The Indians try to take the series finale and go 3 for 4 in Texas tonight when T.J. House faces off against Nick Martinez. House might be looking the end of his current MLB stint in the face as Zach McAllister is nearing the end of his DL stint. House has performed better than any of us probably expected and I for one would love to see a solid left hander in the middle of our rotation very soon.

Martinez is a rookie, which doesn't bode well for your Cleveland Indians. He has bounced back and forth between the rotation and bullpen and has struggled a bit his last two times out, giving up four runs in less than 6 innings both times. Hopefully the offense can get things moving early and force Ron Washington to not only go to the bullpen, but need to rely on the less effective members as well.
