Road Team Dominating When Dodgers, Indians Clash

The Los Angeles Dodgers picking up the win against the Cleveland Indians in the series opener Tuesday continues a trend of road dominance between the two squads. The traveling team has gone 8-2 SU in the past 10 meetings between the Dodgers and the Tribe with the road team outscoring their hosting adversaries 51-31 in that span.

SHARK BITES
  • The Indians are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games with Corey Kluber as the starting pitcher.
  • The Dodgers are 9-3 SU in their last 12 games against teams with winning records.
  • Corey Kluber has never issued a walk to a member of the current Dodgers lineup.

The Dodgers will send the always-consistent Brandon McCarthy to the mound on Wednesday. McCarthy has quietly been one of the better middle-rotation pitchers in baseball with a 3.28 ERA and a 51/15 K/BB ratio. The 11-year veteran has held the opposition to two runs or less in eight of his 10 starts this season and has only surrendered four home runs all year.

Opposing McCarthy will be Indians’ ace Corey Kluber. The former Cy Young winner has been solid in his two starts since coming off the 10-day DL with a back strain, allowing just three runs in 12.0 innings of work. Kluber has done a better job at keeping the ball in the yard since his return, which had been an issue for him through the first two months of the season.
