Tribe thumps Omar and the Giants

A three-run lead heading into the ninth inning turned into an eight-run win for the Indians after they scored five runs on seven-straight singles with two outs in the top of the ninth. In the end, the Tribe beat the Giants 10-2 behind another superb performance from C.C. Sabathia (5-3), who allowed two runs on five hits in eight innings of work with six strikeouts. Grady Sizemore had three hits and scored two runs from the leadoff spot while Aaron Boone continued to warm up, driving in and scoring two runs with two hits, giving him four multi-hit games in his last six, a 10-for-22 streak (.455) that’s raised his average all the way up to .188. Woo hoo! Omar Vizquel, meanwhile, went 0-4 against his former mates. Man, was it weird seeing Omar in that uniform or what?

On another note, Jhonny Peralta is sleeping with Eric Wedge’s wife. Well, that’s my guess, anyway. How else can you explain Peralta being benched for Alex Cora the past two games even though Cora is mired in a 1-for-18 slump while Peralta is one of only two guys on the team (Coco Crisp) slugging above .490?
