The Cleveland Indians are going from one two game series to another, after sweeping the Minnesota Twins they'll head home to Progressive Field for a two game set against the Seattle Mariners.

Seattle's offense has been stagnant recently with two straight losses, but they'll have their ace on the mound when they start game one. Felix Hernandez has been his usual, dominant innings-eating self for Seattle so far this season with a 3-2 record and a 2.29 ERA, as usual needing more help from the Mariners offense more often than he's been getting. He'll face off with Ubaldo Jimenez from the Indians, currently struggling through the season with a 5.18 ERA and more walks than strike outs.

Ubaldo will be glad to know that they're facing a team that has been awful on the road, with 10 losses in their last 11 road matches.

The game will be at Progressive Field at 7:05 p.m. ET.
