Indians Vs. Rays: Cleveland Goes For Series Win

At 44-40, the Cleveland Indians are in solid position to make a playoff run in the second half of the season. A win over the Tampa Bay Rays Sunday afternoon would go a long way in helping the Tribe carry momentum into the All-Star Break and keep pace with the first-place White Sox.

Zach McAllister will take the ball for Cleveland, and he's been solid since his return from Triple-A Columbus. He allowed three earned runs (five total) over six innings in his last start.

For the season, McAllister is 3-1 in six starts with a 3.93 ERA.

Tampa Bay sends righty James Shields to the mound, who's allowed 25 total baserunners over his past two starts (8 runs). He'll have to avoid the fate of Matt Moore, who allowed five early runs to the Indians Saturday. Shields has a 3.93 career ERA against Cleveland in nine starts.

First pitch is scheduled for 1:05 pm ET from Progressive Field.
