Jeremy Sowers will make his first start tonight against the Yankees after being called up from Triple-A Columbus on May 24th.

Sowers' numbers have been less than desirable over his last few starts, with a 1-2 record and a 7.71 ERA. And with Sizemore, Hafner, and Martinez on the DL, Sowers will get his chance to shine tonight.

In Sowers' career against the Yankees, he has had three starts with a 1-1 record with 11 earned runs giving him a 6.60 ERA. Look for Sowers to bounce back tonight after a strong start against Tampa Bay in his last appearance.

The Indians should be able to give him some run support scoring 13 runs in their last three games while taking six of their last 10 games.

For the Yankees, Chamberlain will start. Chamberlain has had nine starts this season with a 3.97 ERA and a 2-1 record.

The game will be aired on ESPN starting at 7:05.

Look for this one to be a great game.
