Justin Masterson Hopes To Get Straight 'A's' Today

The Indians are right back at it this afternoon in the desert, facing the Oakland A’s with Justin Masterson getting the start for The Good Guys in a 4:05 p.m. matchup.

The Indians have been in something of an offensive funk as of late. Yesterday they scored two runs, which is the maximum that the Tribe has mustered in three of the past four exhibition games. The 5-9 Indians would do well to heat up the bats before returning to the open-air refrigerator that will be downtown Cleveland in early April.

Oakland’s lineup is not available at the time of this writing, but the Tribe is all set behind Masterson. Here is the starting batting order for Cleveland:

1) Orlando Cabrera® 2B
2) Asdrubal Cabrera (S) SS
3) Shin-Soo Choo (L) RF
4) Austin Kearns® LF
5) Travis Hafner (L) DH
6) Travis Buck (L) CF
7) Shelley Duncan® 1B
8) Jack Hannahan (L) 3B
9) Lou Marson® C

How about getting that offense untracked, fellas?
