After a series in Detroit, the Angels head down to Cleveland on Friday to kick off a three-game set as part of their nine-game road trip. Right-hander Danny Salazar takes the mound for the Indians, opposing rookie lefty Andrew Heaney for Los Angeles.
Salazar had a bit of a hiccup his last time out, allowing four earned runs on eight hits in 4 2/3 innings in New York against the Yankees. Prior to that start, though, Salazar was locked into the best groove of his career, a seven-start stretch in which he posted a 1.45 ERA over 49 2/3 innings with 48 strikeouts.
