How good is it to see Justin Masterson back where the Indians were hoping he would return to? Masterson is the only starting pitcher the Indians have so far this season they can count on. He pitched a complete game against the White Sox and picked up his 3rd win in as many starts this season.
Justin Masterson, struck out 7 while only allowing one base on balls. He allowed 5 hits in the game and didn't give up any runs. It is great to see Masterson return to the form he had in 2011. The Indians needed him to step it up this season and show the kind of leadership the team needed in its starting rotation.
The Indians picked up their 4th win of the season by beating the White Sox 1-0. The Tribes only run came in the ninth inning when Nick Swisher, singled to right field and Bourn scored. The Indians offense continued to struggle, they only had 1 hit from Jose Quintana who pitched 7 good innings of the White Sox.
One player the Indians have to be concerned with at the plate is, Jason Kipnis who is hitting .125 so far this season. He has struggled at the plate since last season and it is clear this season he is still having problems hitting the ball.
Kipnis was an important part of the Indians offense and for some reason he has been unable to find his groove at the plate. The entire team struggled against the White Sox offensively last night, but it is Kipnis that I am a little concerned about.
