Indians Vs. Athletics Preview: Cleveland Hopes To End 3-Game Losing Streak

The Cleveland Indians blew a 4-0 lead to drop the series opener against the Oakland Athletics, 6-4, on Friday. The Tribe hopes to get a measure of revenge in Game 2 of the three-game series at O.co Coliseum on Saturday at 9:05 p.m. ET. In the process, the Indians are also looking to stem a three-game losing streak and turn around what has been an ugly August.

Cleveland's Corey Kluber (0-1, 8.56 ERA) and Oakland's Bartolo Colon (9-9, 3.55) will be the starting pitchers for the game. Kluber will be making just his fourth major league appearance this season as he searches for his first career win. He gave up six earned runs off seven hits in just 3.1 innings against the Boston Red Sox on Aug. 12. Colon, a former Indian, has gone 3-1 over his last five outings.
