Tonight's game, well, actually last night's game now, had all of the makings of a Disney movie. Laffey was facing Slowey. Because the game started at 8 PM Cleveland time and went past midnight into 11 innings, you may have become Sleepy. Getting up for work tomorrow, you may be Grumpy. Heck, even Doc was needed as Victor Martinez went down hit by a pitch (but he's OK) and Mike Redmond was removed from the game after re-injuring his left thumb pinch hitting. Casey Blake played Dopey as he ran from 1st to 3rd on a no out, deep fly ball by Grady Sizemore in the 7th inning that was caught and Casey was doubled off 1st. Blake's miscue probably cost some runs as the Indians continued to rally and load the bases with 2 outs but failed to score. Still, this game was nothing to be Sneezy about as the Tribe continued their never quit style of baseball. Travis Hafner certainly was not Bashful tonight as he hit 2 home runs (one tying the game in the 9th inning) and a game winning sacrifice fly in the 11th inning to make all Indians fans Happy!
