The cheap Michael Bourn jersey Homestand continued June 3 as the Indians jerseys center fielder put his stamp on another game, leading the Tribe to a 5 3 victory over the Red Sox jerseys, the Indians jerseys fifth win in a row.
Bourn was 2 for 4, and his two run double in the bottom of the seventh inning broke a 3 3 tie and improved his batting average on the homestand to .421 (8 for 19).
The win puts the Indians jerseys in a position to run the table on this homestand. They ll send their ace, cheap Corey Kluber jersey, to the mound June 4 hoping to put the icing on a 6 0 homestand.
After spending over two weeks in last place, the Indians jerseys are suddenly the hottest team in the American League. On May 18 they were in last place in the division, 10 games behind first place Detroit.
They are now in third, 4 games behind the Tigers jerseys.
Oh yeah, and they are also 20 11 at Progressive Field, the best home record in the American League.
I hope we win everywhere, but we ve been really good here. I m glad about that, Manager Terry Francona said.
David Murphy led authentic jerseys wholesale off the bottom of the seventh by drawing the only walk issued by Sox starter Jake Peavy (1 3). cheap Yan Gomes jersey singled Murphy to second, but then the rally stalled.
Mike Aviles, who leads the Indians jerseys with four sacrifice bunts, tried to make it five, but it almost turned into a disaster. Aviles bunt was fielded by Peavy, who threw to third for the force out on Murphy, and third baseman cheap Xander Bogaerts jersey throw to first nearly got there in time for a double play.
Instead, the Indians jerseys had runners at first and second and then Bourn belted a double over the head of left fielder Jonny Gomes, driving in cheap Yan Gomes jersey and Aviles, to give the Tribe a 5 3 lead.
He feels good about himself, Francona said of the surging Bourn. He understands the impact he has on our team, and he s enjoying it immensely.
Nick was on a nice roll at Triple A, and we felt it was a good time to get him back here, Francona said. That was a big leverage situation he came into tonight, and he handled it well.
The Indians jerseys jumped all over Peavy in the first inning, banging out five consecutive singles and taking a 3 0 lead.
Just when it looked like the Indians jerseys had Peavy on the ropes, he rope a doped them. Starting with the last two outs of the first inning, Peavy retired 17 of the next 19 batters he faces, including 14 in a row.
That allowed the Red Sox jerseys to chip away at the Indians jerseys lead. House to make it 3 1. In his third major league start House was solid, giving up two runs in 5 2/3 innings, and holding Sox cleanup hitter David Ortiz hitless in three at bats.
I watched him on TV when I was in junior high school, House said. It s pretty cool to get the chance to face him and have some success.
In the sixth inning, House walked Jonny Gomes leading off the inning. Gomes later scored on a two out single by No. 9 hitter Jonathan Herrera, off cheap Marc Rzepczynski jersey.
Boston tied it the seventh inning of their former teammate, Scott Atchison, who relieved Rzepczynski and gave up back to back doubles to Bogaerts and cheap Dustin Pedroia jersey to start the seventh inning. Pedroia s hit drove in Bogaerts to make it 3 3.
The Red Sox jerseys could have done even more damage in that inning. The Indians jerseys intentionally walked Ortiz, putting runners at first and second with no outs, but Atchison retired Jonny Gomes on an infield popup and Hagadone came out of the bullpen to strikeout the next two batters to end the inning.
