Break Out The Brooms & Have Yourself A Grand Salami

Going into the Tribe’s game tonight, a sweep & another massacre by us seemed to good to be true for some people, didn’t it? Boy, did we show those people! At first, the Tribe had a 1-0 lead on Grady Sizemore’s lead-off homerun. Then, the Mariners came out & had a 2 run first, making it 2-1. I was shocked, because Cliff Lee usually never does something like that! Those runs didn’t matter anyways, because Cliff Lee pitched fantastically after that. The Tribe kept on keeping on, & piled run after run on the Mariners. Jhonny Peralta hit a grand slam in the 5th inning for the Tribe, & extended our lead. Grand salami time had come! Eventually, the Tribe closed out the game, & won 12-3.

That means this : The Indians outscored the Mariners 31-6 in the three game series. The Tribe belted out 9 homers in three games. We swept the Mariners, & rolled over the best pitching in the AL. We are in 4th place still, & have ourselves a pretty good lead over the struggling KC Royals. We have won 4 games in a row, & tied our record for most wins in a row during this year. It also means..we have a chance to break that record tommorow. Not bad for a road trip, eh? I’m pretty happy about this turnaround. What a difference a week makes!

The Tribe also has news regarding the Mark DeRosa trade, they have picked the “player to be named later.” Jess Todd, a pitcher, has been picked by the Tribe to close off the deal. Todd is 4-2 with 24 saves & a 2.20 ERA in 41 appearances with AAA Memphis. His  opposition is hitting .214 against him. I think he will help us a great deal. He also leads the Pacific Coast League with his 24 saves.

Last but not least, here are some of the best plays during the series against the Mariners. There are some homeruns in the videos, & a great homerun saving catch by the Tribe’s Chris Gimenez. I will put the links below.

Until Next Time..

    i still say signing your ace to an extension makes more sense than trading him, if they have faith in Martinez and the big man turning it around.

    Great game, and great series! Sounds like the Tribe took their bats with them on the road and are hopefully gaining some confidence as they improve their record and get some wins 🙂 Good luck with the next series!

    what a west coast trip the Tribe are havin, amazing, now remember it’s not impossible to come back from 12 games down in a division this far out…and with the Twins and Sox beating eachother up the next few days and Tigers in Texas this could be a big week for the Tribe…
