Cleveland at Detroit, 7:05 PM (STO)

Starting Pitchers:

Cleveland: Cliff Lee (9-8, 4.70 ERA)
Detroit: Jeremy Bonderman (11-5, 3.65 ERA)

First of all, hats off to Jake Westbrook, who somehow gutted out eight innings last night. He gave up 15 hits, but 13 of those were singles, quite a feat for Fenway.

Who closes tonight if a save opportunity presents itself? Or is this like debating Tim Couch vs Kelly Holcomb back in the day?

A nice aesthetic lineup tonight:

CF Grady Sizemore
LF Jason Michaels
DH Travis Hafner
C  Victor Martinez
1B Casey Blake
RF Shin-Soo Choo
SS Jhonny Peralta
2B Joe Inglett
3B Andy Marte
