this spring…Cleveland’s offense touched Halos starter Jered Weaver for 3
runs in the contest, including 2 first inning tallies on a JASON KIPNIS RBI-

across another run with his third-inning fielder’s choice, but the Tribe was kept
off the board for the remainder of the game…DANNY SALAZAR made his
