Series Preview


Today's Lineups

Brian Dozier - 2B Michael Bourn - CF
Eduardo Nunez - 3B Jose Ramirez - SS
Trevor Plouffe - DH Michael Brantley - LF
Kennys Vargas - 1B Carlos Santana - DH
Josmil Pinto - C Jason Kipnis - 2B
Oswaldo Arcia - RF Mike Aviles - 3B
Aaron Hicks - CF David Murphy - RF
Chris Parmelee - LF Chris Gimenez - 1B
Doug Bernier - SS Roberto Perez - C
Ricky Nolasco - RHP T.J. House - LHP


T.J. House looks to match Corey Kluber's Game 1 performance as he takes the hill in Game 2. Hopefully the Indians' offensive outburst from earlier in the day carries over and we don't revert back to the offense we've seen in the past few games.

Brantley will move back to the field for the series finale, but the bottom half of the lineup is very uninspiring. Hopefully Yan Gomes or Lonnie Chisenhall will at least make a PH appearance later in the game.
