Cleveland Indians @ Oakland Athletics

Thursday, July 30, 2015 @ 10:05 ET Coliseum - Oakland, CA



Time for late-night baseball, with the first contest of a seven-game road trip through California.

Carlos Carrasco will hopefully rebound from a rough previous outing and see about helping the Indians win consecutive games. This will be Carrasco's first time pitching at the Oakland Coliseum, the only AL stadium he's never played in before.

Tyler Holt and Lonnie Chisenhall, both of whom have spent most of the last two months in Triple-A, are among those who'll try to help the Indians score a bunch of runs in consecutive games, which has been even more rare than consecutive wins. It will be interesting to see where all Chisenhall plays, since Urshela is doing well at third base. Lonnie has spent some time in right field recently, and I expect we'll get a look at home out there sometime this weekend.
