Game one was a fast moving low scoring pitcher’s duel. One got away from Marco Estrada for a 2 run homer and that was the difference.
The Jays certainly had their chances though and the Indians got to show off their bullpen.
First mover advantage goes to the Indians but the Jays are the favourites in game two.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Jays created plenty of chances against Corey Kluber but could not push any runs across the board. Then once the Indians bullpen got involved it was strikeout city.
Still it is better to gear up after a night of hits for the likes of Encarnacion and Donaldson than a bunch of O fors. Devon Travis left the game with a leg injury so he is unlikely to play in this one.
There is still more than enough juice in the lineup.
J.A. Happ may not have been the Jays best pitcher during the regular season but he was their biggest winner.
He has been so consistent and was solid in G2 against Texas.
The time off means the bullpen is well rested and they are expecting Francisco Liriano to be a go after coming off the concussion list.
They did not have to use the pen at all in the opener so everyone is available.
The Indians are generally not about style points but they still looked pretty sharp in game one and most important they got the victory with their ace on the hill.
A loss wold have really turned the series in a hurry.
All of the offense was supplied by SS Francisco Lindor as the Indians got just enough to win the game. They will likely need a lot more in G2.
Josh Tomlin is effective but definitely not dominant. In all likelihood he would be on longman duty were it not for all the injuries the Indians have had to the rotation.
He actually pitches better on the road too.
He took on the Jays twice this season and beat them on the road but got roughed up at home. He is the reason they are the home dogs.
Cleveland is hoping to get just enough from Tomlin so they can turn it over to their bullpen which has been great this season and playoffs.
Andrew Miller and Cody Allen got 8 outs, six via strikeout.

Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
The Indians struck first but holding back the Jays lineup is going to prove difficult two days in a row.
I am expecting the Jays to be able to regroup and put some runs on the board early which totally changes the face of this one.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Toronto -125
When Happ starts the Jays are 25-8 this season. A lot of it is his performance but also the fact that they score for him. An average of 6 runs per starts.
He is not going to dominate the Indians but will let the Jays play with a comfortable lead and win the ball game.
