Indians Face Giants Again, With Josh Tomlin On The Mound

After facing San Francisco on Thursday night, the Indians will have a rematch with the defending World Champions tonight at 10:05, with Josh Tomlin getting the start for the Tribe (13-12 in Cactus League play).

San Francisco comes in at 18-11, and seemingly ready to begin defense of their title.

The Indians’ roster is down to 28 now with the demotion of five players yesterday, including four pitchers. Three more cuts must come before the opening of the season Friday against the Chicago White Sox.

San Francisco will send out this starting lineup against Tomlin:

1) Mike Fontenot (L) 2B
2) Nate Schierholtz (L) RF
3) Brandon Belt (L) 1B
4) Aaron Rowand® CF
5) Travis Ishikawa (L) LF
6) Ryan Rohlinger® 3B
7) Brandon Crawford (L) SS
8) Eli Whiteside® C
9) Roger Kieschnick (L) DH

Manny Acta’s Indians will counter with this lineup:

1) Grady Sizemore (L) CF
2) Asdrubal Cabrera (S) SS
3) Shin-Soo Choo (L) RF
4) Carlos Santana (S) 1B
5) Travis Hafner (L) DH
6) Orlando Cabrera® 2B
7) Travis Buck (L) LF
8) Paul Phillips® C
9) Jack Hannahan (L) 3B

Look for a recap of the game tomorrow morning, as well as a preview of tomorrow’s game against the L.A. Dodgers.
