LEADING OFF: Miggy's back, Texas tussle, aces up


Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Corey Kluber throws during the first inning of a baseball game against the Detroit Tigers, Tuesday, May 2, 2017, in Detroit. On a cold, damp night, he left Detroit's 5-2 win over the Cleveland Indians for a defensive replacement after seven innings.

In his last start, Bauer beat the Houston Astros even though he allowed four runs on six hits in six innings.

Santana (5-0) lowered his ERA to 0.66 for the season and has allowed one run or fewer and gone at least six innings in all six of his starts. Kluber left his start Tuesday night against the Tigers after experiencing renewed discomfort in his lower back and he had trouble standing for his postgame interview with the media.

The Indians chose to play it safe and put Corey Kluber on the DL with lower back tightness that has bothered him and forced him out after three innings on Tuesday. Cabrera is batting.440 (22-for-50) with five home runs and 10 RBIs in his career against Kluber. This was Almonte's first start in center field this year, and that play was the only one which presented any challenge for him.

"That (Detroit) lineup we've seen what they can do, especially when you give them an opening", said Francona. The ball ended up in the first base dugout, and so Cabrera was able to go to second. The pitch was inside, several inches off the plate. The Tigers were 4-14 last season against the Tribe.

It was the fourth win in five meetings this season for the Tigers over the Indians. "We have great trainers in here and they take care of everything". They'll face the Tigers 13 more times this year. Fulmer did not get a decision in a 6-4 loss to the visiting White Sox with three runs given up on four hits and a trio of BB over six innings. He made his major league debut for the Indians last season, going 1-3 with a 7.20 ERA in 11 relief appearances.
