Of late, the Indians best hitter has been Michael Brantley with 4 home runs and 11 RBIs over his past 13 games. Currently Brantley is batting .300 with 9 homers and 52 RBIs.

Cleveland is scoring at an averages of 4.85 runs a game, which is No. 8 overall with a team batting average of .261. The Indians team ERA is 3.77 which is No. 4 in baseball.

Colorado is 10-3 in its last 13 games on the road against a team playing above .500.
