2018 Junior League Division Championship Game 2: Indians @ Astros

Wild Thing 2

Well, in the movies.

In real life the Indians are down 1 – 0 to the ‘Stros which is significant in a short Series like a Division Championship but not unexpected for an away game.

The ‘Stros will send Gerrit Cole (R, 15 – 5, 2.88 ERA) to the mound. The last time he appeared post-Season was in 2015 when he was with the Pirates where he racked up a loss allowing 4 Runs, 2 Home Runs, and 1 Walk for an ERA of 7.20. He throws Curves and Sliders in addition to Heat.

Indians wil counter with Carlos Carrasco (R, 17 – 10, 3.38 ERA). Last year he pitched 5.2 scoreless Innings in the Division Series, issuing 3 Walks in the process. He’s a Fastball / Slider guy.
