1. Kluber on the hill

Also, first Indians right-handed pitcher to win 20 games since Gaylord Perry (1974)
2. Junis looking to end the season on a high note
Royals starter Jakob Junis will be making his start against the Indians today. In 2018 season, Junis is 1-2 against the Tribe with a 6.00 ERA. In his last start against Cleveland, he pitched seven scoreless innings in a 5-1 win.
Despite his numbers being at 8-12 of the year, Junis can get to you at any moment during at-bats.
3. Keep the bats going
Last night, the Tribe pounded the Royals all because of their bats to reach 90 win mark. It’s good to see the middle of the lineup getting on the board and this will be important to see during the postseason.
