Back home again! The Indians and Angels open up a four-game series tonight with two starting pitchers in totally different situations.
The Tribe's Corey Kluber is lurking in the American League's Cy Young and has been excellent recently, posting a 1.46 ERA over his last five starts. Kluber is just 11-8 on the year, but leads the league with a 2.79 FIP and has racked up 153 strikeouts in 151 innings.
The Angels will turn to Jhoulys Chacin, a right-hander who has struggled much of the year and would just like to stick in L.A.'s starting rotation. Chacin is 3-7 on the year with a 5.27 ERA.
