Cleveland Indians at Toronto Blue Jays

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015, 7:07 pm ET, Rogers Centre


Radio: WTAM

Last night's contest was a fantastic game, but ended with disappointment. The winning streak is over, and to start another one the Indians will have to get past R.A. Dickey's knuckler and continue to hold down a dynamic offense*.

Chris Johnson will be making his first start since returning from the DL, and it's at third base. Jerry Sands will be your first baseman, with Carlos Santana the DH tonight. For Toronto, Rusell Martin is out of the lineup, which I suppose is a bit of a break.

*or should I should I type offence given that we're talking about a Canadian team?
