The Cleveland Indians look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Indians have scored nine runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Indians have won five of their last six games when scoring more than three runs. Jason Kipnis leads Cleveland with 121 hits and 38 RBI while Michael Brantley and Carlos Santana have combined for 98 RBI. The Cleveland Indians have split their last eight home games. Corey Kluber takes the hill, and he’s 5-10 with a 3.38 ERA and 159 strikeouts this season. Kluber is 4-3 with a 3.30 ERA and 77 strikeouts in his career against the White Sox.
The White Sox are 3-9 in their last 12 games as a road underdog and 1-4 in Quintanas last 5 starts. The Indians are 2-6 in their last 8 Friday games and 6-14 in Klubers last 20 starts. The Indians are 2-5 in Klubers last 7 starts vs. White Sox.
The White Sox have won five of their last six road games and have a pitcher who has allowed three or less earned runs in nine of his last 10 starts on the hill. Kluber? Sure, he strikes out a ton, but has won just six of his last 20 outings. No, thanks. I'm taking the big boy plus money with a pitcher who has had better results.
