The Cleveland Indians are rolling with Corey Kluber in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Manager Terry Francona delivered the news Wednesday, as well as the remaining three pitchers in the Indians' four-man rotation.

Kluber will be followed by Trevor Bauer and Josh Tomlin in Game 2 and Game 3, respectively, while Mike Clevinger will get the ball in Game 4, barring he isn't used out of the bullpen before that.

In his lone career postseason start in the ALDS against the Boston Red Sox, Kluber was stellar, pitching seven innings of shutout ball, striking out seven while surrendering three hits.

This is also Bauer's first postseason, and his only start didn't go as well. Over 4 2/3 innings he gave up three runs on six hits, including two home runs to the Red Sox.

Tomlin spun five innings of four-hit ball in the ALDS, while Clevinger wasn't used in the first round.
