The Indians either win today, or suffer a very deflating sweep at home against the top team in the division, who'd been struggling for a month coming into this series. If they're is going to do it, they'll have to get to reigning Cy Young winner Max Scherzer.

Despite it being a day game after a night game, the Tribe is trotting out its top lineup, because everyone will get the day off tomorrow (and again on Thursday, in a rare two-off-days week for the team.
