Cleveland snaps skid, down yankees.

Scott Elarton came into Saturdays game looking to fulfill the new found expectations of fans after what he did against detroit last monday.

Elarton got off to a shaky start giving up back to back longballs in the first inning but immediately settled down going 7 strong with 3 strikeouts giving up 3 runs.

Clevelands offense quickly turned the yankees lead into a deficit when they would echo the yankees sentiments as Jose Hernandez and Jhonny Peralta took Darrell May deep. The indians would tag May for 3 more when Hernandez connected for another 2 run shot into left field.

Hafner added another run on his rbi double in the 9th...which is where the story really begins.

Wedge would go to his bullpen in the 7th inning only to watch Howry, Rhodes, and closer Bob Wickman fall on their face.

Howry didnt even go one inning, handing the yankees 2 runs on a single hit. Rhodes would make it no easier when he allowed a run. this would set up for Wickman

Wickman did what he does best as Ruben Sierra blasted a high fastball into the bleachers in right field, giving the yankees another run and with no outs New york had runners on 1st and 2nd. Wickman got sheffield to ground into a double play and Alex Rodriguez would ground out to end the game.

It would be Wickmans 23rd save of the year, and an absolute miracle. This game looked like the indians were trying to lose however, they end their 4 game losing streak.

Note: Brandon Phillips was called up this morning and started the game at 2nd base. I wonder what this means for Phillips, who has been touted to be apart of this organizations future, however hes had several chances to prove himself and hes failed. This maybe a way to use him as trade bait.

oh yea, the cubs won ; )
