5-28-08: Sox 6 - Indians 5

May 28, 2008 - Cleveland, Ohio

Hanging on for the rebound.

Alexei Ramirez showed everyone exactly what he was made of today. He tempted fate by tagging at third and coming home. He avoided the tag by Victor Martinez, but didn't miss his leg. The next time Ramirez scored, he pulled up lame rounding third base. He did score on the play, but not before looking like he would leisurely walk there holding his right thigh. To Alexei's credit, he finished the game with no problems.

Joe Crede provided plenty of spectacular defense. Gavin Floyd gave up just enough for the win. Orlando Cabrera definitely needs to work on his bunting skills. In two attempts, it looked like a spectator stood in for him at the plate. But Jermaine Dye continued being locked in with another home run. It's a good thing too, because Bobby Jenks makes my heart stop when he puts two on with nobody out.

The good:
Alexei's heads up dash for the plate.

The bullpen did a wonderful job of holding the Indians right where Gavin left them.

The bad:
Bobby Jenks is skating on thin ice, but manages to come out smelling like a rose.

DeWayne Wise was 0 for 4.

The ugly:
Gavin Floyd's throwing error.

Orlando Cabrera's bunting skills.

The Sox took the rubber match, but not without causing a few headaches for the fans watching. It seems like a carefully placed penny on the railroad tracks may cause this train to derail. Let's hope not. The Rays are in first place and playing the Sox next.
