Sabathia struggles, Tribe falls

Jhonny Peralta doubled and homered and Coco Crisp had three hits, including a ninth inning home run off closer Francisco Rodriguez, but the Indians fell to the Angels 5-4. C.C. Sabathia wasn’t terrible but he certainly wasn’t all that great either, surrendering four runs on eight hits in 6.1 innings of work, with all the runs coming on a pair of two-run homers by Garrett Anderson and Josh Paul. While Coco and Peralta delivered last night, the rest of the offense continued to struggle, with Casey Blake, Victor Martinez, Travis Hafner and Aaron Boone going a combined 0-16 with six of the team’s eight strikeouts.
