The Indians Win!

It is sad that winning a game against the Royals warrants a headline with an exclamation point, but after a six game losing streak it was a big deal. They didn't just end the losing streak, they ended it in grand fashion. The Indians started the ninth inning trailing 4 to 3. Grady Sizemore promptly homered to tie up the game. Three batters later Travis Hafner crushed a two run homer to end the game.

Hopefully, this win will lead to a winning streak to get them back into contention. It seemed obvious to me that the pressure was getting to some of the players. Victor Martinez in particular is slumping badly. I realize the manager likes having Martinez' bat protecting Hafner in the lineup, but he needs a day or two off.
