Let's Go Tribe!

Cleveland Indians vs. Arizona Diamondbacks

Friday, March 27th, 4:05 ET

Radio:  WMMS 100.7, Indians Radio Network, MLB.com

We've got two good things going for us:  It's Friday and Corey Kluber's pitching!

Coming off yesterday's 13-2 loss to the Reds, the Indians will turn to their ace to get things back on track.  Kluber, who is scheduled to go six innings for the Tribe, was sharp in his last outing, giving up only three hits and striking out six over 5 2/3 innings.  His ERA stands out 4.26 this spring.

Arizona will counter with soft-tossing Josh Collmenter.  Collmenter, who is scheduled to be the Diamondbacks' opening day starter, hasn't given up a run yet this spring.  Let's see who will try to change that today.

Today's Indians starting lineup:

1. Jose Ramirez, SS

2. Mike Aviles, 3B

3. Brandon Moss, DH

4. Carlos Santanta, 1B

5. Ryan Raburn, LF

6. Jerry Sands, RF

7. Tyler Holt, CF

8. Roberto Perez, C

9. Ryan Rohlinger, 2B

Did you know Rohlinger has 2 home runs this spring?  I'm not sure his mom even knew that.  With Raburn in left and Sands in right, I hope Tyler Holt has his running shoes on.
