On Saturday, Cleveland Indians left-hander T.J. House (3-3) will look to keep hot stretch going when he face fellow rookie Trevor May (3-4) and the Minnesota Twins.
T.J. House had the best start of his career last Thursday when he defeated the Minnesota Twins at home. He pitched seven scoreless innings in that game and allowed just two hits while walking no one and striking out eight. House lowered his ERA to 3.42 with that win and he has struck out 73 batters in 92 innings of work.
Twins center fielder Danny Santana has two hits in his six at-bats against House with a double and a strikeout. Designated hitter Kennys Vargas is hitless in his six at-bats against the lefty with no walks and two strikeouts.
Trevor May won his third start in a row last weekend when he defeated the Chicago White Sox on the road. He gave up three runs in six innings on the mound that day while striking out a season-high 10 batters without walking anyone. May now has a 7.71 ERA on the season and he has given up 46 hits in 35 innings of work.
Indians infielder Jose Ramirez has two hits in his three at-bats against May with a double and no strikeouts. None of the Indians' hitters have faced May more than three times in their careers.
