Stephen Nover's Friday Dominator

Cleveland vs. Pittsburgh, 07/03/2015 19:05 EDT, Score: 5 - 2

Money Line: -131 Pittsburgh

Sportsbook: Betonline

Result: Loss

The Pirates have won 26 of 37 games since May 22 and starting pitcher Charlie Morton is a good fit against Cleveland.

Morton is a ground ball pitcher, doesn't walk many batters and can be tough on lefties. He also is a much better nighttime pitcher.

Morton is on an Interleague scoreless streak of 12 innings. The Indians have never faced him.

The Indians are going with Trevor Bauer, who is close to being the opposite of Morton. Bauer can strike out a lot of batters, but command remains a huge concern. He is 1-3 with a 7.40 ERA during his last four starts.

The Pirates have won their last seven Interleague games.
