All the trends really point to fading Chris Sale Boston has been a dumpster fire this year really a'lot like the Philadelphia Phillies a ton of big name hitters and no pitching a sub par bullpen that can not hold leads and you got a Boston team that is floundering around .500. Books started out the year juicing Sale heavy but have since gone the other way.
Chris Sale comes in 6-11 with a 4.41 ERA he has 206 strike outs and just 35 walks and is off a game where he pitched 4 hit shutout over 8 innings while striking out 13 batters. The trouble with Sale is he is so up and down the 2 starts prior he went 9 innings total giving up 14 earned runs.
Boston also comes into Tuesday's game very desperate as they fall farther behind the Tampa Bay Rays and New York Yankees in the American League East. Boston has lost 3 straight games and are 2-8 over their last 10 games if things continue their will be a shakeup in management in Boston this coming just one year after a world series.
Indians are the polar opposite this year making due with losing their 3 top pitchers to injury and or trade and finding ways to win. Cleveland has won 8 of their last 10 and look to make up ground on the Minnesota Twins who are hot on their heels. Indians send Mike Clevinger to the mound he is 7-2 with a 3.02 ERA he has 89 strike outs and 20 walks.
