2018 Junior League Division Championship Game 3: Astros @ Indians

Wild Thing 2- Redux

I expect that’s the last time I’ll get to play that clip this Season. The Indians are facing elimination down 2 – 0 and while the Braves got their miracle last night, the Rockies did not.

The Indians are going to start Mike Clevinger (R, 13 – 8, 3.02 ERA). In 2017 he made 2 appearance in the Divisional Series lasting a mere 1.1 Innings counting both. He allowed 3 Runs on 2 Hits, a Walk, and a Home Run ending with a whopping 13.50 ERA. He throws Fastballs and Sliders.

The ‘Stros will send Dallas Keuchel (L, 12 – 11, 3.74 ERA) to the mound. Last year he made 5 appearances in the Playoffs with 2 Wins an 2 Losses. He pitched a total of 27.2 Innings and allowed 12 Runs on 25 Hits and 2 Home Runs for an ERA of 3.58. He pitches, Fastballs, Cutters and Curves.

I fully expect the ‘Stros to finish the sweep. The real question is if Clevinger lasts more than an Inning.
