Today's Lineups

Michael Bourn - CF Ender Inciarte - CF
Asdrubal Cabrera - SS Gerardo Parra - RF
Michael Brantley - LF Paul Goldschmidt - 1B
Carlos Santana - 1B Miguel Montero - C
Jason Kipnis - 2B Aaron Hill - 2B

Ryan Raburn - RF Didi Gregorius - SS
Justin Masterson - RHP Wade Miley - RHP

Big Masty is coming off a strong performance against the LAA of A, wherein he pitched seven inning and gave up just one earned run. He faces Wade Miley, a righty I admittedly know next to nothing about. From what I can tell he kind of sucks, but doesn't suck as much as the rest of the Diamondbacks. He's thrown a couple of stinkers this year but struck out eight in his most recent appearance against the Brewers.

Miley will face a full-strength Indians lineup lacking Nick Swisher. Carlos Santana mans the cleanup spot and looks to continue his hot streak, while Ryan Rayburn pulls up the rear and aims to ground into fewer than three double plays.

Let's Go Tribe!
