Streaking Indians look to sweep Tigers

Sep 21, 2008 - 4:12 PM Detroit (71-81) at Cleveland (77-77) 1:05 p.m. EDT

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- The Cleveland Indians will go for their sixth straight win on Sunday when they host the Detroit Tigers.

Coming off a sweep of the playoff-hopeful Minnesota Twins, Cleveland has won the first two games of the series with Detroit. The Indians have beaten their American League Central rival six straight times.

Rookie Scott Lewis (2-0, 0.00 ERA) looks to continue Cleveland's momentum - and his own.

The 24-year-old lefthander has allowed six hits and two walks over the first two starts of his career, striking out eight over 14 innings. Lewis threw six scoreless innings against the Twins last Monday.

Detroit will counter with lefthander Dontrelle Willis (0-1, 8.82), who will make his second start since being recalled from the minors.

The maligned 26-year-old allowed three runs over five innings against Texas last Monday, but again struggled with his control, walking five. He has issued 26 walks over 16 1/3 innings this season.
