And so, Francisco Lindor has arrived...but he's not in the starting line-up.

After a sterling all-around effort last night, the Tribe find themselves one game away from actually winning a series against the Tigers.

Corey Kluber is on the mound for the Tribe, hoping for once, to receive some reasonable run support. His opposite number is junkballer Alfredo Simon, who has racked up two wins against the Tribe already this season. Simon went eight innings in his last start, in which he held the White Sox to one run (a solo homer) on five hits and two walks.

Today's Lineups

Jason Kipnis - 2B Anthony Gose - CF
Carlos Santana - 1B Ian Kinsler - 2B
Michael Brantley - LF Miguel Cabrera - 1B
Brandon Moss - RF Yoenis Cespedes - LF
David Murphy - DH J.D. Martinez - RF
Yan Gomes - C Tyler Collins - DH
Giovanny Urshela - 3B Bryan Holaday - C
Michael Bourn - CF Andrew Romine - 3B
Mike Aviles - SS Jose Iglesias - SS
Corey Kluber - RHP Alfredo Simon - RHP

The Tribe has named an unchanged line-up today, which means that Mike Aviles rather than Francisco Lindor is the starting shortstop. However, Lindor is now on the roster in place of Nick Swisher (who has been sent to the DL), so there is a very small chance that we might actually see him today.
