Justin Masterson needed to return to the form he had last season as the Cleveland Indians went out to play the Current World Series Champs in St. Louis. Masterson did exactly that, he did it so well the Indians didn’t even give him any run support either. How many time did we see that last season. The Cleveland Indians lost to the Cardinals 2-0, this is the teams first shut out all season. The Indians bats were silenced as Justin Masterson pitched a great game.
The Indians did this same thing so many times last season to Justin Masterson, it is going to happen. The Indians can’t win every night and they played a great game one in the series against the Cards. Hey there is plenty of good news Indians fans, the Indians are still in second place, Masterson looked as though he is returning to the form we saw last season and if he can continue to do so, he will be a big help to the Indians down the stretch.
There is plenty to be happy for in Cleveland with your Cleveland Indians. The team is in the middle of a rough time and they continue to win. Some of the Tribes best players were out with injury and other guys were able to step up and keep the Indians in the race. The Indians are seeing some more production coming out of Johnny Damon, this in itself is great with Hafner being out.
If the Indians can go into other teams ballparks and come out with a series win, the Tribe will be there in the end. The end is what matters, not what happens on June 9th folks. Hang in there, if Masterson is coming into his own and Ubaldo Jimenez continues to do what he has done lately the Cleveland Indians will be there in the end. The end is when we need them to be there. Not what happens on June ninth.
Lets see if our Cleveland Indians can go out and get the series win in St. Louis tomorrow.
