Sowers looks to rebound against Twins

Apr 23, 2007 - 1:47 PM Cleveland (8-7) at Minnesota (11-7) 8:10 pm EDT

MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Trying to bounce back from the worst outing of his young career, Jeremy Sowers takes the mound for the Cleveland Indians against the Minnesota Twins on Monday.

A 23-year-old lefthander, Sowers (0-1, 5.17 ERA) was knocked around by the New York Yankees last Wednesday. He lasted just 2 2/3 innings, getting roughed up for six runs and nine hits.

Sowers had allowed just three runs over 13 innings in his first three starts. In 14 starts as a rookie in 2006, he went 7-4 with a 3.57 ERA.

The Twins counter with the resurgent Carlos Silva (1-1, 2.00). The burly sinkerballer has been a pleasant surprise thus far for Minnesota, allowing just four runs in 20 innings over three starts.

Silva barely made the Twins' rotation this season after a disaterous 2006 campaign in which he went 11-15 with a 5.94 ERA. The righthander earned his first win of the season Wednesday at Seattle, allowing three runs in 6 1/3 innings.

Minnesota is returning home after a 4-2 road trip. However, the Twins lost two of three games at Kansas City over the weekend. The Indians are 2-4 on an eight-game road trip.
