Yes, it does say Willie Harris DH. I wonder if Valdez picked up the flu that was going around?
Justin Masterson, RHP
3-6, 4.38 ERA
Masterson turned in one of his best outings of the season Friday against Pittsburgh. The sinkerballer threw seven shutout innings, allowing four hits and striking out nine. Masterson has thrown three consecutive quality starts.
• Shin-Soo Choo has fared well against Arroyo, going 6-for-12 with four home runs and seven RBIs
For the Indians, Justin Masterson looked like the ace they expect him to be in his previous start. After three straight losing decisions, the right-hander threw seven shutout innings against the Pirates on Friday. Masterson allowed just four hits and struck out nine for his first victory since May 24.
Masterson's four-seam fastball clocked in as high as 96 mph. Manager Manny Acta said his slider was the sharpest it's been all season. And Masterson's signature sinker was ultra-effective.
