The Cleveland Indians made quick work of the Detroit Tigers in yesterday's commanding 11-2 victory. Today, Mike Clevinger looks for a repeat performance of his outing last week against the Tigers and Justin Verlander hopes to make it past the fourth inning. As a reminder, Justin Verlander did not strike out a batter last game; if he fails to strike anyone out today, it will be the first time in his career that he has back to back games with zero Ks. And now, here's the starting 9 for your Tribe:
