Indians Vs. Angels Preview: Cleveland Looks To Rebound Against Haren

The Cleveland Indians (40-39) hope that Tuesday's game at Progressive Field will be nothing like Monday night's.

On Monday in the first game of the series, Jared Weaver dominated the Tribe -- he gave up five hits in seven innings en route to a 3-0 win for the Los Angeles Angels (45-35).

Game 2 will see Dan Haren take the mound for the Angels. He already has a win in Cleveland this season. On April 28, he yielded one run and struck out seven in eight innings of a 2-1 victory. Haren has not been great lately, however. The right-hander has a 7.94 ERA in his last four starts, despite a 3-1 record. In his last start, he gave up six runs in six innings but was still credited with a win, as Los Angeles beat the Blue Jays 9-7.

Zach McCallister will pitch for the Indians. His record is 2-1 and the team is 4-1 in his starts. Last Thursday, he gave up two runs in five innings in a 7-2 win in Baltimore.

The first pitch will be thrown at 7:05 p.m. ET. It can be seen on SportsTime Ohio.
