Clevinger Makes First Spring Start as Indians Play in Glendale Against the Dodgers; The Tribe Starting Nine

The Indians got back to winning spring ball Tuesday, as they topped the Chicago White Sox 11-0 at Goodyear Park.

The offense was led by Leonys Martin (who is celebrating a birthday today) as he hit a two-run homer in the 3rd to put the Tribe up 2-0, and is hitting .500 (8-for-16) this spring.

Carlos Santana hit a solo homer as well for the Tribe in the victory.

Tonight fans will get their first spring look at pitcher Mike Clevinger, who makes his first spring training start, and he will battle lefty Rich Hill as the Indians take on the two-time NL Champion Los Angeles Dodgers in Glendale.

The game will be televised by MLB Network.

Here’s the starting nine for the Indians this evening:

Jake Bauers LF
Tyler Naquin RF
Jose Ramirez 3B
Carlos Santana 1B
Hanley Ramirez DH
Kevin Plawecki C
Greg Allen CF
Eric Stamets SS
Ernie Clement 2B
Mike Clevinger P
