Here’s to a great week!
Indians 8, Tigers 1
Yonder Alonso, Edwin Encarnacion, and Melky Cabrera all homered for the good guys, helping Corey Kluber cruise to his 13th win of the season. With the victory, the Tribe improved to 57-47 and hold a very comfortable lead in the AL Central.
Our favorite lefty is still looking to fine tune his delivery. From Jordan Bastian:
Beyond ensuring that Andrew Miller is healthy, the Indians want to make sure the veteran relief ace has regained his rhythm on the mound before activating him from the disabled list. Based on his recent Minor League rehab outings, Miller has yet to reach that point.
”The good news is he’s healthy,” manager Terry Francona said prior to Sunday’s game against the Tigers at Comerica Park. “He just -- by his own admission -- he’s not where he wants to be on the mound.”
Thome spoke about his great times in Cleveland, his family, and his childhood dreams of making the big leagues. Congrats Jim!
