Derek Lowe was fantastic despite getting the loss. He would have had a no hitter if the 3rd inning wouldnt have happened. But during the 3rd toronto burnt lowe terribly. It all started going sour when derek started the inning by walking the lead off hitter, J. P. Arencibia would single, that would score 1 due to a steal given up while Big Ben struck out. Colby Rasmus would single as well bringing in Arencibia, Batastia would single (not bringing anyone in) Edwin Encarnacion would walk and Adam Lind would walk too bringing in a run. Other than that inning Derek Lowe allowed 1 baserunner (occurring on a walk).
Carlos Villanueva owned the Indians today allowing 3 hits and walked 5, and struck out 8. Jason Frasor came in and held the indians in the 7th to a hit ,not allowing a run. Then Darren Oliver came in and closed out a 2 inning save giving up a hit.
The main problem today was coming up with a hit in scoring position going 0-10… that was the PROBLEM
MVI- Derek Lowe
Good- Derek Lowe’s pitching, Michale Brantly came up with big hits
Bad- 0-10 with RISP not going to win
