Not much of redeeming value here, especially given the circumstances. There was bad hitting approaches, bad fielding, and poor relief pitching. All to the delight of the Yankee Horde in attendance.

The Indians faced two of the better pitching prospects in baseball plus Mariano Rivera, so they weren't going to explode for seven runs as in their last game. But the offense had a hand in the four-hitter, too. It's a good thing the Tigers are pitching like the Indians are hitting.
