TWO OF MLB TOP “ACES” FACE OFF AGAIN FOR 2ND STRAIGHT TIME TONIGHT!
Well before the season the Astros and the Indians were picked to make the Playoffs, and one of the main reasons is both possess elite Starting Pitching. Tonight we get one of those rare times we see teams meet less then a week apart, and we catch the exact same Pitching matchup as well, which is always interesting as teams hitters will be very aware of the pitches each likes to throw in certain counts.
Tonight we see one of the nastiest pitchers so far all season, and amazingly he’s not even the teams #1 guy right now. The Astros send Charlie Morton to the hill, and fresh off a dominating performance on May 18th against this Tribe ballclub. He went 7 innings, allowing only (4) hits and 1 earned run (on a homer). He has been sensational his last 2 starts, going (14) innings, allowing only 1 earned run each start (both came on a solo homer), and he has (22) K’s while walking only one guy in those last 2 starts. He has allowed over 3 runs only one start all season and right now his curveball is simply “NASTY”. He has gotten a (56.7%) swing and miss rate on that pitch and it’s got hitters completely off balance on his other stuff. He beat this Tribe team (4-1) that last start, in Houston’s Minute Maid Park. Morton has a ridiculous (1.94) ERA on the season and a perfect (6-0) record.
For the Indians, they counter with Mike Clevinger, who has been really solid all year for them. He did lose that last start to these Indians, going (6.1) innings and allowing (3) earned runs, walking (4) and striking out (6). He does have (50) strikeouts in just (59) innings so far, and he’s avoided that costly home run allowed pitch, giving up only (3) dingers the entire season so far. Clevinger has a very strong (2.87) ERA as well.
LAS VEGAS ODDS: HOUSTON ASTROS (-125) over CLE INDIANS * TOTAL RUNS: (8)
GARY’S FINAL PITCH AND FREE PICK WINNER (3pm/EST earlier start time):
In this type of game we usually see Pitchers change a little from past game to try and keep hitters guessing. So the first few innings are usually “feel out” innings. Both Pitchers are in top form, and so far these two teams have met 3 times. The final scores were: (4-1, 5-4, 3-1). So for most part the Pitchers have beaten out the hitters. Morton is simply at the top of his game with that curve working as good for him as it ever has. Clevinger has given almost a solid “quality” start every start this year and I am sure he’s been chomping at the bit to return home and face this Astros team again.
I fully expect this to be a great Pitchers duel tonight, with both Starters going deep and silencing the opponents bats. With the wind tonight blowing “IN” from Centerfield, both teams will need more hits to produce runs. I expect a very low scoring game here tonight so take the “UNDER 8 RUNS (TOTAL RUNS)” Bet for this MLB game and hopefully run our Free Pick record to (14-3) overall.
Have a great day and may all your wagers be winning ones.
