Corey Kluber's Cy(borg) Young campaign continues in the final road game of the season for the Indians. With three strikeouts he'd take over possession of 10th on the franchise single-season leader board. He's already got the highest total (240) of any Tribe pitcher since 1970, when teams still used four-man rotations and the DH was yet to be introduced.

Jason Kipnis is back in the lineup after missing some time with a sore hamstring. He's been moved down in the order a bit though, which isn't entirely surprising.
