Jeff Gross/Getty ImagesThe Boston Red Sox overcame a 4-0 deficit with nine runs in the final three innings to defeat the Los Angeles Dodgers Danny Santana Jersey , 9-6, in Game 4 of the World Series on Saturday evening.Boston is now up three games to one and has a chance to clinch its fourth championship in 15 seasons with a victory on Sunday night. Game time is Sunday at 8:15 p.m. ET, with Fox televising the game live from Los Angeles.L.A. is a slight -125 favorite (bet $125 to win $100) to send the series back to Fenway Park, per OddsShark, and the over/under total is seven runs. Two left-handed aces will go against each other, as Clayton Kershaw gets the call for Los Angeles, while David Price does the same for Boston.Chris Sale was in line to make his second start of the series after starting Game 1 http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authentic-brandon-mccarthy-jersey , but manager Alex Cora opted to go with Price on three days' rest from his last start.In Game 1, Kershaw threw four full frames but allowed five earned runs in an eventual 8-4 loss. Price, on the other hand, went six innings and allowed only two earned runs in the Sox's Game 2 win, as well as coming on in relief for two-thirds of an inning in the Sox's Game 3 loss.Though Kershaw, in particular, didn't show it his last time out Ender Inciarte Jersey , these two are both capable of trading zeroes in a classic pitcher's duel.Here's a look at the most current World Series MVP props (via Oddschecker) alongside some commentary. World Series MVP OddsBoston Red Sox DH J.D. Martinez: 12-5Boston Red Sox OF Mookie Betts: 3-1Boston Red Sox OF Andrew Benintendi: 7-2Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts: 10-1Boston Red Sox 1B Steve Pearce: 13-1Boston Red Sox SP/RP Nathan Eovaldi: 17-1Boston Red Sox OF Jackie Bradley Jr.: 17-1Boston Red Sox 3B Rafael Devers: 17-1Boston Red Sox SP David Price: 20-1Boston Red Sox SP Chris Sale: 20-1Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig: 20-1Los Angeles Dodgers SS Manny Machado: 25-1Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner: 25-1Los Angeles Dodgers OF Cody Bellinger: 30-1Los Angeles Dodgers IF Max Muncy: 30-1 World Series MVP NotesRed Sox designated hitter J.D. Martinez leads the way at 12-5. The slugger delivered run-scoring hits in his first two series at-bats, but he's had just one hit in his 12 at-bats since.That lonesome hit was a big one, though, as a two-run single in the fifth inning of Game 2 turned a 2-2 game into a 4-2 lead for the Sox. That score didn't change as Boston took a 2-0 series lead.The issue with picking an MVP for the Red Sox is that the team has had different heroes in each of their three wins.Left fielder Andrew Benintendi was the star in Game 1 with four hits and three runs.Martinez, outfielder Mookie Betts (three hits and the game-winning run) and starting pitcher David Price (six innings, two earned runs, a win) tag-teamed Boston's Game 2 effort.And the clear Game 4 hero was first baseman Steve Pearce http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authentic-jose-ramirez-jersey , who hit the game-tying home run in the eighth inning before a bases-clearing double turned a nail-biting 5-4 advantage into a (somewhat) comfortable 8-4 lead.If one of those aforementioned hitters posts another strong outing en route to a Sox win, then expect that person to win the World Series MVP. In other words, if Martinez smacks a 450-foot dinger off Kershaw Sunday, he'll likely be lifting the trophy.The sneaky bet here might be Price, however.If he posts another excellent start and wins his second game of the series, then how can you not give the MVP to him? The only way is if someone has a Reggie Jackson-esque game and delivers a few home runs and a bunch of runs batted in.On the Dodgers' side, infielder Max Muncy at 30-1 is an intriguing bet if you think L.A. can come back Ronald Acuna Jr. Jersey , if only for his game-ending home run in the Dodgers' 18-inning marathon victory over the Red Sox on Friday night. Muncy has a head start on his teammates in that regard, as he helped keep the Dodgers' hopes alive.Those hopes are bleak right now, however, as L.A. needs to win three straight (including two in Boston) to take the World Series. Such a comeback wouldn't be unprecedented, however, as the Chicago Cubs came back from down 3-1 against the Cleveland Indians with a home victory before two road wins in the 2016 World Series. Mark Cunningham/Getty ImagesDetroit Tigers announcersMario Impemba and Rod Allen were reportedly involved in a physical altercation Tuesday following the Tigers' 8-3 road win over the Chicago White Sox.According to The Athletic's Katie Strang, Fox Sports Detroit sent Impemba and Allen home after the incident and replaced them withMatt Shepard and Kirk Gibson in the booth for Wednesday's game.Sources told Strang there has been "simmering tension" between Impemba and Allen due to a "clash of personalities."One source referred to them as an "odd couple." Another source said they had "not seen eye-to-eye for a long time."Fox Sports Detroit general manager Greg Hammaren released the following statement regarding the incident http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authentic-sean-newcomb-jersey , but he did not provide specifics: "My only comment is this we are addressing an internal matter and we will not have any further comment at this time."The 55-year-old Impemba is a Detroit native who has been the Tigers' play-by-play announcer for Fox Sports Detroit since 2002.Allen, 58, is a former MLB outfielder who appeared in 31 career games for the Seattle Mariners, Tigers and Cleveland Indians.He joined Fox Sports Detroit in 2003 and has been one of a handful of former players to work alongside Impemba as a color analyst.Fox Sports Detroit has yet to announce if Impemba or Allen will be subject to any discipline beyond missing Wednesday's game.

