Good evening, Tribe fans!
Maybe you haven’t heard, but the Indians are in a bit of a scoring funk over their past few games. The pitching staff (especially the starting pitching) has looked amazing, but the offense has left a tremendous amount to be desired.
Either way, the Indians will step onto Tropicana Field in St. Pete to try to snap out of the losing skid and continue to stake their claim to the Central Division throne. Jay Bruce will make his first start for the Indians (after getting an at bat on Thursday night).
On the mound for the Rays is right hander Jacob Faria, who has been excellent this season with a 2.81 ERA. The Indians will counter with Carlos Carrasco (Heart-eyes emoji), who is coming off a rough start against the Yankees. Carlos will look to follow Trevor Bauer, Corey Kluber, and Danny Salazar, who are coming off great, transcendent, and solid-but-inefficient starts (respectively).
First pitch is just after 7pm.
Catch you after the game!
