Grady's back in a big way. Grady Sizemore returned from his knee surgery today, and immediately belted a home run and a double. Grady hit lead-off and played center field with Michael Brantley on the bench.
Fausto Carmona had another terrific start, pitching 7 innings and only allowing one earned run. This gave Fausto his first win of the season and lowered his ERA to a more respectable 4.74. A couple more of these and everyone will be able to forget about opening day.
Carlos Santana burst out of his slump today, smashing a solo home run to right center, ending his hitless streak. Travis Hafner also hit a long bomb to right, giving the Indians 3 solo home runs against the Orioles.
The defense was back up to par again today, especially looking at Asdrubal Cabrera and Matt LaPorta. Both made multiple spectacular plays that kept the Indians in the game. The only mistake was an error by Choo that led to an unearned run.
I don't know. I guess Tony Sipp gave up a hit today. Bad, bad Tony. Don't do it again. How will you keep your batting average against below .100 if you allow a hit once.
Indians roll, sweeping the O's. Cleveland Indians 4 runs on 7 hits, Baltimore Orioles 2 runs on 6 hits.
