The starting pitchers for Sunday’s game have yet to be announced, and there might have to be some fine-tuning for both clubs depending on their playoff schedules, but if the rotations hold up, it’ll be Mike Clevinger (2.39 ERA) taking the mound for Cleveland opposite Max Scherzer (2.92 ERA). Clevinger has the Tribe at 14-6 this year with the Over at 11-9. The Nats are just 14-13 behind Scherzer with the total split at 12-12-3.
Although Washington have clinched an NL Wild Card, they still have home-field advantage left to play for. The Tribe are in the thick of a three-horse race for the two AL Wild Card berths. OF Jose Ramirez (.811 OPS) is back in the lineup after sitting out a month with a broken hand, but 2B Jason Kipnis (.715 OPS) had surgery on Tuesday and will miss the rest of the season with the same ailment.
