The Cleveland Indians beat the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park, in Boston, Massachusetts. That's not an easy task, but the Indians made it look easy. Josh Tomlin got the start, and if you remember Tomlin in the Pitcher that put the Tribe into first place with a win back in June, and the Indians were at the top of the Central ever since.
Tomlin pitched 5 innings in Boston last night. He struck out 4, walked only one batter and allowed just 4 hits by the Red Sox. He gave up two earned runs, but it didn't matter much after Coco Crisp hit a home-run blast that scored two.
It was a story book ending in the ALDS, for Indians manager Terry Francona. He won a lot of games while managing the Red Sox at Fenway Park, but none of those wins made him as happy as what we saw last night.
Not many gave the Tribe a shot at beating the Red Sox in this series, but they forgot the heart of this Indians team. Every player on this team plays an important role, and you can see it in almost every game.
Now the Indians will take on the Toronto Blue Jays in the battle for the ALCS. The first game takes place in Cleveland this Friday, October 14th. I can wait to see how this series plays out.
This team is magical, and has been for most of the season.
