Cleveland Indians (35-29, 15-18 Away) at Chicago White Sox (22-42, 10-20 Home)

MLB: Wednesday, June 13, 2018, Guaranteed Rate Field, Chicago, Illinois, 8:10 PM ET

The Cleveland Indians was in a poor run of results of three consecutive losses to the Minnesota Twins, but they responded well with five victories in the next six games, keeping the top spot in the AL Central safe. On the other hand, the Chicago White Sox are the second weakest team in the division alongside the Kansas City Royals, and although they recorded some notable wins lately including a pair over the Boston Red Sox, the hosts are the underdogs here.

The pitching matchup for Wednesday’s tilt will give us Trevor Bauer for the Cleveland Indians against the Chicago White Sox’s Dylan Covey. First pitch was set for 8:10 PM ET.

The Indians opened the series with Chicago with a convincing win

Cleveland ended the three-game series with the Detroit Tigers in style, winning 9-2 before defeating the 4-0 victory over the Chicago White Sox in the opening game of the current series. The Indians kept Chicago’s offense at bay and allowed them just two bases and two hits, winning 12 bases in return, and thanks to a solid offensive display in the fourth innings when they scored three runs, the visitors celebrated a win.

Trevor Bauer is listed as a starting pitcher against the Chicago White Sox, and he’s coming from a 17-9 record in 2017, a 4.19 ERA, a 1.37 WHIP, 60 walks, and 196 strikeouts in 32 games in total. Bauer started 13 games in this season and has five wins and four losses as he pitched 86 innings, allowing 70 hits and 32 runs with 29 walks and 109 strikeouts. The Indians are 4-1 in Bauer’s last five starts; 5-1 in Bauer’s previous six starts with four days of rest, while they are 20-8 in Bauer’s last 28 starts following a Quality Start in his last appearance.

The White Sox are looking to improve after a poor offensive performance in the opener with Cleveland

Chicago surprised many with a couple of victories in a three-game series with the Boston Red Sox and escaped from the bottom of the AL Central for the moment, but the White Sox fell short against the Indians, failing to score a single run. The White Sox couldn’t make the things going offensively as the Twins completely shut them down, so a pair of bases and two hits must be considered as a disappointing effort.

Dylan Covey is set to start against the Cleveland Indians, and he’s coming from a 0-7 record in 2017, a 7.71 ERA, a 1.67 WHIP, 34 walks, and 41 strikeouts in 18 games overall. Covey started five games in this campaign and has two wins and one loss as he pitched 28 innings, allowing 25 hits and 11 runs with 11 walks and 28 strikeouts. The White Sox are 5-1 in Covey’s last six home starts; 2-6 in Covey’s previous eight starts with four days of rest, while they are 0-6 in Covey’s last six starts vs. American League Central opponents.

Trends:

Cleveland:

  • 5-1 in their last six games vs. a right-handed starter
  • 14-3 in their last 17 games played on Wednesday
  • 40-13 in their last 53 vs. American League Central rivals
  • 20-7 in their last 27 during game three of a series

Chicago:

  • 8-22 in their last 30 games played on Wednesday
  • 3-11 in their last 14 vs. American League Central rivals
  • 14-32 in their last 46 games vs. a right-handed starter

Cleveland won ten out of the previous 11 H2H meetings including the last five, while the Indians were victorious in the past five duels at the Guaranteed Rate Field. The Indians are 5-1 in Bauer’s last six starts vs. White Sox and the recent record is pretty much on their side, so I am backing the visitors to get a victory on this one. For those who prefer playing on the points, under is 4-1 in Bauer’s last five road starts vs. White Sox.
