Indians Look to Wrap Up Short Series with the Sox with a Win – the Tribe Starting Nine

CLEVELAND – Now that the hoopla of opening day is in the books, the Indians are officially into the season with another home game Wednesday afternoon at 1:10pm against the Chicago White Sox.

Today it’s Corey Kluber, who got the call as the teams’ starter in the opener for the Tribe, looking again for another good outing despite taking the loss against the Twins.

Monday in the opener it was a dominant effort by Mike Clevinger, who reached a career-high in strikeouts, but the pen allowed the Sox to take a 3-1 lead in the 8th inning.

Then the Indians bats rallied, as a couple walks and a key hit by Max Moroff put them ahead to stay 5-3, as Brad Hand got his second save.

Now at 2-2, the Tribe will look to wrap up today’s series with a win over the Sox.

Here’s the starting nine for the Tribe today:

Leonys Martin CF
Jose Ramirez 3B
Jordan Luplow RF
Carlos Santana 1B
Hanley Ramirez DH
Greg Allen LF
Roberto Perez C
Max Moroff 2B
Eric Stamets SS

And the Sox starting lineup:

Leury Garcia CF
Yoan Moncada 3B
Jose Abreau 1B
Yonder Alonso DH
Eloy Jimenez LF
Daniel Palka RF
Jose Rondon 2B
James McCann C
