The Indians are the hottest they've been all season, having won six games in a row to climb out of last place and to within striking distance of a .500 record. The Rangers have had a very similar season, dropping way in the standings, but currently riding a substantial (five-game) winning streak into this series.

Yan Gomes gets a day off, which is no surprise, given that he's just returned from the DL and still looks a little rusty.

Fingers crossed that Shaun Marcum can continue to pitch well, because that'd give the Tribe a really exciting starting rotation, one good enough to potentially overcome the team's shoddy defense and keep opponents from scoring many runs this season.
