Indians Need More Production Out of LineupIn their 7-2 to loss to the Houston Astros, the Cleveland Indians recorded three hits, two of which came from the top two hitters in the order.In order to leave Minute Maid Park with a victory, the Indians must receive more production out of their entire order.Jose Ramirez, Edwin Encarnacion and Josh Donaldson combined to go 0-for-11 at the plate and left six runners on base.In contrast, the heart of the Houston order went 4-for-9 Bob Gibson Jersey , drove in two runs and only left three runners on base.Stringing together hits won't be an easy task against Cole, who was 8-2 in 96.1 innings at home in the regular season.G Fiume/Getty ImagesCole is coming off a strong September in which he conceded three runs or fewer in each of his past five starts.Cleveland wasn't the most explosive offense during the stretch run of the regular season, as it only put double digits on the board twice after September 16.The key for the Indians lies at the top of the order, as Francisco Lindor and Michael Brantley must get on base in their first or second at-bat.If that occurs, the power hitters in the Cleveland order should be able to take a few runs off Cole and provide Carlos Carrasco with the necessary run support to get into a rhythm on the mound.However, that strategy will be harder to implement on the diamond as Cole turns in a similar performance to Justin Verlander's from Friday.Prediction:Houston 6, Cleveland 3Red Sox Relying On Price to Open Up 2-0 LeadAfter holding on to win Game 1 by way of a gritty bullpen effort, the Boston Red Sox turn to Price to open up a two-game series lead over the New York Yankees.Price has usually been used as a starter in the postseason , but he's also thrown in a variety of relief roles, including two appearances out of the bullpen in the ALDS against the Astros in 2017.Although he won two of his past three regular-season starts, Price wasn't perfect against the Yankees and Baltimore Orioles to close the campaign.Maddie Meyer/Getty ImagesIn his September 19 loss to the Yankees, Price gave up six runs on five hits, and the Boston bullpen went on to concede four more runs.Three of the scoring plays in Price's most recent meeting with the Yankees were home runs. Two of those came off Luke Voit's bat, while Miguel Andujar produced the other.Voit and Aaron Judge were the only two Yankees to record multiple hits in Game 1, and Judge hit a ninth-inning home run off Craig Kimbrel.If Voit and Judge thrive at the plate, it will put more pressure on a Boston lineup that received seven of its eight Game 1 hits from hitters No. 1 through No. 5.The Yankees might have to outhit the Red Sox in Game 2 if they are to achieve success against Price since Alex Cora's team scored at least four runsagainst Masahiro Tanaka in three of the four regular-season meetings with New York's Game 2 starter.Prediction:Boston 7 Mike Matheny Jersey , New York 4 Statistics obtained from Baseball Reference and Joe on Twitter,JTansey90. CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Cubs left struggling reliever Carl Edwards Jr. off their roster for Tuesday night’s NL wild-card game against the Colorado Rockies.Edwards had a 5.14 ERA in 11 September appearances. He walked 12 in seven innings.Manager Joe Maddon said Edwards also is dealing with a forearm strain.“We wanted to be very careful right now, and we thought if we did not push him right now, he would be available for the next series,” Maddon said.The Rockies had three catchers on their roster for the single-elimination game: Chris Iannetta, Drew Butera and Tony Wolters. They opted for 10 pitchers, including former Cubs closer Wade Davis, and 15 position players.“Some other clubs might have a few more tough decisions based on the , maybe some of the experience and tenure of their roster, but in our case, it was pretty straightforward,” Rockies manager Bud Black said.Reliever Pedro Strop, who has been out since Sept. 13 because of a hamstring injury, is one of 11 pitchers on Chicago’s roster for the game at Wrigley Field. Speedy outfielder Terrance Gore also is active.“I told them a couple days ago, the last two games I was telling them Sunday I wanted to be in. They said no, they were aiming for Thursday Enos Slaughter Jersey ,” Strop said. “Yesterday, I told them, ‘You know what, there (won’t be) Thursday if we don’t get Tuesday. So let me go in. Let me be available. If you find a spot for me in the game, put me in the game.'”Chicago and Colorado each dropped tiebreaker games for their respective division titles on Monday. The Cubs lost 3-1 to Milwaukee, and the Rockies fell 5-2 to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
