Cleveland sweeps doubleheader.

Saturdays day/night doublehead saw the Indians pick up right where they left off from friday with more last secod heroics.

Kansas City starter Odalis Perez gave the Indians lineup fits as it would take 6 innings for Cleveland to finally break through.

To start the 6th, Grady Sizemore took first on a lead off walk as Jason Michaels would follow up with his 9th home run of the season.

C.C. Sabathia dominated another start going 8 strong and striking out 10 with only one walk and 5 hits. His efforts were thrown away when the indians bullpen and several errors allowed the royals to tie the game.

Jason Davis started the 9th but only retired the first batter. Mark Teahan sent a ball to third base but Andy Marte couldnt get a clean play on it. Hector Luna botched a simple ground ball off the bat of Reggie Sanders allowing Teahan to advance. Ryan Shealy struck a single to bring the Royals within 2.

Jason Davis hit John buck to load the bases and allowed the next batter Esteban German to plate another run. Betancourt was called in but gave up the game tying run on a sac fly by David Dejesus.

Mark Grudiezlanek nearly gave the royals the lead on a well hit ball that get blown around by the wind but Jason Michaels took a great approach to the ball and got the out.

Perez walked Victor Martinez with the bases loaded and then surrended another run with Jhonny Peralta tagging a single to centerfield.

Hector Luna drew a leadoff walk to start the 9th. Luna advanced to second on Aaron Boones sacrifice bunt. Grady Sizemore was intentionally walked and would ultimately set up Travis Hafners walk off single to win game 1.

Hafner got a 2-1 pitch and roped it into right centerfield scoring Luna to end the game.

Game 2.

The deciding factor that gave Cleveland a chance to win this game was Kelly Shoppach being able to keep the royals baserunners in check.

Kelly Shoppachs advantage over Martinez was clearly seen when he gunned down Joey Gathright in the second. Kelly would get Gathright at second again when a pitch bounced in the dirt that sent Gathright running, Shoppach found the ball and delivered a perfect throw to get the out.

His defense would again prove critical when Reggie Sanders was pinch running for Mike Sweeney. Mark Teahan struck out and Sanders took off to second but kelly threw out Sanders as well. Hafner would once again play the hero after the inning started tied at 4. Kansas City scored a run in the top of the inning off reliever Tom Mastny to give the Royals a 5-4 lead.

Grady Sizemore wasted no time as he launced a 2-0 pitch into the right field stands to tie the game as the rally was just beginning.

The inning continued when Mark Grudzielanek botched a ground ball off the bat of Jason Michaels. The Hit and Run was put on which gave Michaels a good jump that allowed him to score when Hafner ripped a 3-2 pitch to right-center that gave the indians the lead.

Brian Sikorski would get the win after Davis was kept in the pen after his game 1 debacle.

The Indians have won 5 straight games and two straight series after they took 2 of 3 from the angels.

The series finale is currently on with the Indians already up 11-0 with Hafner hitting his 6th grand slam of the year.
