Cleveland Indians vs. Los Angeles Dodgers

Wednesday, June 14, 2017. 7:10 p.m. ET. Progressive Field

TV: STO

Radio: WTAM

Last night's result was as you'd expect, but how it happened was not: Trevor Bauer left with the game tied, but the vaunted Tribe bullpen gave up five runs over the final three innings. Now, with Corey Kluber on the mound, perhaps the Indians will win (expected) but in an unexpected way. The umpire crew throws out 17 Dodgers, meaning the Indians win by forfeit? Perhaps a come-from behind victory?

(hottake)As usual Terry Francona is sitting last night's offensive heroes because of "matchups". (/hottake)
