Tribe end road trip on high note

The Indians toyed with the idea of more late-inning drama Thursday night but pulled away for an 8-4 victory over the Royals. The win gave the Tribe a series victory and ended a nine-game road trip. Losers of three of their first four, they were able to turn it around and concluded their trip on a winning note, going 5-4. Starter C.C Sabathia put his team on his back and earned the victory. He went eight innings, allowed three earned runs, and threw 120 pitches as he got his ninth win of the season. With the game tied at four in the eighth, Andy Marte doubled in the go-ahead run. Victor Martinez and Ryan Garko each homered in the ninth to put the game to rest. Marte, in one of his best games since joining the major league club, went 3-for-4 with two doubles and three RBI.

This is what we need to be seeing from this kid. He’s young, inexperienced, and is still learning, but it’s important for him to put together a solid September. After all, he was the #6 prospect in all of baseball at the start of the season.
