Cleveland at Tampa Bay, 7:10 PM (STO)

Starting Pitchers:

Cleveland: CC Sabathia (2.14 ERA, 11 PRC)
Tampa Bay: Edwin Jackson (8.31 ERA, 1 PRC)

Lost in the general furor of yesterday's game was that Fausto Carmona did in fact go more than three innings. In fact, he pitched really well considering who he was facing.

Edwin Jackson was once regarded as THE top pitching prospect in the game, but hasn't lived up to the accolades. It's been four years since his major-league debut, but command issues have torpedoed his good stuff. After a stint in the bullpen, he's back starting for the Devil Rays, but the early returns haven't been good.
