Cleveland vs. Pittsburgh . . . it's a rivalry that's always eventful. Here's hoping for a great weekend!
Trevor Bauer will take the mound for the Tribe and is looking to rebound from two poor starts in a row. Bauer has given up 11 earned runs over his last ten innings of work, which has bumped his ERA up to 3.96. Bauer has done well on the road this year, with a 1.69 ERA in seven starts away from home.
The Pirates counter with tall right-hander Charlie Morton. Morton is a sinker-baller who works fast and pitches to contact. He is 6-1 on the year with a 4.28 ERA and has also struggled recently, including a June 21st outing against the Nationals where he lasted only 2/3 of an inning while giving up nine earned runs.
