Season 106, Game 60

Cleveland (29-30) at Chicago (36-23), 8:35 PM (STO)

Starting Pitchers:

Chicago: Javier Vazquez (7-3, 4.14 ERA)
Cleveland: Cliff Lee (4-5, 5.17 ERA)

The bullpen got younger still today, with Scott Sauerbeck DFAd in favor of Rafael Perez. I'll have more on the move after the game.

As for the game itself, hopefully this rematch of Memorial Day's pitchers ends better. Vazquez gave up five runs and eleven hits in his last start, while Lee held the opposition to two runs and six hits. Cliff hasn't had much success against the White Sox in his career, giving up 71 hits and 45 runs to Chicago in just 55 innings pitched.

Joe Crede is day-to-day with back spasms.
