Russell Martin not starting on Sunday for Blue Jays

Kluber was scratched from Friday's start due to lingering neck discomfort.

The Tribe is hoping a healthy Salazar will be able to solidify the starting rotation, which has been rocky at times outside of stars Corey Kluber and Carlos Carrasco. "It's nice to put his name in there every fifth day".

Entering play on Friday evening against the aforementioned Blue Jays, the first-place Indians now own a 48-45 record despite sitting atop the American League Central Division.

Michael Brantley hit a two-run homer in the sixth and had three RBI. "We need to go home", said Toronto manager John Gibbons, whose team went 3-7 on a 10-day trip that ended Sunday.

Cleveland starter Danny Salazar, in his first major league appearance since June 3, allowed one hit in seven scoreless innings, with eight strikeouts and no walks. Francona decided earlier in the week to push his next start back a couple of days.

Francisco Lindor's home run leading off the bottom of the 10th inning lifted the Cleveland Indians to a 2-1 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday night at Progressive Field.

Edwin Encarnacion flied out but Jose Ramirez walked on four pitches and Guyer lined a 2-2 pitch to the gap in left-center. For Lindor, it was his 15th home run of the season, his second walk-off hit, and his first career walk-off home run.

"After the first inning, I actually thought Happ threw pretty well".

Cleveland outscored Toronto 23-5 in the three games.

"Hopefully, these three games can jump-start us into playing better and more consistently", Kluber said.
