Indians Vs. Rays: Starting Lineups For Tuesday

Still in third place in the American League Central after Monday's win, the Cleveland Indians will look to stay on pace in game two from Tampa Bay on Tuesday evening.

Leadoff hitter Shin-Soo Choo will seek to continue his red-hot summer from the plate on Tuesday, after finishing 2-for-4 with a pair of key doubles in the opener. Choo is smashing opposing pitchers to the tune of a .327 average in July, which is actually slightly lower than his impressive .333 mark over the entire month of June.

Pitcher Josh Tomlin will open the game for the Indians on the mound in search of his sixth victory of the season. Tomlin served up a gem against the Rays back on July 5th before the All-Star break with seven innings of one-run ball where he allowed a mere two hits.

Here are the starting lineups for Tuesday:

Indians
1. Shin-Soo Choo - RF
2. Asdrubal Cabrera - SS
3. Jason Kipnis - 2B
4. Michael Brantley - CF
5. Jose Lopez - 3B
6. Carlos Santana - DH
7. Shelley Duncan - LF
