The Oakland Athletics have been great this year and they will look to continue their excellent 2021 campaign this Tuesday, as they take on the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field.
The Oakland Athletics will enter this contest off the back of 4 straight wins and even though 3 of those came against a weakened Texas Rangers side they have managed to climb to just 2 games back of the Houston Astros and they now look primed to make this divisional race very interesting right down to the wire.
This Athletics pitching staff has been elite this year, and even though they play in a pitcher friendly ball park, their numbers are still outstanding even when adjusted. The starting rotation has now provided the most quality starts out of any pitching rotation in all of baseball with 60 and I can certainly see Sean Manaea making it 61 by the time this one finishes up on Tuesday.
The Athletics batting lineup has also done their part, and given how good their pitching staff is they really only need to be average at the end of the day to be competitive, and they have been just that ranking 17th in terms of total runs scored this year with 497.
Sean Manaea enters this game with an 8-7 record and a stellar 3.26 ERA and unfortunately for Manaea that ERA was on the uptick after his last game giving up 8 hits and 5 earned runs after 4.1 innings pitched, so he will be looking to bounce back here.
The Cleveland Indians should be feeling good about themselves coming into this series, as they just beat the Detroit Tigers 2-1 in their last series and this will be another important one for them, as every game down the stretch will matter for the Indians should they still want to make the playoffs.
The one guy I really want to look out for down the stretch on this Indians team is Franmil Reyes, who was tipped by plenty of people in the offseason to have a big year, but he has struggled with injuries, so it will be interesting to see how he does now that he is healthy.
Triston McKenzie gets the call to the hill for this contest and he is a guy with a ton of upside, but he has struggled with consistency at times and the Oakland A’s are the type of team who can pounce on misplaced pitches.

Free Oakland Athletics vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
The Athletics are a much better team and given the pitching matchup I think we are getting a good price here at -130, as I do not trust McKenzie at this point to be able to go out there and shut down this decent A’s batting lineup.
