Toronto at Cleveland, 7:05 PM (STO)

Starting Pitchers:

Cleveland: Jeremy Sowers (6-3, 3.44 ERA)
Toronto: Shaun Marcum (2-3, 5.88 ERA)

Sowers' penultimate start of 2006. Jeremy has had success mainly because he's getting hitters to hit his pitches: he's only thrown 3.5 pitches per plate appearance. There are concerns going forward with him: he's leaving runners on at a 78.1% clip, an unsustainable mark. And he's been helped more by his defense than any other starter on the staff.
