Zach McAllister makes his first major league start since May 21st against the Tigers. He was lit up that day, giving up four runs in two innings and promptly being sent to the DL with a sever case of suck. The Indians won that day, though, completing a three-game sweep of Detroit and starting a surge that would see them move within two games of first place. Maybe The Attach can ignite the Indians again, but perhaps this time he can do it with good pitching.

Sox starter Scott Carrol shut down the Red Sox on Monday, throwing six and two thirds innings of one-hit ball, but he gave up seven runs in his previous start. I hope we see the latter version of Carrol today.

Let's Go Tribe!
