 innings of work giving up six hits and seven earned runs while he struck out one and walked two.
In 32.2 innings of work, Pena owns a solid strikeout (9.64 K/9) to walk rate (3.86 BB/9) while he’s done well containing the long ball (1.10 HR/9), but he has struggled stranding baserunners (70.5% LOB%).
The end-result is a high 5.23 ERA, but owns a more representable 3.99 FIP meaning unfortunate luck and bad defense has plagued his ERA.
Los Angeles has been playing losing baseball in the past week as they could only win two of their last six contests.
During that span their lineup is slashing .250/.314/.422 to go with 21 extra-base hits and 30 RBI.
Kluber was solid in his last outing as he was able to put in a quality start while picking up his 13th win of the season in an 8-1 victory over the Detroit Tigers.
He traveled 7.1 innings giving up just five hits and one earned run while he struck out an uncharacteristic five batters while walking just one.
In 145.0 innings of work this season, the ace owns a solid strikeout (8.63 K/9) to walk rate (1.18 BB/9) while he has been exceptional at stranding baserunner (79.1% LOB%), but he could work on containing the long ball (1.24 HR/9).
The end-result is a solid 2.79 ERA, but a higher 3.45 FIP, meaning luck and solid defense has influenced his ERA.
Cleveland continues to play winning baseball as they were able to win four of their last six contests in the past week.
During that span their lineup is slashing .272/.345/.479 to go with 21 extra-base hits and 27 RBI.

Free Los Angeles Angels vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction: Cleveland edges out Los Angeles as home
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: OVER Total Runs
Pena has the stuff to bounce back, unfortunately his LOB% is about to be tested against a solid hitting Cleveland lineup which will take place on the road.
Kluber has not been himself lately as he has only eclipsed five total strikeouts once in his last six starts.
Cleveland may win this contest outright, but I expect both pitchers to give up runs in this outing.
