Indians Vs. Rays: Cleveland Looks To Continue Winning Streak In Game 2 Against Tampa

The Cleveland Indians are officially streaking, while the Tampa Bay Rays are starting to falter. In the tough AL East, the Rays can't afford to keep their now two game losing streak going much longer but the Cleveland Indians are looking to keep their streak alive as we head toward the All-Star Break and they try to push themselves back up top of the AL Central.

Cleveland won the first game of their series against the Rays in a close 3-1 affair and need to keep the wins up as they try to keep pace with the surging White Sox. They'll send out Justin Masterson for game two in order to try and snag another win at Progressive Field. Masterson is 5-7 so far this season with a 3.92 ERA, but is going to have to avoid old streaks, as he is 1-6 all time against the Rays.

Tampa will send out righty Alex Cobb to take on Masterson. Cobb is 3-5 with a 4.94 ERA and is on a bad streak right now, going 1-5 in his last six games after winning his first two starts of the season. Cobb has never faced the Indians before.

The game will be at Progressive Field at 7:05 p.m.
