Indians In big spot, Tribe turns to Kazmir vs. old club

Quote:
The Indians last hosted the Mets in 2010, and New York swept a three-game set from Cleveland. That season, the playoffs were nowhere in sight for the Tribe. Getting swept by the Mets was a rough patch in a season that included many more.

On Friday, the Indians will be hoping history doesn't repeat itself.

Cleveland remains in striking distance of the second American League Wild Card spot, and has a chance to build momentum against the young Mets. Former New York prospect Scott Kazmir will start for the Indians, while Zack Wheeler will be on the mound for the Mets.

For the past six games, the Indians have battled the Tigers and the Orioles, the latter of which Cleveland is chasing in the Wild Card race. Playing well this weekend could go a long way toward providing momentum at a crucial time in the season.

Kazmir was drafted by the Mets in 2002, but they traded him to the Rays two years later in a deal for Victor Zambrano. This will be the 29-year-old's first opportunity to pitch against his first professional organization.
