Player of the Game
It was the Carlos Santana show today as he was a huge contribution to the offense. Santana hit a home run in his first at bat, singled in his second, and doubled in his third. Santana ended the day with a score of 6.31, going 3-5 with 2 runs scored and 2 RBI.
The Indians offense took a great approach in the first 3 innings facing Minnesota starter, Esmerling Vasquez: Don't swing. In his short outing, Vasquez walked 5 batters. The offense took advantage of this as they even hit 2 sacrifice flies to score a couple runs.
Russ Canzler continues to succeed at the Major League level. He has now hit in all 7 games he has played in. His hit today was a big one, an RBI single in the 5th inning that scored the go-ahead run for the Indians.
The Indians tied the game in the 8th when Jason Donald hit a triple that scored Brent Lillibridge, who was hit by a pitch.
Good thing there are expanded rosters, because the Indians sure have been...
