Corey Kluber looks to take series from Detroit Tigers

Since Tomlin is now our ace, maybe Kluber can be a serviceable #2?

The results of last night's game were, to be completely honest, entirely unexpected. If you would have told me that Josh Tomlin would pitch against Justin Verlander and best him, I would have asked you if you had been to the emergency room yet to have the large head injury inspected that was clearly making you delirious. Today, however, proves to be a much more favorable match-up for the Tribe as Corey Kluber faces off against Anibal Sanchez. Neither starter is off to a great start this season, but I would put money on Klubot finding his way faster than Sanchez does. On the offensive side of things, thanks in large part to his tremendous game last night, Lando Santana finds himself at the top of the order again. Maybe Tito really has turned a corner?! Either way, sit back and enjoy some day baseball. Here is the starting nine for your Tribe:
