Player of the Game

Mr. Pure Rage, Chris Perez runs away with today's Player of the Game honors for pitching just one inning and getting a strike out. With the Indians down by 7 in the 8th inning, this was not a save situation. Perez, with a score of 1.27, has finally achieved his first PoG this year.

Feathers Up

Ezequiel Carrera stole a base, that has to be positive, right?

There were no errors today, so the Athletics had to earn all of their runs.

Feathers Down

In the first 2 innings, the Indians had great opportunities to score, but failed to succeed. Ezequiel Carrera started the game with a bunt single, stole second, and found himself at third with just one out and ended the inning there. In the 2nd inning, there were runners at first and second with just one out, and both failed to advance. 

Justin Masterson tried to keep his team in the game, but the challenge appeared to be too much. He kept the game close (within 2 runs) until the 5th inning, when he gave up 2 lead off singles and a home run to Coco Crisp. By the end of the 5th inning, the Tribe offense was down by 6 runs.

Another shut out, another loss. With their recent road woes, the Indians now find themselves in 4th place in the AL Central, behind the Kansas City Royals. Next stop: Seattle. We shall see what King Felix and his club have in store.
