Struggling Westbrook looks for turnaround vs. Tampa Bay

Apr 22, 2007 - 2:33 PM Cleveland (7-7) at Tampa Bay (7-10) 1:40 pm EDT

ST. PETERSBURG, Florida (Ticker) - Jake Westbrook has struggled to start the season, but he gets a chance to pick up his first win against a team he has had success against.

Westbrook (0-2, 12.08 ERA) gets the start as the Cleveland Indians look to take the rubber game of a three-game series against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays on Sunday.

The righthander is 5-2 with a 4.21 ERA lifetime vs. Tampa Bay. He is looking to rebound from his shortest outing of the year when he surrendered eight runs and eight hits in 1 2/3 innings in a 10-3 loss to the New York Yankees on Wednesday.

The Devil Rays will counter with James Shields (1-0, 5.40), who will make his first career start vs. Cleveland.

Shields allowed five runs and nine hits in 6 1/3 innings in his last start in which he received no-decision in a 9-7 win over the Baltimore Orioles.

Ty Wigginton went 3-for-4 on Saturday as the Devils Rays posted a 6-5 win.
