July 8th (the day of the all stars [haha])


There was no score in the first but in the second the indains started it out with hafner getting hit by a pitch.  Next, brantly, got a base hit moving hafner to second.  Carols grounded out sending hafner to 3rd and brantly to 2nd.  kotchman would knock hafner in with a basehit.  Then lopez would ground into a double play to end the threat.  The rays failed to score in the 3rd but the tribe didnt, it all started with a johnny damon triple in which he would score on a error on james shields for trying to pick him off but failing.  A cab and choo both got out but kipnis got a double and would be brought in by hafner on a fielding error by Jeff Keppinger.  No further runs would score in this inning and again the rays failed to score but again the tribe did, casey kotchman lead off the half inning but nobody else would do anything.  The 5th the rays would fail to score again but the indians striked again. Kipnis got a basehit, hafner grounded out which advanced kipnis to 2nd.  Brantly would walk.  Carlos grounded into a fielder’s choice (getting brantly at 2nd) and kipnis advanced to 3rd, then kotchman singled knocking in kipnis.  Then Lopez struck out.

Then the start of the “all star preformance” from a cab. After the indians recorded an out, carlos pena hit a ground ball that should have been an easy play for a cab but he tossed the ball and pena as a result recieved a base hit out of the manner.  Then the indians should have had an easy double play but a cab dropped a catchable kipnis toss putting runners on 1st and second (that of coarse was rulled an error)Luke Scott would then double bringing 2 rays in. Jeff Keppinger would walk.  Desmond Jennings would then double bringing in 2 runs,then acta would go to the bullpen bringing in smith to stop the bleeding (despite the fact McAllister did not allow an earned run) he did.  Nobody would strike again until the bottom of 8 when choo would hit a solo shot. The indians would score no more.

Perez then came into the game saving 25 straight games, or something like that but that wouldn’t last after giving up a lead off home run to Will Rhymes (his first in two years).  Elliot Johnson would triple and carlos pena would hit a triple bringing him in.  Ben Zoberist would bring in the go ahead run in with a basehit and unfortunately that s all she wrote.

MVI- McAllister

Good- “, pretty good offensive production, anyone not an all star

Bad- Both all stars (Perez and a.cab)
