The two teams nearly played a double-header in the opener as the Indians blew a 4-1 lead in the ninth inning which led to a 7-4 in for Toronto in the 16 inning after J.P. Arencibia finally broke the tie with a three-run homer.
The Indians will try to get their offense going against right-hander Brandon Morrow while the Indians counter with a right-hander of their own Ubaldo Jimenez. Both Jimenez and Morrow enter the season trying live up to early-career expectations that have been disappointing so far, as their respective teams hope they can provide a boost as the number two starter.
The game is slated to start at 1:05 p.m. ET and will be televised on SportsTime Ohio.
