Boone and Elarton spark Tribe

Don’t look now, but Aaron Boone is heating up. I know, it’s only been a few games, but maybe Shapiro and Wedge just might be proven right for having faith in him. Last night Boone blasted two home runs to power the Tribe to a 6-1 victory over the Padres. Boone is 8 for his last 16 in his last four games and is finally driving the ball. Let’s hope this continues.

Another great sign from last night’s game was the performance of Scott Elarton, who won his first road start since 2001. Elarton has been a different pitcher since his turn was skipped in the rotation, going 3-0 with a 2.70 ERA in his last five starts.

Finally, Grady Sizemore continues to put together a fantastic season. Last night he almost hit for the cycle, and he is now tied with Ichiro for the leaque lead in triples.
