Josh Tomlin - RHP Nick Tepesch - RHP


The Indians look to kick start a brand new winning streak as Tomlin faces off against Tepesch, who is coming off a very poor start. Now would be a good time to take advantage of the young starter and get the offense firing on all cylinders.

Santana will get his first start in the field since coming off the DL. Mike Aviles isn't see any action today, but that is supposedly due to a stubbed toe during a bathroom trip, not because he lost his hustle. The Golden Calves are fine, though, if you were wondering.
