Ben Burns is on a near UNPRECEDENTED run and it just won't stop. Since August 1st, he is a JAW-DROPPING 108-57-2! Lately, he hasn't let up as he's 18-8 since last Wednesday and is coming off a 3-1 Monday!
Having finished "in the black" eight of the past nine months, there's NO end in sight. Join in as Ben continues to "re-write the record books."
I'm playing on CLEVELAND. With Corey Kluber pitching, the Indians should handle the Astros. They did lose to them Monday, but this is their ace in a 'must-win' spot. Expect a different result today.
Kluber should have been an All-Star. He has a 15-9 record, 2.58 ERA and 1.10 WHIP. Coming off two very impressive outings, his chances of dominating again are strong. He threw a complete game against the White Sox on Sept 6th then was two outs shy of doing the same thing again Thursday vs. Minnesota. He's allowed only 3 runs and 13 hits in the two starts.
Houston goes with the relatively unknown commodity Nick Tropeano. He did win his first start as a big +215 underdog against Hisashi Iwakuma last week, but the odds are against history repeating itself here. The Astros have only had six win streaks all season of at least three games.
Over 15 starts, Kluber has a 1.65 ERA with 116 strikeouts. The team is 14-5 when he's coming off a quality outing.
Houston is only 17-46 if their opponent scored two runs or less in the last game. They are also 37-92 vs. a starter with a WHIP below 1.15. 1* free play
