Series Preview


Today's Lineups

Jason Kipnis - 2B Austin Jackson - CF
Asdrubal Cabrera - SS Ian Kinsler - 2B
Michael Brantley - CF Miguel Cabrera - 1B
Carlos Santana - 1B Victor Martinez - DH
Ryan Raburn - LF J.D. Martinez - LF
Nick Swisher - DH Torii Hunter - RF
Yan Gomes - C Nick Castellanos - 3B
David Murphy - RF Alex Avila - C
Mike Aviles - 3B Andrew Romine - SS
Josh Tomlin - RHP Drew Smyly - LHP


Chisenhall gets the day off against a lefty, and Raburn is batting fifth, which is way, way too high to see his name. Tomlin faced the Tigers four weeks ago and (with some help from bad defense) allowed 8 runs in 4 innings. Hopefully he's got a better performance in him this afternoon, and the Tribe can finish off what would be a massive sweep.
