We are off track for the “Indians’ Summer” plan to win the division!
By losing two games out of three to the White Sox, we are off the pace.
To get back on track, we will need to take three out of four games from either Texas or Boston.
There is really no reason why we cannot take four out of four from Texas and have an extra win in our hip pocket!
This would be a difficult task, but it certainly would be a sign of a championship caliber team to start a winning streak.
Let’s look at the pitching match-ups:
Game 1, Thursday, July 19th;
C.C. Sabathia (12-4, 3.78 ERA) vs. Kameron Loe (5-7, 5.49 ERA)
Game 2, Friday, July 20th:
Fausto Carmona (11-4, 3.77 ERA) vs. Brandon McCarthy (4-6, 5.59 ERA)
Game 3, Saturday, July 21st:
Cliff Lee (5-6, 5.67 ERA) vs. Jamey Wright (3-2, 4.31 ERA)
Game 4, July 22nd:
Paul Byrd (7-4, 4.50 ERA) vs. Robinson Tejeda (5-8, 6.68 ERA)
We absolutely have the pitching advantage in wins vs. losses and ERAs!
The time is right for our pitchers to keep their offense in the game while that offense flexes their hitting muscles!
