Two second place teams square off Thursday as both the Rays and the Indians are looking up in the standings. The Rays have fallen 2GB from the Yankees in the East while Cleveland is still trying to catch Minnesota in the Central.
Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa Bay has lost two in a row headed into Wednesday night’s tilt with the Dodgers. The Rays were beaten 5-13 by the Yankees on Sunday in what was actually their best offensive output in awhile.
The Rays have been held to 3 runs or less in 7 of the last 10 games and rank 20th in the majors in runs/game. What has helped Tampa Bay stay afloat in the East is the #1 team ERA in baseball at just 3.05.
Tampa Bay is such a favorite for Thursday as Blake Snell is up for a majority of the workload here. The Indians have hit just .162 vs. the Rays ace as a team.
Cleveland is in the midst of a long home stand but it hasn’t gone well as of late with a three game sweep just being completed by Oakland. The Indians have fallen to 7GB of the Twins in the Central pending Minnesota’s game with LA late Wednesday.
Can the Indians bats get going vs. Snell? Cleveland has put up some decent offensive numbers as of late, scoring 4+ runs in 6 of the last 10 including a 10-0 win over Baltimore on Sunday.
Adam Plutko will get the ball for Cleveland, making just his second start of the season. Plutko’s debut was a stellar one, allowing just 1 hit although it was a home run.
