Indians lose businessman’s special

In the series finale, the Tigers and Justin Verlander defeated the Tribe 4-1 at the Jake. C.C Sabathia pitched decent, allowing four runs in seven innings, but the Tribe couldn’t do much offensively against the rookie sensation. They managed five hits and couldn’t capitalize on the few chances they did get to score. In the fifth, with runners on first and second and nobody out, Wedge once again did not instruct his player to bunt and move the runners over. He allowed Peralta to swing away and the runners stayed put after Jhonny struck out. Verlander struck out eight and won his 13th game of the season. On the bright side, Joe Inglett got his first career Major League home run.
