Angels’ starter Matt Shoemaker has yet to lose on the road in his short career getting the win in both starts, but his bloated 5.93 ERA does not impress. Either does his low innings per outing and quality start ratio in his 6 career starts. After winning 5 in a row the Angels have been floundering with one victory in their last 5 games. Pitching has been the issue with the opposition tallying 28 runs over the 5-game span. For the Indians Josh Tomlin will be making his 4 start and 5th appearance at home this season where he has shined with a sizzling 2.95 ERA striking out 20 in 21 1/3 innings. Cleveland is on a mini streak with 3 consecutive wins and are a stellar 22-11 at home in 2014.
Take the Cleveland Indians -105.
