Westbrook wonderful in win

In the Indians’ 5-0 win over the Kansas City Royals Wednesday night, they managed only three hits. But with the help of seven walks and Travis Hafner’s third inning grand slam, the Tribe was able to put up five runs on the board and win their second straight. Jake Westbrook pitched his best game of the season by far, surrendering only six hits in his complete game shutout. The sinkerballer did was he does best, recording 18 ground ball outs.

“Jake had it working,” manager Eric Wedge said. “He didn’t just do a good job of being aggressive early in the count, but he also stayed aggressive late. He really commanded the ballgame.”

Man, if Jake pitches like this for the rest of the season we’ll be in pretty good shape.
