Jimenez (9-12, 5.62 ERA) struggled in his last start, allowing eight runs on eight hits and two walks in four innings as the Indians fell to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. It was a step back for the erratic righty, who struck out ten batters in six innings vs. the Boston Red Sox on Aug. 9.
Meanwhile, the Indians have lost five straight games, and are now 1-5 on the road trip. They still have time to right the ship at least a little bit, but they'll have to pitch a whole lot better than they did vs. the Oakland Athletics, who averaged seven runs per game while sweeping the Indians over the weekend. Here are the lineups:
Seattle will send veteran righty Kevin Millwood (4-10, 4.28 ERA) to the mound. First pitch is slated for 9:10 p.m. CT.
