After taking two of three from the Orioles to open the season, Cleveland has dropped seven of nine, including last night's 12-4 loss to Kansas City. Rookie first baseman Travis Hafner ended an 0-for-27 slump on Sunday when Royals right fielder Dee Brown misplayed a fly ball into a double. Hafner hadn't had a hit since the second inning of Cleveland's 4-2 victory over the Orioles on April 2. Indians outfielder Karim Garcia has been out of the lineup for the past five games with a cyst on his left hand. Garcia, a former Oriole, hit a home run off Rodrigo Lopez on Opening Day at Camden Yards. Sabathia held the Orioles to two runs over seven innings in that game. Tonight, the Orioles will get their first look at Davis, a rookie who hasn't finished the fifth inning in either of his first two starts.
