USA – MLB
Chris Bassitt is 10-2 with a 3.28 ERA and .217 BAA through 19 starts on the year. Those numbers are even better when playing at home, as he holds a 2.55 ERA and .197 BAA in eight home starts this season.
Cleveland has one of the weakest hitting offenses in the league, and entering Saturday their .230 batting average as a collective was the 2nd-lowest in the American League. They tend to rely a bit too much on the home run ball to get them the runs, and Bassitt has only allowed 11 home runs through 118.0 innings this season.
The Indians have dropped each of their past six as a road underdog, six in a row against the AL West and eight straight against teams with a winning record. Cleveland has not been good against above .500 teams the last month, and won’t be able to handle Bassitt here.
