The Arizona Diamondbacks have raised a lot of eyebrows in the early going of the 2017 MLB season, as the D-backs are the owners of the best offense in baseball. They’ll look to keep up their high-scoring ways against the Cleveland Indians on Sunday.
– Shark Bites
- The OVER is 3-0-1 in the Indians last four interleague games.
- The OVER is 5-0-1 in the Diamondbacks last 6 games.
- The UNDER is 3-1-1 in the last 5 meetings.
Corey Kluber and Patrick Corbin are expected to start for the Tribe and Diamondbacks, respectively. Kluber (0-0, 7.50 ERA) surrendered three home runs in a no-decision against Texas on Monday. The former Cy Young Award winner through 109 pitches and allowed five runs in that span.
Corbin (0-1, 4.50) struggled to a 5-13 mark and 5.15 ERA in 2016 but won a spot in the rotation after boasting a solid spring. The hurler has never faced the Indians but he hasn’t been very successful in interleague play, going 2-4 with a 5.00 ERA.
Arizona’s solid offense has paved the way for a litany of OVERs, as the OVER/UNDER is 5-0-1 in the Diamondbacks’ first six tilts in 2017.
