It's Kluber time!

The Indians turn to Corey Kluber in their series finale against the Astros. Kluber is making his fifth start of the year, owning a 4.28 ERA with 27 strikeouts over 27 1/3 innings. The right-hander is coming off a gem of a last outing, pitching a shutout against the White Sox last Friday.

The Astros counter with right-hander Mike Fiers. The 31-year-old has a 5.40 ERA over 15 innings this season. He did win 11 games last year for Houston and has a 2-0 career record against the Tribe.
