Box Score: Indians 9, Angels 5

The Indians battled back from a disastrous fifth inning in which the Angels batted around, scoring 5 runs and taking the lead- all after the Indians botched a double play that would have gotten them out of the inning unscathed. The Tribe pushed ahead with 14 hits, and then survived two rain delays to get the win.

  • Collin J.

    What oh what are we going to do about Carlos Santana?

  • CaliCavs

    Hannahan owes McCallister for bloating what should be a pretty decent ERA

  • truth hurts

    Play Marson. Better defensively. Better offensively. Handles pitchers better. Am I missing something?

  • Jack

    Santana has been pretty good defensively. Certainly has a better arm than Marson.

    But it honestly looks like he’s not even trying at the plate…He just takes hurricane cuts at everything. Really strange.

    Have we ever heard him speak? Does he care? Is he a head-case? What’s his work ethic like?
