Through a quirk of MLB's Interleague scheduling, the Astros haven't faced the Indians in 11 years, and Friday's game will mark the end of the longest period any two teams have met in the Interleague era. Lucas Harrell will get the start for Houston, fighting a growing ERA (8.37 in his last four starts) but showing consistency at home. Harrell is 4-0 at home in his last five starts.
Ubaldo Jimenez will start for the Tribe, and his 3-0 with a 2.27 ERA against Houston in five starts, and 1-0 in three starts at Minute Maid Park. However, only Carlos Lee, Jordan Schafer and Chris Snyder have ever faced Jimenez.
