Sox in Cleveland
Game 2 in Cleveland with Anthony Ranaudo in the office today. You will remember Anthony who hit his first home run when he pitched for us in his first game.
After 2 there is nothing on the board for either side. Starting to look like a pitcher’s duel
Indians open the scoring with a 2 run homer. Sox – 0 and Indians – 2
J.B Shuck with a single to open the 3rd, Tim Anderson goes “Yard” with J.B on base for a 2 all ball game. Tyler Saladino singled and got caught stealing 2nd to end the inning. Solo shot by the Indians and its 3 to 2, after the Indians runner tagged on the fly out, he is home from 3rd and it’s a 4 to 2 Cleveland lead.
Jose Abreu opens the 4th with a single. Jason Morneau with a double has Jose at 3rd, Todd Frazier with a double and it’s a tie ball game at all. 4 to 2 to 6 to 3, J.B out and Todd home for a 5 to 4 lead. The mistake at 2nd not getting the out just cost us a run with a tie at 5 all.
Michael Ynoa in the office, The lead off walk has haunted us again, standing at 3rd, runner safe at 2nd, single to right and it’s a 7 to 5 lead for Cleveland(we are missing Brett Lawrie, he always seems to fire us up) Here comes Robin after the office keys,(you can see by Michael’s body language that he is disappointed in himself.0 tommy Kahnle on the way to the office.
Melky lost it in the lights (E – 7) Indians with a double. the official scorer did correct and take away the error.
Dan Jennings with the office keys, fingers crossed he can hold things.
Top of 8th and Melky finally with is hit, everyone in the lineup now has a hit
Todd with a single but on an error Todd is at 2nd, J.B safe at first. Timmy at the plate, holy cow the pond is full, Dioner Navarro with a blooper to left and its drops in getting Todd home for a 1 run led by Cleveland 7 to 6. HELL YEA KIDS, its a GRAND SLAM by Spanky for a 10 to 7 SOX LEAD
David Robertson with the keys to save this and lock up, Robbie with the dangerous lead off walk, now is a good time for a rack’em up(double play) , with help from J.B the office lights are out, that strike out now has the office door closed (2 outs)
With the help of Todd and Jose (throw from 3rd to 1st) this office is locked up , Game Ova
**Final Score – Sox — 10 and Indians — 7
Carlos Rodon will open the office tomorrow in the rubber game of the series.
