Maroth tames indians.

Jake Westbrook had finally gotten his offense to provide him run support in his last few outings but tonight he would suffer the same fate he has all season.

Cleveland would only score twice after they put up 16 runs on 27 hits in mondays doubleheader. Detroit starter Mike Maroth, who has not lost to the indians since 2003, went 6.2 solid innings surrendering only 4 hits throwing pitches where he wanted and how he wanted, never giving away what was coming.

Eric Shelton brought home Carlos Guillen as Magglio Ordonez would follow up with a 2 run homer to right field to put the tigers ahead 3-0 in the 3rd inning. Aaron boone connected in the bottom half for a solo home run. The indians would not score again until Jhonny Peraltas solo shot in the 9th. Troy Percival would earn the save.

Its not that Westbrook had a bad outing, he just made one mistake that inevitably cost his team the game. He went 5 innings striking out 6 and gave up 5 hits. Jake falls to 6-10 with an era of 4.51.

Tonights Attendance was 18,478.

C.C. Sabathia will look to feed off his dominant performance against baltimore last week as he goes against Right hander Jeremy Bonderman. first pitch is 7:05 EST.

Note: Rookie sensation Fernando Cabrera, who was called up monday from Buffalo, pitched 3 scoreless innings with 4 strikeouts. Cabrera is speculated to be the indians future closer but will be gradually worked into the role as he will make relief set up appearances if he stays in the majors this year. The kid has solid stuff and averages 97 on his fastball.
