Indians vs Dodgers Game Thread (Monday): Klubot attempts to assimilate Dodgers

New, comments

Corey Kluber and the Indians look to take Game 1 of a three game series against Dan Haren and the surging Dodgers.

In an attempt to blend in with the humans, Klubot begins his transition into offensive threat slowly.

Asdrubal Cabrera - SS Yasiel Puig - RF
Michael Brantley - LF Adrian Gonzalez - 1B
Carlos Santana - 1B Matt Kemp - LF
Jason Kipnis - 2B Andre Ethier - CF
Lonnie Chisenhall - 3B Juan Uribe - 3B
Yan Gomes - C A.J. Ellis - C
David Murphy - RF Miguel Rojas - SS
Corey Kluber - RHP Dan Haren - RHP

The Dodgers are playing great baseball but the Indians have a chance to attack what might be their weakest starting pitcher link in Dan Haren. David Murphy, who has 2 hits since June 10th, could go a long way to helping the Indians get going tonight if he can manage to rediscover his groove at the plate.

As a few have pointed out, this may be your last chance to catch Vin Scully in action with the Indians on the field, so be sure to tune in if you can.

UPDATE: Danny Salazar went 7 1/3 innings giving up 1 run on 5 hits while walking 1 and striking out 9. Very nice start for someone that we may need soon if Masterson doesn't rebound.
