The Indians host the Blue Jays this afternoon in the rubber match of the weekend series, and it’s a marquee pitching matchup. Corey Kluber (13-8, 3.15) has been dominant over his last seven starts for the Indians, posting a 1.65 ERA while going 5-0. Squaring off against Kluber will be 25-year-old Marcus Stroman (9-5, 4.63).
Stroman has improved significantly from a rough first half, boosting his K rate from 6.4 K/9 in the first half to 10.3 in the second half and his ERA is 3.82 in six second half starts vs. an uncharacteristic 4.89 mark before the All-Star Break.
The line-ups are below and first pitch is scheduled for 1:10 PM ET.
