Tribe starter Corey Kluber gave up the lone run on seven hits through six innings to get the win. Cleveland produced ten hits and walked twice with Mike Napoli, Francisco Lindor and Jason Kipnis driving in runs. Carlos Carrasco toes the rubber against the White Sox on Wednesday for the second time this year. Carrasco defeated the Angels 13-3 last time out with all three runs scoring on eight hits in seven frames.

Cleveland are 23-9 in their last 32 home games and are 10-3 in Carrasco’s last 13 Wednesday starts while the over is 18-7-1 in Carrasco’s last 26 home starts.
