Indians Vs. Angels: Starting Lineups For Tuesday's Game

Held scoreless by Los Angeles ace Jered Weaver on Monday, the Cleveland Indians will try to even their series with the surging Angels on Tuesday at Progressive Field.

Manager Manny Acta and the Indians will send 6-foot-6 Zach McAllister to the hill to face the Angels' Dan Haren, a right-hander once viewed as one of the game's premier pitching prospects. Haren's 2012 campaign has been wildly inconsistent, but he does own some very impressive numbers against Cleveland's most vital hitters over the course of his career.

Along with Jason Kipnis' 1-for-7 career mark against Haren, shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera is 2-for-20 from the plate versus the Angels' righty, while Shin-Soo Choo is a mere 2-for-11 and Jose Lopez is 5-for-27. Even the 25-year-old Michael Brantley is hitting just .214 (3-for-14) against Haren for his career, making it quite clear that the Indians will need to be especially careful from the plate in Tuesday's game.

Here are the starting lineups for game two:

1. Shin-Soo Choo - RF
2. Asdrubal Cabrera - SS
3. Jason Kipnis - 2B
