The Indians send the just-recalled-from Triple-A-again Danny Salazar to the mound in search of what would be a huge sweep of one of baseball's best teams this season. Tyler Holt was sent back down to Columbus again, in order to make room on the roster for Salazar.

For the second game in a row Jason Kipnis has been moved down to the #5 spot in the lineup.
