The Cleveland Indians broke their losing streak with a when yesterday, tonight they start a four game series against the Red Sox. The Red Sox on paper are a much tougher team than the Twins, the Indians vs Boston red SoxIndians will be sending Ubaldo Jimenez to the mound to open the series against Boston. Hopefully, Ubaldo got a lift in spirit from Justin Masterson’s performance.  Jimenez has had an up and down season, he has had games when he looked like the Jimenez of old, then he has had games when he has looked terrible too. The key is the first few innings, if Jimenez can hit his stride early by hitting his spots he could dominate the Red Sox Hitters.

The key will be how many guys Jimenez walks, this is when Ubaldo gets into trouble. If Jimenez walks to many guys then gives up the long ball against the Red Sox the Indians could find themselves down by to many runs to come back. This has been the Indians problem since returning from the All-Star break, Jimenez has to go out and give the Indians at least 6 good innings tonight if the team is going to extend their winning streak to 2 games in a row. Jimenez knows what a win means to the Indians and he is looking forward to helping his team get their second win in a row for only the second time since the Break…
