Indians (Quantrill, 5-3, 3.04) vs. Twins (Jax, 2-3, 6.44)
It is Quantrill vs Jax today, two young starters going in very different directions. Quantrill face the Twins in his last start, allowing only 1 run over 7.2 innings. His previous start against Boston was his worst, but he is 4-1 since the All-star break with a 1.97 ERA.
For the Twins starter, Jax, the season has not unfolded kindly. His starts are much worse through August and September, and while he still pitches for some length, he has given up far too many runs.
Neither team is performing at their peak at the moment. Cleveland has been the lightest hitting team in the MLB lately, and their bullpen is not quite as good as usual. The Twins scored 6 in the second game yesterday, but I don’t see that happening against Quantrill. Their offense is 22nd in the league at the moment, and their bullpen is slightly improved of late.
This game comes down to starting pitching for me. Quantrill has been dependable and has proven success vs. the Twins. Take Cleveland, a small underdog to win.
