Player of the Game
With a single and a two RBI double, Carlos Santana is tonight's Indians Player of the Game. His final score POG was 3.21. This award was his fourth of the season and his first in almost a month (5/5).
Drew Stubbs broke a long hitless streak in the fifth with his first extra base hit in ten days. Overall it broke an 0-16 slump that had lasted more than five games. Stubb could almost certainly could learn a thing or two from Michael Bourn, who has become an expert at being safe without hitting the ball out of the infield.
The Indians were able to tie the game against Andy Pettitte and the Yankees in the fifth inning with a Carlos Santana two out, two run, ground rule double. The double was Santana's fifth hit in the past two days after seeing his average drop by over 100 points during the past month. It is back up to .290 now and he definitely seems to have found his stroke in the past couple of days.
