Corey Kluber and Tyler Skaggs were sharp in their season debuts last week, and they’ll try to pick up where they left off when the Los Angeles Angels host the Cleveland Indians in the rubber match of their three-game series at Angel Stadium on Wednesday afternoon.
Whenever you’re battling against Kluber, the best is going to come out of everyone, Indians catcher Yan Gomes told the Akron Beacon Journal last week.
Skaggs (1-0, 0.00) threw 6 1/3 shutout innings in a 2-1 victory at the Oakland A’s on Friday, allowing three hits, striking out five and walking none.
It’s something to build off, he told reporters afterward. I just want to take that experience into the next one and the next one and the next one.

Baltimore emerged from the three-game series with a 1-2 record and a.117 team batting average.
When you see that many guys having trouble, you know it’s the pitching, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.
Baltimore’s potentially potent lineup has thus far produced only 11 hits in 29 innings. Orioles slugger Chris Davis, batting leadoff, is 0 for 12 — the worst start of his career — and All-Star second baseman Jonathan Schoop is 1 for 13.
Only one batter reached Dwyane Wade Youth jersey against Berrios over the first eight innings — rookie catcher Chance Sisco, whose third-inning double whisked by the raised glove of left fielder Eddie Rosario at the wall.

Berrios then retired 17 straight before Sisco bunted down the third-base line against the shift for a one-out single in the ninth. A walk and a single loaded the bases before Berrios retired Schoop and Adam Jones.
