Player of the Game

Shelley Duncan got lucky and played a short night, but still had enough time to win the Player of the Game. Duncan had 2 RBI from a sacrifice fly and a solo home run. The 4.47 score was good for his 4th award of the year, but just his first since May 25th.

Feathers Up

Zach McAllister was wonderful against tonight as he has been every time out so far. This time he threw 6 innings and could easily have thrown a shutout had it not been for a terrible throw to second base by Jack Hannahan. McAllister also struck out 5, including the first two batters of the game. Officially, he gave up three runs and 8 hits on the night. Not too bad against the Angels.

Progressive Field was rocking tonight, at least before the second rain delay emptied most of the crowd. The crowd of 29,292 was the most for a game that didn't occur on a Friday or Saturday other than Opening Day. The stands looked mostly full (outside of the extremities of the upper deck) and even Burning River Baseball was in attendance. We will be returning for tomorrow's game as well and will be in the Indians Social Suite for the Fourth of July game. Expect pictures from both games as well as a special report about the Suite coming soon.

Feathers Down

Aaron Cunningham deserves a blown save and a delay of game for that silly display of run scoring he put on in the 9th inning. With a very comfortable 3 run lead with Chris Perez ready to come in, Cunningham hit an RBI single, extended the game enough that another hour long rain delay was needed and increasing the lead by enough to keep Perez from increasing his league leading saves total.

Play of the Game

The Indians scored two runs on a ground out to first by Michael Brantley when John Hester was unable to corral a throw by Albert Pujols. Jason Kipnis scored easily from third, then Jose Lopez came around from second and beat the second throw to the plate which came from the backstop.

Final Score: Cleveland Indians 9 - Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 5
