Player of the Game
Shin-Soo Choo ruled this game as he did yesterday, but in even more impressive fashion this time. Choo had four hits and scored four times as well. He also hit a solo home run and knocked in another two runs as well. His final score was 9.48, his best game on the season. Lou Marson scored a 6.11 and was a home run away from the cycle as he went 4-5 with a walk, three runs scored and an RBI. Jose Lopez and Asdrubal Cabrera also had scores over 5.50 as they both knocked in and scored at least one run.
The Indians out hit their performance last night with 19 hits and 11 runs scored during their day game today. Every player made it on base except for Aaron Cunningham (hitless in his last 8 appearances). Even more impressive, 5 different players scored runs (lead by Choo with 4) and 6 different players had RBI (lead by Choo and Lopez with 3 each).
Josh Tomlin was one player that was not amazing tonight as he threw just 6 innings and allowed 5 runs. He did however earn his fourth win of the season.
The Orioles will have a new DH for tomorrow’s game. Indians fans know him well as the man who wouldn’t retire when he should have. Jim Thome has officially been traded from the Philadelphia Phillies to Baltimore.
