Game notes: In the final game before the All-Star break, a pair headed to Miami for the festivities square off on the mound. Both Fulmer and Kluber missed last weekend’s series. In fact, Fulmer has yet to pitch against Cleveland this season. But last season, Fulmer amassed a 6.98 ERA in four starts against the Indians. Kluber has at least eight strikeouts in his last seven starts. Before that, on May 2, the Tigers beat him after Kluber pitched just three innings, giving up five earned runs on five hits and striking out four.