(AP) — Ji-Man Choi hit a two-run homer off Brad Hand with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, and Tampa Bay beat Cleveland to set a team record with its 12th straight victory at home.Cleveland ace Corey Kluber was chased in the second inning, but the Indians rallied before blowing a late lead. They started play with a magic number of five to clinch their third consecutive AL Central championship. Second-place Minnesota was at home against the New York Yankees.Tommy Pham singled before Choi went deep against Hand (0-1).Kluber lasted just 1 2/3 innings — matching his season low — and gave up four runs and five hits.

He has 12 homers this season.

 

Tom Szczerbowski/Getty ImagesThe Milwaukee Brewers reportedly acquired outfielder Curtis Granderson from the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday Brian Roberts Jersey , per Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic.Jon Heyman of Fancred noted Toronto will receive a Class-A prospect in return. Granderson, who cleared waivers to make him eligible for a trade after the July 31 non-waiver deadline, signed with Toronto on a one-year, $5 million deal this past offseason. With the team on the outside of the playoff race at 61-73, he was an obvious trade target.He's hitting .243/.340/.429 with 11 home runs, 21 doubles, one triple, two stolen bases and 35 RBI in 103 games this season. While he was once known for his speed, the 37-year-old is now just a left-handed bat with some pop.Outside of a two-year stretch early in his career Thurman Munson Jersey , Granderson鈥攁 career .252 hitter鈥攈as never been known as someone who hits for average. That's been the case even more in the latter stages of his career. If the three-time All-Star maintains his current batting average, it will be just the second time he's hit above .240 since 2011.These days, Granderson is suited for a platoon role. He is hitting .250 with 11 home runs against right-handers while batting just .143 with zero dingers and two RBI against southpaws in 2018. To be fair, he has280 at-bats versusrighties and just 21 against lefties.He has played all three outfield positions this year.Granderson may not be the player he once was, butMilwaukeeis hoping he can provide some big hits down the stretch as it makes a playoff push.The team is holding on to the final spot for the National LeagueWild Card, with the Colorado Rockies just 2.5 games back, and Granderson is eligible for the postseason roster since the Brewers acquired him before the end of Friday's waiver deadline.He'll provide outfield depth behind Christian Yelich, Lorenzo Cain and Ryan Braun while also serving as a key pinch hitter off the bench in the late innings. MILWAUKEE (AP) — Daniel Murphy sees no panic in his new Chicago Cubs teammates.The Cubs needed a win Wednesday night to avert a three-game sweep by division rival Milwaukee, and Murphy played a big role with three hits and a solo home run in Chicago’s 6-4 victory against the Brewers.Pedro Strop closed out a tense ninth inning as Chicago boosted its NL Central lead to four games over the second-place Brewers. Milwaukee is a half-game ahead of St. Louis for the top NL wild card.Jose Quintana (12-9) gave up two runs in 6 2/3 innings http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-jorge-posada-jersey , improving to 3-1 at Miller Park with the Cubs.Strop allowed a walk and a single to open the ninth but got the final three outs, striking out Curtis Granderson with two runners on to preserve the win.“It’s a young group with a veteran mindset,” said Murphy, who joined the Cubs in a trade with Washington on Aug. 21. “You lose a tough one (Monday) and they played really well yesterday. All you can do is come out and try to win this ballgame.”Granderson belted his first home run as a member of the Brewers in a pinch-hit role in the seventh, a two-run shot that cut Chicago’s lead to 6-4.After Travis Shaw walked and pinch-hitter Christian Yelich singled to start the ninth, the crowd of 37,427 was on its feet, nearly equally divided between Brewers and Cubs fans. Eric Thames flied out before Strop got Lorenzo Cain to ground to third for a force play. Then a nasty slider on a 2-2 pitch struck out Granderson.