Scott Kazmir, LHP---Jonathan Pettibone, RHP
2-1, 4.87 ERA
---2-0, 3.63 ERA
Indians: In a win over the A's Thursday, Kazmir gave up one run on five hits with 10 strikeouts and no walks in six innings. The lefty hit 95-96 mph for the first time since 2009 and has won back-to-back starts.
Phillies: Pettibone allowed seven hits, three runs and four walks and struck out one in 5 2/3 innings in Wednesday's start vs. the Giants. It was his fourth start in the Majors and the first time the Phillies lost one of those starts.

Corey Kluber, RHP---Cole Hamels, LHP
2-2, 5.64 ERA
---1-5, 4.18 ERA
Indians: After going 2-1 with a 2.70 ERA over three appearances, Kluber struggled mightily in a loss against the Tigers on Friday. The righty allowed eight runs on 11 hits, including two homers, in 4 2/3 innings.
Phillies: At first glance, Hamels' losing record seems fitting given his 4.18 ERA. But ever since allowing a combined 13 runs in his first two starts of the year, the lefty has a 2.41 ERA in his last 41 innings.
