The Indians are already 2-0 in these series and they can make a big step towards to World Series if they win today.
Right-handed pitcher Trevor Bauer will be starting for Cleveland on Monday. He made 28 starts this year where he is 12-8 with a 4.26 ERA. Lonnie Chisenhall is the main man in Cleveland, hitting seven times in the postseason with 2 runs. Francisco Lindor also has 7 hits with 2 homers and two runs.
The Blue Jays aren’t playing well on offense at all and they will be looking to change that tonight. They only had 1 run throughout the first two games of these series. Josh Donaldson has hit the ground running in the postseason. He has 12 hits with 5 runs and he is the leading force on offense. The Blue Jays haven’t been impressive offensively overall and the Indians’ pitcher may give them hard time again. I believe this will be a low-scoring game which will be decided in the 5th or 6th inning by a single run or two.
