The Texas Rnagers will look to play spoiler this Tuesday, and prevent the Indians from going back over the .500 mark, when the two go head to head at Progressive Field in Cleveland Ohio.
The Texas Rangers have not been on a good run recently, but they did manage to shock the Red Sox in the first game of their series by a score of 10-1 cashing in as a +270 underdog in the process.
This Rangers team will now move on to the Cleveland Indians this Tuesday, and it will be interesting to see whether or not they can pull off a similar shock here against the Indians, as the home team will once again be a prohibitive favorite.
Taylor Hearn has shown some great stuff in his limited starts this year putting up a pretty impressive 3.97 ERA and he has been doing quite well recently as well, only allowing 5 runs in his last 3 starts.
The Indians will come into this series feeling awfully good about themselves having just swept the LA Angels and moving to within 10 games of the Chicago White Sox at the top of the AL Central.
Cleveland’s offense is not ranked too well, sitting at around 20th overall with 536 runs scored, but that might be about to change as they have started to get healthy and with the likes of Jose Ramirez and Franmil Reyes in the heart of this lineup they should start consistently scoring runs sooner rather then later.
Eli Morgan heads to the hill this Tuesday, and he will look to shutdown the Texas Rangers batting lineup coming into this contest with a 2-5 record and a 5.80 ERA. Morgan might be able to do just that even though his overall numbers are not that great, as he comes into this one off the back of a mighty impressive outing against the Minnesota Twins going 6 innings without giving up a single run.

Free Texas Rangers vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
The Rangers have been able to cause some pretty big upsets lately, but I do not see them getting the better of the Indians here even with one of their better pitchers going to the hill. The Indians have the far better batting lineup, and they counter Hearn with Eli Morgan who was quite good last time out and I think he could have a repeat of that performance here on Tuesday.
The Indians are decent sized favorites here, so I am going to roll with them on the runline here, as I think they should be able to cover the 1.5 run spread and get these odds closer to even money.
