Box Score: Pirates 9, Indians 2

This game was close. I swear. You look at this and you’d think, “whelp, Ubaldo must’ve had one of those days”, but that is not the case. Jimenez did his best Dave Burba impression (6.0 IP, 4 ER, 2 BB, 4K) but the Tribe’s bats never figured out Pirates starter AJ Burnett. Both times the Indians scored (two solo shots, from Cabrera and Kotchman, respectively), Ubaldo gave up the momentum and allowed a run the following inning. The bullpen didn’t help matters; Tony Sipp did his best Tony Sipp impression and Nick Hagadone imploded for four runs in the 9th to turn this into a laugher.

The rubber match is 1:00PM on Sunday, Brad Lincoln goes for the Pirates, Jenmar Gomez takes the hill for the Indians.
