Indians right-hander Corey Kluber (5-11, 3.59 ERA) faces off against Royals righty Jeremy Guthrie (7-6, 5.35) when the American League Central rivals wrap up their three-game series on Wednesday afternoon at Progressive Field.
Kluber allowed a season-high six earned runs his last time out, and has had trouble with Kansas City this season, compiling a 5.85 ERA in his three starts against the Royals. Kluber has thrown at least seven innings in six of his last seven starts as the Tribe looks to avoid its ninth straight loss at home and a sweep by the Royals.
