Cleveland Indians @ Chicago White Sox

Radio: WTAM


Corey Kluber obliterated the Chicago White Sox lineup last night in his first complete game of the season. The bats cooled off a bit, but they were still enough to push the Cleveland Indians to 2 games over .500 and their fourth consecutive victory. Today, Carlos Carrasco enters play having thrown 19.1 innings on the season and only allowing 5 earned runs while striking out 19 and walking 6 (with a brilliant ERA+ of 184, SSS warning). Opposite Carrasco is Mike Pelfrey, who makes his 2017 debut. The 33 year old RHP had a disappointing season last year for the Detroit Tigers, through just 119.0 innings and allowing 67 earned runs while striking out 56 and walking 46 (good for a paltry ERA+ of 82)

And now, here are the starting lineups for your Tribe:
