Following a four-game split with the Houston Astros over the weekend, the Indians are back at it tonight as they will play a short two-game set against the Miami Marlins.

Trevor Bauer gets the start for the Indians tonight, as he sits at 3-1 on the season with a 1.99 ERA. He was outstanding against the Astros on Friday night in Houston, allowing one run over eight innings.

He competed his rear end off,” Indians manager Terry Francona said of Bauer.
