The Indians look to capitalize on the momentum of yesterday's great start by Trevor Bauer to take game three of the four-game series against the Jackasses. Hopefully, Josh Tomlin comes closer to his stellar one-hit performance in Seattle than his most recent five-run turd against KC.

Brandon McCarthy comes off a strong, if not spectacular, outing against Pittsburgh, so the Tribe offense has their work cut out for them. Can resurgent superstar Nick Swisher carry the Indians to victory once more against his erstwhile teammates? There's only one way to find out!

Let's Go Tribe!
