Indians Vs Rays: Cleveland Looks To Bounce Back From Disappointing Loss

After winning three straight games, the Indians dropped game two of their four-game home series against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, 10-3, on Friday. On Saturday at 6:05 pm EST, the Indians will try to regain their previous momentum and attempt to head into the All-Star break with a couple more wins under their belts.

The Indians will put the ball in the right hand of Ubaldo Jimenez, a talented but up-and-down pitcher who has dropped three of his last four decisions and is 7-7 with a 4.59 ERA this season.

Jimenez is 2-3 in his last six starts with a 2.93 ERA in 40 innings as he's been instrumental in the building of the team's confidence.

"He's pitching like a No. 2 or No. 1 guy right now," Indians manager Manny Acta told MLB.com.

Jimenez will face Matt Moore who has also pitched well recently. In his last 10 starts, Moore is 4-3 with a 3.28 ERA with 65 strikeouts.
