This game is about who's hot and who's not. The Birds certainly aren't the hot team coming into this one. They have dropped three straight including the first two in this series. They have given up 35 runs over the three games so the bullpen is a mess and overworked, having logged 13 innings of work over the three games. Jeremy Guthrie has pitched over his head of late, but his only outing against the Tribe in his career left him with a 40.50 ERA. OUCH! Anthony Reyes came out of the pen to make his first start of the season and allowed just a single run on the road against Toronto in 6.1 innings. The Indians’ bats have caught fire and with that has come a five-game winning streak. We will ride them while they are hot at home against the O's.
