Cleveland Indians vs. Toronto Blue Jays

After barely squeaking out a series victory against the juggernaut KC Royals, the Tribe lost a mighty battle to the AL's other juggernaut to kick off a three-game set.

Unfortunately, the Tribe finds themselves again playing the role of underdog tonight. The Jays will send future HoFer Mike Bolsinger to the mound for his first MLB start of 2017 and first start with Toronto, while the Indians will have to put their faith in lowly ace Carlos Carrasco.

Can the worst defending AL Champs of all time manage even one victory against this steamroller of a Toronto team? Only time will tell.
