Indians Look To Cut In To AL Central Deficit Before All-Star Break

Posted by Dale “Skip” Lalonde on 7/11/2013 6:56:34 PM

The Cleveland Indians have struggled with consistency over the past couple of months, but could still put their selves in a good position in the American League Central heading in to the All-Star break. The Indians will host the Kansas City Royals in a three-game set this online sports betting weekend, hoping that they can narrow the deficit behind the first-place Detroit Tigers in the division.

Cleveland enters this online sportsbook series seven games above .500 as the home team, and have an excellent chance to add to that record against a Kansas City team that hasn’t been great on the road. Corey Kluber will make the start for the Indians, where he will look to give Cleveland a shot at a third-straight win with him on the mound. Kluber hasn’t gotten the decision in either of his last two starts, but the Indians have won each of them and are 5-1 in his last six appearances. The Royals will counter with Bruce Chen, who will make his first start of the season after working the bullpen to this point. Chen’s 2.41 ERA isn’t bad at all, but it will be interesting to see how far he can last.

Kansas City should feel a little more comfortable in the second game of this series with Jeremy Guthrie on the mound, as they have won the last two games that he has started including a 6-5 win over Cleveland at the beginning of the month. Guthrie was tagged for five earned runs in 6.1 innings of work in that start, but he got the job done opposite Scott Kazmir, who took the loss in that game and will start opposite Guthrie again. Kazmir is 4-4 with a 4.74 ERA on the year, but the team has lost five of the last seven games he has started including the last two in which he wasn’t charged with the decision.

The Indians will turn to one of their hottest starters to try and wrap up this sports betting series on a high note, as Ubaldo Jimenez goes to the mound with a 7-4 record and 4.37 ERA. Cleveland has won five of the last six games that Jimenez has started, and he is coming off his best performance over that span having shut out the Toronto Blue Jays over six innings in a 3-0 win. However, Kansas City will also be turning to its hottest starter in James Shields, who they have won eight-straight with even though he has only gotten the decision in two of them. Shields is 2-0 over those eight-straight wins, but his 3.12 ERA is testament to how good he has been and if the Royals’ bats get going there is a good chance they can steal this one and narrow the gap behind the Indians for second place in the division.