“I thought he gained his composure nicely,” Cubs manager Joe Maddon said of Strop. “He’s got 95 or 96 (mph) with that sink. The slider he got Granderson on Don Larsen Jersey , it’s good against righties and lefties.”Jhoulys Chacin (14-6) had tossed 16 consecutive scoreless innings against the Cubs this season before Murphy led off the fourth with an opposite-field homer into the Brewers’ left-field bullpen.“I was able to leverage the count in my favor and was able to look for something up in the zone,” Murphy said. “I didn’t think it was going to get out of the ballpark.”Javier Baez followed with a single and his aggressive baserunning helped the Cubs extend their lead. He raced for third on a single by Anthony Rizzo, and when Cain’s throw from center field sailed, Baez scored and Rizzo went to third on a second error by shortstop Orlando Arcia. Ben Zobrist doubled to score Rizzo and give the Cubs a 3-0 lead.A soft RBI single by Willson Contreras capped the four-run rally.Jonathan Scoop’s bad-hop single drove home a run in the bottom of the inning, and the Brewers loaded the bases with two outs. Quintana induced Arcia to hit a pop fly to shortstop to escape the jam.Zobrist drove in his second run in the fifth with a two-out single, but Rizzo was thrown out at the plate trying to score from second base.Kyle Schwarber belted his 25th homer into the second deck in right field in the sixth to make it 6-1.Quintana allowed a leadoff single to Jesus Aguilar and a double to Ryan Braun in the sixth, but the Brewers managed just one run on a groundout by Schoop.“It was his best fastball of the year,” Maddon said. “He primarily could have pitched with his fastball today — it was that good.”The Brewers and Cubs will meet again in a three-game series at Wrigley Field next week.“It was a fun series,” Granderson said. “It’s definitely something both teams can look at and say http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-johnny-damon-jersey , all right, it’s going to be a fight to the end.”NOT MOVINGA funny moment came in the fourth after Baez singled. He never moved off the base while Chacin threw over to first twice.“They know I wanted to run,” Baez said. “Right before Rizzo stepped to the plate, I saw the catcher (Erik Kratz) and he wasn’t giving signs, so I knew (Chacin) was coming back (to first). Then after the first one, and he tried to act like he was giving signs. But I saw he was so fake about it, I just stayed there.”Baez scored moments later after Rizzo singled and Cain overthrew third base.TRAINER’S ROOMCubs: Schwarber injured his back and left the game after homering in the sixth. “Before he went up to hit he told me it was tight,” Maddon said. “But he may have taken his best swing of the year.” . RHP Brandon Morrow may be reaching the point of no return for the Cubs, and Maddon said he will have to use several relievers in the closer role the rest of the season. Morrow Masahiro Tanaka Jersey , who posted 22 saves as the closer before being injured, has been sidelined since July 18 with right biceps inflammation. He has yet to throw off a mound in his rehab. “We’d love to have him back, but even if he does come back, how do you utilize that?” Maddon said. “You just can’t push him two days in a row.”Brewers: Yelich was not in the starting lineup as the Brewers headed into the final stretch of the season. He singled as a pinch-hitter in the ninth to reach base in his 22nd straight game. “He needs a day off,” manager Craig Counsell said before the game. “Friday was a thought, but it just reached a point where it had to be today.” Yelich had not been out of the lineup since July 3.UP NEXTCubs: RHP Kyle Hendricks (11-10, 3.77 ERA) will open a four-game series in Washington on Thursday night.Brewers: RHP Chase Anderson (9-7, 3.96 ERA) starts a three-game series against the Giants on Friday at Miller Park.

