Cleveland’s Michael Brantley is headed to his first All-Star Game and appears intent on arriving there in the midst of a hot streak as the Indians host the New York Yankees on Wednesday. Furthermore, the Over is 6-1 in Indians’ last 7 home games with the total set at 7.0-8.5.
PITCHING MATCHUP: Yankees RH Brandon McCarthy (3-10, 5.01 ERA) vs. Indians RH Josh Tomlin (5-6, 4.11)
McCarthy is making his New York debut after being acquired from the Arizona Diamondbacks for Vidal Nuno last week. Expect the Yankees to give him the necessary run support on Wednesday.
Tomlin has lost four of his last five starts. He, also, can benefit from his team’s offense. Expect it as the Over is 5-0 in Tomlin’s last 5 home starts.
