Well, Kelly found the dog! Odds are that we won’t leave her in mom’s backyard anymore.
The Indians began another 4 game series, (can’t remember the last time we did back to back four games series) this one against the Devil Rays at the Jake. Pitcher’s dual for most of the game, as Westbrook looked sharp in his second outing since the injury. He pitched seven strong, giving up only one run, and working out of a major jam in the first. Good thing too, because the Tribe couldn’t get it going offensively. Tied at 1 going into the ninth, Borowski retired the Rays with a nice pick-off throw at to first to get a pinch runner who was leaning.
Then Ben Francisco came to the plate. If you are wondering who that is, that’s ok. He has had a couple trips to the big club filling a seat when someone goes on the DL. He came up this time to replace the injured David Dellucci. Last night was his first start. Ever. He got his first hit in the fourth, then hit a blast to end the game in walk off fashion. Quite a night for the rookie, and the dog!
