...and the sweeps the series

Kansas City starter Luke Hudson couldnt have imagined what walking Grady Sizemore was about to set off. It was only the bottom of the first inning...

Jason Michaels followed with a single. Hafner drew a walk loading the bases for Victor Martinez. Victor and Shin Soo Choo hit back to back doubles accounting for 2 rbis each and putting Cleveland ahead 4-0.

Ryan Garko joined in with a single and Peralta followed with a grounder to short but Royals shortstop Angel Berroa threw the ball away while trying to throw to first allowing Choo to score making it 5-0. Joe Inglett would hit a single and Andy Marte followed with a walk that once again gave the Indians a bases loaded opportunity..

The batting order restarted with Sizemore and Michaels coming to the plate. Sizemore reached on an infield single but Michaels struck out swinging but it was only the first out.

poor Luke Hudson..

Travis Hafner is absolutely unconscience this year with the bases jammed and it was no different this time as he belted his 6th grand slam of the year deep into the K.C. bullpen. The score was now 11-0 and Martinez showed the opposing pitcher mercy by ending his day with yet another double.

(from the indians front page) "The Tribe hadn't managed a first inning like this one since it scored 11 runs against the Orioles on July 6, 1954" ...however the Indians did score 10 runs in one inning against the Arizona diamondbacks last year. After falling down 3-0 early Cleveland responded when they nearly batted twice around with one out. Casey Blake hit a solo home run and an rbi double, Hafner hit a bases loaded (and clearing) double and sizemore and peralta went back to back.

Cleveland has now won a season high 6 games in a row.
