Angels 7, Indians 11
By the end of the second inning, the Cleveland Indians had a commanding 7 run lead thanks largely in part to Bradley Zimmer’s first career grand slam. Fast forward to the end of the sixth inning and the game was all tied up. It took an extra two innings and another grand slam, but the Indians came out on top and took game one by a score of 11-7 .
Everyone has talked a lot about Michael Brantley’s offensive resurgence this season, but rarely has anyone talked about the defense that he provides in left field. In last night’s game, Dr. Smooth flashed the leather and helped to preserve a tie game.
Shane Bieber has made his way through the Cleveland minor league system and made a strong impression in his Akron debut on Tuesday night, going 6.2 innings and allowing only five hits.
Tito loves his large bullpen, and it won’t be long before his bullpen is back up to at least seven and potentially eight.
