Indians @ Orioles

The Indians turn to their ace Corey Kluber in Friday's series opener in Baltimore and here's hoping they give him some run support. Kluber enters the game with just a 3-9 record, but has been given an average of just 2.27 runs per game from his offense. His solid 3.65 ERA, 2.79 xFIP, and 10.1 K/9 all show how unlucky his win-loss totals have been.
The Orioles will counter with left-hander Wei-Yin Chen, who is 3-4 with a 2.89 ERA. Chen threw eight scoreless innings in his last start, striking out nine and allowing just four hits.
The Tribe has a .611 winning percentage (99-63, wow!) against the Orioles since 1995 and here's hoping that success continues this weekend.
