The Cleveland Indians face the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday, August 30th at Busch Stadium for game three of a three-game series. 

The Cleveland Indians clinched a season series win on Saturday as they defeated the St. Louis Cardinals in game two of the series by the final score of 2-1. This game was tight every step of the way, and the Indians were able to prevail after 12 innings. The Indians blew out the Cardinals in game one of this series on Friday, 14-2, so Cleveland now leads the season series 2-0. The Indians improve to 21-12 with their victory on Saturday, which has them 1.0 game in front in the AL Central. The St. Louis Cardinals are now 11-13 on the year, which has them in second place in the NL Central behind the Chicago Cubs. The Indians will look for the sweep in this game, while the Cardinals will try to salvage the third game at home. 

The Cleveland Indians are set to bring right-hander Aaron Civale to the mound to face the Cardinals. Civale is 3-3 with a 3.15 ERA through his first 40.0 innings this season with the Indians. Civale allowed three earned runs through 6.0 innings in his most recent start against the Twins.

The St. Louis Cardinals will bring right-hander Adam Wainwright to the bump for Sunday's game. Wainwright is 2-0 with a 2.88 ERA through his first 25.0 innings this season with the Cards. Wainwright allowed four earned runs in 7.0 innings against the Royals in what was his worst start of the season. The veteran Wainwright will look for a bounce-back performance against the Indians when his team needs him most. 

In game three of this series, I think that both teams' starters will do well. I expect more of the same from game two of the series, and I think both pitchers will pitch deep into this one. I will take the under 8.5 here, and I think the team that makes the least amount of mistakes or earns the clutch hit late will prevail. I would not be shocked if this game went to extras as well.
