Danny Salazar pitched a dandy before the rain came in last night. Trevor Bauer will be looking to build on that success as he faces the Royals tonight. He'll need to be on his game from the get-go, as he'll be facing James Shields.

The power of the mustache propelled the Indians to victory last night. So, in honor of that, I present you with the Indians Mustache of the Day! Guess that 'stache!

Also, take a look at the Clipper's lineup tonight. Shaun Marcum is getting his first start at AAA. He has yet to go more than 2 1/3 innings, so hopefully this is the next step in getting him stretched out.
