Indians face toughest opponent yet as Astros come to town

Josh Tomlin vs. Dallas Keuchel doesn't seem like a great matchup for the Indians, but hey... miracles can happen.

Cleveland Indians vs. Houston Astros

Where: Progressive Field - Cleveland, Ohio

When: Tuesday, April 25, 6:10 pm ET

How: TV - STO; radio - WTAM


The Houston Astros are the best team the Indians have faced so far, both on paper and in terms of talent. Not only is their lineup stacked, but they get the brunt of a solid rotation vs. the shaky back end of the Tribe's rotation. Tonight's matchup features Dallas Keuchel, an early Cy Young candidate, against Josh Tomlin, who is the opposite of that. But I once watched Josh Tomlin throw a one-hit, complete game shutout against a terrible Seattle lineup, so... anything can happen! I guess!
