    976 Cleveland at Chicago Cubs

    The Indians have now lost seven straight games. In a season of 60 a streak of this kind can really be a killer. And that’s what has happened as just a week or so ago the Tribe was battling for first place in the division. How it’s hanging on to the last Wild Card spot. 

    Aaron Civale has a 55 average game score his last seven starts, but five of those came against the dregs of the league when hitting righties. Detroit has a wRC+ of 84, Kansas City 90, Milwaukee 81, Pittsburgh 62 and St Louis 96. All below the league average of 100. The Cubs sit at 102 wRC+ on the season. 

    Jon Lester isn’t nearly the pitcher he used to be, but he has had no problem with the Tribe. In his last five starts against the Indians his average game score was 64, with a 1.73 ERA. He is coming off his best start of the season, and Cleveland’s wRC+ vs lefties is 75.
