Sowers slips in rain

In his last start of the season, Jeremy Sowers had a rough first inning in which he gave the Royals an early 2-0 lead. Sowers, boasting a sub-2 ERA over his last nine starts, wasn’t nearly as sharp Tuesday as he and the Tribe lost 5-3 to the Royals in the 1,000th game in Jacobs Field history. The Indians attempted to chisel away at the Royals’ lead throughout the game but just weren’t able to muster enough offense on a dreary and rainy night. Jhonny Peralta, Joe Inglett, and Ryan Garko provided the RBI’s for the Tribe.

In a game that really wasn’t all that exciting, the Royals’ battery mates provided some interesting between-inning entertainment. In a rather bizarre moment, Royals starter Runelvys Hernandez got into it with his catcher, John Buck, after the third inning. After he ended the inning with a strikeout of Garko, Hernandez and Buck proceeded to throw punches at each other in the dugout. Dude, you just struck a guy out, what in the world do you have to be upset about? The fight ended and both remained in the game. Weird, but funny nonetheless.
