The Houston Astros and the Cleveland Indians will both be gunning for a victory on Wednesday when they meet at Progressive Field.

The Astros will give the ball to starter Lance McCullers Jr. in this one. Right hander McCullers Jr. is 2-0 this season with a 3.38 ERA.

Meanwhile, it’ll be Trevor Bauer who starts for the Indians. Right hander Bauer is 1-2 with a 6.35 ERA so far this season.

McCullers answered a disastrous outing with a stellar one, as the 23-year-old scattered three hits and struck out eight in 6 2/3 scoreless innings of a 2-1 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Thursday. While McCullers dominated his recent trip to the mound, his road performance continues to leave plenty to be desired as he owns a 3-8 mark with a 5.11 ERA away from Minute Maid Park. McCullers has limited experience against the Indians, although Edwin Encarnacion greeted him with a solo homer in his two at-bats versus the hurler.

After two difficult outings, Bauer turned in a solid performance on Thursday after allowing two runs on three hits and striking out seven in 6 1/3 innings of a 6-2 triumph over Minnesota. The 26-year-old handcuffed Houston in his first encounter last year, scattering three hits over seven scoreless innings before overcoming two homers in five frames on Sept. 8. Yuli Gurriel, who went deep off Bauer in the latter contest, is 11-for-23 with four RBIs and five runs scored in his last six games overall.

Oddsmakers currently have the Astros listed as 116-moneyline favorites versus the Indians, while the game’s total is sitting at 8½.

Trevor Bauer is in an advantageous position to pull himself out of an early hole and even his record, if history is any indication. Bauer looks to emerge victorious for the sixth time in as many career starts versus the Houston Astros on Wednesday as the Cleveland Indians attempt to regain their footing after a tough beginning at Progressive Field.

Bauer sports a 5-0 career mark with a 1.97 ERA and 38 strikeouts in 32 innings against the Astros, with two wins and nine punchouts coming last year. While those are positive numbers, Cleveland fell for the fifth time in its last six at home with a 4-2 setback in Tuesday’s series-opening clash with Houston. Winners of 10 of their last 12, the American League West-leading Astros hardly were in the celebratory mood after seeing All-Star second baseman Jose Altuve and right fielder Teoscar Hernandez leave the game with injuries following a collision. Manager A.J. Hinch told reporters that Altuve did not sustain a concussion after his chase of a fly ball ended with an impromptu meeting with his teammate and is considered day-to-day while Hernandez was carted off with a left knee contusion.
