Found September 10, 2012 on Burning River Baseball:
Player of the Game In his first game back from the DL, Lonnie Chisenhall had a walk and a home run and won the Player of the Game. He was the only player who did anything worth mentioning at all and finished the game with a score of 3.18. Feathers Up Rehab Update: Both Carlos Carrasco and Hector Rondon pitched single scoreless innings in last night's game for Akron. It will be interesting if the Indians bring them up after the MiLB playoffs are over or if they go straight back to extended training. This wasn't the worst game Justin Masterson ever pitched, but it certainly wasn't anything special. It didn't really seem like he was being hit very hard until the 7th, but it doesn't matter how the other team scores when your team can't. Feathers Down Asdrubal Cabrera was kept out of the game after reinjuring his right wrist in last night's affair. It is his third game out with this injury in the Indians last ten. The Indians were fighting bad luck...

2012 has been good to Twins' Morneau

MINNEAPOLIS Minnesota Twins first baseman Justin Morneau hit two homers in Sunday's win over the Cleveland Indians, including the walk-off game winner in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Matt LaPorta hit an RBI double, giving him a score of 1.68 for the game. It was his first RBI of the season and his first Player of the Game, mostly due to being absolutely terrible during the short time he has been with the Tribe this...
