Once again headlines should read MASTERFUL MASTERSON
Masterson , Vinnie and Chris Perez combined for a shutout. In fact Masterson was fantastic he pitched 7 innings of shutout ball giving up 5 hits, 1 walk nad manged 5 strikeouts.
Vinnie conducted a perfect inning of work that led to another hold (24). In the inning he struck out 2.
The Perez came in during the 9th and was perfect as well, striking out Lind to end the game resulting in his 25th save.
The bats were decently quiet. fortunately for the Indians Hafner hit a solo bomb in the 2nd that they would rely on for the entire game. There was a threat later in the game but it started with Kipnis getting picked off (had he not got picked off they probably would have scored again) when after a hafner pop out two straight hits probably would have driven Kipnis in and probably had an oppurtunity for some more but as it is the Indians supplied enough for the win
MVI- (who else) MASTERFUL MASTERSON
Good- Fantastic pitching, no error game (despite a play from Kipnis to Carlos), Hafner bomb
Bad- Little offense
