CLEVELAND — Coming off the worst start of his major league career Satchel Paige Jersey , two-time Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber will be on the mound Tuesday night when the Cleveland Indians host the Chicago White Sox in the first game of a three-game series.Kluber (18-7, 2.91 ERA) will make his first start since a 6-5 loss in Tampa Bay on Sept. 9, when Kluber only lasted 1 2/3 innings, throwing 55 pitches. Forty-four of those pitches came in the second inning and resulted in only two outs. It’s the most pitches that Kluber has ever thrown in one inning.In 1 2/3 innings, he gave up four runs and five hits with four strikeouts and one walk.Article continues below ...The Indians skipped Kluber’s next start, but it wasn’t because of that ugly start in Tampa Bay. It was because manager Terry Francona wanted to get Kluber lined up to pitch Game 1 of the American League Division Series, which will likely be Oct. 5 in Houston.In the meantime, Kluber will have three starts remaining in the regular season, the first of those Tuesday night against a White Sox team that Kluber has historically done well against.In his last start against Chicago, a 12-0 win on June 20 Joe Carter Jersey , Kluber pitched seven scoreless innings and gave up one hit, with seven strikeouts and one walk.In two starts against the White Sox this year, he is 2-0, having pitched 13 scoreless innings on four hits, with 17 strikeouts and one walk. In 22 career appearances against Chicago, he is 11-4 with a 2.90 ERA.The Indians on Saturday clinched their third consecutive AL Central title, so Francona is able to use the final two weeks of the regular season to give some of his regulars occasional days off while trying to get two key veterans ramped up for the postseason.Reliever Andrew Miller, who has made three separate trips to the disabled list this year, is still trying to get back into peak form.“He’s taking steps in the right direction. He’s got to keep building,” Francona said.The other veteran is third baseman Josh Donaldson Francisco Lindor Jersey , whom the Indians acquired in a trade with Toronto on Aug. 31. Donaldson missed most of this season with a calf strain. He has played in four games for the Indians since being activated off the disabled list and is hitting .154 (2-for-13) with one home run and one RBI.“He just needs some reps,” Francona said. “Every time he plays it feels like an investment. The more he plays (the better he’ll be). He’s playing the heck out of third base. We’ve just got to get him his at-bats.”Chicago’s starting pitcher on Tuesday will be left-hander Carlos Rodon (6-5, 3.10), who has historically pitched well against Cleveland.Rodon’s last start came against Kansas City on Sept. 12, when he got no decision in a 4-2 White Sox victory. In that game, Rodon pitched six innings, allowing two runs and five hits, with five strikeouts and five walks.Rodon’s last start against Cleveland came Aug. 10. The White Sox won that game 1-0, but Rodon did not get the decision, despite pitching eight scoreless innings on four hits with five strikeouts and two walks.In three starts against the Indians this year Corey Kluber Jersey , Rodon is 0-1 with a 2.79 ERA. In 13 career appearances against Cleveland, Rodon is 4-2 with a 2.44 ERA. United States President Donald Trump announced Saturday he's selected three former athletes鈥擝abe Ruth, Roger Staubach and Alan Page鈥攖o receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom during a ceremony Friday.The Presidential Medal of Freedom, which has been awarded since 1963, is regarded as the nation's top civilian honor for "meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors."Ruth will obtain the honor posthumously. The baseball legend, who won seven World Series titles and long held the MLB home run record with 714 after stints with the Boston Red Sox, New York Yankees and Boston Braves, died in 1948."His legacy has never been eclipsed, and he remains the personification of America's pastime. Off the baseball field Ricky Vaughn Jersey , he created the Babe Ruth Foundation and tirelessly raised funds for the war effort during the Second World War," the announcement noted.Staubach won the 1963 Heisman Trophy at Navy and served in the military during the Vietnam War before embarking on his Hall of Fame professional career with the Dallas Cowboys. The quarterback earned six Pro Bowl selections and led America's Team to a pair of Super Bowl titles.The announcement called the 76-year-old Cincinnati native a "champion for many charitable causes, including the United Way of America, the Children's Scholarship Fund and Allies in Service, an organization devoted to supporting service members, veterans and their spouses."Page, 73, is a Pro Football Hall of Famer who earned nine Pro Bowl selections as a defensive tackle for the Minnesota Vikings and was a justice of the Minnesota Supreme Court from 1993 until his 2015 retirement."Since 1988, his Page Education Foundation has provided scholarships to nearly 7,000 students Michael Brantley Jersey ," the White House press release stated.Joe DiMaggio, Jackie Robinson, Ted Williams, Hank Aaron, Muhammad Ali, Billie Jean King and Michael Jordan are among the athletes previously granted the Presidential Medal of Freedom.Other honorees Friday include doctor Miriam Adelson, Sen. Orrin Hatch, late musician Elvis Presley and late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
