Well, the Tribe’s had a day to regroup from a tough series against the Tigers. They head out to Arizona tonight to kick off an eight-game west coast road trip.
This could prove to be a season-defining road trip for the Tribe. Earlier this season, against the Giants and Angels, the Tribe was swept on a six-game road trip for just the second time in franchise history. If that streak continues, the Indians are in trouble.
Unfortunately they may have the wrong man on the mound tonight. Justin Masterson is 1-4 with a 7.49 ERA and a 1.93 WHIP in his last seven starts on the road.
Before we get to the lineups.. I’m gonna start occasionally tweeting out a #TribeTrivia question and including it in these game previews. Take your best shot in the comments section or tweet at me. I’ll tweet out the answer later tonight.
#TribeTrivia Who was the last Indians pitcher to be selected to three straight All-Star Games?
