The Cleveland Indians and the Tampa Bay Rays will both be trying to pick up a win on Thursday when they battle at Tropicana Field.

The Indians will trot Danny Salazar out to the mound in this one. Right hander Salazar has a 4-5 record and a 4.32 ERA this season.

Starting this game for the Rays will be Blake Snell. The left hander has a 5.10 ERA to go along with a 0-6 record this season.

Salazar has produced three strong starts since coming off the disabled list, earning one victory while allowing three runs and eight hits over 20 innings with 28 strikeouts. The 27-year-old fanned a career-high 12 in seven innings last time out against the New York Yankees but settled for a no-decision in a 2-1 loss. Corey Dickerson owns two homers in five at-bats versus Salazar, who yielded five runs (four homers) in five innings of a loss to Tampa Bay on May 16.

Snell was recalled take the spot of injured Alex Cobb (turf toe) in the rotation five days after being sent down to Triple-A Durham. The 24-year-old Seattle native permitted three runs in each of four starts during his last stint in the majors, completing more than four innings in just two of them while surrendering a home run in every game. Snell faced Cleveland once in his career, giving up three runs (two earned) over 6 2/3 innings during a loss last June.

Oddsmakers currently have the Indians listed as 135-moneyline favorites versus the Rays, while the game’s total is sitting at 8.

The Cleveland Indians were unable to create any momentum to take into a critical 11-game, 11-day road trip that begins Thursday night against the slumping Tampa Bay Rays. The American League Central-leading Indians have dropped three of their last four games after suffering a 3-2 loss to Colorado in 12 innings on Wednesday afternoon and will meet four teams in the playoff hunt on their trek.

Cleveland is 3-for-25 with runners in scoring position the past four contests and won’t have All-Star Michael Brantley (ankle) after he was placed on the 10-day disabled list, but the Indians acquired slugging outfielder Jay Bruce (29 homers) from the New York Mets late Wednesday. Danny Salazar looks to improve on a 2-0 record and 0.66 ERA at Tropicana Field when he takes the mound for Cleveland on Thursday against Blake Snell, who hopes to end a 15-start winless streak – 14 of them in 2017. While the Indians lead Kansas City by four games in the AL Central, the Rays have dropped four of their last five to fall one game out in the race for the AL’s second wild card. Brad Miller is 4-for-9 with two walks and a homer in the last three games for Tampa Bay, which managed just four runs and is 0-for-24 with runners in scoring position over the last five contests.

Tampa Bay lost its last outing, a 8-2 result against the Red Sox on August 09. Bettors who backed the Red Sox at -106 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (10) sent OVER bettors to the payout window.

The Indians were a 3-2 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Rockies. That made winners of bettors who got Colorado at 172 on the moneyline, while the total score (5) was good news for UNDER bettors.
