Indians update

The Indians were expected to contend for the postseason after making it to the American League Championship Series in 2007. But instead, they're in last place in the AL Central and dealt ace CC Sabathia to the Milwaukee Brewers. The Indians are 6-4 in their past 10 games. Bright spots include center fielder Grady Sizemore, who ranks second in the AL in home runs and sixth in stolen bases, and shortstop Jhonny Peralta, who is batting .276 with 19 home runs. Tonight's starter, Fausto Carmona, returned from injury July 26 and has struggled in three starts since. The Orioles will miss facing Cy Young Award candidate Cliff Lee. The series is the first meeting between the teams this season.
