Kluber Showing No Signs of Slowing Down During Red-Hot Stretch

Cleveland Indians ace Corey Kluber is on a historic stretch right now and has an opportunity to keep the hot streak going against the Colorado Rockies today. The right-hander has struck out eight or more batters in 12 straight starts, matching Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez and Nolan Ryan as the only pitchers to do so since 1913. Sportsbooks opened the Tribe as heavy -234 home faves with a total of 7.5.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in three of the Rockies’ last four games against the Indians.
  • The Indians are 20-6 SU in their last 26 games at home with Corey Kluber as the starting pitcher.
  • The total has gone UNDER in four of the Rockies’ last five games on the road with German Marquez as the starting pitcher.

Kluber picked up his ninth victory of the season after an impressive complete-game performance against the New York Yankees in his last outing. He allowed one run, three hits and one walk while whiffing 11 batters in the triumph. The veteran has been incredible since coming off the disabled list on June 1, going 6-1 with a 1.77 ERA and 131 strikeouts in 12 starts since then.

German Marquez is slated to counter on the bump for the Rox. Marquez is coming off a no-decision against the New York Mets on Thursday when he allowed three runs on six hits with five strikeouts. He’s also pitched well of late, compiling a 4-0 record with a 3.66 ERA and 44 K’s in his previous six starts.

Colorado simply hasn’t been getting the job done in Northeast Ohio lately. In the Rockies’ last 11 trips to Cleveland, they’re a paltry 2-9 SU.
