Indians Vs. Red Sox Preview: Series Tied 1-1, Cleveland's Josh Tomlin Faces Felix Dubront

Having split the first two games of the four game series, both the Cleveland Indians and the Boston Red Sox will try to grab the upper hand on Saturday. Boston is hoping to put together a rare back-to-back win, and Cleveland is looking to prevent their first back-to-back road losses of the year. Josh Tomlin (1-2, 4.67 ERA) will take the hill for Cleveland, facing Boston's Felix Dubront (2-1, 5.01 ERA).

Tomlin has had a few strong outings lately, holding opponents to five runs in his last 13.1 innings. He struck out a season high eight in his last start, a no-decision Cleveland victory over the Chicago White Sox. He'll be hoping for an offensive effort more resembling that the Indians made on Thursday, where Michael Brantley went 4-5 with 2 RBI. The Indians left 14 men on base in Friday's game, including 10 in scoring position.

First pitch is at 7:10pm EST, with weather for game time looking clear and a bit warm.
