Indians get sweep on Peralta’s walk-off slam

Another superb job by the bullpen and a clutch home run gave the Indians a sweep of the Blue Jays as they won 3-2 in walk-off fashion Wednesday night. Jeremy Sowers continued his fantastic pitching. He didn’t get the win but kept the Tribe in the game, allowing two runs in 5 2/3 innings. The runs both came in the sixth when Sowers ran into a little trouble. Thankfully, the resurgent Tribe bullpen came to the rescue and put up zeros on the board the rest of the way. Fernando Cabrera and Rafael Betancourt pitched over four scoreless innings of relief leading up to the extra-inning heroics. Jhonny Peralta sent one to the right field seats in the bottom of the 10th off B.J Ryan to give the Indians their second series sweep of the month. The Indians got all three of their runs on solo homers, the other two coming from Travis Hafner, who hit number 41 and 42.

The Indians close the month of August on a tear, winning seven of eight. Overall, they finished 18-10 in the month and are “only” six games under .500.
