The Indians cooled the Athletics down on Friday with a 10–4 win. Paul Blackburn couldn’t seem to catch a break, whether it was a close call or his defense making the right decision where to throw the ball. He doesn’t have the most room for error of any starting pitcher in the game and he suffered because of it.
Matt Olson had just three home runs in the middle of May but he has been hot since then. He hit number 19 in the second inning on Friday to give Oakland a 2–0 lead. Olson has hit 11 of those home runs since the final day of May. It was his first in the month of July.
Frankie Montas has a 105 ERA+ in seven starts that have spanned an average of six innings each. His best three were his first three, however.
The Indians did a little bit of everything on Friday, manufacturing runs with their legs and banging balls off the wall to all fields in the win.
Carlos Carrasco also overcame a slow start to nearly finish six innings. He had his stuff but just took a couple innings to get settled into the game. It looks like all good news going forward for Cleveland.
Shane Bieber is making his sixth career start, a rookie out of Cal State Santa Barbara. He was great in June, when he made three starts and gave up just two runs in nearly 19 innings. He went six innings for his fourth win in his last start, and first of July. He is yet to lose a game as a big leaguer.
