Indians visit Minute Maid Park for game two of their series with the Houston Astros.
The Cleveland Indians are chasing the White Sox which means every loss is costly the way Chicago is playing. The Indians were flat in all areas in a 7-1 defeat at Houston in the series opener. Tribe starter Corey Kluber was charged with five runs on five hits and three free passes over 2.2 frames to absorb the loss. The Cleveland offense was no help with only three hits and a pair of walks with Jason Kipnis knocking in Rajai Davis with the lone run. Trevor Bauer makes his third start for the Cleveland Indians as he fills in for the injured Carlos Carrasco. Bauer picked up a 9-4 win versus Detroit last time out wit three runs plated on three hits and two BB in 5.2 frames.

The Houston Astros have been struggling in a big way to begin the season but on Monday they looked like the team of a season ago. Everything fell in line for the Stros with starter Mike Fiers looking dominant with three hits and two free passes given up through seven scoreless innings to pick up the win. The Stros mounted an eight hit, five walk attack that featured a three run double off the bat of Jose Altuve who also scored while Colby Rasmus knocked in two runs with Luis Valbuena going 2-4 and scoring twice. The Houston Astros send rookie Chris Devenski to he mound for his third career start. Devenski is 0-1 but has been outstanding with a 1.09 WHIP and 1.46 ERA over 24.2 innings.
Cleveland are 2-7 in their last 9 Tuesday games and the under is 15-5-1 in Bauer’s last 21 road starts while going 6-2 in Bauer’s last 8 starts overall. The Astros are 308 in their last 11 Tuesday games. The under is 21-5-2 in the last 28 meetings and the Indians are 16-5 in the last 21 meetings. I don’t know what to expect from Devenski but I do know if Bauer is on he won’t need much support…
