The MLB is back in action today as the Cleveland Indians will clash with the Kansas City Royals.
Zach Plesac will get the nod for the Indians in this game. And the Royals will counter with Matt Harvey.
Cleveland Indians Form
The Indians are heading into this series after a 7-2 defeat in the last game of the series against the Cardinals.
However, this Cleveland team is still on the top spot as they are tied with the White Sox.
The Indians ended the game with a total of four hits in the game with Tyler Naquin’s second homer of the year accounting for their two runs in the second inning. On the mound, it was Aaron Civale that withstand the loss as he conceded five runs on eight hits with two walks and three strikeouts over six innings of work. For this game, Zach Plesac will get the nod and that will be his fourth start of the season. He comes in 1-1 with a 1.29 ERA, a 0.667 WHIP, two walks and 24 strikeouts over 21 innings of work this season
Kansas City Royals
The Royals played with a high level of dedication and quality in the series against the White Sox. However, they ended up with one win sandwiched by a pair of walk-off losses after falling Sunday. Therefore, the Royals are placed on the bottom of the AL Central with eight games behind the White Sox and Indians for the top spot. On the mound, it was Tyler Zuber that took the loss as he allowed three runs (two earned) on one hit with one walk and one strikeout in one-third of an inning. Matt Harvey will get the nod in this game as he has a 4.09 ERA and 1.23 WHIP.
Cleveland needs to find a way to get their offence going with more consistency. And on the other side, the Royals are a team that is going through a transition. Therefore, the expectation from them this season is not spectacular. Take the Indians to win this one.
