9/8: Indians vs. Rangers, Game 1
Let’s play two.
It’s 2:50 p.m. ET, and the tarp was brought back on the field a few minutes ago. The sun is out, but perhaps the grounds crew knows something is coming. If the 5:05 p.m. ET start time is in jeopardy, I’ll let you know.
Both of today’s games will be on STO and WTAM. You’ll find these lineups look pretty familiar.
UPDATE (4:05 p.m. ET): The tarp was just pulled. It appears we’ll be good to go for the scheduled start time.
INDIANS (60-76): CF Michael Brantley, SS Asdrubal Cabrera, RF Shin-Soo Choo, 3B Jhonny Peralta, DH Travis Hafner, 2B Luis Valbuena, LF Matt LaPorta, 1B Andy Marte, C Lou Marson. RHP Carlos Carrasco (0-1, 18.00).
RANGERS (76-60): LF Julio Boron, SS Elvis Andrus, 2B Ian Kinsler, CF Marlon Byrd, RF Nelson Cruz, DH David Murphy, C Ivan Rodriguez, 1B Chris Davis, 3B Omar Vizquel. RHP Tommy Hunter (7-3, 3.14).
