Indians vs A’s Free Pick April 21, 2012

April 21, 2012

Baseball is already three weeks into the season and many teams are trying to find the lineup that will win them the necessary games to reach the post season. Tonight the Cleveland Indians are out west to take on the Oakland A’s in the second game of a three game set. The Indians have an overall record of 7-5 and are 6-1 on the road.

The Indians started the season just 1-4 at home and have won six of their last seven, all part of a nine-game road trip. The Indians defeated the A’s in the opener Friday night 4-3. The Indians have been led by the consistent bat of Jack Hannahan. In Friday’s first game of the series, he drove in three runs and leads the team with 11 RBI’s all from either the eighth or the ninth spot in the batting order.

Jeanmar Gomez is scheduled to start for Cleveland and is 0-0 on the season with an ERA of 2.25. He pitched twice last season against the A’s and was 1-0 with an ERA of 0.79. The A’s will us Brandon McCarthy on the mound. McCarthy is 0-2 on the season with an ERA of 3.60. On Monday, he gave up 5 runs, allowing 11 hits over seven innings in a loss to the Los Angeles Angels 6-0.

Last year McCarthy made one appearance against the Indians and allowed five hits and two runs and struck out 10, but still took the loss 2-1. Friday night’s loss to Cleveland ended the A’s three game win streak. Yoenis Cespedes is continuing to pay dividends for the A’s. He was 3 for 5 last night knocking in two runs. He leads the A’s with 14 RBIs.

The total is set at 7 with the A’s favored -130 and the Indians at +110. Gomez will take control of the game on the mound and the Indians will take this with the total UNDER.
