Cleveland at Kansas City, 7:05 PM (STO)

Starting Pitchers:

Cleveland: Jake Westbrook (12-9, 4.22 ERA)
Kansas City: Jorge de la Rosa (4-4, 7.04 ERA)

Portland at Akron, 7:05 PM
Eastern League Championship, Game 2 (POR 1-0)

Starting Pitchers:

Akron: Aaron Laffey (8-3, 3.59 ERA)
Portland: Thomas Hottovy (2-4, 5.03 ERA)

Laffey's peripherals don't look that promising with the exception of his ground ball ratios. Between Kinston and Akron, Laffey has a GB/FB ratio of 2.36. What's even more bizarre is that left-handers are hitting better than right-handers off the 21-year-old southpaw.
