Cleveland Indians
Indians RH Corey Kluber (2-0, 0.00 ERA)

Kluber starts on three days’ rest for the first time in his career because of Bauer’s early departure, pushing rookie Ryan Merritt back a day if Game 5 is necessary. The 2014 AL Cy Young Award winner and also a candidate to capture the prize this year gave up only nine hits over his first two turns this postseason, walking five while registering 13 strikeouts. Kluber was superb against the Blue Jays in the series opener but was tagged for five runs on seven hits and four walks over 3 1/3 innings of a loss at Toronto on July 3.

Toronto Blue Jays
Blue Jays RH Aaron Sanchez (0-0, 9.53)

Sanchez’s first career postseason start was one to forget as he surrendered six runs on three hits – two homers – and four walks over 5 2/3 innings against Texas in the AL Division Series but managed to walk away with a no-decision. That outing also took place at home, where the 24-year-old Californian went 6-1 with a 3.74 ERA in 13 turns during the regular season. Sanchez is 1-0 with a 5.06 ERA in three career games (two starts) against the Indians, including a no-decision on Aug. 20 in which he yielded five runs (four earned ) and four hits in four innings at Cleveland.

Cleveland vs Toronto Game 4 Prediction:

Sorry Toronto, wait till next year. The Indians despite the injury problems to their pitching have shown that they are by far the best pitching staff in the American League. That game 3 bullpen was historic. Now, they should finish off Toronto and rest up for the World Series. Taking the Indians on the money line and on the reverse run line.

Indians vs Blue Jays Game 4 Bet:

80% on Indians money line &

20% on the reverse run line (-1.5)
