The Indians look to keep their winning streak going Friday night as the Cincinnati Reds come to town for a weekend series.

Carlos Carrasco will take the hill for the Tribe, entering with a 4.98 ERA on the year. He is coming off of a complete game loss last Sunday in Texas, allowing five runs on seven hits over eight innings.

Mike Leake will start on the mound for the Reds. The right-hander is looking to improve on his last outing, as he allowed nine runs in a loss to the Giants, boosting his ERA from 2.38 to 3.62.
