The Cleveland Indians will take on the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday. The Indians will send Corey Kluber to the mound to face Ubaldo Jimenez in the second meeting of a three game series.
Kubler is coming off a no-decision against the Detroit Tigers. He pitched seven strong innings and gave up three runs on eight hits, striking out eight and walking two. When Kubler left the game, he had a 4-3 lead but the bullpen couldn’t hold on for him. Kubler is 4-3 with a 3.43 ERA on the season and will look to pick up his fifth win of the season when he faces the Orioles.
Kubler hasn’t fare well when facing Baltimore hitters. Baltimore is hitting .439 when facing Kubler going 18-for-41 with four doubles, a triple, home run and nine RBIs.
Jimenez earned his fifth loss of the season on Sunday after allowing five earned runs and eight hits against the Kansas City Royals. The loss left Jimenez with a 2-5 record and 4.50 ERA on the season. Jimenez had picked up the pace in his last three start giving up just one earned run in his last three outings. With the way the Royals had been playing, Jimenez was set up for another good one but he couldn’t keep it together and gave up a three run homer to Alex Gordon in the fifth inning. It ended up being the deciding factor. Jimenez is looking to get back on track when he faces Indians on Saturday.
