Making your major league debut must be nerve-racking enough. But making it knowing that within four batters of your big-league career, you could be forever known (to those who care to know such things) as "that guy who gave up Alex Rodriguez's 600th home run" must mean even more pressure. So that's all probably running through the mind of tonight's Indians starter, 25-year-old Josh Tomlin, as he prepares to take the mound at Progressive Field for the first time. As for A-Rod, today's his 35th birthday, and if you're wondering, he's hit five career home runs on his birthday, including two in 2002.
