Indians Vs. Orioles: Cleveland Looks To Climb Back Over .500 In Sunday's Series Finale

Josh Tomlin will take the ball for Cleveland in Sunday's rubber game against the Baltimore Orioles at Progressive Field as the Indians look to keep pace in the AL Central.

With Saturday's loss, Cleveland fell back to .500 on the season and to 3 1/2 games back of the Detroit Tigers in the division. Tomlin (5-6, 5.51 ERA) took the loss in his last start Tuesday in Tampa Bay after allowing four runs in 5 2/3 innings, though he's posted a 3.61 ERA in his past five home starts.

Zach Britton walked six in his 2012 debut against Minnesota and did not get an out in the fifth inning. The young lefty threw 100 pitches and just 54 strikes in that outing, allowing four runs and earning a no-decision.

Roberto Hernandez, formerly Fausto Carmona, will rejoin the Indians Sunday in Cleveland before beginning a Minor League rehab assignment. He has not pitched in the Major Leagues this year due to his arrest in January in the Dominican Republic on suspicion of age and identity fraud.

First pitch is slated for 3:05 p.m. ET from Progressive Field and the game will be televised on STO.
