Player of the Game

Tony Sipp pitched strong in relief today, which was enough to win him Player of the Game honors. Sipp came on with 2 outs in the 6 inning and continued to pitched through the 7th. He did not allow a single runner and struck one out, giving him a score of 1.82. After 90 games into the season, Sipp finally wins his first PoG.

Feathers Up

Tribe hitters took advantage of walks as they inched their way back. Their first run came in the 4th inning when Jose Lopez hit a sacrifice fly with the bases loaded. Their next run came in the 5th inning when Jason Kipnis singled Lou Marson home. The Indians offense drew 4 walks in the first 5 innings.

Josh Tomlin has a wonderful moustache.

Feathers Down

Josh Tomlin is coming off of a strong start, but he quickly got behind in today's game. He gave up a lead-off single (Shelley Duncan's marvelous defense held him to a single) and then a 2-run home run to Carlos Pena, giving the Rays an early lead. The inning continued with a walk and a Luke Scott triple (which should have been a single if Shin-Soo Choo cut it off properly), giving the Rays their 3rd run of the inning. Josh Tomlin gave way to Tony Sipp in the 6th inning after allowing the Rays to score their 4th run.

The Indians only managed 4 hits today, one to each of the first 3 batters in the line up and one to Casey Kotchman. All of the hits were singles. They were lucky to score 2 runs on just the 4 hits. They did, however, have several opportunities to score with the bases loaded.

Play of the Game

Shin-Soo Choo sldes to cut off a ball and misses, allowing a single (or double) to turn into a triple.

Final Score: Cleveland Indians 2 - Tampa Bay Rays 4
