Trevor Bauer defeated the Astros for the seventh time in seven career starts against them as the tribe backed him with three home runs to break Houston’s four-game winning streak with a 5-3 victory in the series opener Friday night at Minute Maid Park.
Indians, the defending American League champions will send right-hander Mike Clevinger for his third start of the season. He will be throwing after three days of rest as he went one-third of an inning in relief versus Tampa Bay on Tuesday. Clevinger made just one start against Houston last season, throwing only 1 2/3 innings in a 6-2 home loss.
Mike Fiers is set to make his eighth start of the season but only his third at home.Fiers is at par for the MLB lead with 16 home runs allowed. In his first two career starts against Cleveland, the right-hander managed wins but failed to get a decision, allowing homers by Edwin Encarnacion and Abraham Almonte in his start against the Indians at Progressive Field on April 27.
However, Fiers has pitched six innings or more just twice in his seven starts this season.
