Indians 6, Tigers 5 (box)
A huge win for the Indians last night, but there’s bound to be some missed games after this one.
First off, this entire situation was started by Gary Sheffield. Was he upset that it didn’t hit him in his elbow armor? Alas, dude leaves with a bloody nose thanks to a mean headlock.
Secondly, how did it take Andy Marte longer to get to the pile than Grady Sizemore? Just curious.
But hey, Tribe wins. Choo goes yard…twice. Four RBI for the big man. Don’t even get me started on his .951 OPS for the season. Jamey Carroll comes in clutch in the bottom of the ninth, pinch-hitting for who else but Andy Marte. Great night for a game, all around. Great Action, great coaching (yep, I said it) and great come-from behind baseball.
And no. The picture above is not of the fracas. It’s of Carroll getting mobbed after his walk off hit, by those teammates still remaining on the field.
Jeremy Sowers and Justin Verlander take the hill tonight. If the same situation goes down, my money isn’t on Sowers…
