House makes the first start of his Major League career for the Tribe tonight, joining the rotation after a crazy few days full of injuries, starts on short rest, and general roster shuffling. His only other appearance this year was a scoreless 9th inning in a loss to Oakland last Saturday. He'll face an O's lineup lacking Manny Machado, who left yesterday's game with "groin stiffness." Insert joke here.
Indians hitters will face Bud Norris, who has had a solid 2014 so far, posting a 115 ERA+ in his first eight games despite a 2-4 record. Notably absent from the lineup is Asdrubal Cabrera, who is sitting out after taking a baseball to the knee on Thursday. Notably awesome is Lonnie Chisenhall in the *clean up spot*. Seems like TEET-O SHAPNONARLI finally RED THISS! Except that Jason Giambi is also in the lineup. Either way...
Let's Go Tribe!
