Box Score: Blue Jays 0, Indians 1

What a great way to start off the second half. Justin Masterson was, well, masterful, and the usual duo of Vinnie Pestano and Chris Perez was dominant in the final two frames.

A solo shot in the second by Travis Hafner was all of the firepower the Indians offense needed to improve to 45-41 on the season. This was a crucial victory with both Detroit and the White Sox leading as of the completion of Cleveland’s game.
