Player of the Game Zach McAllister took his second consecutive Player of the Game and his 4th win of the season. McAllister pitched 6 innings and struck out 5 while only allowing a single Tampa Bay run. His only weak point was his control as he walked 4 batters, but who didn't during this game. A few other players had games worth mentioning as Shin-Soo Choo, Jason Kipnis, Vinnie Pestano and Chris Perez all earned more than 2.00 Player of the Game points. McAllister finished ahead of every one with 6.16. Feathers Up Rafael Perez threw his second inning of relief in Akron today and has only allowed a single hit in two outings thus far. He will need to throw a few more times in AA to be ready, but the Indians can definitely use him now that Nick Hagadone has gone and punched himself out of the big leagues. Michael Brantley walked three times while Travis Hafner walked each of his first two times up. Shin-Soo Choo, Jason Kipnis, and Casey Kotchman all took bases on balls as well. Exciting
