Indians Vs. Rays: Josh Tomlin Goes For Another W Over Tampa Bay

Following Monday's 3-2 win, the Cleveland Indians will go for their second straight victory over the Tampa Bay Rays.

And so will Tuesday starter Josh Tomlin.

Tomlin, 5-5 with a 5.45 ERA, last pitched in Cleveland's 3-1 win over the Rays on July 5. In that one, the right-hander pitched 7.0 innings and gave up just two hits and one run. He also didn't walk a single batter, the first time he'd accomplished that feat since April.

Matt Moore, 5-6 with a 4.42 ERA, will start Tuesday for Tampa Bay. Moore pitched against the Indians on July 7, giving up five hits, five walks and five earned runs in 4.2 innings.

The Indians are 6-4 over their last 10 but might need to pick it up to keep pace with the red-hot Detroit Tigers. Detroit is 8-2 over its last 10 and has passed Cleveland in the AL Central standings: The Indians are 3.0 games back of the Chicago White Sox, the Tigers 2.5 games back.

First pitch Tuesday is scheduled for 7:10 Eastern.
