The Cleveland Indians have definitely struggled with with pitching. They have had ten players make starts and  star Fausto Carmona (2-6 7.42) has had a struggling year so far. Their offense has had trouble helping Cliff Lee (4-6 2.94).The Tribe's overall record has shown a disappointing start (29-42).

         The Pirates will take advantage of these lacks in performance. Hot hitting Andrew McCutchen will hopefully not stop here but keep up hitting and climbing the rankings in triples. No one can cool down Sanchez. Nyjer Morgan looks to work the stick much better even if the pitchers " are poppin the fuzz". Moss seems to be getting out of his slump as well.
