Home run blasts give Tribe victory at Busch

It finally happened. The Indians broke out the bats as they won their first series opener since May 23. Ten series in a row had gone by without the Tribe winning the first game of a series until Monday night’s 10-3 romp over the slumping St. Louis Cardinals, who lost their seventh straight. The Indians were aided by four home runs, two by Travis Hafner, and seven extra-base hits. Grady Sizemore and Todd Hollandsworth hit the other two for the Tribe. Cliff Lee continues his strong month of June, allowing only two runs in six innings as he earned his seventh win of the season. Besides the pitchers, Aaron Boone was the only Indian not to get a hit.

Hollandsworth mentioned a few weeks ago that he wanted more playing time. Due to injury, he got his chance to play on a regular basis and is making the most of his opportunity.
