Game Thread: April 8, 2008

Gametime: 10:05 (STO)

To salvage some fragment of hope from last night's debacle, consider this: last April 19th, Joe Borowski couldn't hold a four-run lead at Yankee Stadium, giving up a walk-off home run to Alex Rodriguez. (You remember the game, but here's the box score if somehow you've excised that painful experience from your memory). The loss brought the Indians' record to 6-6, which was the low-water mark for the season; the Indians won 10 of their next 12 games and never sniffed .500 again.

Jamey Carroll's back in the lineup, still at second, but this time subbing for Jhonny Peralta. Asdrubal Cabrera will play shortstop, which will improve the infield defense behind Jake Westbrook, tonight's starter.
