Player of the Game
Casey Kotchman won today’s Player of the Game in style as he hit a three run home run and added another single as well. His final score of 6.73 was just enough to beat out Michael Brantley who also hit a three run home run. The Indians total team score of 32.96 was the highest of any game this season.
Burning River Baseball spent the game with a bird’s eye view from the Indians Social Suite. The Indians really know how to treat a fan/aspiring writer.
Travis Hafner was able to take his first at bat back with the Tribe easy as he didn’t have to run at all. He walked after a long at bat then scored off Michael Brantley’s three run home run.
The Indians knocked starter Ervin Santana out of the game before the end of the second inning as they scored 8 runs against him in just 1.1 innings. By the end of the game every starter had either a run or RBI and each batter had a hit as well.
For the second Indians win in a row, Chris Perez was kept out of the game.

1997 Sandy Alomar is very excited about the Indians win.
