The Cleveland Indians got a big hit from Grady Sizemore and another great outing from Jake Westbrook to help them win their second ballgame in a row and keep pace with the Detroit Tigers and New York Yankees.
Westbrook threw 8 innings of 2 hit, 1 run baseball at Chicago’s U.S. Cellular Field to pick up his third victory of the season. Westbrook struck out 5 on the day. Joe Borowski picked up save #31 on the season. I never realized that Borowski has such a New Yorker accent. This guy sounds as though he was plucked straight out of Staten Island.
Sizemore again was the hero for the offense, managing a 2-out, 2-run single in the 5th inning that would stand up as the difference in the ballgame. Sizemore has now driven in 64 runs on the season.
