Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Cleveland Indians: Starting Lineups, Probables

Tonight is the first game of three between the Cleveland Indians and the Arizona Diamondbacks, with the first pitch being thrown at 6:40 PM tonight at Chase Field in Phoenix.

Both teams are faltering, with the Indians being swept in San Francisco and Arizona dropping two in a row to Detroit after starting their AL Central road swing 4-0.
