The fans at Progressive Field will be treated to a game between the Boston Red Sox and the Cleveland Indians when they take their seats on Wednesday.

Left hander Drew Pomeranz will take the mound for the Red Sox to start this game. Pomeranz is 12-4 this season with a 3.31 ERA.

The Indians will counter Pomeranz with Corey Kluber. Right hander Kluber has a 2.67 ERA to go along with a 12-3 record this season.

Pomeranz tossed 3 1/3 scoreless innings against the New York Yankees in his last start before back spasms led to an abbreviated stint, although he stretched his unbeaten streak to a dozen outings. He has surrendered two earned runs or fewer in nine of those 12 starts and has not lost since June 11. Pomeranz made his lone start at Progressive Field last August, earning the win with 7 2/3 innings of two-run ball.

Kluber was forced to exit his last start in the sixth inning after hurting his ankle covering first base, but he earned the win by giving up one run over 5 1/3 innings at Kansas City. He is 5-0 over his last eight starts, including a scintillating stretch in which he recorded double-digit strikeouts in five straight turns. Mookie Betts is 4-for-10 against Kluber, who is 2-3 with a 4.78 ERA versus the Red Sox.

Oddsmakers currently have the Indians listed as 182-moneyline favorites versus the Red Sox, while the game’s total is sitting at 7½.

Having placed two pitchers on the disabled list Tuesday, the Cleveland Indians escaped another injury scare when ace Corey Kluber pronounced himself good to go after suffering a mild ankle sprain in his last start. Kluber looks to win his fifth consecutive start when the Indians resume their four-game set against the visiting Boston Red Sox on Wednesday night.

Kluber missed nearly the entire month of May with a back injury, but he has been spectacular since his return, posting a 9-1 record and 1.85 ERA over his last 15 starts. His counterpart Wednesday, left-hander Drew Pomeranz, also had to leave his last start with an injury but carries a six-game winning streak against the team that made him the No. 5 overall pick in the 2010 draft. Red Sox infielder Eduardo Nunez, who had zero homers and one RBI in his previous 11 games, had a three-run shot and knocked in five runs to spark a 9-1 romp that kept Boston 4 1/2 games in front of New York atop the American League East. Francisco Lindor’s leadoff homer accounted for the only hit for AL Central-leading Cleveland, which is 4 1/2 games in front of Minnesota.

In their last action, Cleveland was a 9-1 loser on the road against the Red Sox. Bettors on Boston at 164 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (10) sent OVER bettors home happy as well.

The Red Sox were a 9-1 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Indians. That made winners of bettors who got Boston at 164 on the moneyline, while the total score (10) was good news for OVER bettors.
