Oakland’s offense was completely powered by shortstop Chad Pinder in its 3-1 win on Wednesday evening.
Pinder homered twice out of the no. 9 spot in the lineup; the first gave the A’s a 1-0 lead in the third and the second, a two-run shot, made it 3-1 in the fifth and marked the end of the scoring for both teams.
The second-year pro out of VA Tech has seven home runs in 26 games this season after hitting just one in 22 games last season.
Sean Manaea was as good as we could have hoped for, giving up three hits, a walk and striking out nine in seven innings. The only damage done to him a solo shot by Francisco Lindor in the fourth.
Jharel Cotton makes his second start since being recalled to the big league team when Kendall Graveman hit the Disabled List.
He didn’t deserve the loss the last time out against the Yankees but he was a victim of walks and some hard luck. Cotton only gave up two hits in 5.2 innings but three walks and a timely home run helped New York put three runs on the board in a 3-2 win.
Mike Clevinger was stingy in the hit column once again, conceding five in 6.2 innings last night but he took the loss because of those two Pinder shots.
Corey Kluber starts the final game of the series as a big favorite to get his team its third win out of four.
Kluber has been out since the 2nd of May with a back injury but all’s a go for his return on Thursday. He hadn’t been pitching well before his DL stint, which leads you to believe the ailment was a problem even before he started missing time.
Perhaps the back injury is long overdue after the weight he carried in last year’s postseason. The Indians simply want their ace healthy going forward.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- OAK are 5-17 in their last 22 road games.
- CLE are 25-9 in their last 34 Thu. games.
- CLE are 22-6 in Klubers last 28 starts on grass.
- CLE are 20-7 in Klubers last 27 starts.
- Head to Head: Under is 35-14-3 in the last 52 meetings.
Free Oakland Athletics vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction: Kluber looks healthy again.
Have to assume that the Indians’ management was extra careful to make sure Kluber is 100 percent, so that’s what I expect. I have Cleveland -200, which mirrors the actual line. My total is half a run higher, at 8.5.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: No Action
Over 8.0 is juiced and not quite far enough away from my assessment of things to make a play. Consider the over a lean.
