Player of the Game
Jason Kipnis continually proves to be the spark plug for the Indians offense and today he came through in every possible way. He knocked in the first run in the first inning with a sacrifice fly, then later knocked in another with a single. He ended the day with a double in the eighth inning. He also walked twice during the game, allowing him to reach base safely in his final four at bats. His POG score of 4.74 helped him to win his team leading 11th award on the season.
C.C. Lee finally made his Major League debut today after being set back almost a year by elbow surgery. He looked good, if a little wild, as he threw 1.1 innings, giving up a walk and a hit batter, but allowing no runs. He came into the game in the fifth with no outs after Ubaldo Jimenez had allowed a single and successfully navigated that inning without allowing the inherited runner to score.
