Jeanmar Gomez called up to take over for the Injured Josh Tomlin pitched a fantastic game for the Cleveland Indians tonight. Gomez didn’t give up any runs until the fifth inning tonight. Gomez wouldn’t have given up any runs if he didn’t try to play first base. On an infield hit Gomez covered first base and let the ball get by him to put the runner into scoring position. Other than that Gomez did a fantastic jog tonight. He looked like a gold Glover on one play when he made a diving stop at the mound and recovered to throw the runner out at first.
The Indians offense came alive when Fukudome hit a double scoring two runs. Then Carlos Santana came to the plate after Jim Thome drew his 1,000 walk as an Indians and Santana hit his 21st home run of the year driving in Thome and of course Santana. Jack Hannahan decide hey why not join the party. The Hannahan hit hs sixth home run of the year driving in two runs. The Indians scored 6 tonight all 2 runs at a time. They scored 2 in the third and 4 in the sixth and never really looked back.
Hannahan has really been coming a live lately. He had three hits tonight. Fukudome has been hitting around .320 in the last 20 games, he is really coming alive now. Fukudome said he is just starting to get use to the American League central pitchers.
It looked like the Indians were going to get some outside intervention by the way of the Minnesota Twins and the Kansas City Royals. The Royals had the lead over Detroit until the 8th when Detroit came back to tie the game at 1. The game went into extra innings. The Twins had a 3-0 lead over the White Sox until the fourth when the Sox scored three to tie it. The Royals regained the lead in the fifth and then the Sox scored 3 more to tie the game again in the bottom of the fifth.
The Indians looked like they were going to walk away tonight with a 6-1 win, then they brought R. Perez in to make it interesting to say the least. He gave up a run in the ninth with one out and a man on second Acta had a premonition and decided to get Rafael out of there while the Tribe was still up. Pestano came in and punched out the next batter for two outs. Tribe was still up 6-2 and needed one more out. Pestano would get the nest hitter to ground out to Asdrubal who threw him out at first and the Indians win over the A’s tonight 6-2
The Detroit Tigers came back and won it in the tenth inning 2-1, the Tribe won’t gain any ground on the Tigers tonight. The White Sox scored five runs in the fifth to take a 8-6 lead over the twins at the time of this article.
