Left-hander David Price (12-10) will try to end his current two-game losing streak when the Detroit Tigers go up against Corey Kluber (13-8) and the Cleveland Indians on Monday afternoon.
David Price only made it through two innings against the New York Yankees last week and ended up losing for the second time as a member of the Rays. He gave up a season-high eight earned runs in that outing while striking out three batters and walking one. Price is now 12-10 overall on the season and he has struck out 224 batters in 203.1 innings.
Lonnie Chisenhall is 1-for-3 against Price in his career and is the only player on the Indians who has been able to hit a home run off of the lefty. Carlos Santana is 5-for-12 against him with three doubles and an RBI.
Right-hander Corey Kluber lost his second game in a row last Wednesday when he was defeated by the Chicago White Sox on the road. He pitched 6.1 innings in that start and gave up three runs on nine hits while striking out eight batters and walking two. Kluber now has an excellent 2.52 ERA on the year and he has only given up 168 hits in 192.2 innings.
One player on the Tigers who Kluber definitely does not like facing is Miguel Cabrera, who is 15-for-28 against him in his career with two doubles and three home runs.
