2018 Junior League Division Championship Game 1: Indians @ Astros

Wild Thing.

Other than that it’s hard to get enthused about an Indians / Astros matchup.

Indians of the Land of Cleves will hurl Corey Kluber (R, 20 – 7, 2.89 ERA) against the ‘Stros Justin Verlander (R, 16 – 9, 2,52 ERA). Last year Kluber lost his game in the Division Series with 10 hits over 6 Innings, 9 charged Runs, 4 Home Runs, 3 Walks and a whopping ERA of 12.79. Verlander went 4 – 1, losing his start in the Series but with an overall record of 9 Runs, 3 Dingers, 8 Walks, and an ERA of 2.21.

Smart money is on the ‘Stros but the Tribe is the sentimental favorite despite their unfortunate choice of mascot (Yahoo Must Go!).
