Box Score: Tigers 5, Indians 3

Anibal Sanchez nearly no-hit the Indians today. Carlos Santana ended that bid with a two-out triple in the 7th inning that Austin Jackson slammed into the wall trying to catch. The Indians scored two in the seventh and one more in the eighth, but Justin Masterson ran his pitch count up and failed to make it out of the fifth inning, as the Indians fell 5-3 in game two of the series. The Tribe is now 60-86. Carry on with your college football Saturday… I know I am.
