Indians-Tigers Preview

(AP) -- The Cleveland Indians snapped a three-game string of poor starts by their pitchers, but they couldn't find enough offense to protect against a late bullpen collapse the last time they took the field.

In Wednesday night's opener of a weather-shortened series against the Detroit Tigers, Zach McAllister draws the tough task of opposing Anibal Sanchez, who looks to continue his dominance over the Indians.

Cleveland (6-7) had three straight starters surrender five earned runs while failing to throw five innings prior to Sunday, when Corey Kluber limited the White Sox to two runs over 7 1-3 innings. The Indians took a 3-2 lead heading into the ninth before Alexei Ramirez hit a two-run walkoff homer off closer John Axford to send Cleveland to a 4-3 loss, its fourth in five games.
