3/8: Indians at D-Backs
It’s a cold, damp morning in Tucson, but the rain should hold off enough to get today’s 3:05 p.m. ET/1:05 p.m. MT game at Tucson Electric Park in.
Today’s game can be heard live on Indians.com, with Jim Rosenhaus handling the play-by-play duties. I’ll be guesting with Rosey in the bottom of the first, so tune in.
The Tribe is essentially going with a JV lineup today, but Jake Westbrook will be making his first start of the exhibition season and his first start against a Major League club since May 2008.
