Indians improve to 7-1 against Cy Young pitchers

May 19, 2013 |
The Cleveland Indians have been an awesome bet against Cy Young Award winning pitchers.

The Indians are now 7-1 (4-4 over/under) against former Cy Young winners after defeating Felix Hernandez and the Seattle Mariners 6-0 Sunday.

Any $100 bettor would be up $888 if they had wagered on Cleveland in each of these games.

Opposing Cy Young pitchers are a combined 1-7 with a lofty 8.20 ERA against the Tribe.

Cleveland suffered its only loss to a former Cy Young quality pitcher back on April 14 to Jake Peavy and the Chicago White Sox.

The Indians will get their next crack at a top pitcher when the Detroit Tigers' Justin Verlander is projected to take the hill at Progressive Field Wednesday.
