The Cleveland Indians and the Detroit Tigers will meet on the field at Comerica Park on Friday in a battle of division rivals.

The Indians will pin their hopes on the pitching of right hander Carlos Carrasco in this game. Carrasco has a 13-6 record and a 3.78 ERA this season.

Carrasco’s opponent in this one will be Matthew Boyd. The Tigers left hander has a 6.32 ERA to go along with a 5-8 record this season.

Carrasco bounced back from a poor start against Boston on Aug. 22 by dominating the Kansas City Royals on Sunday. The 30-year-old Venezuelan scattered six hits over seven scoreless innings and did not walk a batter while striking out eight to earn the win. Carrasco is seeing Detroit for the fifth time this season and went 3-1 with a 2.36 ERA in his first four chances, including a home start on July 7 in which he posted a season-high 11 strikeouts in seven frames.

Boyd is hoping to turn the page after a terrible August that saw him go 0-3 with a 8.75 ERA in six games – five starts. The Oregon State product could not finish three innings while surrendering seven runs against New York on Aug. 22 and was ripped for five runs in six frames at the last-place Chicago White Sox on Sunday. Boyd made two starts against Cleveland earlier in the season and went 1-1 while allowing a total of four runs in 13 2/3 innings.

Oddsmakers currently have the Indians listed as 252-moneyline favorites versus the Tigers, while the game’s total is sitting at 9.

The Cleveland Indians swept a doubleheader at the New York Yankees on Wednesday and managed to do it without negatively impacting their pitching rotation. The Indians will try to pull the same trick on Friday, when they open a four-game series at the Detroit Tigers with a split doubleheader.

Cleveland owns the best pitching staff in the American League and is showing that off during a seven-game winning streak in which it surrendered a total of 13 runs – seven in the last six – and earned 2-1 and 9-4 wins over the Yankees on Wednesday. The Indians dipped into their pitching depth and pulled Ryan Merritt out to start the second game against New York, allowing them to stay on rotation and keep Carlos Carrasco and Mike Clevinger in line to start at Detroit on Friday. Detroit, which counters with Matthew Boyd and Buck Farmer on the mound, is well out of the postseason race but is trying to play spoiler while coming off a series win over National League wild-card hopeful Colorado. Cleveland (76-56) owns a 6 1/2-game lead over the second-place Minnesota Twins in the AL Central and has crept to within 3 1/2 games of the Houston Astros for the best record in the AL entering Thursday.

Detroit was a 6-2 winner in its last match on the road against the Rockies. They won as +109 underdogs, while the total score of 8 made winners of UNDER bettors.
