Andre Rienzo will be hoping to win his third straight start when he takes the mound for the Chicago White Sox on Sunday against Corey Kluber and the Cleveland Indians.
Andre Rienzo has now won both of his starts on the season after beating the Tampa Bay Rays last Monday. He made it through six full innings in that outing and gave up just two earned runs on five hits while striking out four and walking three. Rienzo has a 4.05 ERA on the season, but he has been a bit lucky considering he has nearly as many walks (6) as strikeouts (8) through 13.1 innings.
Outfielder Michael Bourn has two RBI against Rienzo, but that came off of just one hit in six at-bats. Carlos Santana is 3-for-5 against the right-hander with a walk and a strikeout.
Corey Kluber picked up his third loss of the season this past Tuesday when he was defeated by the Los Angeles Angels on the road. He only went 4.2 innings in that game and gave up four runs (three earned) off of eight hits while striking out five and walking a season-high four batters. Kluber has 35 strikeouts through 37 innings, but he has also given up 46 hits.
Adam Dunn has never hit a home run against Kluber, but he is 5-for-14 with a double and two RBI. Alejandro De Aza has struggled against the big right-hander in his career, going just 2-for-11 against him with three strikeouts.
