Player of the Game
With four RBI and a run scored, Shelley Duncan won his tenth Player of the Game of the season. Of course this all came on one hit as Duncan scored all the Indians runs on one grand slam.
Shelley Duncan hit his first career grand slam, giving the Indians a four run lead in the fourth inning.
In an extreme rarity, Joe Smith and Vinnie Pestano combined to allow two runs in the 8th inning, breaking open the tie game. Smith allowed a couple runners without getting a single out and Pestano allowed them to score on a couple of singles and a sacrifice fly.
