Michael Fulmer  Corey Kluber
.
The Detroit Tigers visit the Cleveland Indians on Sunday Night Baseball in what promises to be an exciting duel between All-Star pitchers Michael Fulmer, the winner of last year’s American League Rookie of the Year award and Corey Kluber, the 2014 American League Cy Young award winner.
.
Here’s a breakdown of how Fulmer and Kluber have fared as of late and an early prediction for the game.
.
Pitching Matchup
.
Michael Fulmer (8-6, 3.20 ERA) vs. Corey Kluber (7-3, 2.85 ERA)
.
Fulmer’s Last Start
.
Michael Fulmer (8-6, 3.20 ERA, 1.10 WHIP), who was recently named to his 1st All-Star game, gave up just three earned runs on five hits (a season-high two home runs) and one walk with five strikeouts over eight innings of a 5-3 win against the Giants on Tuesday.
.
Fulmer has won his last two starts, posting a 2.78 ERA in those outings and he’s 3-4 with a solid 2.16 ERA with one complete game in seven road starts. He struggled against the Indians last season though, going 1-2 with a 6.98 ERA four starts, surrendering three home runs in 19 1/3 innings of work. Fulmer, who won last year’s American League Rookie of the Year award, ranks sixth in the AL with eight wins, 109 2/3 innings pitched, a 3.20 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP, continuing his success from last season.
.
Fulmer’s strikeout rate has declined from 7.5 strikeouts per nine innings pitched (K/9) in 2016 to 6.8 this season but he’s only allowed six home runs in 16 starts, making him a reliable starter and fantasy baseball asset.
.
Kluber’s Last Start
.
Corey Kluber (7-3, 2.85 ERA, 0.97 WHIP) had an incredible outing against the Padres last Tuesday, allowing just one earned run on five hits and one walk with 10 strikeouts over eight innings but he took a tough 1-0 loss, as he received little help from his offense or defense.
.
The Indians went 0 for 10 with runners in scoring position and left seven men on base and a Cory Spangenberg’s fielder’s choice scored the only run of the game in the fifth inning after the Cleveland defense failed to turn a double play on consecutive ground balls.
.
Kluber still managed to make history, recording his fifth straight game with 10 or more strikeouts, an Indians record. The 2014 American League Cy Young Award winner also became just the seventh right-hander to accomplish this feat since 1913.
.
Hitters have been helpless against Kluber since returning from almost a month on the disabled list in May because of a back injury. He’s had two 10-strikeout games; Tuesday’s outing against the Padres and June 14 against the Dodgers, and games with 11, 12 and 13 strikeouts against the Orioles, Rangers and Twins.
.
Since returning on June 1, Kluber has posted a 1.24 ERA over seven starts, including a 1.26 ERA in six June starts, in which he went 4-0. The right-hander is 1-1 with a poor 10.61 ERA in two starts against the Tigers this season but he’s 5-0 with a 2.85 ERA in seven home starts. Kluber ranks second in the American League with an 0.97 WHIP and two complete games and fourth with a 2.85 ERA and 115 strikeouts.
.
Early Prediction & Betting Analysis
.
If you are considering placing some action, make sure to do it on a trusted betting site, the betting odds for this game will be released on Sunday but all signs point to a low-scoring affair for the last Sunday Night Baseball before the All-Star break.
.
Shop for the best lines available and take Under as your MLB pick because Fulmer and Kluber have been lights out lately and their respective away/home records support this lean.
