Player of the Game
Jeremy Accardo was today’s Player of the Game with a score of 1.03. In his solo inning pitched, he gave up a double and struck out 2. Accardo now has 2 awards on the season.
The Indians managed three walks (two of Carlos Santana) against David Price, even though he is a notoriously accurate thrower. Jose Lopez also had a single in the 5th inning to break up the no hitter.
Luke Scott (aka Sabertooth) has been fairly terrible all season against every team but one. Scott has destroyed the Tribe this year, hitting another home run in today’s game giving him a batting average of .424 against the Indians this year along with 9 RBI, 3 home runs, a triple, 4 doubles and 5 runs scored. The team he has played next best against is the Toronto Blue Jays where he has hit .219 with 2 home runs and 10 RBI in 8 games so far. Even Ryan Reynolds with laser eyes couldn’t defeat Luke Scott at this point if he put on an Indians jersey. Thankfully the Indians are done playing Tampa this season.
Ubaldo Jimenez turned a ‘meh’ start into a bad one as he allowed 4 runs to score in the 6th inning after he already had two outs. Scott Barnes came in for relief but allowed the 4th run to score. Barnes is only on the team right now because Nick Hagadone punched a wall and will likely be sent back to Columbus for more work in a day or two when Rafael Perez returns.
