Cleveland Indians vs Cincinnati Reds
Tuesday, March 1, 2016, 3:05 p.m. EST, Goodyear Ballpark
Baseball! The Cleveland Indians kick off their first real game of the year against instate rival Cincinnati Reds. Team ace and number one starter Josh Tomlin gets the start, which probably means he is the best pitcher on the team and Francona has no faith in Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco, or Danny Salazar.
The lineup is as goofy as you would expect for the first game of Spring Training, although we may be seeing quite a bit of Tyler Naquin in center field, depending on how things pan out. Michael Martinez as starting shortstop? Maybe not so much.
Cactus League opener lineup for Tuesday. Josh Tomlin starting Game 1. "Take that, Klubes," he joked. pic.twitter.com/Vrx0OpKnc0— Jordan Bastian (@MLBastian) February 29, 2016
