Tribe picks up rare series victory

The Grady Sizemore show took center stage on Sunday. The center-fielder highlighted an offensive clinic with two home runs as the Tribe rolled over Kevin Millwood and the Rangers 11-6 Sunday afternoon to give them a series victory. Texas scored three in the fifth off Jake Westbrook to cut the Tribe lead to one but the Indians bounced right back and responded with five in the top of the next inning. Sizemore had a pair of two-run homers on the day, one of which came in the fifth via an inside-the-parker.

“When you talk about doubles, triples or inside-the-park home runs, the first two or three steps out of the box are what give you a chance to do it or not,” Wedge said. “That’s the way Grady gets out of the box every time.”

He and Aaron Boone led the charge offensively and finished with two hits and four RBI on the day. Westbrook allowed five runs in as many innings but still managed to pick up his 14th win of the season. The last time the Tribe faced Millwood, he pitched like a Cy Young Award winner and had them fooled all game. They were able to get to him early and often on Sunday.
