It's still nice and sunny out here on the Best Coast. Try to stay awake and watch along with us, Clevelanders!

Cleveland Indians @ Seattle Mariners

Klubot is set to kick off the series in the Emerald City against everyone's favorite team to hate, the Mariners. Seattle, like Cleveland, has been off to a slow start this year, but have shown signs of heating up lately. The deck is stacked against the Tribe, as the Mariners throw lefty James Paxton their way. Paxton has been dominant in his past three starts, and great in in last six, posting a 1.63 ERA. Fortunately, the Indians counter with the reigning Cy Young who appears to have regained his true form after stumbling a bit out of the gates.

It's late out there in Cleveland, I know, but us west coasters are just getting settled in for a long, fun night of baseball. Let's go Tribe!
