The Cleveland Indians were facing another loss in Minnesota when they sent pitcher David Huff to the mound. Huff was able to shut down the Minnesota scoring machine, he stepped in for Tribe starter Jeanmar Gomez who was having a hard time controlling the strike zone. Gomez gave up 4 runs on 3 hits, he walked 4 hitters and the Indians were once again facing a deficit being down 4-0. When David Huff took over he looked the an Ace.
Huff pitched for 3-1/3 innings gave up no hits, didn’t walk a batter and struck out 4. Where has this kind of pitching been in the second half. Huff pitching so well allowed the Cleveland Indians to mount a comeback. The Indians mounted a successful come from behind when to beat the Twins 7-6. Two of the Twins runs came on a rare occurrence, one came from the Tribes set up man Vinnie Pestano who has pitched lights out this season and the other came off Indians closer Chris Perez.
Lets hope David Huff can continue to make showings like we see here. It is a positive and the Indians can use all the positives they can get right now.
