Comerica Park will come alive once again on Sunday as the Cleveland Indians and the Detroit Tigers finish their MLB series.
In the Friday opener, the Indians took a 4-1 win. On Saturday, Detroit secured a 4-2 walk-off win in 12 innings.
Corey Kluber will be taking the mound for the Indians on Sunday. Over his 91.2 innings and 9-2 record this year, Kluber has a 1.96 ERA with 95 Ks and 10 BBs.
Francisco Lindor leads the Indians in hitting this year with 73 hits, 46 runs, 14 homers and 35 RBI entering the weekend. On Saturday, Lindor went 0-for-5.
Over on the Tigers’ side, they’re going with Artie Lewicki on Sunday. In his 18.2 innings and 0-1 record this year, Lewicki has a 3.86 ERA with 14 Ks and eight walks.
Nick Castellanos is the top hitter for the Tigers, bringing 83 hits, 32 runs and 34 RBI into the weekend. In game two, Castellanos had one hit in six at-bats.
The Indians are 19-7 in their last 26 in game three of a series and 6-0 in Kluber’s last six Sunday starts. Cleveland is also 10-3 in Kluber’s last 13 road starts and 45-17 in his last 62 starts.
Meanwhile, the Tigers are 4-1 in the last five during game three of a series and 4-12 in their last 16 Sunday games. The under is 4-1 in Detroit’s last five in game three of a series and 15-5-1 in the last 21 versus a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15.
Kluber has been on a commanding roll lately, with just one earned across his last three starts in a span of 19.1 innings. As for Lewicki, he’s been okay as a reliever but has had a few bad outings here and there. With Kluber on the hill, there’s no way I’m picking against the Indians.
