Today's Lineups

Jason Kipnis - 2B Billy Hamilton - CF
David Murphy - RF Jay Bruce - RF
Michael Brantley - CF Todd Frazier - 1B
Carlos Santana - 1B Devin Mesoraco - C
Lonnie Chisenhall - 3B Ryan Ludwick - LF
Yan Gomes - C Kristopher Negron - 2B
Nick Swisher - LF Ramon Santiago - 3B
Jose Ramirez - SS Zack Cozart - SS
T.J. House - LHP Homer Bailey - RHP


House is now sort of the #3 starter in the rotation, which is not a thing I imagined myself typing when the season began. He'll get to bat for the first time in a long time this evening, so maybe he'll help his own cause. I like seeing Gomes a little higher in the lineup, better grouping the hitters most likely to do some damage.

The Ohio Cup is on the line tonight. The Indians reclaimed it by winning 5 of 6 against the Reds in 2011, and the Tribe has retained it in each of the last two years, but a loss tonight means it stays behind in Cincinnati, an awful fate.
