The Indians try to avoid the sweep tonight as Ubaldo Jimenez takes the mound against Kris Medlen for the Braves. I knew that Wood and Medlen would be really tough, and I thought the Tribe’s best chance was last night against Paul Maholm. I knew Atlanta was an extremely good team, and that they would be tough to beat. I hoped the Indians would at least pull out one win of the three; to do so, the offense will have to try and wake up against Medlen.
Jimenez is coming off a decent start against Minnesota, where he gave up 2 ER and 5 hits in 6 innings pitched. He took the loss as the Tribe fell 5-1, but it was a respectable outing. You’re not going to win many games scoring just a run or two, which is what the Indians have seen so far this week.
