Indians Continue To Struggle Against Tigers

After a 7-1 shellacking in their series opener Monday, the Cleveland Indians will try Tuesday to overcome a Detroit Tigers squad they have struggled against. With that loss, the Tribe have now gone just 1-5 SU and against the runline in their past six against the Tigers, including a 1-3 record this season.

Shark Bites
  • Jason Kipnis is 6-for-50 with 15 strikeouts in his career against Justin Verlander.
  • The total has gone OVER in 9 of the Indians' last 12 games against the Tigers.
  • The Tigers are 3-1 against the runline in their past 4 games against the Indians as underdogs.

Corey Kluber will take the bump for the Indians in hopes that he can avoid the long ball. Kluber has already surrendered six home runs through his first five starts this season and his 1.57 HR/9 is the highest of his career. To make matters worse, Kluber will be facing a returning Miguel Cabrera, who is slated to come off the 10-day DL for this game.

Justin Verlander, who starts for the Tigers in this one, has bounced between great and terrible so far this season. His worst start so far came against the Indians, as Verlander lasted just 4.0 innings while surrendering 11 hits and nine runs. However, the righty is coming off his best performance of the season that saw him go 7.0 innings with no runs allowed.
