Indians Vs. Reds: Tribe Goes For Sweep On Wednesday Night

After participating in four slugfests over the course of two weeks, the Cleveland Indians and Cincinnati Reds battled in a nail-biter on Tuesday night when Asdrubal Cabrera hit a walk-off, two-run homerun in the bottom of the tenth inning to complete a 3-2 win in the Tribe's favor. Now, the team is in position to avenge a sweep at the hands of their in-state rivals by putting together a sweep of their own on Wednesday night at Progressive Field.

The projected starters are Bronson Arroyo for the Reds and Justin Masterson for the Indians. Arroyo is 3-4 with a 3.84 ERA over 82 innings pitched in 13 apparences this season, while Masterson is 3-6 with a 4.38 ERA over 88.1 innings pitched in 14 starts this season. Both Arroyo and Masterson are 1-3 in their last four decisions.