 

Baseball fans have been lucky over the past seven Octobers http://www.losangelesramsteamonline.com/aaron-donald-jersey , as four of the seven World Series range from "good and competitive" to "all-time classic" on the championship spectrum.This year's Fall Classic may fall somewhere in there if recent playoff results are any indication, as the American League and National League Championship Series haven't seen a shortage of on- (and sometimes off-) field drama.Here's a look ahead at the World Series schedule of dates, alongside some ticket information and pennant-winner predictions.Schedule of DatesTuesday, October 23 (Game 1): National League winner at American League winnerWednesday, October 24 (Game 2): National League winner at American League winnerFriday, October 26 (Game 3): American League winner at National League winnerSaturday, October 27 (Game 4): American League winner at National League winnerSunday, October 28 (Game 5, if necessary): American League winner at National League winnerTuesday, October 30 (Game 6, if necessary):National League winner at American League winnerWednesday, October 31 (Game 7, if necessary):National League winner at American League winnerTicket InfoWorld Series tickets can be purchased through StubHub. Matchup PredictionsAmerican LeagueRight-handed ace Justin Verlander gets the starting call for the Astros on Thursday. He wasn't his usual dominant self in Boston for Game 1, although a six-inning, two-run http://www.losangelesramsteamonline.com/todd-gurley-ii-jersey , six-strikeout outing is still impressive on the road against a 108-win team.However, the Astros could still put Verlander on the mound even if they had their pick of any MLB starter for this do-or-die game.The 35-year-old right-hander struck out an American League-leading 290 batters while posting a 2.52 ERA in 214.0 innings this past season.He's also been dominant in the playoffs since 2013, punching out 86 batters in 76.0 innings alongside a 2.01 ERA. Verlander hasn't allowed fewer than three earned runs (or pitched fewer than five full frames) in 12 starts during that span.On the opposite mound, the Boston Red Sox will skip team ace Chris Sale, as the southpaw has battled a stomach illness that forced him to spend a night in the hospital. Red Sox manager Alex Cora provided an update before Game 4, noting that Sale is"feeling better compared to yesterday, but physically he's not there yet. So I think if necessary he'll pitch Game 6. He feels that he'll be ready for that one. And we'll go from there."Left-hander David Price is getting the call for the Red Sox, but he's starting on three days rest and has allowed seven earned runs in 6.1 playoff innings. Houston and Verlander have the edge here. Following a potential win, however, Houston would then be tasked with beating Sale at Fenway Park for Game 6, and that's a tall order even with tough right-hander Gerrit Cole presumably opposing him. Sale struck out 237 batters in 158.0 innings alongside a 2.11 ERA (and microscopic 1.98 FIP).Betting against Sale at home in a series-clinching game isn't a safe wager, so the prediction here is for Boston to take Game 6 and move onto the World Series for the first time since its 2013 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals.National LeagueDodgers southpaw Hyun-Jin Ryu will begin Game 6. He was L.A.'sGame 2 starter versus Milwaukee and allowed two earned runs and six hits in 4.1 innings.The Brewers will go with left-hander Wade Miley, who started Game 5 and walked leadoff hitter Cody Bellinger before being pulled. Miley wasn't hurt, nor did he receive one of the quickest hooks of all time from a disgruntled manager.Rather,skipper Craig Counsell's planwas for L.A. to build its lineup in response to a southpaw before Milwaukee tossed it over to right-hander Brandon Woodruff.Miley will now be faced with helping keep Milwaukee's season alive http://www.losangelesramsteamonline.com/cooper-kupp-jersey , although one has to wonder if manager Craig Counsell goes for a similar tactic again. In any case, Miley may be gone at the slightest hint of trouble, especially considering the fact that the Brewers' top three relievers (Josh Hader, Corey Knebel and Jeremy Jeffress) will have the benefit of a few days' rest before Friday (Hader and Knebel last pitched Tuesday, while Jeffress' most recent appearance was Monday).L.A.'s bullpen has the benefit of rest as well: Right-hander Pedro Baez was the only reliever to toss more than nine pitches on Wednesday, and the entire team enjoys a day off Thursday. For the postseason, L.A. sports a 2.55 bullpen ERA.Game 6 is tough to call given how difficult it is to project when the managers will dip into the bullpens (who could have guessed Counsell would do so after five pitches Wednesday?). If we're strictly focusing on the starter matchup, Ryu(89 strikeouts in 82.1 innings and a 1.97 ERA) has an edge over Miley (50 strikeouts in 80.2 innings and a 2.57 ERA). On the flip side, the Brewers are an NL-best 51-30 at home and have a near-invincible weapon in Hader, who has pitched nine scoreless innings and allowed just five hits (and no runs) since the team's NL Central tie-breaking win over the Chicago Cubs.It's a coin-flip game, but the guess is Ryu fares well and the Dodgers get to Miley (and/or his successor) early. Look for the L.A. bullpen to then hold on late as the Dodgers take the pennant. Justin Edmonds/Getty ImagesThe Milwaukee Brewers