Cleveland, OH (92.3 The Fan) – The Indians are looking to sweep the Blue Jays on Sunday afternoon. They've won the first three games of this series. 

Mike Clevinger is on the mound for the Tribe. The 28-year-old didn't allow a run in his first start this season. The Indians' lineup looks a little different than normal. Jake Bauers moved to designated hitter. Hanley Ramirez has the day off. Manager Terry Francona thought it was important to give the veteran back-to-back off days going into their upcoming road trip. 

Bauers made a great catch in Saturday's win over Toronto. He has the potential to evolve into an everyday outfielder.

The Indians' bullpen hasn't allowed a run in seven-straight innings. They've pitched well over the past two days. If they can continue to play at that level, than this Indians team is going to be tough to beat. 

Sunday is their last game at Progressive Field until April 19. The Indians' next nine games are in Detroit, Kansas City and Seattle.
