Series Preview


Today's Lineups

Ender Inciarte - CF Jason Kipnis - 2B
Didi Gregorius - SS Mike Aviles - SS
David Peralta - RF Michael Brantley - CF
Mark Trumbo - DH Carlos Santana - 1B
Miguel Montero - C Yan Gomes - C
Aaron Hill - 2B Ryan Raburn - DH
Jake Lamb - 3B Lonnie Chisenhall - 3B
Xavier Paul - LF Zach Walters - LF
Jordan Pacheco - 1B Tyler Holt - RF
Andrew Chafin - LHP Trevor Bauer - RHP


Tyler Holt is still starting! And this time it is against a lefty! But so is Raburn... and batting 6th. And so is Mike Aviles. As to be expected, I suppose, from a doubleheader.

Unlike last night, we shouldn't have any trouble getting this one in. Trevor Bauer takes the ball for the Indians, looking to turn around the slump he's currently in. Facing off against his former team would be a great time to do that.

I also need everyone to note that men named Buck Farmer and Vance Worley are pitching against each other tonight in Detroit.
