Cleveland Indians vs. Detroit Tigers

Monday, June 22, 2015, 7:10 ET, Progressive Field

TV: STO and MLB.TV Free Game of the Day

Radio: WTAM


The last time the Indians hosted the Tigers was the first home series of the season. The Tribe got itself swept, and hasn't been back to .500 since. Detroit hasn't been so hot either though, and finds itself in 3rd place and only a game above .500. Many preseason prognostications had both these teams making the postseason, but if the season ended today, neither one of them would make it.

Today's Lineups

Anthony Gose - CF Jason Kipnis - 2B
Ian Kinsler - 2B Francisco Lindor - SS
Miguel Cabrera - 1B Michael Brantley - CF
Victor Martinez - DH Ryan Raburn - DH
Yoenis Cespedes - LF Carlos Santana - 1B
J.D. Martinez - RF Mike Aviles - LF
James McCann - C Brandon Moss - RF
Andrew Romine - 3B Giovanny Urshela - 3B
Jose Iglesias - SS Roberto Perez - C
Kyle Ryan - LHP Trevor Bauer - RHP

Yan Gomes remians sidelined, and the Indians will have to face their nemesis (an unheralded left-handed starter) without one of their best right-handed hitters. The Tribe has been brutal on offense this month, and while Bauer is capable of keeping any lineup at bay, the Indians need to get back to what they were doing in May, or by July it might be too late.
