Scott Kazmir takes the mound for the Indians tonight against Paul Clemens for the Astros. Kazmir, a Houston native, is coming off a loss against Kansas City on Monday, where he gave up 4 ER on 7 hits through 5 innings pitched. The last time Kazmir faced the Astros was in his first start of the year off of the DL on April 20. He had a pretty shaky night, but had the benefit of pitching in the Indians’ 19-6 victory over the Astros. Kazmir gave up 6 ER on 8 hits over 3.1 innings pitched.
Clemens is another pitcher that has bounced between the bullpen and the starting rotation this year. He was dominant against the Indians out of the bullpen on April 20 in mop-up duty during the 19-6 game. Clemens threw 3.1 innings, allowing 0 ER, 1 hit, and 0 walks against the Tribe.
