Small measure of revenge

Last week Cleveland was riding a 9 game winning streak when Boston came to town. With some help from the Tribe pitching, Boston swept 3 straight. Yesterday the Indians started a 3 game series in Boston by shutting out the Red Sox 7 to nothing.
Currently, these are two teams with very different standards for offensive performance. Mark Bellhorn bats ninth and is in danger of losing playing time due to his low batting average (.231) and penchant for striking out. In Cleveland the clean-up hitter (Martinez) has just gotten his average above Bellhorn's and the third baseman and usual right fielder (Boone and Blake) are hitting well below Bellhorn (.200 and .216 respectively). If Cleveland's overall offensive attack doesn't improve on a consistent basis the team will soon be exposed as pretenders instead of contenders for the Wild Card.
