Indians Vs. Angels: Starting Lineups For Tuesday's Game

Manny Acta's Indians will aim to keep the good vibes going on their AL West road trip on Tuesday night from Los Angeles, as Cleveland plans to send righty Ubaldo Jimenez to the hill in game two of the series.

Indians hitters clipped Los Angeles starter C.J. Wilson for three runs (two earned) early on in Monday's opener, and then proceeded to rack up three more tallies against a shaky Angels bullpen in a 6-2 victory.

Slotted at the designated hitter position for game two will be second baseman Jason Kipnis, who will yield a night in the field at second base to reserve Jason Donald. Donald is hitting a meager .209 on the year with just one home run, but has recorded a hit in four of his last five appearances.

Here are Tuesday's lineups:

Indians
1. Jason Kipnis - DH
2. Asdrubal Cabrera - SS
3. Shin-Soo Choo - RF
4. Carlos Santana - C
5. Michael Brantley - CF
6. Casey Kotchman - 1B
7. Jason Donald - 2B
8. Jack Hannahan - 3B
9. Ezequiel Carrera - LF
Ubaldo Jimenez - SP

Angels
1. Mike Trout - CF
2. Torii Hunter - RF
3. Albert Pujols - 1B
4. Kendrys Morales - DH
5. Mark Trumbo - LF
6. Alberto Callaspo - 3B
7. Howie Kendrick - 2B
8. Erick Aybar - SS
9. Chris Iannetta - C
Zack Greinke - SP
