MLB: Tribe claws back to victory in the 9th by Trent Harrison
Staring at a 5-0 deficit after the 1st inning, Tribe manager Eric Wedge knew it was about time to see what his boys were made of. They responded by slowly climbing back, thanks to a 3 home run performance by journeyman Jose Hernandez, and going up by one going into the ninth. The Tiger's Bobby Higginson sent one yard to re-tie the game, but the bottom of the inning saw the tribe load up the bases for Jeff Liefer to drive home the winning run on a Sacrifice Fly. Tribe Starter Steve Watkins struggled to get out of the 1st, but managed to settle down and with the help of a few relievers they stymied the Tigers' hitters. Reliever David Riske got his second win in relief. Watch out for this Tribe lineup guys, your going to be hearing names like Casey Blake, Ben Broussard, and last year sensation Victor Martinez for quite some time. These teams both have two games left in gearing up for what should be exciting seasons for both clubs.
