On Friday night, the Cleveland Indians will open their final interleague series of the regular season when the team travels to Houston to challenge the Astros in a three-game weekend set. Cleveland is coming off of an impressive run where they have won four of their last six and sit a half game ahead of the Chicago White Sox for first place in the American League's Central Division, the Tribe will look to expand that lead with some wins against the National League Central's second worst team.
Houston will be entering the set on the back of a two-game losing streak and have lost five of their last six games in addition to eight of their last 11.
The projected starters for Friday night are Ubaldo Jimenez (6-5, 5.00 ERA) for the Indians and Lucas Harrell (6-5, 5.07 ERA) for the Astros.
