Cleveland Indians starter Josh Tomlin has looked great in his eight starts since being recalled in mid-August, but he has a tall order ahead of him tonight. The Little Cowboy is tasked with leading the Indians to a winning record; something the Tribe has not had since they were 2-1 in April.


For the fourth game in a row, Michael Brantley will not be in the starting lineup as he continues to nurse a sore shoulder.
