Tribe Tramples Twins in Game 2.

The Tribe trampled over the Minnesotta Twins in game 2 of the
series between them. Cliff Lee pitched eight innings, only giving
up one run and Rafael Perez pitched a perfect inning to win the game
for us in the 9th. The Indians had good offense the whole night, even getting
hits off of the new rookie for the Twins. First the bases became loaded, and
Victor Martinez and Choo hit singles, and eventually it quickly became 2-0,
and after that, Jhonny Peralta hit a three run homer to cap off the 5
run inning. Then the Tribe added more runs off of some base hits, and eventually
the Indians won with a final score of 10-1.

Cliff Lee and Carlos Gomez had a brawl on the field, exchanging words
and getting intercepted by Victor Martinez ( thank goodness ) who knows
what would have happened if he hadn’t been there? The media thinks it was
about Carlos Gomez’s earlier at bat, where he tried to bunt with two strikes and
no outs, and got strike three called. Cliff Lee supposedly said something to him
about that, and I honestly dont blame him. The radio people were making fun of
Carlos after that, probably more that Cliff Lee did. There are a lot of opinions on
that brawl, and that’s perfectly fine with me, I’m just glad it wasn’t worse than it could
be.
