10-unit Play Take Tampa Bay Rays/Cleveland Indians UNDER 7 (8:05pm EST) It's the AL Wild Card game tonight in Cleveland as the Indians host the Tampa Bay Rays. The Rays earned their way to this game by beating the Rangers in a one-game playoff on Monday night 5-2. David Price dominated the opposition in that game and we expect to see another great pitching performance by Tampa Bay starter Alex Cobb tonight. Cobb is one of the more underrated pitchers in the league as he comes in 11-3 with a 2.76 ERA and 1.15 WHIP in 22 starts. He relishes big spots and they don't get much bigger than today in a winner take all game. His mound opponent is Danny Salazar, a 23-year old who has pitched lights out since coming up from the minors two months ago. He has a 3.12 ERA and 1.13 WHIP and is striking out a whopping 11.2 batters per nine innings. The Rays have never seen Salazar, so he should have the advantage the first couple of times through the order. Both of these can hit, but their lineups aren't overpowering. If either one should happen to struggle, the managers won't hesitate to call to the pen given the circumstances. Runs are generally hard to come by in these types of games and with these two pitchers going, we should stay Under the total tonight.
