Ben Burns just doesn't want August to end! With ANOTHER sweep last night (went 3-0!), he is not just a WHITE HOT 19-4 the last 8 days, but also an INSANE 48-14 this month! This almost UNPRECEDENTED run continues Thursday with a 10* Total in NFLX + 2 more winnners in MLB! Ben's All Sport Run has now exceeded $80k! Get on board!
I'm playing CLEVELAND. The Indians go for the sweep of Minnesota this afternoon and they couldn't have asked for a better pitcher to help them pull it off. Right now, Corey Kluber is on the streak of a lifetime. I used him in his most recent start as he went 7.2 innings and gave up just one run on five hits. He struck out 10. Though Kluber did not factor into the decision, what's important is he gave his team a chance to win and they did, 2-1 over Baltimore.
I'll put Kluber's last five starts up against any stretch any pitcher has had all season. During this time, he has allowed just three runs (one of them unearned) in 39 innings, twice going the distance. The most hits he's allowed in any of those games was six. He also has a 45-5 KW ratio. Unbeaten over his last eight outings, opponents are batting just .161 against Kluber in his last six starts. He has a 1.19 ERA his last 10.
Somehow, despite being division rivals and playing Cleveland 12 times, Minnesota has avoided Kluber this season. So they may be unprepared for what they're in for.
Like Kluber, Twins starter Phil Hughes has pitched well lately. The difference is that Hughes' numbers fall well short of Kluber's over the long-term. Hughes has struggled somewhat at Target Field this season (4.76 ERA in 12 starts). Seeing as Cleveland has won five of six and Minnesota has lost five of six, it's easy to side with the better pitcher and the hotter team. 1* free play.
