Rickenbach MLB *10* Top Play OVER 7.5 in Oakland vs Cleveland @ 9:05 ET - Back to back low-scoring pitchers duels have opened up this series but that all changes today. Let's not forget that the over was 8-3 in the Indians last 11 games prior to visiting Oakland. Additionally, the over is 36-23 in A's night games this season. The key tonight is the pitching match-up. The Indians send Cody Anderson to the mound and the young right-hander has quickly come back down to earth after his phenomenal start to his career. Anderson has allowed 11 earned runs on 18 hits in his last 8 and 1/3 innings of work. He's not a big strikeout guy either and his numbers are down in that department with just 4 punch-outs in his last 15 innings of work. Each of his last two starts have flown over the total and, with the current form he's been displaying, the A's bats will come back to life tonight. However, Oakland will have a "pitching situation" of their own tonight as well. The A's send Aaron Brooks to the mound tonight and he's only made one career MLB start and that was a disastrous outing in his MLB starting debut last May. As for this season he's seen limited action out of the bullpen and he's produced an unimpressive 6.23 ERA so far. In the minors this season Brooks has a respectable 3.71 ERA but we're talking about facing minor league hitting and, on that note, his .282 BAA this season when facing minor league hitters is certainly not impressive. The Indians had been hot at the plate coming into this series and they resume the hot hitting by facing an outclassed foe on the hill tonight. Play OVER 7.5 runs in Oakland as a *10* Top Play Saturday.
