Indians win 6th straight game!

Last night the Indians won their sixth straight game! While at the end of the season every game will count equally, the last couple have been especially satisfying. These are the sort of games a contending team needs to win. On Wednesday, the starting pitcher C.C. Sabathia got knocked out of the game early and left trailing 6 to 2. The bullpen came in and pitched 7 & 2/3 innings of scoreless baseball. The next night Kevin Millwood in his first game off the disabled list could only go 5 innings and left leading 2 to nothing. The bullpen again came in and pitched well giving up just one run in 4 innings. The called third strike for the last out was clearly ball four and would have meant two men on base with a one run lead. So, Wednesday they won a game that should have been lost and then on Thursday they won with a little luck. To get back in contention this team is going to need good fortune like that and more offense.

Additionally, thanks to Omar Vizquel's 5 for 6 effort the Giants beat the Twins 14 to 7 which leaves the Tribe 3 games behind the Wild Card leading Twins.
