SAN FRANCISCO — Something will have to give over the next three days when two of the season’s worst teams in interleague play, the Cleveland Indians and San Francisco Giants, meet in a series that begins Monday night.
Indians right-hander Josh Tomlin and Giants lefty Matt Moore, each struggling through a losing season, will square off in the opener.
The Indians are the American League’s losingest team in interleague play this season, having gone 3-11. Their .214 interleague winning percentage is better than just one AL team — Oakland (2-8, .200).
Coincidentally, the first-place Indians were swept by the A’s in the three-game series to open the season’s second half on the east side of the San Francisco Bay.
