The Indians won their first exhibition game of the season 5-2. Ronnie Belliard's three-run homer and Ramon Vazquez's two-run single accounted for the Indians' scoring. Jake Westbrook allowed both of the runs and 5 of the Astro hits.
The JV bullpen (Cabrera, Brown, Mujica, Sipp, and Tadano) allowed just one hit and struck out 7 over their 5 innings.
Note that I'm probably not going to do these recaps for every game this spring, but the first game of 2006 definitely called for one. Besides, I need some practice for the regular season.
