***DOG OF THE DAY*** Kluber has been extremely erratic over his three starts this year; in one he had 6.0 innings, seven hits and one earned, and in the other two he went just 6.0 innings with 10 earned on 14 hits. As for Toussaint, he earned the start with six nice innings of relief Saturday. Really like the value here with Toussaint today.

I like Kluber and the tribe here. The Braves have slumped of late and their bullpen woes continue to mount after Arodys Vizcaino was lost for the year after shoulder surgery earlier this week. Still, Atlanta has to get more consistent production at the plate if they want to have success in the competitive NL East. After scoring 18 runs in back to back wins over the weekend against the Mets, the Braves totaled nine runs against Arizona with six of those coming in Game 1. Clevelands offense has been anemic with Jason Kipnis and Francisco Lindor on the shelf but their pitching has been very good. This seems like a prime chance for Kluber to get untracked as the Braves are sputtering at the dish. Look for the Indians to scrape out a win here.

Let's Go Tribe: Series Preview: Cleveland Indians vs. Atlanta Braves
Baseball can be strange. The Indians finished up the most recent road trip with a 5-4 record, but they did it in the strangest way possible. All told, the Tribe sits 11-7, best in the AL Central. So far in 2019, the Indians haven't lost to teams outside of the AL Central, which is good considering that their next opponent is from the NL East. The Atlanta Braves are young, exciting, and coming off of a season that saw them win their division but lose to the in the NLDS (sound familiar?).
How are the Braves doing in 2019?
Fansided: Cleveland Indians: Previewing the weekend series versus Atlanta
The Cleveland Indians return home to Progressive Field after a 5-4 road trip through Detroit, Kansas City, and Seattle. We probably thought they had a good chance of doing better than that considering the opponents, but the Tribe capped off their early-season journey with a sweep of the upstart Mariners, so let's choose to look positively on the nine-game stretch.
The Indians will receive a visit from the Atlanta Braves in a three-game weekend tilt that has early playoff implications for both teams. Cleveland is looking to get out ahead of its AL Central competition, while the Braves are looking to keep in stride with their NL East counterparts.

Fansided: Atlanta Braves go to Cleveland looking to find themselves again
The is no denying that getting swept at home by the Arizona Diamondbacks was a terrible and embarrassing moment in this young season for the Atlanta Braves.
As James pointed out in our takeaways article of that game, teams looking to contend don't get swept at home by inferior teams.
That doesn't mean I'm ready to give up on the season, but those types of things shouldn't happen.
I think back to the 2018 season when the San Francisco Giants came in and embarrassed us at home -- even worse than what the Diamondbacks just did.
