The Indians host the Astros in an early game Thursday afternoon at Progressive Field.
The Astros continue to battle for that final Wild Card spot and are just two games back after winning three games in a row.
The Indians have lost two games in a row but have a stronghold on first place in the AL Central ahead of the Tigers.
Making his first Major League start for the Astros will be David Paulino, he’s just 22 years old.
Getting the nod for the Indians will be Trevor Bauer, he’s 10-6 with a 3.70 ERA and 1.27 WHIP.
The Astros defeated the Indians on Tuesday by a final score of 4-3 after defeating them the night before 6-2.
They’ve been absolutely on fire, winning 13 of their last 17 games.
They’ve also scored 29 runs over their last five games.
Houston’s not only been scoring a lot but they’ve also been getting great pitching.
David Paulino was just called up on Tuesday and will be getting his first start for the Astros in this one.
This will be his major league debut and he may get several starts while Dallas Keuchel is recovering from a shoulder injury.
He has a 2.00 ERA over 90 innings of work in the minor-leagues.
The Indians will be looking to bounce back after dropping two in a row to the Astros.
They’ll certainly get their chance against the rookie pitcher.
Prior to their current two game losing streak, they won six games in a row.
They’ve scored just five runs against Houston in their first two games but they had scored 34 runs during their six game winning streak.
Trevor Bauer has been pretty good for the Indians this season and is coming off back to back quality starts.
He went 8.1 innings against the Marlins on September 3rd, giving up just three runs.
On August 29th, he gave up none and went six innings.

Free Houston Astros vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
The Astros have been red hot but so were the Indians before this series began.
The first two games is a rather small sample size and I believe the Indians will score plenty against the Rookie pitcher.
Bauer has been great and the Astros are fairly inconsistent offensively for the season, so I don’t think they’ll score very much.
Nevertheless, this one might go over.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Over 8
I am not convinced the Astros will win this one with a rookie pitcher starting despite playing so well lately.
Bauer has been a rock his last two starts so he’ll be stingy.
