The Cleveland Indians didn't waste any time in dealing with the Detroit Tigers in game-2. The Indians put their first two runs on the board in the second inning. The first run scored when Rajai Davis hit a deep double to left field, allowing Ramírez to score, and sending Lonnie Chisenhall to third base.
Then Naquin hit a ground ball to second base and he drove Chisenhall home. It was all Indians offense after that. Cleveland had 13 hits in the game, scoring 12 runs.
Carlos Carrasco was on the mound and he pitched six pretty good innings. He stuck out 5. walked 3 and only gave up one run. The Tribe is now one-game away from sweeping the Tigers again this season.
The Indians have beat the Tigers in 11 games thus far this season. For some reason the Indians have Detroit's number this year. With the win the Indians move to 51-32 on the season, they have a 7-1/2 game lead over the Tigers in the American League Central, and are 8-games ahead of the Kansas City Royals.
Cleveland will finish their series against the Tigers today. The game starts at 12:10p.m..
Then it's the New York Yankees next. The Tribe will host a 4-game series against the Yankees, before breaking for the All-Star game. Get down to Progressive field and support your Cleveland Indians folks. I heard the Indians released some standing room only tickets for the series against the Yankees.
