Detroit Tigers AT Cleveland Indians
Monday, May 19, 2014
Progressive Field, Cleveland, OH
Game Time - 7:05 p.m. EDT



______________________________________



Pitching matchup



Tigers: LHP Drew Smyly (2-2, 2.70 ERA)

Smyly's last outing wasn't pretty, but effective, with six innings of one-run ball in a no-decision last Tuesday at Baltimore. He struggled to retire right-handed hitters, but limited the damage to Adam Jones' home run.



Indians: RHP Corey Kluber (4-3, 3.38 ERA)

Kluber was solid Wednesday, holding Toronto to two runs with nine strikeouts and one walk in seven innings. Over his past five, the righty is 3-1 with a 2.04 ERA and 47 strikeouts in 35 1/3 innings.

PREVIEW


Tigers, Tribe headed in opposite directions
Detroit is flying high in standings, while Cleveland is struggling

By Anthony Castrovince / MLB.com | 5/18/2014 5:15 PM ET

Any thought that the Indians had begun to close the gap on the Tigers when they finished just a game behind Detroit in the American League Central standings last season has been affronted early in this 2014 season.

The Tigers, despite some notable reconfigurations in their lineup, remain a force, entering Sunday with the best record -- not just in the AL Central, but in all of baseball.

The Indians, on the other hand, have seen their efforts to repeat as postseason entrants betrayed by struggles in the clutch, inconsistency in the rotation and a bewilderingly poor defensive showing. Those issues have snowballed in the Tribe's current four-game losing streak, which left them a full 10 games behind the Tigers -- and last in their division -- after Sunday's loss to the A's.

In other words, it has gotten late early in the '14 installment of the Tigers-Indians rivalry, which is why the onus is on the Indians to climb back into relevance this week.

"Everybody here is aware of the fact that [the Tigers] are playing well," said Corey Kluber, who will start Monday's series opener at Progressive Field. "But it doesn't do us any good to compare ourselves to them, at this point."

All the Tribe can do is take care of business in-house, and Kluber, who has clearly been their most consistent starter this season, is their best possible option to get this series started off on the right foot.

Kluber (4-3, 3.38 ERA) has succeeded this season largely on the might of one of the best strikeout-to-walk ratios (5.08) in the league. He's struck out 10.1 batters per nine, while walking just two per nine -- and he fanned a career-high 13 batters in his last outing in Chicago.

The Tigers have roughed Kluber up to the tune of 23 earned runs in 37 2/3 innings in seven previous meetings, and, in the wake of the Prince Fielder trade, they present a different dynamic this year than last. They are much more oriented toward an aggressive mindset on the basepaths. In fact, they've already surpassed last year's stolen-base total.

"They're playing more small ball than in years past," Kluber said. "So in that sense, it is different. But, at the same time, they've got those guys in the middle of the lineup that are dangerous. So it's not an easier lineup to face, by any means."

Indeed, Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez have been red hot in the month of May. Now, they'll come to Cleveland with an opportunity to put the Indians deeper in a hole that will be difficult to escape.

The calendar might claim it's early in the 2014 season. But the standings insist this is a big series for the Indians.

Tigers: Martinez mashing in May

• The Indians are obviously quite familiar with what a locked-in Martinez can do to a lineup, and he is as locked in now as he's ever been.

Martinez entered Sunday night's game in Boston with a .390/.446/.746 slash line, six doubles, five homers and 10 RBIs in 15 games in May -- leading all AL players in average and ranking second in slugging and third in on-base percentage.

But the real testament to Martinez's strong start this season was that he had hit a home run exactly as many times (nine) as he had struck out.

Only 25 times has a player with at least 30 home runs struck out fewer times than he went deep, and Martinez has given himself an early opportunity to join that short list.

Indians: Shuffled lineup tries to deal with lefties

• Certainly, Cy Young winners Justin Verlander and Max Scherzer, who will pitch on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively, carry considerable clout.

But Drew Smyly might present the biggest matchup issue of this series for the Indians, simply because they've struggled so mightily against left-handed starters. They are 4-11 in games in which a southpaw starts for the opposition.

"A lot of it has to do with that guy on the mound," Ryan Raburn said after one such recent loss. "Unfortunately for us, we're not getting much going -- especially against lefties."

• The continuing struggles of Nick Swisher and Carlos Santana finally prompted a lineup change by Terry Francona on Sunday, when he batted the pair sixth and seventh, respectively. Francona did not think that change would be a long-term one, but it could carry over into Monday's series opener.

Worth noting

The Tigers' Martinez (.351) and the Indians' David Murphy (.339) entered the week with the two highest batting averages with two strikes in the Majors.

Detroit has a 16-12 record at Progressive Field, dating back to the beginning of the 2012 season. The Tigers were 9-1 in Cleveland last year.

• Michael Brantley has hit safely in 15 consecutive games at Progressive Field. That's tied with the Mets' Daniel Murphy (whose streak is also active) for the longest such streak this season.
