Danny Salazar looks to get on track against A's in Oakland

After he lasted just one inning his last start, the Indians are hoping for a solid performance from Danny tonight as evidence that his injury isn't lingering.

Radio: WTAM



Sorry guys, I'm not gonna quote Gertrude Stein like last night's game thread. I'm too dumb for that sort of thing. Instead, I will simply discuss tonight's lineup. Danny Salazar hopes to last longer than one inning like he did in his last start, perhaps because of lingering shoulder pain. Assuming the 'Dzar can put up a decent line tonight, the pitching matchup clearly favours the Indians, who will face off against some guy I've never heard of. That dude is a lefty though, so no Tyler Naquin tonight, at least to start.
