Cleveland looks for first win at Progressive Field.

The Cleveland Indians resume regular season play on Saturday afternoon when they continue their home series with the Toronto Blue Jays.

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.
