Cleveland has one more chance to close the series on Wednesday when they visit Toronto for game 5.
Ryan Merritt will start as the pitcher for the Indians, making his debut in the playoffs simply because there are no other available players on the Indians’ roster. Merritt is the best prospect for Cleveland and he had 24 starts in Triple-A this season before being called to the big league.
The Blue Jays’ starter at the pitching position is Marco Estrada. He is 9-9 for the season with a 3.48 ERA. He has the advantage over Merritt with his experience but he hasn’t been spectacular and he allowed many runs throughout the course of this campaign. Estrada faced the Indians once this year, allowing 3 runs in 5 innings.
I think this game will be filled with runs and both pitchers won’t be at their best. These two teams have enough talent when it comes to hitting the ball and they will have a good opportunity to do just that tonight.
