Carrasco, Indians Excelling on the Road

Starting their second half in a very comfortable spot, the Indians opened as big favorites for their road matchup with the Athletics in a game they’ll call upon Carlos Carrasco (10-3, 3.44 ERA). The Venezuelan hasn’t been pegged with a loss since June 11 and his 2.38 road ERA ranks him fifth among AL starters who have more than 40 innings pitched away from home.

SHARK BITES
  • The Indians are 8-1 SU in Carlos Carrasco’s last 9 road starts.
  • The Athletics are 12-28 SU in their last 40 games when opening a series.
  • The Indians are 9-2 SU and on the runline in their last 11 games on the road.

A 26-16 straight-up record on the road helped the Tribe reacquire their lead in the AL Central and has helped Cleveland backers recoup some of the losses they’ve accumulated if they’ve been betting the Indians at home.

Another profitable spot for the Indians has been the UNDER when Carrasco takes the mound away from C-Town. Seven of his last nine road starts have gone UNDER their closing totals.

Pitching for the A’s today will be Sonny Gray (4-4, 4.00 ERA). The fifth-year righty has gone through some growing pains his last two seasons but there’s no doubting his immense talent. Gray has a 3.49 ERA in eight outings at the Coliseum this year and he’s pitched a total of 14 innings in his last two starts in Oaktown.
