INDIANS (51-66): CF Grady Sizemore, LF Jamey Carroll, SS Asdrubal Cabrera, RF Shin-Soo Choo, 3B Jhonny Peralta, DH Travis Hafner, 2B Luis Valbuena, C Wyatt Toregas, 1B Andy Marte. RHP Fausto Carmona (2-7, 6.37).

ANGELS (71-45): 3B Chone Figgins, RF Bobby Abreu, LF Juan Rivera, DH Vladimir Guerrero, 1B Kendry Morales, CF Torii Hunter, 2B Maicer Izturis, C Mike Napoli, SS Erick Aybar. RHP Trevor Bell (0-0, 6.75).

This should be an interesting test for Fausto, as the Angels have been hitting the Pedroia out of the ball since the All-Star Break, and now Vlad Guerrero and Torii Hunter are both off the DL. In each of their last seven games, they've scored at least five runs. And, unlike most recent Angels teams, they're very patient, ranking second in the AL in OBP.
