It's time for the Trevor Bauer Power Hour (let's hope he actually lasts a full hour... in fact, two would be nice)

Starting pitchers: Trevor Bauer (R) vs. Robbie Erlin (L)

Bauer was very good in his first start of the season at Columbus. It sure would be nice to see him put up a quality start for the big-league team. Erlin means the Indians are facing left-handed starter in both games today, which is not ideal.

Starting lineups:

Indians Padres
Elliot Johnson (RF) Everth Cabrera (SS)
Nick Swisher (1B) Chris Denorfia (RF)
Jason Kipnis (2B) Seth Smith (DH)
Carlos Santana (C) Yonder Alonso (1B)
Ryan Raburn (LF) Chase Headley (3B)
Michael Brantley (CF) Jedd Gyorko (2B)
Yan Gomes (DH) Tommy Medica (LF)
Asdrubal Cabrera (SS) Alexi Amarista (CF)
Mike Aviles (3B) Rene Rivera (C)

Johnson moves into the lineup for Murphy, Cabrera gets pushed down to the 8th spot, Santana and Gomes swap positions. I think Lonnie Chisenhall should have been given the start. Let's see how he does against a lefty. Alas...
