Tribe cruises to another victory

The Indians got three solo home runs, two by Casey Blake, as they wiped away the Devil Rays for the third straight night. The teams had to endure another rain delay but it didn’t seem to matter as the Tribe eased to a 6-1 win. Ryan Garko, Victor Martinez, and Blake all had two hits apiece and Shin-Soo Choo homered for the first time since his grand slam in Boston. Jake Westbrook was solid once again. He allowed the lone run through seven innings as he earned his 15th win of the season. Westbrook, who finished the 2006 campaign with a 4.17 ERA, has a $6.1 million option for next season and after performances like this, it would be in the Indians’ best interest to pick it up.

“I expect [Westbrook] to be back,” Wedge said before Saturday’s game.
