Today’s first game will start at 4:10pm, with Corey Kluber going for the Indians against Julio Teheran of the Braves.
Kluber is coming off a bad start last Sunday in which he was given a 3-0 lead and then gave it and more back. He earned a no-decision as the Tribe rallied to tie the game, only to fall in the 9th to the Royals 9-8.
Game two will see Trevor Bauer go for the Indians, he comes into Saturday with a mark of 2-1 with a 2.05 ERA. He took care of the Mariners in his last start out last week in Seattle.
Touki Toussaint will pitch in game two for the Braves, he’s 1-0, throwing a solid game back on April 13th against the Mets in which he didn’t allow a run in six innings.
