Both of these teams have had poor seasons and are looking to get this year over. Cleveland is playing much better as of late but will have a terrible pitcher on the mound in this game. Texas will also send out a poor pitcher giving the advantage to both offenses. Look for each team to post runs in bunches leading to a big number on the score board. Final Score Prediction, Cleveland Indians win but the play is the OVER 8-5.
