Finally, a Streak!

Well it's only at two games, but a streak's a streak. For the record, this was the first time the Tribe notched consecutive wins since May 13-15. And it seemed even longer than that. CC Sabathia went the distance, allowing only 5 hits and striking out 5. It was also the Indians' shortest game of the year at just 2 hours and 6 minutes. I guess that's what happens when you have poor hitting and great pitching. Again the bats were unable to give CC much run support, mustering only one run on 9 hits. But who am I to complain? I'll take any sort of wins at this point. And CC's ERA is down to 4.34, which is really impressive when you consider how badly he started the year.

CC: Soon to be traded, or regaining Cy Young form?

The Tribe will look to enter uncharted territory (3 straight wins!) when Paul Byrd faces Nick Blackburn tonight at the Prog. We owe Blackburn one since we gave him his first major league win back in April...

Cavs Update: Daniel Gibson underwent successful ankle surgery yesterday at some place called 'The Roger Clemens Sports Institute' (I wish I was making that up). Get well soon Boobie. Brian Windhorst also gives some updates on Sasha, Andy, and Z.

Browns Update: Terry Pluto and Tony Grossi weigh in on LeCharles Bentley's future with his hometown team. And news wasn't all good on the Browns front yesterday, as we learned Joe Jurevicius may not be ready for the season opener.

I imagine the Roger Clemen's Institute as a place where they have Viagra gumball machines.

Hmm...where's that at again? LOL
