Moyer (7-3, 4.58)           Washburn (5-3, 3.06)

Jamie Moyer goes for his 200th career win against Willie Ballgame's personal punching bag. Washburn's ERA is terrific, but his peripherals tell a different story - his walks are up and his strikeouts are down from last year, when his ERA was more than a run and a half higher. What he does do well is keep left-handed batters in check, but he can be exposed against righties, which should make things a little easier for Beltre/Sexson. As for Jamie, the key will be keeping the ball away from Vladimir Guerrero's wheelhouse, which is roughly the size of Delaware.
