Player of the Game

Josh Tomlin pitched very effectively tonight. He recovered nicely from his bad outing against the Reds last week. Tomlin pitched 6.2 innings and gave up just one run on 6 hits. The only thing that really hurt him was a wild pitch in the 1st inning that eventually led to the only run he allowed. Tomlin's outing tonight won him his 3rd Player of the Game of the season with a score of 4.46. Asdrubal Cabrera was a close 2nd with a score of 4.36 after his walk-ff home run.

Feathers Up

The bottom part of the line up continues to produce, especially Casey Kotchman. Kotchman had 2 hits tonight and drove in the Indians first run. He has now hit in 5 straight games.

Today's game was a complete turn around from yesterday's slug-fest. Both starting pitchers today's minimized hits and base runners. Josh Tomlin and Mike Leake both pitched into the 7th inning, allowing just one run each.

Esmil Rogers came in for Tomlin in the 7th inning with 2 outs and the bases loaded. Rogers faced Devin Mesoraco, and after 9 pitches and many foul balls, Rogers got the strike out to get out of the inning.

The defense had several great plays tonight. Michael Brantley, Shin-Soo Choo, Jason Kipnis, Casey Kotchman, and Joe Smith each had plays that are worth seeing again.

Milestone Alert: With his walk-off home run in the 10th inning, Asdrubal Cabrera now has 50 home runs as a Cleveland Indian.

Feathers Down

The Reds scored both of their runs tonight as a result of wild pitches. Indians pitchers could have easily pitched a shut out if it weren't for the 3 wild pitches, one by Josh Tomlin and 2 by Nick Hagadone.

Play of the Game

After a the lead off hitter reaches in the 8th inning, Casey Kotchman makes a nice catch in foul territory.

Final Score: Cleveland Indians 3 - Cincinnati Reds 2
