Cleveland will send right hander Josh Tomlin to the hill tonight as he faces off with righty Hiroki Kuroda. Tomlin sits with an ERA of 5.12 on the year in 10 starts and owns a high WHIP of 1.41 which is dangerous against the Yankees. WHIP measures base runners per inning so a high WHIP pitcher pitch in jams and tend to give up bigger innings. Tomlin is coming off a nice outing on Tuesday giving up just one earned run to the Cincinnati Reds in 6 2/3rds innings of work. Kuroda is just 6-7 in the 2012 campaign in 14 starts on the year with an ERA of 3.57. After five straight starts allowing two earned runs or less Kuroda last time out on June 19th surrendered four earned runs and six hits over seven innings in a 4-3 loss to the Atlanta Braves. The Yankees have won seven of their past ten games. Cleveland had a recent four game win streak snapped with back to back losses to the Houston Astros on Saturday and Sunday. They scored just four runs total in three games against the Astros in their weekend set.
