With the Cactus League portion of Spring Training complete, the Indians head to the University of San Diego to play a friendly two-game set against the Padres. First pitch is set for 9:10 ET, but the game will unfortunately not be televised or on the radio locally. Fortunately, MLB.tv has a free two day trial for today and Sunday, you you can catch the feed from Fox Sports San Diego.

Zach McAllister with take the hill for the Tribe to start things off. McAllister has had a bit of a rough spring, posting an ERA over 6 and giving up four homers in just over 16 innings. Could be that he's doing a lot of work on the slider he's added to his arsenal this spring but regardless, I think we'd all feel better if he could put up a few solid innings before the games start to count. Zach will face off against Padres right Matt Wisler, a native of Bryan, OH who has had a similarly rough spring.

The Tribe's starting 9 looks like what we should expect to see come Monday against Oakland, with the only notable omission being Lonnie Chisenhall.

Tonight's starting lineup:

1) Nyjer Morgan (CF)

2) Nick Swisher (1B)

3) Jason Kipnis (2B)

4) Carlos Santana (3B)

5) Michael Brantley (LF)

6) Ryan Raburn (DH)

7) Asdrubal Cabrera (SS)

8) Yan Gomes (C)

9) David Murphy (RF)

Let's Go Tribe!
