After a tallying three straight wins between the Kansas City Royals and the Oakland Athletics, the Cleveland Indians are on another losing streak. Now coming off two straight losses against the A's and one last night against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, if the Tribe want to at least look respectable now would be the time to stop losing.

On the mound to hopefully prevent that will be Carlos Carrasco, who pitched a complete game, one-hit gem against the A's in his last outing.

Lonnie Chisenhall gets his fifth straight start in right field. Whether or not he would be available for the game was up in the air for the while (at least for fans), as he left last night's game with whiplash after a failed diving attempt in the outfield.

Grab some coffee and a blankey, we are in for some late-night West Coast action.
