For some odd reason, Jhonny Peralta hit everything thrown in his direction tonight.
5-5, three doubles, three runs batted in, a home run and three runs scored.
That brought his average all the way up to .257, a little bit more respectable. He's also had seven straight hits.
And all of a sudden, Eric Wedge is looking a little bit like a genius.
Now come on here..
The comeback came a little short.. The second Swisher home run hurt a bit, and the fact that Jeremy gave up both of those jacks with TWO outs.
It also stung that Jeremy gave up the three spot after we took the lead. It looked like it was going to be a good night offensively and it was. But the pitching did not hold up their end of the bargain.
Hey, thumbs up to the bullpen tonight. Squirrelly Cheeks Mujica and Joe Borowski pitched two scoreless and sandwiched in between that Mastny had the three innings. For five innings of work, one run is not bad.
Shin-Soo Choo had two hits for two RBI as well.
The Indians did out hit the White Sox, so that's encouraging. Gotta get a better starting effort though, and oh look at that.
Tomorrow we got a doooooozy of a pitching match-up. Cliff Lee will try to stop ANOTHER three game losing streak against John Danks who's been awesome this year. [BOXSCORE]
