CC Debut

In his 1st game of the season, CC pitched 5 2/3 innings, threw 94 pitches, and helped the Tribe to a 2-1 win over the Twins.
The 'power play' of the game came by the power hitting "Pronk" Hafner, only not how you would guess. Hafner takes a pitch to his right elbow, with bases loaded, to put the Tribe ahead.
And the fans went 'yay'.
Meanwhile, CC  gave up one run on five hits, walked one and struck out seven. He threw 94 pitches, 60 for strikes. "I knew that was my limit because I was on a pitch count," he said.
Pretty exciting game eh. The team is producing so much excitement the big topic among Clevelands sport stations is this one, 'Should Wedgie shave his mustache?'
But hey, its early yet. The weather doesn't allow for a team to heat up. April baseball keeps the 'sap' from flowing.
