The MLB is back in action on Tuesday evening as the Cleveland Indians will clash with the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in game one of a short two-game series. The Indians head into this game as they have lost 7 of their last 10 games. And on the other side, the Brewers are in similar form as they have lost 6 of their last 10 games. The Indians will give the nod to Corey Kluber and the Brewers will give a chance to the experienced pitcher Wade Miley.
Cleveland Indians Form
It seems that the Cleveland Indians are the top team in the American League Central Division. This might sound strange as they have lost 7 of their last 10 games and their record is 17-17. These stats just show how bad this division is at the moment. They head into these brief two-game set after being beaten by the Yankees in New York. The offence in the last 10 games was good as they have averaged solid 6.90 runs per game over their last 10 games. The Indians away form so far is at 3.60 runs per game and have allowed 3.80 runs per game on the road this year.
On the offensive side of the game, the Indians are placed on the 13th spot in the league in scoring, putting up an average of 4.59 runs per game, while also being placed on the 16th spot in hitting at .241. The Indians are the 2nd best team in homers with a total of 48. On the mound, their form has been very average as they are on the 15th spot in the league in ERA at 4.12, while also holding the 6th spot in WHIP at 1.17 and 13th in K’s with 301.
Milwaukee Brewers Form
The Milwaukee Brewers will have a role to play in the National League Central race but they need to find their offence. The Brewers head into this game after a 9-0 home loss. The Brewers record is 4-6 over their last 10 games and has averaged just 2.70 runs per game. The Brewers home form has averaged 3.71 runs per game and has allowed 4.47 runs per game here at home for the year.
On the offensive side of the game, the Brewers are in a poor form as they are placed on the 27th spot in the league in scoring, putting up 3.77 runs per game, while also sitting at the 21st spot in hitting at .235. The Brewers are 15th in homers with a total of 38. On the mound, their stats are very good as they enter this game as the 4th best team in the league in ERA at 3.40, while also ranking 7th in WHIP at 1.23 and 16th in K’s with 283.
Both of these teams are in a bad form at the moment. But I think that the Indians get back on track in this one as they are the better team on the mound. Based on the current statistical data and form, Cleveland is the better team as they have averaged 6.90 runs per game over their last 10 games. Go for the Indians!
