The Indians won their fifth game in a row and their third series in a row to remain atop of the AL Central standings. The Indians now stand at 12-7 and have won every series they have played this year except for the 3 game ass whooping at the hands of the Yankees.
After hanging on to an 8-7 victory in 11 innings last night the Tribe took advantage on the quick turnaround for an afternoon game today an knocked out the Rangers to the tune of a 9-4 clip.
Wednesday's game was low lighted by a bad sixth inning for C. C. and a worse ninth inning for Joe Borowski. But the Indians hung in there and pulled out the win. A solid, yet unspectacular outing by Paul Byrd this afternoon allowed the Tribe to secure their second consecutive 2 game series sweep.
Despite Wednesday's late inning hiccups this is a game the Indians always found a way to lose last year. Also, a good showing for the day game after a night game as Texas was never really in it.
Up next, a 3 game visit at The Jake from the Baltiwhore Orioles. Can the Tribe stay on fire?
