You'd hate to see the face he makes if he *doesn't* get an extension

Felix Hernandez - RHP Corey Kluber - RHP


Felix Hernandez is one of the best pitchers in the game. Fortunately, so it Corey Kluber. Last time out, the Klubot carried a perfect game into the 6th inning until it was broken up by a Miguel Olivo single. Of course, he went on to lose the shutout thanks to one of the worst plays ever seen by anyone. Still, it was one of the best games of his career, yet he made need to top that if he wants to beat King Felix.

The Tribe offense has to step up its game, which will be tough seeing as how they're still fiddling around in the dickerson department. It wouldn't be shocking to see this one decided by one run on either side of the coin.

Let's Go Tribe!
