Radio: WTAM


After another narrow defeat on Friday, and then a rain-out yesterday, the Tribe returns to Camden Yards for the last two games of the series.

The enigmatic Trevor Bauer is on the mound for the first game, having failed to make it through four innings in two of his last three starts (with a superb seven-innings in-between!). The opposing pitcher is the similarly enigmatic LGFT Ubaldo Jimenez, who has gone at least 5 IP in each of his last six starts, but still regularly hits the 100-pitch mark before he has pitched five innings.

Today's Lineups

Jason Kipnis - 2B Manny Machado - 3B
Francisco Lindor - SS Jimmy Paredes - DH
Michael Brantley - LF Adam Jones - CF
David Murphy - RF Chris Davis - RF
Carlos Santana - 1B Steve Pearce - LF
Brandon Moss - DH Chris Parmelee - 1B
Yan Gomes - C J.J. Hardy - SS
Michael Bourn - CF Ryan Flaherty - 2B
Giovanny Urshela - 3B Caleb Joseph - C
Trevor Bauer - RHP Ubaldo Jimenez - RHP

Jason Kipnis owns the longest hitting streak in MLB this year, at 20 games. Hopefully, it will be 22 by the end of today.

The second game is scheduled to start at 7:05 ET with Toru Murata called up to start as the 26th man, facing off against Chris Tillman.
