After a week that featured series losses to the Toronto Blue Jays, the Minnesota Twins, and the Tampa Bay Rays, the Cleveland Indians suddenly find themselves one win away from sweeping the best team in baseball (according to Hammy), the Houston Astros. The offense seems to be clicking a bit more and the starting pitching has gotten out of their funk, so yay. Danny Salazar has struggled so far this season, but he takes the mound today in hopes of turning in a good performance on the heels of Mike Clevinger's stellar outing yesterday. The Astros counter with RHP Joe Musgrove. And now, here's the starting 9 for your Tribe:
