Indians Vs. Athletics: Starting Lineups For Game Three

The Cleveland Indians have lose three-straight games and have been shutout in their last two outings, both against the surprisingly tough Oakland A's. The Tribe haven't scored a run in 24 innings, and gave up seven runs in the shutout on Tuesday. They've got two more games against the A's as they're in a four-game set, and the best they can hope for is a series split.

Cleveland's lineup won't undergo a huge makeover, however. Through the first five spots in the lineup, it stays the same and, all-in-all, only two players are being replaced. Infielder Shelley Duncan and outfielder Casey Kotchman are both out of the lineup in favor of Matt LaPorta and Ezequiel Carrera, respectively. The A's are making a couple changes, bringing in Coco Crisp and Cliff Pennington to replace Adam Rosales and Brandon Moss.

We've got the full lineups for the game below. It all starts at 7:05 p.m.