are on to the National League Championship Series for the first time since 2011 after completing the sweep over the Colorado Rockies on Sunday.Wade Miley threw 4.2 scoreless innings and the bullpen took care of the rest as the Brewers earned the 6-0 win in Game 3 of the National League Division Series. The team is also climbing the record books with its recent hot streak:MLB Stat of the Day MLBStatoftheDayThe Brewers are riding an 11-game winning streak into the #NLCS.Talk about getting hot at the perfect time. HUm9UVJioIColorado could only manage four hits in what became the second straight shutout in the 3-0 series loss.Milwaukee Offense Proved It Can Win Without Christian YelichChristian Yelich was the talk of baseball over the second half of the season as his red-hot bat helped him become a favorite for the NL MVP award. However, it's clear the Brewers don't need their star to have a big game in order to win.Milwaukee finished Game 3 with 12 hits from eight players, while Yelich ended up just 0-for-3 with two walks.The squad managed to score in a variety of different ways, using small ball to bring in the first run, while Jesus Aguilar went with the long ball for his first hit of the series:Milwaukee Brewers BrewersCouns believes in Jes煤s.... so much so that he called his homer yesterday. There were no men on base http://www.losangelesramsteamonline.com/jared-goff-jersey , but well take it. 馃攰 #OurCrewOurOctober 4jfDtRUs9DOrlando Arcia and Keon Broxton also added back-to-back home runs of their own in the ninth inning.In the sixth inning, the Brewers took advantage of Rockies mistakes to scratch two more runs across the board.Meanwhile, there were contributions from some surprising players, including Erik Kratz:Andrew Simon AndrewSimonMLBErik Kratz MLB hits in ...2015: five2016: eight2017: two2018 NLDS: fiveYelich was a difference-maker in the tiebreaker game against the Chicago Cubs and in Game 1 against the Rockies. We know he can carry his team to a win on any given night and is more than likely to do it again at least once in the NLCS.However, he has been quiet for the past two games, and Milwaukee hardly slowed down. This could make the team even more dangerous going forward.Elite Bullpen Could Make Brewers Unstoppable in PlayoffsOlder fans might not like the way starters and bullpens are being utilized in today's game, but relievers have become more important than ever, and the Brewers are changing with the times.Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel provided some eye-popping numbers before the game:Tom HaudricourtWhy do #Brewers use their bullpen so often? Including the NLDS, their relievers are 14-0 with 1.72 ERA over 28 games (125.1 IP, 24 ER, 171 Ks). Opponents batted .188. Those numbers are pretty crazy.The pen kept it up in Game 3, with five pitchers combining for 4.1 scoreless innings and just one hit allowed. Corbin Burnes was a highlight in the middle with two perfect innings and two strikeouts, earning him the win in the official scorecard.This group has been overlooked for much of the year without big names like Wade Davis or Aroldis Chapman, but it has been one of the best in the majors all season long. It has also helped take some of the pressure off a rotation that doesn't have a true ace.Manager Craig Counsell showed his trust in the bullpen Sunday by taking out a successful Miley in the fifth inning.With so many pitchers capable of shutting down an opposing offense, there is no reason to believe this will stop in the NLCS or even the World Series.Add this to 11 straight victories Brandin Cooks Jersey Elite , and the Brewers are in great shape to take home their first championship in franchise history.Rockies Offensive Struggles Should Lead to Offseason ChangesThe usual story for the Rockies is they always have great hitting and terrible pitching, and it's the latter that holds them back. That wasn't the case in this series, as the starting pitchers performed well in each game, including German Marquez Sunday with just two runs allowed in five innings.The problem was the hitting, as Colorado was shut out for the second time in a row, finishing the series with just two total runs in three games while hitting 1-for-17 with runners in scoring position.In 28 innings this series, the Rockies scored in one of them.Ben Hutchison WISNBennyHutchMan the #Rockies offense is just non-existent.While this could be considered unlucky for a team that finished second in the NL in runs scored, this is an offense that was built around the performance of only two or three players. Per Baseball Reference, only three of the eight regulars during the season had an OPS+ above 100, which is considered league average.Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story were reliable over the course of a year, but when they aren't hitting (four combined hits in the series), this offense has problems.While David Dahl provided a much-needed boost down the stretch, Colorado still needs more players who can pick up the slack when the starters struggle.Whether the team re-signs free agents DJ LeMahieu and Carlos Gonzalez or not, it will need to add offensive firepower if it wants to make a deeper run in October next year. What's Next?The Rockies will now start looking toward the 2019 season while the Brewers move onto the NLCS. Milwaukee will host the winner of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Atlanta Braves in a series that begins Oct. 12.

