Let’s start with the Indians-
10 – 8: Record in day games this year. I would have sworn it was a lot worse than this. Seems like every time they play an afternoon tilt they lose. Apparently not. Last season they were 21-32 in afternoon games.
188: Number of runs scored and allowed by the Indians this year before first pitch today. How are they seven games over .500? Look no further than a 9-2 record in one run games.
190: Walks by Indians hitters this season. Leads the Majors.
166: Walks given up by Cleveland pitchers. Fourth most in the Majors. The moral of the story is don’t give up base-runners.
1.64: Strikeouts/Base on Balls by Indian pitchers. Dead last. To be expected with the ground ball staff we have, though that number could improve. Last year that number was 2.21.
23: Consecutive appearances by Vinnie Pestano with at least one strikeout.
0 – 4: Masterson’s record against Detroit lifetime.
6.10: Justin Verlander’s ERA in Cleveland. So there is hope.
.334: Career batting average by Miguel Cabrera against the Indians. 100 hits, 18 home runs, 59 RBI.
