It took a while, but the Indians have started hitting and now have won five in a row following Wednesday's 6-1 victory over Pittsburgh. Meanwhile, the season already is a lost cause for the Pirates, who are a pitiful 4-16 and deep in last place in the NL Central. The Pirates have scored a total of five runs their last three games while allowing 20. Now they have to face Shane Bieber, who is 4-0 with a 1.30 ERA with 54 strikeouts in 34 2/3 innings. Trevor Williams goes for Pittsburgh and he allowed three runs on seven hits in five innings his last outing at Cincinnati. Cleveland has won its last seven road games and it is 40-11 its last 51 games against teams with .400 or below winning percentages. The Pirates have lost 35 of their last 52 home contests. Play the Indians on the runline.
