Tribe Gets Back to .500!

The Cleveland Indians climbed back to the .500 mark for the first time this season since May 18th. This was a great team effort tonight as the Indians beat Justin Verlander and the Tigers by a score of 6-3.

There were no residual incidents from the brawl the night before. However, a special tip of the hat goes out to Gary Sheffield for the added impetus he gave the Indians by being Gary Sheffield last night.

Jeremy Sowers started for the Tribe and it wasn't an easy time as he battled back early and often from trouble to earn his 4th win of the season.

Big hits again came from Shin Soo Choo and Jamey Carroll, two guys that have really made strides to become everyday players for this exciting team.

What's next?

Scott Lewis goes against Dontrelle Willis tomorrow as the Tribe looks for the sweep, as well as to go 1 game over .500!

Lewis has pitched 14 scoreless innings since being called up from AAA ball just a couple of weeks ago.

There isn't a nicer guy in the game than Dontrelle Willis and I wish him much luck, after tomorrow. Dontrelle has had his struggles this year so look for our Tribe to complete the sweep!

78-77 record... very impressive last season run. Just think... that's a better record than the D-backs have in the NL, and they're 3.5 back in their division.
