Chicago at Cleveland, 7:05 PM (WKYC)

Cliff Lee goes for win #20 tonight. The last Indian pitcher to win 20 games was Gaylord Perry, who did it way back in 1974. Wins have become less indicative of a pitcher's worth over the last thirty years, but consider this: in only three of his 19 wins did not meet the modern definition of a quality start (6 innings, 3 runs). And of his four no-decisions, only one wasn't a quality start.
