Indians Vs. Red Sox: Corey Kluber Starts As Cleveland Looks To Take Series Sunday

After a 5-2 win Saturday night behind a strong outing from Zach McAllister, the Indians will be hoping to get a similar outing from a starter fighting for his spot in the rotation in Corey Kluber.

Kluber (0-0, 6.10 ERA) went six-plus in his last start against Minnesota and gave up three runs with three strikeouts, so another quality start Sunday afternoon would boost his chances with Roberto Hernandez returning from his long absence at some point this week.

Jon Lester, who starts for Boston, continues to look mediocre--he's given up at least four runs if five of last six outings, including four against the Rangers in 6 2/3 innings. Lester (5-10, 5.36 ERA) has found more success on the road, with a 3-2 record and a 3.34 ERA away from Fenway.

Cleveland second baseman Jason Kipnis will be out of the lineup again Sunday with neck stiffness.

First pitch from Progressive Field is scheduled for 12:05 pm CT, and the game can be seen locally on STO.
