Peralta’s slam gives Tribe series win

A five-run sixth inning helped propel the Indians over the Tampa Bay Devil Rays by a score of 9-4 Sunday afternoon. Four of those runs came off the bat of Jhonny Peralta, who belted a grand slam. Quite unexpected for a guy who last homered on July 13.

“I saw the bases were loaded,” Peralta said, “and I thought, ‘A grand slam would not be too bad right here.'”

Travis Hafner and Ryan Garko also went deep as every Indian hitter got a hit in the game. Kelly Shoppach continues to hit the ball well, going 3-for-5 with two RBI. Jake Westbrook went seven innings and got his 10th win of the season for the Indians. The Indians were able to recover nicely from a disasterous Friday and pulled out two straight victories.
