Big Unit keeps Tribe bats silent

He’s struggled for awhile now but Johnson was able to temporarily get back on track Thursday night. Unfortunately for the Tribe, it was Randy, not Jason. In the battle of the Johnsons, Randy allowed only one run in over six innings as the Yanks beat the Indians again, 6-1. Jason, on the other hand, kept the Tribe in the ballgame until he ran into some trouble in the sixth. With the game still in reach at 3-1, Jason gave up three in the inning, including a two-run Andy Phillips homer, to essentially put the contest to bed.

“Not good,” is how Johnson described this latest outing. “I didn’t pitch as well as I should have.”

The suddenly anemic Tribe offense could only manage one run, which came as a result of Ben Broussard’s double play groudout in the fifth. The Indians have now totaled just one run and ten hits in their last two games.

Great, just what we need, an entire offense going into a slump at the same time. That little break Peralta received really seemed to help a great deal…0 for 3, 2 K’s. As for Jason Johnson, the guy has absolutely no poise or mental toughness on the mound. The dude cracks under pressure. He can never bear down and get an out when his team needs one. I feel guilty even wasting my time talking about him anymore.
