Player of the Game
Shin-Soo Choo, Asdrubal Cabrera, and Russ Canzler all battled to be today’s Player of the Game, but it was Cabrera who came out on top. Asdrubal walk, hit 2 singles, scored 2 runs, and stole a base to combine for a score of 2.52.
The Indians offense finally came through today with 5 runs, which was enough to edge out the Tigers. Main contributors to the offensive performance were Asdrubal Cabrera, Russ Canzler, and Jack Hannahan, each with 2 hits, and Carlos Santana with 3.
Ubaldo Jimenez had a solid outing. He pitched 6 full innings, allowing just 2 earned runs. He only stuck out 2 batters, but he was able to control the game enough to leave the game with the lead.
The Indians allowed yet another unearned run. This time it came as a result of a Ubaldo Jimenez throwing error.
Joe Smith, who has been solid and reliable all season, was not so solid today. Smith gave up 3 singles and a Miguel Cabrera home run in the 7th inning, which, at that time, gave Detroit a one-run advantage.
