*5 Star MLB TOP Play of Day* The Houston Astros are coming off a disappointing 6-5 loss in the 13th inning against the Cincinnati Reds. The Astros fought hard all game, but missed lots of opportunities. That game didn't end until about 1:30 AM EST. The Astros then headed to Cleveland for this series, so they definitely had a late night. Cleveland is coming off losing 2 of 3 at KC. The Indians are very much in the thick of the AL Wildcard race, but they have to take advantage of games against teams like the Houston Astros. Ubaldo Jimenez starts here for the Indians, and he has a 0.42 ERA in his last 3 starts. Here's a shocking tidbit for you, Jimenez has a better ERA since the break than Clayton Kershaw. Dallas Keuchel starts for the Astros, and Cleveland has rocked lefties all year long. Houston is 1-10 in their last 11 when Keuchel is starting on 5 days of rest. They are 0-4 in his last 4 starts against a team with a winning record. The Indians are 7-1 in their last 8 home games against a lefty. Take the Indians -1.5 big.
