NOTES: With CF Grady Sizemore sidelined with a left knee contusion, young OF Trevor Crowe's stay with the Tribe will be prolonged. Crowe was initially called up over the weekend when INF Andy Marte was sidelined. Now, Crowe will stay for a little longer with the plus of playing his natural position in centerfield (although he can play all three)...Did you know that no American League team has more success (65-31) against the Rays than the Indians?...LHP Tony Sipp has not allowed an earned run over his last 11 innings of work. He has not allowed any of his 12 inherited runners to score. His .160 average against ranks sixth among all AL relievers.
