Tribe loses another season opener

The 2006 season started the same way the previous one ended: a loss to the hated White Sox. The Indians tied it up 3-3 in the fourth inning before both teams were forced to wait through a nearly three hour rain delay. The Sox came out after the break and proceeded to put up seven unanswered runs in the next three innings to beat the Tribe, 10-4. Indians starter C.C Sabathia had to remove himself from the game in the third after an apparent abdominal strain. Tribe pitchers had trouble all night finding the plate, walking nine batters.

I guess the Tribe didn’t get the memo that the season has started already. Their play was about as sloppy as the field conditions. Let’s cross our fingers that C.C’s injury is not too serious and hopefully we can get our act together before Tuesday.