Houston Astros pitcher Lance McCullers will undergo Tommy John surgery and miss all of the 2019 season.Bob Nightengale ofUSA Todayreported the news.McCullers Kris Bryant Jersey , 25, was injured in August while swinging a bat before returning to pitch five postseason innings."If he has surgery, no. If he doesn't, yes," general manager Jeff Luhnow told reporterswhen asked whether McCullers would pitch in 2019. "Any time you're talking about an elbow injury, (surgery) is one path to resolving it."McCullers went 10-6 with a 3.86 ERA and 1.17 WHIP last season. He has missed time in each of the last three seasons due to injury.The Astros' once-formidable rotation is starting to show signs of cracks withDallas KeuchelandCharlie Mortonalso due to hit free agency. Losing McCullers will make retaining one or both of those players paramount if the Astros hope to keep their postseason streak.McCullers, meanwhile http://www.chicagocubsteamshop.com/authentic-addison-russell-jersey , will be on a long road to restoring his health and hopefully getting back to his former performance level in 2020. Cleveland Indians right-hander Corey Kluber, a two-time Cy Young Award winner and a candidate to finish high in the voting this year, will make his final regular-season start on Saturday night against the Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium.Kluber (20-7, 2.83) is a 20-game winner for the first time, the first Indians right-hander to win 20 games since Gaylord Perry went 21-13 in 1974. The only other Indians pitcher to win 20 games in the last 44 years is Cliff Lee, who was 22-3 in his Cy Young Award-winning season in 2008.Kluber will be the Indians’ starting pitcher in Game 1 of the American League Division Series, which will be played Friday in Houston. In his last start http://www.chicagocubsteamshop.com/authentic-sammy-sosa-jersey , on Sept. 24 against the White Sox, he pitched seven scoreless innings and gave up four hits, with 11 strikeouts and one walk in picking up his 20th win of the season.Article continues below ...“Twenty wins is cool. It’s a nice, round number, but as long as we win the game, that’s obviously our main goal,” Kluber said. “Winning 20 is something to be proud of Joe Maddon Jersey , but the way I look at it, it means I gave us a chance to win a bunch of times. I think the number one thing it shows is that I stayed healthy and I was consistent.”Indians manager Terry Francona said watching Kluber get his 20th win was one of the highlights of the Indians’ season.“I think me and the players were all nervous for him. Probably more than he was for himself,” Francona said.Kluber is 8-1 with a 2.74 ERA in his last 11 starts. His last start against Kansas City came Sept. 5, a 3-1 victory in which he pitched 6 2/3 innings, allowing one run and two hits, with 10 strikeouts and one walk.Kluber leads the AL in innings pitched (210) and walks per nine innings (1.37). He’s second in wins, second in strikeouts per walk (6.75) and third in WHIP (0.971).In four starts against the Royals this year http://www.chicagocubsteamshop.com/authentic-willson-contreras-jersey , Kluber is 3-1 with a 3.24 ERA. In 24 career starts against Kansas City he is 12-7 with a 3.02 ERA.The Royals’ Saturday night starter will be right-hander Jakob Junis (8-12, 4.42), who will be making his team-high 30th start of the year. Junis received a no-decision in his last start, which came in a 5-4 Royals loss to Detroit. Junis pitched six innings, giving up three runs and eight hits, with five strikeouts and one walk.Junis’ last start against the Indians was a 5-1 win on Sept. 3 in which he pitched seven scoreless innings giving up two hits, with six strikeouts and no walks. In three starts against Cleveland this year he is 1-2 with a 6.00 ERA. Junis has made five career appearances (four starts) against the Indians and is 1-2 with a 5.88 ERA.The Indians Albert Almora Jr Jersey , who routed the Royals 14-6 on Friday night for their 90th win of the season, are still just 13-13 in September. Kansas City is 14-12 in September. Cleveland leads the season series between the two teams, 11-6.
