Sabathia solid, but offense silent

Sabathia did what he could but failed to get much help from the offense as the Indians lost 4-1 to the Twins Saturday night. C.C went seven innings and gave up 10 hits and three runs. However, the bats were quiet as their lone run came in the first as a result of a fielder’s choice by Victor Martinez. They could not figure out Twins starter Carlos Silva and missed some rare scoring opportunities when they had the chance. Grady Sizemore went 2-for-4 and really was the only one to find any success at the plate.

Peralta committed another stupid error, his 16th of the season, and continues to struggle at the plate. After a strong July, his monthly numbers have declined. I’d like to think he fits with this team in the future, but my patience is running out and he’s giving Tribe fans reason to think otherwise.
