Indians Vs. Cardinals: Starting Lineups For Sunday's Game

The series will be up for grabs on Sunday as the Cleveland Indians aim to bounce back from yesterday's 2-0 shutout loss in the three-game finale.

Cleveland will send righty Ubaldo Jimenez to the mound to face off against St. Louis' Joe Kelly. Despite being 6-4 on the season, Jimenez currently owns a 5.31 ERA and has yet to strike out more than six batters in a single start this year.

Trailing by 1.5 games in the AL Central race to the White Sox, the Indians will hope to get into an early groove from the plate against the Cardinals' Kelly. Cleveland hitters could only muster three total hits in Saturday's defeat, and will need to work the count much better against Kelly in his first career MLB start.

Here are the starting lineups:

Indians

1. Shin-Soo Choo - RF

2. Asdrubal Cabrera - SS

3. Jason Kipnis - 2B

4. Carlos Santana - C

5. Michael Brantley - CF

6. Jose Lopez - 3B

7. Shelley Duncan - CF

8. Lou Marson - C

9. Ubaldo Jimenez - SP

Cardinals

1. Rafael Furcal - SS

2. Carlos Beltran - RF

3. Yadier Molina - C

4. Allen Craig - LF

5. Matt Adams - 1B

6. David Freese - 3B

7. Daniel Descalso - 2B

8. Adron Chambers - CF

9. Joe Kelly - SP
