Los Angeles Angels vs. Cleveland Indians - Current Form
Both these teams are 8.5 games behind the Athletics for the second Wild Card spot in the American League as the Indians go for the three-game sweep of the Angels.
Cleveland moved to one game within .500 after pounding Los Angeles, 5-1 on Saturday as -125 favorites. Angels' star Shohei Ohtani struck out three times, while Jose Ramirez and Amed Rosario each hit home runs for Cleveland.
The Angels entered the weekend on a 25-4 run since late May against teams with losing records, but have scored a total of two runs in each of the first two losses at Cleveland.
The Indians have not won three consecutive games since before the All-Star break when they swept the Royals, while Cleveland is off back-to-back wins for the first time in August.
Los Angeles: Jose Suarez (5-6, 3.88 ERA)
The left-hander pitched well against the red-hot Yankees his last outing by allowing two earned runs and four hits in five innings of a 2-1 defeat.
Unfortunately, the Angels are 1-4 in Suarez's last five starts, while L.A. has scored three runs or fewer in the four setbacks in this span.
Cleveland: Cal Quantrill (3-2, 3.24 ERA)
Quantrill has been a reliable arm in the Cleveland rotation since the start of July by posting a 2.41 ERA in his last nine starts.
However, the Indians have lost five of Quantrill's last six starts, but Cleveland is currently on a seven-game 'under' streak when the right-hander takes the mound.
