Game 47: Indians (23-26) @ Orioles (24-22), 12:35

Ubaldo Jimenez takes the hill against his former club for the first time. Cleveland counters with Corey Kluber.

This beautiful weather we are having in Maryland has seemed to have had an impact on the O's bats. They have scored at least seven runs in three straight games. Unfortunately, it has also been working for the opponents too, as the last week or so has been as bad as the rotation has looked all season.

Jimenez will look to right the ship when he faces his former teammates for the first time since leaving Cleveland over the winter. His last four outings have followed a pattern. One game he will fail to get through six innings, the next he will throw seven scoreless. Well guess what, last time he only made it through five.

And a real quick congrats to Chris and Jill Davis. Chris will be leaving the team tomorrow morning to go on paternity leave for the couple's first child.
