4-unit Play Take #930 Cleveland Indians over New York Mets (7:05pm EST) American League teams have beaten up on National League teams once again this season. It hasn't been talked about much in 2013 due to the new scheduling dynamics, but the AL has once again shown its dominance. It's been even more pronounced in AL parks where the NL has inserted incompetent designated hitters into the lineup. NL teams just don't have that extra hitter and it's usually someone batting somewhere around .200 or so. That's the case today for the New York Mets, who are already down their best hitter in David Wright. The Mets are playing lots of younger players and looking ahead to next season. That should make it easier on today's starter Scott Kazmir, who has been inconsistent this season. He can dominate at times and implode at other times. But with a weak hitting Mets lineup in front of him, I think we'll see the good Kazmir today. Zack Wheeler goes for the Mets and he's pitched pretty well in his rookie season. However, this will probably be the toughest lineup he has seen this season. The only other outing he had in an AL park was against the White Sox, where he surrendered four runs in just 5 1/3 innings of work. He's going to be a good one, but he'll get touched up from time to time as he learns how to pitch in this league. The Indians have been amazing at home this season with a 42-27 record, and I expect them to get the job done today against a weak NL club in the Mets.
