Indians lose tight one in extras

With the game tied in the 10th, Twins left-fielder Jason Tyner hit one of his two RBI singles of the game to give Minnesota the 3-2 extra inning win over the Tribe. With the exception of Jason Michaels’ two-run homer in the sixth, the Indians couldn’t do much off starter Brad Radke and the rest of the Twins’ bullpen. The Tribe could only manage six hits in the ballgame. After Paul Byrd exited in the sixth, the pen did its job of holding the Twins scoreless until Ed Mujica surrendered the game-winning hit in the 10th. That breaks an amazing streak of 46 2/3 innings of work for Mujica without allowing an earned run. The long string of innings dates back to early 2006 when he was still in Double-A Akron.

Brad Radke had his trademark changeup working very effectively and the Tribe had difficulties with it all night. He can’t get it up there like he used to, but Radke still knows how to pitch and still possesses above average off-speed stuff. The Indians are a very aggressive team offensively and pitchers with good changeups will always seem to be of concern for the Tribe.
