Tribe disposes of Cards for second straight win

C.C Sabathia returned to form as he pitched eight outstanding innings in the Indians’ 3-1 win over the Cardinals Tuesday night. Sabathia surrendered only a run and five hits over the eight innings and bounced back from some rough previous starts. Ronnie Belliard started the Indians off on the right foot by hitting a two-run home run in the first off Cardinals starter Anthony Reyes. Victor Martinez gave them their third run with his RBI single in the seventh. The Tribe won back-to-back games for the first time since June 1 against the White Sox. With the victory, the Indians are guaranteed to win the three-game series against the Cards, which makes it their first series victory since the aforementioned battle with the Sox.
