The Rangers are really good. So are the Indians. Tonight kicks off a four-game set between the two clubs with the highest winning percentages in the American League and it should be a heck of a series.

Josh Tomlin will start for the Tribe. Tomlin has struggled lately, owning a 6.85 ERA over his last eight appearances. The long ball has been a major problem for the right-hander, as he's given up a whopping 32 home runs in 141 1/3 innings.

Texas starts veteran Cole Hamels, who is 13-4 on the year with a 2.80 ERA. The left-hander has a sparkling 1.85 ERA since the All-Star break.
