Sowers wins number six

Jeremy Sowers overcame a tough first few innings but managed to settle down and get his sixth win of the season as the Tribe beat the Tigers 4-2. The rookie, who won his third straight start, gave up two runs and four hits in the second inning but pitched well the rest of the game and got enough support from his offense. Jhonny Peralta, Shin-Soo Choo, Joe Inglett, and Victor Martinez all contributed RBIs for the Tribe. After they led 4-2 after three, the Indians left it up to Sowers and the bullpen, who all did their job in shutting down the Tigers’ lineup.

Fernando Cabrera relieved Sowers to pitch two scoreless innings, including four strikeouts, and Rafael Betancourt pitched the ninth to get the save. Between the two, they did not allow a hit in three innings. Pretty impressive considering how dreadful the Tribe’s bullpen has been this season.
